What To Expect When You Visit
COVID-19 Update: Our commitment remains steadfast in maintaining the highest standards for protecting the health and safety of you and our staff. This entails adhering to recommended protocols surrounding social distancing, treatment of personal protective equipment (PPE), and cleaning + sterilization processes.
We are limiting the occupancy at any given time to allow for the recommended 6 feet of distance between everyone. To this end, we have moved to an appointment-only basis and would like to ask that you come alone and with your ID. If you are a minor, you will need to be accompanied by a parent/legal guardian who can bring a valid, non-expired, government issued photo ID and proof of relationship such as a birth certificate or insurance card to the appointment. Since ID's will be verified in person at the time of the appointment, it is important that the ID provided on the release form (links to those on our "Book An Appointment" page) matches that of the person providing the ID in person at the appointment.
Please note that some procedures still require a minimum age of 18.
Also, we are temporarily not offering piercings or installs/removals of jewelry that is located under a standard face mask until the further notice, however, there are many other styles of piercings! Book an appointment to have you Piercer curate a new style today!
If you or anyone in your household are experiencing symptoms, tested positive, or have come into contact with anyone who has tested positive for a viral infection such as COVID-19 within the last 2 weeks, please stay home and call us to cancel/reschedule your appointment.
Masks are required to enter any Deep Roots location. Please wear a mask that fits snugly over your nose and mouth, and does not require you to hold it in place. If you do not have such a mask or forget to bring one with you to your appointment, masks are available for purchase.
When you arrive for your appointment (which you can book online here), a greeter will meet you at the door to test and record your temperature (using a contact-free thermometer). Should you arrive early, or the appointment ahead of you is running behind, you may be asked to wait in your car or in an extra procedure room if one is available, or queue up outside until there is sufficient room inside the studio.
Please eat before your appointment. No outside food or drinks may be in the studio.
The booking times for all piercing appointments have assumed ~5 mins for picking out jewelry. You can preview some of our most celebrated styles here on our website! Please note, not every style is available at every location so if you have your heart set on a particular piece, please give us a call.
If you plan to use your own previously worn jewelry*** for an install or new piercing, it absolutely must be thoroughly sterilized by one of our Piercers. Please plan to drop it off in a clean baggie labeled with your full name at least one hour BEFORE your appointment time and on the same day. We will not hold jewelry overnight.
***An additional note about "previously worn jewelry" - it must never have been worn by anyone else other than you, and if it was not previously purchased from Deep Roots, it must satisfy ALL of the following criteria: 1) meets professional industry standards as set forth by the Association of Profession Piercers; 2) is made of implant-grade ASTM F-136 Titanium, ASTM F-138 Steel, or Nickel-free gold with approved alloys; and 3) comes from an APP-approved vendor, adhering to professional initial piercing jewelry standards.
If you are getting tattooed, please make sure that you are prepared for the time that you have scheduled. This includes, but is not limited to: being on time, having a valid government issued photo ID, being well-fed, not consuming alcohol/narcotics prior, arranging for childcare, having an appropriate amount of funds, and planning to stay as long as scheduled, etc.
In these unfamiliar times, we are grateful to already have a solid foundation of cleaning protocols and sterilization practices. Now we have leveled it up even more, and are looking forward to seeing you soon!
