Disclosure Statement

  The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is reported to be extremely contagious. The state of medical knowledge is evolving, but the virus is believed to spread from person-to-person contact and/or by contact with contaminated surfaces and objects, and even possibly in the air. People reportedly can be infected and show no symptoms and therefore spread the disease. The exact methods of spread and contraction are unknown, and there is no known treatment, cure, or vaccine for COVID-19. Evidence has shown that COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life threatening illness and even death.

  As with any invasive procedure, tattooing may involve possible health risks. These risks may include pain, bleeding, swelling, infection, or scaring of the area and nerve damage. Non-sterile equipment and needles can spread infectious disease; it is extremely important to us that all equipment is clean and sterile before use. Tattoos are not easily removed and in some cases can cause permanent discoloration, with the possibility of an allergic reaction. Blood donations cannot be made for a year after getting a tattoo. The body art practitioner will properly cleanse the area before the procedure, use sterilized equipment, employ universal precautions, and provide information on the aftercare of the area being tattooed.
