Because of the worldwide pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus which causes Covid-19, Zen Tattoo Studio is working with the government to offer a safe environment for our workers and for our clients. To do so, we have put in place new health and safety measures. These measures are used to help reduce the spread of Covid-19.

Here are the changes that you will notice in our studio:

For our services :
  • To limit the number of people in the studio, we will be working by appointment only for all our services. You can make an appointment through our website or by calling us: 450-933-9398.
  • Consultations and follow-ups will be done via Zoom to also avoid a large gathering of people.
For the client :
  • The client must come ALONE to their appointment, at the given time.

  • To avoid cross-contamination, the client must remove their gloves in the studio.
  • The client must wash their hands for 20 sec at the hand washing station. 
  • The client must fill out a consent from on their smartphone or on our tablet. This is to verify the client’s health condition and to make sure that the client doesn’t have any flu symptoms. 
  • Any client with symptoms of Covid-19 will be refused.
For the employees :
  • Since it is impossible to respect social distancing while offering our services, every employee will be wearing a mask and an eye protection..

Three reasons make us a reference

underline

First, each employee has had many hours of training in sterilization, sanitizing and cross contamination, and they all have received a certification. Second, our manager, Virginia, has a master’s degree from UdeM in biopharmaceuticals and she has worked in two major hospitals in Montreal. She learned a lot of techniques that make her capable of assuring the flawlessness of the sanitary operations at our studio. Third, every month our autoclaves are monitored by an independent laboratory (Germiphene®), to ensure quality check and the proper functioning of our equipment.

At Zen Tattoo Studio, we make sure that all the equipment used in a tattoo session respects in detail every rule that is prescribed by the sterilization protocol of the minister of Health and Social services of Quebec and of Health Canada. Therefore, Zen Tattoo Studio guarantees that the equipment such as the needles, the disposable tubes, the ink, the razors, the plastics protectors and all the medical equipment are used only once.

Regarding the metal tubes, Zen Tattoo Studio guarantees that they have been sterilized completely through a cleaning in an ultrasonic cleaner and a sterilization session in a new, certified and monthly monitored autoclave. This type of sterilization guarantees that any type of microorganism (bacteria and virus) will be denatured and completely destroyed at 100%.
