Current Appointment Protocol Due to COVID-19

LAST UPDATED 8/8/20

Resident artist Olivia Pakitsas

BEFORE BOOKING:

We now tattoo by appointment only. 

Same day appointments are sometimes possible for smaller projects depending on that day’s schedule: please call the shop directly to inquire. Unscheduled inquiries and consultation cannot be done in person at this time.

Please contact your individual artist to begin the booking process, or email the shop with your idea if you don’t have an artist in mind.

Scheduled consults will happen through social media messaging, email, video chat, and in person if the artist determines that is best.

BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT:

If you have been in contact with anyone with known illness or have recently attended a large gathering where social distancing was not maintained, you must wait 14 or more days to schedule your appointment.

Please protect your skin from sun exposure before your appointment. We cannot tattoo any sunburned skin areas until after they are fully healed.

Be sure to eat a good meal before your appointment so you come in ready to get tattooed. We cannot allow food in the studio at this time.

DAY OF YOUR APPOINTMENT:

You must come to your appointment solo. We cannot allow any guests with you into the building at this time. If you are booked with another person that has their own appointment, and you are booked with the same artist back-to-back, you will still need to come in one at a time. Typically you can decide who goes first, and we will let that person in alone at the scheduled appointment time. Then once that tattoo is finished, the first person will be let out and the second client will be allowed in. We appreciate your cooperation with this, and we look forward to the days when we can welcome groups to share the experience like we used to!

A protective mask is required to enter the building, and must be worn at all times, completely covering your nose and mouth.

Please arrive on time. We will not be able to let you in early, and late arrival may not be able to be accommodated with our new protocols. Please call ahead if you will be running late so we can assess the situation.

The door will be locked. Call 978-744-9393 at your scheduled appointment time and we will open the door for you then.

Hand sanitizer will be available to use, this is required on entry.

If you are exhibiting any signs of illness when you come in, you will be asked to return home and we will reschedule you by phone.

Please bring your own beverage as we will not be able to provide that for you at this time. No food allowed in the studio (see above).

We ask for 48 hours or more notice by phone to reschedule your appointment. Less than 48 hours may be subject to forfeiture of your retainer. The exception is in cases of sudden illness, where you must let us know right away, and we will reschedule you 14+ days out.

If you have any questions at all, please email or call, and we look forward to tattooing you very soon!
