I specifically acknowledge that I have been advised of the facts and matters set forth below and I agree as follows:

    • If I have any condition that might affect the healing of this tattoo, I will advise my tattooer prior to the start of the tattoo.
    • I have not traveled outside of Canada within the past four weeks. I have no symptoms of COVID-19, and have not come in to contact with anyone infected by the virus to the best of my knowledge.

    • I will advise my tattooer prior to the start of the tattoo.

    • I accept that variations in color and design may exist between the tattoo as selected by me and as ultimately applied to my body at my artist’s discretion. I understand that if my skin tone is dark, the colors may not appear as bright as they do on light skin, and that colors may appear muted once the tattoo is healed.
    • I understand that if I have any skin treatments, laser hair removal, plastic surgery or any other skin altering procedures, it may result in adverse changes in my tattoo.
    • I acknowledge that this tattoo will result in a permanent change to my physical appearance and do not hold Art Sharks Tattoo Co. or any of its employees or representatives liable for changing or removal of my tattoo once it has been obtained. To my knowledge, I do not have a physical, mental or medical impairment or disability which may affect my well being as a direct or indirect result of my decision to have a tattoo.
