Krueger Tattoo Studio FAQ

Updated 5.26.20

Here are the details for Krueger Tattoo Studio re-opening during the COVID-19 pandemic:

First of all, safety for everyone is our primary concern. If you do not feel comfortable getting tattooed during this time, please contact us and we would be happy to reschedule your appointment.  Also, please make sure that your bills are paid, and your family is fed, before you spend money getting tattooed




We are operating by an appointment ONLY. No pop-ins, no walk-ins, and no visitors. 

-Please arrive to your appointment on time (as close to the time as possible, please not 20 mins early).  Once you are outside the main doors, please text us that you have arrived…  Click here to text: 715.514.1263.

-Please eat ahead of time.  There will be no eating in the studio.

-Before entering, please put your mask on.  We will take your temperature and ask you a couple of questions regarding your overall health.

-After the health evaluation, you will be immediately shown to a sink to wash your hands. Your cell phone will be wiped down.

-Do not bring anyone with you. No friends/ family/ children, only the client getting tattooed, No exceptions.

-For anyone who is showing any cold symptoms.. even mild.. even allergies, or have been in contact with someone who who has been sick, we ask that you contact us immediately and reschedule your appointment to a later time. (see symptoms: ) This also goes for anyone who has been on vacation in the past 2 weeks. Deposits will transfer. 

-Please be honest with us ahead of time. If we notice that you are sick, or have a temperature, your appointment will be canceled and rescheduled. Your deposit will be forfeited.  We don’t want anyone’s time wasted.

-We will be operating this way until we see fit to adapt it.  This is an evolving situation and we will make changes as necessary.

***  WE ARE TAKING THIS VERY SERIOUS.  All it takes is to contact one person who has tested positive for COVID-19…  Mindy and I will have to shut down the studio for 2 weeks, self quarantine, and get tested.   Any clients that we have been in contact with, will also have to quarantine and get tested.  For the sake of everyone’s safety, please be honest with us, so that we may return to work and stay safe.  ***

AT THIS TIME, THE BOOKS REMAIN CLOSED.  WE WILL NOT BE SCHEDULING ANY APPOINTMENTS, OR CONSULTATIONS.  Any clients with consults on the books will be contacted about doing them by phone, or video conferencing.


Thank you all for your patience and dedication.

-Aaron and Mindy Krueger
