Everything you must know about getting a tattoo during the Covid 19

The pandemic has had a big impact on everyone. It makes a lot of people unsure if they can go out and get a tattoo as usual, and there will be some people who impulsively do things they may not have even thought about doing before. CNC will walk ni through everything about getting a tattoo during COVID-19.

Is it safe to get a tattoo during COVID?

Absolutely safe!

It is safe for licensed tattoo stores to tattoo during the epidemic. Even before COVID, tattoo shops took cleanliness very seriously and complied with OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens certification, which must be renewed annually because tattoo artists are often exposed to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM).

In addition, in accordance with the CDCÔÇÖs recommendations, many tattoo design stores have taken steps to ensure that hygiene is always maintained in the store, including regular cleaning and frequent hand washing, and providing hand sanitizer to all clients.

Tattoo studios mandate participation in awareness training and implement documentation to ensure safety controls that protect their tattoo clients and tattoo artists from exposure. The professional Tattoo artists are very well versed in cross-contamination and how to eliminate any chance of it occurring.

Furthermore, CNC always provides tattoo disposable products for each tattoo shop, whether it be tattoo needle cartridges, disposable grips, or disposable bags, and all of the tattoo supplies we provide are packaged in sterile packaging. the health department comes every year to make sure proper practices are being used and will issue a new tattoo license upon adoption.

Finally, if you are not feeling well, please postpone your visit to the tattoo parlor.

Can I get a tattoo after having the covid vaccine?

Sure you can.

Clear instructions on the timing of your tattoo in relation to your Covid-19 vaccination are available at
The National Library of Medicine.

  1. If the vaccine is administered in the area of your new tattoo (usually the shoulder), you will need to wait more than a month (at least 30 days) before you can receive the vaccine.
  2. If you do not have a tattoo on your other shoulder, you can get the vaccine on the arm without the tattoo as long as you do not apply the new tattoo within 30 days.
  3. If you are considering getting a tattoo after vaccination, the National Library of Medicine recommends that you wait 30-60 days after your initial or subsequent Covid-19 vaccination.
  4. If possible, avoid the tattooed area (either new or old) at the time of vaccination.
  5. If the tattoo covers both arms, select skin that is free of the tattoo inks within the tattoo.
  6. If there is ink covering all possible vaccination areas, vaccination can be administered within the tattoo as long as it is more than 30 days from the tattoo.

While there isnÔÇÖt much of a presence of specific styles of tattoos due to COVID, we are finding that we are getting more commemorative pieces and tributes to commemorate this disturbing time. Most of them symbolize their solidarity and connection with those closest to them, and the following images may bring you some inspiration related to the new crown tattoo style.

3 Tips for keeping tattoo artists safe during the COVID-19 pandemic

1. Posting signs and pictures on social media that masks must be worn

As tattoo artists, we always wear masks and gloves. which becomes even more important during an epidemic.

One of the most common ways an outbreak spreads is through close person-to-person contact. Through respiratory droplets that people expel when they cough or sneeze, which then land in the mouths and noses of nearby people. Always wear a mask and gloves at all times to protect yourself from catching the virus. Because gloves and masks add an extra layer of protection. Wash your hands immediately after taking off your gloves.

Make sure your customers know ahead of time that they need to wear a mask to enter the store. Post a sign on your door. And post it on your social media or booking site. 

2. Limit the number of your clients

Stagger shifts and limit the number of people in your shop.

The CDC indicates that gatherings should be limited to 10 people or less. This can be accomplished by having shifts between artists to limit the number of people. Tattoo artists could schedule their appointments during the day or in the evening. In this way, artists can still get tattoos and keep their clients satisfied.

3. Clean the tattoo machines and workplace tools regularly to prevent cross-contamination

Whenever possible, tattoo artists should limit their contact with each other and maintain a social distance of approximately 6 feet or so.

High-traffic areas should be cleaned and disinfected regularly. Take extra care when sanitizing equipment, which is extremely important to prevent cross-contamination.

The wireless design of our wireless tattoo machines greatly helps prevent cross-contamination. The use of these tattoo equipment is even more important during an epidemic.
