TwoBirds Tattoo's blog
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I announce that Two Birds Tattoo will be closing it’s doors for good in January 2022. It’s been an incredible journey for us these past 11+years, and we’re so humbled and grateful for the support we’ve gotten from our clients and our amazing community during our time in the Phinneywood neighborhood.
The end of June marks the end of Washington State mask wearing mandates for fully vaccinated people. What an exciting time! However we still feel that we are not out of the woods quite yet with this pandemic, and are still going to require mask wearing in the shop at all times for the forseeable future. Although our artists are mostly fully vaccinated, we are committed to making this a safe place for all! At the end of June the front door will be unlocked during business hours and you can come on by with your mask on and peruse the portfolios, art, and merchandise at your leisure.
GREAT NEWS! King county is allowing personal services like Tattooing to resume business, albeit under lots of new regulations. These are the new requirements for all tattoo appointments moving forward in 2020:
Appointments only - No Walk ins - Door will remain locked during business hours.
Come Alone: To reduce the exposure to our artists and our other clients, please come to your appointment alone, and do not have any visitors stop by.
We have been waiting on bated breath for news of an imminent reopening for businesses like ours for the last month. The new announcement by Governor Inslee is that King County is not ready for Phase 2, but will roll out a modified Phase 1. This will include salons and barbers, which we usually get lumped in with but the stipulation is that appointments are limited to no longer than 30 minutes. It's clear that we will not be included in this. Although some appointments we take would fit in this category no mention of tattoo shops makes us believe it is not our time unfortunately.
Yesterday we learned that the Federal Government is urging to extend the COVID-19 guidelines for social distancing until April 30th at the least. We want to remain vigilant in doing our part to prevent the spread of virus, so we will be postponing all appointments (this includes consults and art checks).
As soon as we can return business as usual, we will be contacting everyone that missed their appointment to reschedule. We have records of everyone's deposits and we will be honoring them toward services as well.
- Because of the rapid developments happening with the Coronavirus Pandemic, the state has mandated that we must close our doors to the public *AT LEAST UNTIL APRIL 1ST* to minimize the exposure of our clients and artists to COVID-19. Two Birds Tattoo will be closed for business during this time. It is our hope to come back April 1st, but there's a strong possibility the closure will need to be longer.

Our very own Ruby Santiago and Morgan Dana will be attending the 3rd Annual All Hallows Tattoo Expo
We are looking for an experienced, full time tattoo artist to join our fun-loving crew. Minimum 3 years experience, with an established clientele preferred. We are a busy custom shop and are looking for a versatile artist that can handle an overflow of clients with both custom work and simple walk-ins. Must be able to work independently, but also be a team player. An extensive portfolio, great communication and organization skills, and punctuality are all things we look for in an artist.
