• Covid-19 precautions

    As a small business who deals in direct close physical contact with our customers, we’d like to take a moment to address some changes.

    We are working on an appointment only, NO WALK IN basis. We often book weeks in advance. Make sure to set up an appointment with your artist ahead of time. We do not ever make appts over the phone. Not even for piercing. We ask people to email the artists directly to make sure we have records of conversations and emails to refer back to.

    If you are sick, or have come in contact with anyone who is sick, or have traveled to a high risk area outside of NH in the last two weeks, please reschedule your appointment and do not come into the studio. We will be taking temperatures at the door, and anyone with a temperature higher than 99.0 will be sent away. If you come to your appointment sick your deposit will be forfeited.
    You will need to have email or phone confirmation with your artist before your appointment or you will not be allowed inside the day of your appointment.

    We will be keeping our doors locked. The lobby will be closed. Everything will be appointment only. No walk in traffic is allowed. Let us know when you arrive and we will unlock the door and let you in when we are ready for you. Only you will be allowed inside for your appointment, as the ratio of clients/artist has to be equal or less, and we have to remain 6 ft apart.
    Please email your artist directly to set up an appointment. We do not book for each other, and we do not make over the phone appointments.

    Everyone must still be wearing a mask at all times. You WILL NOT receive our services without a mask, and will be asked to leave if you remove it. The state mandate was lifted, yes, but to protect our clients and artists we still require them.
    Please do not bring in anything that isn’t an essential item. No food or drinks are allowed.

    ***We still can not perform any services at this time that require removal of face masks, no lip, tongue, cheek or nose piercings allowed.***

    We have the right to turn down service to any client that doesn’t follow these rules and ask anyone to leave if they don’t follow the guidelines.
    As a business that takes sanitation very seriously we will do our very best to make sure that we are as careful as can be to assure you a clean, sterile and safe environment. Thank you so much for all of the patience and understanding!
