IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN OUR GOAL TO CREATE A SAFE AND HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT FOR OUR CLIENTS AND OUR STAFF. THIS IS MORE IMPORTANT NOW THAN EVER!
Below you will find out what we have done to keep all of us safe while we go back to business.
WHAT WE ARE DOING
-We added a plastic shield for our front counters. This keeps viruses and bacteria from transferring between our front desk staff and our clients. This will be a permanent fixture for all our buildings.
-We have switched to an appointment only system for all services. No walk-in traffic will be in the building. Extra time at the end of appointments will be allotted for cleaning of all surfaces, including door handles, and other common surfaces.
-All Staff will wear a Surgical Grade mask (or N95 Mask When available)
-All clients who do not bring their own face covering will be given one at an additional charge.
-We have suspended the piercing of all infants and toddlers. Since they are more often asymptomatic carriers of COVID-19 and have much less control over spitting, coughing, sneezing, etc - for the safety of our staff, only age 16+ will be allowed in the building for piercings. Parents of minors will not be allowed to enter the piercing room, but may wait in the lobby or outside a marked off area near the piercing room.
-Any piercings where a protective mask would have to be removed to perform, are currently suspended. This includes all nose, lip, and tongue piercings.
If you are experiencing a problem with one of the above piercings we will perform those services with additional PPE. No regular jewelry changes for those piercings will be performed, only irritated piercings will be addressed.
-All clients will be pre-screened for risk factors before entering, and temperatures will be taken at the door. Anyone with a fever will not allowed to enter and must call to reschedule. Clients will then be instructed to wash their hands before signing in for their service. All signature pads, and any other common surfaces will be sanitized before and after each use.
WHAT WE NEED YOU TO DO
-Please be understanding and patient. Things will take more time.
-Come ALONE to your appointment. To limit the number of people in the building, only one client per artist can be in the building. The only exception to this is minors with their parent/guardian. The parent/guardian must stay at least 6ft away from the artist and wear a face covering as well. Only ONE parent or guardian may be in the building and no other family or friends can be in the building. Parent/Guardian must stay behind any marked areas at all times.
-Bring a face covering when you come in. If you do not bring one, one will be provided to you at an additional cost. No exceptions. Please wear the mask/face covering at all times while in the building, making sure it is fully covering your nose and mouth at all times.
-Wash your hands before and after any procedure, and during breaks. Try not to touch your face, and do not remove your face covering during the procedure.
-Whenever possible, purchase Jewelry, Aftercare, gift cards, and merchandise from our on-line store instead of coming into the building. We wont be able to ship things as fast as Amazon, but it won't take long.
-If you have ANY respiratory symptoms, please stay home. This includes what may be seasonal allergies. Until there is a vaccine, we cannot be too safe.
