COVID-19 Policies

What to expect the day of your appointment:



  • Face Masks or Coverings are REQUIRED for all employees/customers and must be worn properly with both mouth and nose completely covered at all times. We have options available for purchase if you do not have your own or forgotten to bring one with you.  Inappropriate face coverings would include: bandanas, single layer neck gaiters, face shields, goggles, scarves, ski masks, balaclavas, shirt or sweater collars pulled up over mouth/nose, or masks with slits, exhalation valves, or punctures.

  • Face Masks or Coverings are still required even if you feel you are exempt from wearing one, regardless of the reason; including but not limited to medical reasons or vaccination.  We would be happy to reschedule your appointment to a later date when these precautions are no longer necessary to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

  • Do NOT enter if you are sick, have been sick, or have been around anyone who has been sick with COVID-19 symptoms or otherwise; or have traveled via plane, cruise line, train or intercity bus in the past 14 days, please contact the studio to reschedule your appointment. Your deposit will still be honored.

  • Please arrive 10 minutes early to ensure adequate time to complete any necessary paperwork.


  • Please arrive ALONE.  No EXTRA GUESTS!  ONLY those receiving services will be allowed entry.

  • Please only bring essential items with you to your appointment.  It is recommended that you eat prior to your arrival, no food will be allowed and only non-alcoholic beverages consumed in the lobby area.

  • We will ask you to use hand sanitizer immediately upon entering


  • You will be required to complete our COVID-19 Informed Consent/Release Form before services will be provided.  If you don't feel comfortable answering the questionnaire, that is okay.  We just ask that you let us know & we will reschedule your appointment to a later date.


  • Everyone is expected to practice SOCIAL DISTANCING (6 ft or more from others) wherever possible.  Please be courteous of others and wait your turn.

  • If you are UNVACCINATED and have traveled via plane or cruise line in the past 14 days, we will kindly ask you to reschedule your appointment till 14 days from the date of your return.

  • If you are fully VACCINATED and have traveled via plane or cruise line domestically in the past 7 days, you will be asked to voluntarily provide proof of vaccination to receive services immediately or be considered unvaccinated.  (Fully vaccinated would be defined as 14 days after you receive the administration of your last dose.)

  • If you are fully VACCINATED and have traveled via plane or cruise line internationally in the past 7 days, we will kindly ask you to reschedule your appointment till 7 days from the date of your return along with voluntary proof of vaccination or be considered unvaccinated.

  • A deposit will be required for all tattoo & piercing appointments to commission services with your artist/piercer subject to our normal deposit policy. The deposit will be applied towards your tattoo or piercing the day of services. All consultations are free.

  • Each artist/piercer reserves the right to implement stricter limitations and guidelines within the confines of their individual space than what BLT policy indicates or advertises if they are not comfortable relaxing recommendations for the safety of themselves and their families.  For example, they may not allow guests or still require masks when BLT policy eventually loosens those restrictions. No tattoo artist/piercer will be allowed to relax restrictions to a greater extent than what BLT policy stipulates.


  • All Sales are FINAL.  No returns, refunds or exchanges including custom orders.  Please see our Policies, Terms and Conditions page for more details.  


  • We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.  Policies are subject to change without notice.


We are proactively cleaning and sanitizing high touch areas frequently and working hard to maintain a safe environment. We are dedicated to maintaining the health & safety of our customers, employees, & the community so we can ensure an easier tattoo & piercing experience for everyone.

Please treat our team members with respect!

Your cooperation and patience are appreciated. We look forward to seeing you soon.
