★ Customer notice – PLEASE READ ★
The news we’ve been waiting for – we have had confirmation that we can reopen from April 12th! We’re so excited to be back!
We will be at the studio contacting everybody that has missed an appointment throughout lockdown, and rearranging as much as we can.
Our plan for returning will be similar to before, so to anybody that has missed appointments with both Callan and Roz, please wait until we have contacted you to confirm appointments and rearrangements.
Please only get in touch if you need to cancel your booking or if you want to discuss designs/ideas or send reference. We have another huge task of rearranging everyone’s missed appointments from the last 3+ months, plus some from November, and Callan is also still fully booked ahead of these times too, so please bear with us with our reorganising.
We will be working through our customer list as quickly as possible and nobody will be missed, if you’re yet to be contacted please don’t worry, we will be getting to you!
• Once all of Roz’s missed appointments have been rearranged, her diary will be back open for new and continuing work.
• Callan’s diary will still remain closed for new clients for now, due to being fully booked as well as having a large amount of missed appointments and ongoing projects to fit in. Cancellation slots will be prioritised for people that have missed bookings, and we will be doing extra days to help catch up. Once Callan catches up with missed work, and we have ongoing projects all booked back in, we will then be able to reopen Callan’s diary for new work.
• To anybody already booked in with Callan from April 12th onwards, your appointment is still booked in the diary, but please get in touch as soon as possible if you need need to cancel or rearrange.
Our studio guidelines for customers can be found here.
Thank you so much for all the patience and support over this and the other lockdown closures – we are hoping we will be able to stay open for good now!
Take care everyone, and we will see you soon!
Big love from us all at Great Bear Tattoo.
