There have been a lot of policy changes over the past couple years, all of which are intended to keep both the client and the artist safe and healthy! All of our artists are fully vaccinated for Covid-19. From mask wearing to additional sanitation practices, I strive to make my workspace and your experience as safe as possible. In addition to these things, I will be requiring proof of vaccination from Covid-19 in order to get tattooed in my space. I have chosen to take this step to further ensure the health and safety of my clients, the shop, myself and my family. I am not trying to push the vaccine on anyone, and if it is a choice you decide not to make, that's your business. Although if you're on the fence and would like a non-judgemental fact based conversation on why science is awesome and vaccines are effective, I will gladly meet you in that discourse. I respect the autonomy of each human, but in return I ask for the respect for my autonomy too. It was my choice to get vaccinated, it is my choice to provide a service to those I believe are taking all of the available and necessary precautions to prevent the spread of deadly diseases.
Please be prepared to show proof of full vaccination at your appointment. This means any applicable boosters as well.

The following will brief your on shop policies for COVID-19 and what to expect.
As your appointment date approaches and any of the following apply to you, please email me and let me know so we can chat about how to proceed accordingly. If you:
1.) feel sick, have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
2.) travelled outside CA in the last 14 days.
3.) have had a recent exposure to someone with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis.
Please call into the shop when you arrive and I will let you in. Our door may remain locked during business hours to keep prohibited 'walk-in' traffic. The shop phone number is:
When it is time for your appointment, please be advised that:
*Proof of vaccination for Covid-19 and a valid Photo ID is required.
*There will be no visitors allowed during your procedure without prior discussion as we are trying to keep the number of people in the shop each day to a minimum. Please bring any necessities you may need (snacks, water bottle, phone, etc) as we will not be allowing food deliveries. We do have a place to refill your water on site and a fridge for snacks if needed.
*I do ask that my clients wear a face mask that covers your nose, mouth and chin upon entering the studio and for the duration of your procedure. While I do wear a mask at all times, unless a mask mandate is in place, other artists or clients in the studio may not be wearing masks. My station is distanced from others but if you would like everyone in the shop to mask during your appointment please do not hesitate to let me know and I will take care of it prior to your entrance to the shop. (My coworkers are very respectful in this matter and 100% have no problem doing this when I request it. This is part of my pledge to create a space that you feel safe getting tattooed in).
*Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between clients and proper time to sanitize the workspace between clients. If you show up significantly early for your appointment, we ask that you wait in your car to allow the other clients proper space to finish up their procedure and exit the building.
*We will do our best to reduce the number of clients in the shop at any one time.
*Please maintain social distance from other clients and artists when you are in the shop and stay within your artist's station unless you are washing your hands or using the bathroom.
I look forward to seeing you and am happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every client, safe in our studio. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I value your trust and patience and look forward to welcoming you to the shop!
*Cancellations with less than 48 hours notice may be subject to forfeiture of a deposit. 'No-call No-show' appointments will lose the ability to book future appointments.
