So please, please, please, don’t come in to get tattooed if you’re starting to get sick, running a fever, or very recently getting over an illness. Being sick can seriously compromise your healing, and coming in and getting an artist sick will compromise their ability to work
The very minute you think you’re getting sick, start communicating with your artist to give them the option to reschedule you, and often times they will be grateful enough to let you keep your deposit, but do NOT wait until your three or four days into a flu and contact them the day before your appointment to cancel and expect to keep your deposit.
Also, if you’re sick the week BEFORE your appointment but expect to be over it before your appointment, start communicating with your artist to give them the option to reschedule you at their discretion, and again there’s a pretty good chance you’ll be able to keep your deposit.
Not just for our artists sake, but for the health of our other clients as well, waiting until the day of to walk in sniffling and saying,”I think I’m over it.’ will most likely get you sent home and cost you your deposit.
Again, we do or best to respect your time, so in return please do your best to respect ours.
