Covid-19 Protocol – Update

Dear clients, friends and family,

 

Due to the increasing number of cases, we are taking precautions as per Health Canada’s agenda and the Regional Health Authority, to stay ahead of the curve and remain open. In addition to this our costs have gone up considerably due to the availability of disposable coverings, tape, gloves and other PPE that we need to do our jobs and keep you safe. As such some things are changing. *

 

  • All appointments will be 18+ and by appointment only until further notice! Due to Covid-19 walk-ins will no longer be offered. At times we may still post that we have time available, in which case you can book it and show up at the time given to you. Please, under no circumstances, come to the shop to book without a consultation appointment. To book a consultation, or an appointment, find us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Nomadictattoo/ or give us a call or text 306-662-6200. We strongly encourage clients to book a consultation appointment for all medium to large scale Custom Tattoos. Please note that you will be expected to put down a deposit and book during your consultation. If you are not serious about booking please do not book a consultation appointment. 

  • Cash or Etransfer will be the only accepted forms of payment.

 

  • All clients must shower before their appointment and wear clothes void of lint, dirt (this includes drywall particulates, paint etc.), and animal hair. Do not come directly from the gym and refrain from going to the gym for at least 10 days to 2 weeks after your appointment to avoid infection. Clients who are drunk, hungover, on drugs, taking drugs or herbal remedies that thin the blood, juicing, pregnant, breastfeeding, epileptic, sunburnt, covered in sweat, un-showered or just unhygienic, will be turned away and will lose their deposit. Please drink lots of water and come hydrated to your appointment.

   

Custom Tattoo Clients - it is especially important that you shower prior to your appointment, wear clothing that is appropriate for the area that you are having tattooed. Clients that have an excess of hair where they will be tattooed are encouraged to use clippers or shave the area prior to their appointment in an effort to save time. Please refrain from bronzers, tanning, lotions or anything that contains or smells of coconut prior to your appointment due to allergies of the tattooer.

 

Aesthetics (PMU) Clients – it is especially important that you shower prior to your appointment and remove all make-up. Please refrain from bronzers, tanning, lotions and make-up prior to your appointment. Clients must also avoid shaving, exfoliating, and waxing for several weeks prior to their appointment. In addition, if you wear contact lenses they need to be taken out prior to your appointment.

 

  • Please remove your footwear before entering the shop and make sure that you are wearing clean socks. Do not come in flip flops or open toed shoes unless you have brought clean socks with you to put on before entering the shop. Bare feet will not be allowed unless you are having your foot tattooed, in which case your sock can be removed once you are in the Custom Tattoo and Aesthetics (PMU) area.

  • Do not show up early for your appointment! To avoid interactions between clients and in order to practice social distancing as required whenever possible, please show up at the time assigned to you. We will do our best to try and stagger appointments to keep those interactions to a minimum and to maintain a one client at a time (and single guest) standard in accordance with the Regional Health Authority. As always, the shop will be cleaned between clients to the highest standard. Please remain outside of the shop until you are given the ok to enter. 

  • Upon entering you will be required to wear a mask if you haven’t got one on already. Once in the chair depending on your procedure you will be allowed to remove it. 

 

  • PPE - All clients must wear a mask, unless your procedure hinders you from doing so. You are encouraged to bring your own as we have limited stock, however if you do not have a mask, we will provide you with a disposable one. In some cases we may make you use a disposable one for cleanliness, depending on your procedure. In addition, please do not under any circumstances wear disposable gloves to our shop, you will be asked to remove them before entering.

  • Only one client (18+), and maximum one guest (who will have to remain in the waiting area), will be allowed in the shop at all times. The shop door will remain locked indefinitely and will be opened only to allow clients in and out. Please leave the entourage and the kids at home as they will not be allowed in the shop with you under any circumstance. No siblings, friends, hand holders, family etc. in the shop with you. Even if you are from the same household or traveled together for your appointments on the same day. Only 1 client will be allowed in the shop at a time. No exceptions!

  • Should you have or have had any symptoms of a flu, cold or Covid-19, or have been in contact with someone who has, within 14 days prior to your appointment, please message us on Facebook to re-book 72 hours prior to your appointment.

 

  • Re-booking - Failure to cancel and re-book 72 hours prior to your appointment will mean that your deposit is lost and you will have to re-deposit and re-book for another day. In addition to this you are only allowed to rebook an appointment once without loss of deposit and this must be done when rebooking. Please have a date(s) available when rebooking. Should you fail to rebook a new date and stick to it at the time of rebooking you will lose your deposit. We will not hold onto deposits while waiting for you to find a time that works for you as it is impossible to keep track of this without moving the deposit to an alternative date. In some instances, depending on the amount of time you have booked for your appointment, there may be additional fees. All booking fees are non-refundable. Please refer to Custom Tattoo Services and Aesthetics (PMU) services on our web site www.nomadictattoo.com for more details. 

  • No shows will lose their deposit. Depending on the service and the amount of time booked, other fees may be encored. If you no show a consultation appointment, depending on the circumstance you may be required to pay a rebooking fee of $40 for wasted time.  

  • Other than water, pop or juice, with a resealable lid, or single serving candy packs, no outside food or snacks will be permitted. No subs, salads or other foods will be permitted. This too may be subject to change without notice as our guidelines from the Regional Health Authority change.

  • No cell phones will be permitted to be used while in the shop. They are to be put on silent and put away during your appointment outside of the tattoo area. If absolutely necessary, you can check your phone, when we take breaks, with permission from a team member. No photographs, phone calls, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, texting etc. or anything that requires the use of your camera inside the shop without prior permission from staff. No exceptions!

  • You will be required to re-sanitize your hands upon re-entry into the Custom Tattoo and Aesthetics (PMU) area if you leave to have a smoke, check your phone (if you have been given permission to do so) or go to the washroom.

  • Do not forget your Government Issued Photo ID! You will be required to fill out a form and or a questionnaire in which your valid government issued ID will be photocopied to. For legal reasons, failure to present this at the time of your appointment will mean that your deposit is lost and you will have to re-book for another day. In some instances, depending on the amount of time you have booked for your appointment, there may be additional fees. Please refer to Custom Tattoo services and Aesthetics (PMU) services on our web site www.nomadictattoo.com for more details.
