Important info for our re-opening!


All the artists at Black Hive are excited to be back at work, but as most of you now, Black Hive has and will always put cleanliness and proper procedure first. Because of this, we are have done some work around the shop to ensure an even more sanitary environment, but we’re going to need your help.

To that end, here are the new MANDATORY procedures that are in place for all clients to ensure the health of yourself as well as the artists at Black Hive.

1) Come alone to appointments. We can no longer allow guests in during your tattoo appointment.

2) Come as close to your appointment time as possible. We are not allowing entry to clients more than 5 minutes before their appointment time to reduce crowding in our lobby.

3) We will no longer be observing “public hours” in the immediate and/or foreseeable future. All work will be done strictly by appointment only for the safety of our clients and our artists.

4) Clients will be required to wash their hands immediately after entering the building. Afterwards, please make an effort not to touch any doors, handles, walls. If you do, please ask your artist for hand sanitizer.

5) All clients must bring and wear a CLEAN or NEW face-mask. *Employees will be wearing a new mask for every client.

Thanks again for all your patience and loyalty during this trying time. We appreciate each and every one of you and can not do what we do with out you!
