Normally you would be asked to fill out a consent form on the day of your appointment. To help reduce cross contamination in the shop, you will be sent an online consent form which will need to be completed the night before your tattoo. It is essential that this form is filled out with correct and true details. There will be some questions relating to COVID-19, and what kind of contact you have had with people or if you have been exhibiting symptoms.
Bring photo ID - if you look under 18 and have no ID I will not be able to tattoo you.
Wear sensible, comfy clothing, suitable to be able to access the area getting tattooed. You may want to wear nipple covers/ plasters for sternum/rib pieces but these can also be provided when you come in. Please wear socks as you will be asked to leave shoes at the door.
No heavy makeup or fake tan in area of tattoo
Have a decent meal before your appointment. No food will be permitted within the shop. Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your appointment to keep the skin hydrated.
We can have as many breaks as needed, you will be asked to follow strict hygiene procedures for each break.
We are asking that only the person booked may attend - no visitors.
Please only bring the bare minimum, i.e coats bags etc. Mandatory wipe down of phones, other personal effects will be stored in a sanitised bin away from the tattoo area.
You may also be required to have a temperature taken, contactlessly.
You will be provided with a single use face mask which must be worn at all times, and asked to wash/sanitise your hands on arrival.
The shop door will remain locked between appointments. We will be operating by appointment only, and all consultations will be carried out online. Please do not intend on entering the shop if you do not have an appointment.
If you are more than 15 mins late your appointment may be forfeited.
An outline/sketch of your design will be sent to you the night before appointment for you to check over and make any adjustments. A stencil of this is used to get the size/position right, and tattoo from that :)
Most importantly, if you are experiencing cold-like symptoms, have a temperature or have come into contact with anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19, please get in touch as soon as possible to re-schedule your appointment. Your deposit will be honoured.
There are some big changes ahead for everyone at the moment, and as always customer safety is at the forefront of our business. It is a lot to take in but we are so looking forward to getting back to work. Thank you to all our lovely customers, and see you in the shop!
