Safety & Covid-19
We will work on an appointment only basis for the foreseeable future so will be closed to everyone but booked appointments. We will still take bookings for consultations.
Please arrive on time (not early) which will avoid the need to sit in the waiting room as we’ll be slightly staggering appointment times to avoid people passing through reception at the same time.
Please attend your appointments alone, and with a minimum of personal belongings.
Everyone will have their temperature taken on arrival with a contact free thermometer. If you have an elevated temperature of 38 degrees or higher, we’ll need to reschedule your appointment. You will also be asked to scan the QR code on arrival for the NHS Test & Trace programme. If you don’t have the app you’ll be asked to fill out a separate form.
You’ll need to wear a mask throughout your appointment. You can either bring your own or we have disposable ones available for purchase at the cost price of 50p.
We would ask that you bring only water with you as you’re not allowed to drink anything else or eat on the premises. We have a water dispenser and disposable paper cups. If you leave for a break at any time you will need to re sanitise your hands and have a clean/new mask for the next part of your session.
You’ll be asked to use hand sanitiser on arrival and at intervals throughout your appointment. You can of course use our hand washing facilities as well.
We are lucky enough to have plenty of space in our tattooing areas so we can be socially distanced from other artists and customers but we would still ask you to be considerate of others when moving around the shop.
In addition to these measures the shop will continued to be cleaned regularly, in between clients as always, to ensure the hugest hygiene levels. Staff will have their temperature checked each day and will wear additional PPE.
We already make customer records with your name and contact number for booking purposes-these may also now be shared with NHS Test and Trace should the need arise.
IF YOU HAVE ANY COVID-19 SYMPTOMS OR HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH ANYONE WHO HAS PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE SHOP. CONTACT US TO REBOOK YOUR APPOINTMENT.
