Two Tides Tattoo Covid-19 Guidelines

As you are all aware many things have changed over the past several weeks and we at Two Tides Tattoo are committed to your safety as well as the safety of our Two Tides Tattoo family. Therefore we have implemented the necessary changes congruent with WorkSafe BC and the Public Health Office recommendations.

We are very happy to be back at work serving you our clients and we have outlined the following changes that we have made to the way we conduct our business to serve you better.

We have set forth clear requirements for our clients during this unprecedented time.

It’s going to be a change for all of us but it’s for our communities health and safety as we are all in this together.

We are making the following changes:

  • We will no longer be accepting walk-ins until we are advised by the Health authority that it is safe to do so.

    This does not mean we are not accepting new clients. The studio will be by appointment only at this time. New clients can contact Michelle or Trevor at twotidestattoo@gmail.com to set up a consultation with the artist of their choice or can contact the artists via their Instagram page or through their email.

    Existing clients with ongoing work can contact their artist via email to book future appointments.

  • We have installed plexiglass and safety barriers at the front desk and waiting room to ensure proper physical distance and to create a physical barrier when clients are arriving and paying for services.

  • We will have only two artist working at a time. (this may be altered as guidelines are updated by the Public Health Minister and WorkSafe) This will ensure more than the required 2 meters of physical distance between artists. We have also set our occupancy limit to 6 people at all times in the studio. This will be 2 artists , 2 clients and our front desk staff.

  • Two Tides has always had the highest standards in cleanliness and safety and we are amplifying our cleaning procedures to the greatest extent. All of our artists have have their up to date Blood Borne Pathogens Certification and our entire team has completed the Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) through the World Health Organization.

    We will be cleaning and disinfecting all surfaces especially “high touch” surfaces before and after each client, such as door handles, benches, bathrooms, front desk, barriers, payment terminal and light switches, all with medical grade disinfectants.

    As most of you know the tattoo procedure area has always been cleaned extensively between each client in accordance with PSE Guidelines.

  • All artists will be wearing masks, face shields if appropriate, disposable aprons, or vinyl ones that are disinfected with Cavicide, disposable sleeves, and gloves as always . Desk staff will be wearing masks as well and gloves when needed.

  • IMPORTANT Please read carefully.

    No one will be allowed to enter the studio if they have experienced any cold related or flu like symptoms such as but not exclusive to fever, runny nose, chills, fatigue, sneezing ,coughing etc., or have been in contact with anyone who has had any of the aforementioned symptoms.

    Admission to the studio will not be permitted to those who have travelled outside of BC in the last two weeks or been in contact with anyone who has travelled in the last two weeks.

We have also updated our Customer Guidelines. Each client will be expected to read and sign the guidelines. Thank you for your understanding!
