COVID-19 Safety Plan
What to expect at the studio for the “new normal” with Covid-19 safety precautions and protocols. These are some of the steps we are taking at JAYS AND ARROWS for your safety and ours. Cleanliness has always been held at a very high standard at our studio. Cross Contamination Control and blood-borne pathogen control in our tattooing and shop practices has always been our top priority. We use a wide array of Personal Protective equipment in our daily tattooing process. Including: Nitrile gloves, procedural masks, disposable aprons, and eye protection, as well as single use sterile items and wide array of barrier control items. Many of these practices apply to Covid-19 control, and other viral pathogen control. We use a high-level disinfectant, decontaminant cleaner called CaviCide in our normal post tattoo procedure cleaning, as well as in public areas and high touch areas of the studio. A hand sanitizer station is at the front entrance for my clients use upon entering the studio. Face masks are the “new normal” for clients and artists, and are now mandatory during tattooing practices. Only one client per artist is in the shop at a time. Please call for “walk-ins” to see if we can book you in. The shop is thoroughly cleaned before and after client appointments.
Here are some of the safety measures and studio protocols we have in place.

Anyone who has, symptoms of Covid-19 in the last 10 days. Symptoms include:

The B.C. Covid-19 symptom self-assessment tool can be found online at bc.thrive.health
We are by appointment only at this time.
Clients must now come to their appointments alone. Sorry no friends or family. This will allow me to control the number of people in the shop at one time, and limits the clients and studio to potential exposure.
There is a touchless hand sanitizer station at the front entrance of the studio. I now require clients to use the hand sanitizer, or wash their hands upon entering the studio, after eating or drinking, using the washroom, and before they leave the shop.
Sorry no handshakes or unnecessary physical contact, Please use non-contact greeting methods.
Wearing a face mask in now the “New Normal” in the tattoo industry, and it is mandatory during tattooing practices. Please bring a face mask for your appointment. If you can not obtain a mask one will be provided for you.
Below is a list of Covid-19 studio Safety Plan and Protocols. There is an industry wide provincial requirement to post a copy of these by order of the Provincial Health Officer.

Jays & Arrows is a tattoo company which has been crafted through passion, dedication and hard work. What I took from my mentor, Troy Semkiw is, every ounce of dedication you put into your consultation, sketches, tattoo, after care and sterilization should be the same all the way through.
