RED ROCKET TATTOO is currently on pause until the New York safety metrics add up to allow us to safely reopen. WHAT COMES NEXT?

Due to the the Covid-19 Pandemic and our EPICENTER LOCATION, Red Rocket Tattoo has had to close its doors temporarily until it has been deemed safe to re-open.  We are all moving through this interrupted period with grace and fortitude.

As anxious as the world is to get back to work and some kind of normal, we recognize the changes that have to be made in order to continue.  While we are waiting and watching the world slowly re-open, we are learning how to implement the best and safest procedures and avoid the mistakes of those bravely starting to work again.

RED ROCKET TATTOO is developing rigorous and State Compliant procedures which will allow us to minimize risk and increase our HEALTH SAFETY STANDARDS.  The Tattoo Industry already has health safety standards on the level of a doctor's office and far above that of a hair salon, barber shop or nail salon.  Already all of our artists are trained in UNIVERSAL PRECAUTIONS AND CROSS CONTAMINATION PROCEDURES and are LICENSED BY THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND MENTAL HYGIENE. Keep in mind we have been wearing gloves as long as we have been tattooing.  We know how!

MOVING FORWARD!

All artists and staff are engaged in an incredibly complete online training course by the given WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION on how to deal with practical aspects of the Pandemic and how to STAY SAFE.  This course is available for everyone at:

OUR STUDIO

We are rearranging our physical space to allow for safe working conditions including bins for outside gloves, hand sanitizer and hand washing station and SOCIAL DISTANCING.  We have a locked door and intercom to prevent unannounced walk ins and insure a more PRIVATE experience.   We are working on processes to minimize exposure and rearranging our work schedule to allow the fewest amount of clients and artists at any given time. We will provide a NEW MASK if needed for all clients to take with them afterwards. There will be wipes to sanitize phones and other items.  Many other details are being fine tuned as the story develops.

 

We will be working on an appointment basis for the time being.  We will not allow the normal WALK INS but will have a system to arrange a SAME DAY APPOINTMENT.  Anyone currently with an appointment on hold will be considered first in line as we slowly open.  Your artist or our shop manager will reach out to you as soon as well open to set it up.

STAY TUNED!

GO FUND ME

We have humbly started a GO FUND ME campaign to try to raise some relief money for our artists and staff as well as to handle some shop expenses.  To date, we have all applied for everything available to us, the SBA, PPP, Unemployment, grants, loans, and assistance programs and done our due diligence, forking over loads of sensitive informations on confusing applications.  We have created work and goods for sale and new tattoo designs.  The bills continue.

PLEASE SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR YOUR FAVORITE SHOP!
