Dearest friends and clients,

Painted Lotus has taken a strong approach to client and staff safety throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to update our policies and procedures as new information and health concerns arise, and continue to work our butts off to make our space as safe as it’s always been.

By booking an appointment with us, you agree to the following (in addition to our regular rules):


We are operating BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

    • Please ensure you have an appointment before coming into the shop.

We request that you do self-checks using the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool.

    • If you’re experiencing symptoms before your appointment please email your tattoo artist to reschedule.  Your deposit will be transferred to your new appointment date.

We require you reschedule if you:

    • Have symptoms of cold or flu.
    • Have been in contact with someone with symptoms.
    • Are under a PHO order to self-isolate.

Arriving for your appointment:

    • We are appointment-only!  Come alone. 
      • Do not bring friends or family as they will not be permitted in the building with you. 
    • Masks are MANDATORY at all times in the shop.  No exceptions!  
      • Please put your mask on BEFORE entering the shop.
      • Bring your own mask.
      • We encourage the use of medical masks, N95 masks, or double masking.
    • Food/Beverage:
      • Eat a good meal before coming to your appointment and bring a water-bottle.
      • You may bring a packaged snack with you, we have a designated snack area.
    • You’ll be notified by signage at the door to wait to be admitted. 
      • Only come to the shop if you have a tattoo or consult appointment booked.  All other inquiries will be done through email.
      • Your tattoo artist will meet you at the door at your booked appointment time.
        • If you come early, you most likely will have to wait or be asked to go for a walk and come back for your booked time.


If you do not feel the need to follow these rules, or if you are uncomfortable with them, please wait until we update our policies above to book your appointment. We welcome your input and questions through email (paintedlotustattoo@gmail.com), and encourage you to check back as we update!
