UPDATE JULY 2021 / “UNDER MASK” PIERCING POLICY: Proof of vaccination (full series completed 14 days prior) is required for any under mask service. Accepted proof of vaccination is Excelsior Pass or vaccination card.
APPOINTMENTS: We highly recommend you make an appointment before coming to The End Is Near, whether it is for a brief consultation, or a piercing.
We accept walk-ins if there is enough social distancing space in the shop, and room in the schedule. When you come for your appointment, please come alone (as we will need to ask others to wait outside anyway). You can book your appointment on our website anytime!
RELEASE FORMS: These are conveniently handled contact-free and online.
CLEANLINESS and SAFETY: We disinfect and sanitize all work stations, chairs, supplies, and common touch points between all clients. All workers will be wearing face coverings. All workers fill out Covid Health Assessment Forms before arrival to work. All workers have been vaccinated.
CLIENT’S RESPONSIBILITY: No mask = no entry. We require that clients wear a mask while in our studio. The world, our nation, and our city is still not completely free of Covid and may never be. As of September 2021, 1 in 500 Americans has died from Covid. Everyone who works at the studio is vaccinated, but we continue to wear masks in order to exercise safety and caution, particularly considering the intimate nature of our services. We are legally permitted to ask this of all patrons, as per New York Code Section 66-3.2 Face-Coverings. Thank you for your understanding.
If your appointment is for an under mask piercing service, you are required to provide proof of vaccination. Acceptable proof is Excelsior Pass or vaccination card.
If you are experiencing any symptoms associated with Covid-19, you must stay home.
If you have come into contact with anyone known to have Covid-19 in the last 14 days, you must stay home.
We will happily work with you to reschedule your appointment.
Come to your appointment alone, and on time. The reception area will no longer be available for lingering.
Do your best to maintain 6’+ of social distancing, and do not touch anything except your own belongings.
Be patient, and be kind, as we continue to uphold the measures of safety that our clients have come to know and trust!
