  • We are all being tested for Covid-19 weekly and have protocol in place to stay home if we are experiencing any symptoms at all. 
  • We are all very strictly quarantined. We are limiting our contact with persons in public settings, not visiting other households or having visitors in our homes.
  • We will be limiting our own personal items in procedure rooms and our devices will be sterilized every day before entering the shop.
  • In addition to our usual cleaning of procedural areas between every session, all high traffic areas and high touch surfaces in the shop will be cleaned between every client. Restroom use will be limited to employees only and those clients with long tattoo sessions.
  • The shop is now equipped with several HEPA filters to keep air clean and moving.
  • We are currently operating on limited hours, by appointment only and are limiting how many clients we see per day. 
  • In order to be compliant with social distancing requirements, the health department suggested a max capacity of 10 people for our shop, but we don't normally have more than 2-3 employess and 2-3 clients in the entire shop at a time. Usually its even less than that.
