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: 

  1. Appointments only - No Walk ins - Door will remain locked during business hours.

  2. 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. 

  3. Wear a mask: Please have a mask already on before you come to the door, and keep it on for the duration of your appointment. If you do not have a mask, one can be provided for you. 

  4. Check-in via text and wait outside/in car: When you arrive, Call 206-297-6005 to let us know you are here. The door will remain locked during business hours so we must let you in. Please do not congregate in groups outside - practice social distancing or wait in your car.

  5. Wash your hands: upon entering the shop you will be asked to immediately wash your hands.

  6. Fill out our forms: Fill out our standard waiver, and answer the health questionnaire relating to your exposure to COVID-19, and we will check your temperature with a touchless thermometer. If you think you have been exposed, are feeling ill, or have a fever, DO NOT COME TO YOUR APPOINTMENT and contact your artist right away to cancel. 

  7. Protect yourself and your belongings: Your clothing must be protected- We can provide you with a disposable smock to protect your clothing, but as these are in very short supply we ask that if you can bring something clean to change into after your appointment is over and before you leave the building, that would be best/least wasteful. Keep your belongings in a plastic bag to keep them clean and out of harm’s way during your visit. 
  8. Please do not bring food. Water is ok, in a sealed bottle/container. 

  9. Refusal of service: Artists and the shop can refuse services to those suspected to be sick, or those refusing to wear a mask while inside the shop, and those refusing a temp taking. 

  10. Please do not bring hatred, racist attitudes, or bigotry into the studio. 
  11. Payments through CARDS or VENMO ONLY to reduce the use of cash, we are only taking payments for services through credit cards or a touch-less system like Venmo. 

For all consults and art checks we will be attempting to do those remotely using video chat as a means of communication. If we feel that the project cannot be started this way, some consult appointments may have to be in person, but must follow the same protocol as above (with the possible exception being you would not need to bring a change of clothing). 

If you had an appointment with us during the end of March or the months of April and May, your artist will be contacting you soon to reschedule. Our schedules will be very limited and we are only booking 1 month at a time.  All new consult requests will be answered shortly, but please be patient as we are seeing a large number of requests coming in and it may take us a while to comb through them.

Thank you for your continued support!
