COVID-19 Protocol and Added Safety Measures

Important Information - MUST READ!

Pure ink Tattoo is doing everything it can to make sure you are safe while here at our studios.

As you may have heard the State of NJ is allowing us to open on 6/22. Starting on Monday 6/15 our receptionist will begin rescheduling appointments from when we closed on 3/18. She will do this in first come first serve order. PLEASE be PATIENT with her. This is a very daunting task; we have 86+ days of appointments to reschedule for 8 artists. We ask that you contact artists via our website for any NEW appointments. This will expedite the entire process.

While we are allowed to open on 6/22 we have not received official operating procedures from the State so we may have to adjust some of the procedures we put in place last month, we will update once we officially know.

Here at Pure Ink Tattoo, we have always kept very high standards of cleanliness and bloodborne pathogen handling. Safety has always been out priority in tattooing and body piercings since our doors opening in 2006, and we will continue to do so. Our artists are trained in bloodborne pathogen handling and are certified yearly. Our artists also use the highest of precautions while in their procedure rooms for not only their safety but our clients as well. We have invested in a UV air filtration system for the entire studio which will be working prior to our opening. This is a state of the art, hospital/military grade system also used on cruise ships and at major hotels which helps ensure the air is safe inside the studio for us all. The system can kill 99% of sneeze germs within 3 feet! We are confident we will be one of the only tattoo studios who invested in a system such as this. Your safety at our studio is our top concern!

Due to the current state of the pandemic with Coronavirus, we are taking extra steps in our tattoo  safety protocol. We will now require our clients to participate in safety guidelines while getting procedures done at any of our studios.

To maintain the health of our staff and our valued customers we are enacting some new rules and procedures for all our clients who are getting work done at each of our studios.

• All Clients will be REQUIRED to wash their hands when checking in as well as entering the procedure rooms. Please check in at our front desk.
• All clients will be REQUIRED to wear a mask or face covering during their procedure.
ONLY the person getting the procedure done will be allowed inside the procedure room. Please DO NOT bring guests!
• We will not be allowing anyone to wait in our lobby. Please arrive 20 minutes prior to your appointment. We ask if you do arrive earlier to wait inside your vehicle or outside and only enter the studio 20 minutes prior to your scheduled time.
• All artists will be following the same strict guidelines that we always followed with the addition of wearing the proper PPE to protect themselves and you the client from any potential health related exposures.

Please communicate with us on how you are feeling. We can easily reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well!

Thanks for understanding! We take your safety and ours very seriously. We hope to see you all soon!
