We know tattoos are about having fun, not about following the rules. But at Classic 13 Tattoo, we follow a number of strict rules, to ensure your safety and guarantee we provide you the highest quality care. It is supremely important to us that we adhere to all these rules all the time, and we want to share them with you so you know the drill. There are some basic rules that all good tattoo studios follow.
Here are the key things to know:
Sterilization and Infection Control
We are totally consumed about hygiene. Cleanliness and proper sterilization are paramount in this business and we adhere to proper protocols always!
As of July 2010, it is illegal to tattoo anyone under the age of 17. The only way for a minor to get tattooed or pierced is that a parent MUST BE PRESENT and both minor and parents MUST have valid IDs, along with the birth certificate of that minor OR guardianship papers of that minor. Additionally, placement of tattoos and piercings on a minor is at the discretion of the artist.
In order to get a tattoo at Classic 13 Tattoo, you must present a valid, state issued ID. It’s the law. Your identification must be current (not expired) and you must present it at the beginning of your appointment. Acceptable forms of valid ID include:
Drugs and Alcohol
It's illegal to tattoo/pierce anyone who is believed to be under the influence. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who is thought to be under the influence. We will, however, welcome you back when you are running properly on all cylinders.
