Tribal Rites is dedicated to offering our customers the best customer service as well as the safest experience in the industry for tattoos and piercings.  With this in mind, we have implemented new internal strategies to combat transmission of Corona virus which include:  more stringent cleaning protocols, limiting contact of surfaces, limiting numbers of customers in the shop, strict adherence to using PPE properly.   Tribal Rites has been an industry leader in promoting proper use of PPE and universal precautions, and we continue this tradition as we move into this new phase of business during a pandemic.  

We ask that our customers also adhere to the new rules.  Please visit the link below before coming to our studios so you know what to expect.  We will be offering loop masks to those who do not have them for the low cost of only $1.  You can keep the mask.
