Due to the Covid-19 issue, we will be closed a short time.
As always, your health and safety are our number one priority.

Although we already take many precautions at the studio to prevent disease transmission.
And feel transmission here is unlikely. We of course have to follow the mandate like all non-essential businesses.
At this time that is through April 30, 2020. 

I realize many of you have appointments and many would like to make appointments. I appreciate that. 
But due to the unpredictable time table at this point, all existing and new appointment request are on hold. 

As soon as there is a time established to re-open we will definitely be happy to get everyone a great appointment time.  
We want the process to be smooth for you & avoid multiple rescheules- I know this has been a difficult time for many! 

If you're already scheduled, your new appointment time will take priority before new appointments of course. 

We're still available through Email,  and first updates will be on our Facebook,  message there too! 
If you'd like to get email updates, just send an email to get on the list 

Reach out if you'd like to talk about getting  some artwork ready  for when we do re-open.
Or if you have questions about any cosmetic or scar work needs. We'd love to help out ! Planning ahead definitely
will get you in sooner when we do reopen. And its good for us all to have normal to look forward to! 

Please stay well during this time and take the recommended precautions

Thank you for understanding- Nikki
