Hi everyone! It’s been quite an interesting couple of months, to say the least.
I hope all of you are safe and well. I feel it’s time to get back to work. So, as of June 1st Monarch Tattoo will be Back open for business. I will be operating at a limited capacity to start and there will be some procedural changes. What I ask of you is;
1) if you feel at all sick or flu-like, DO NOT enter the studio. Call or email me and I will happily reschedule you.
2) The door will be locked. If you have an appointment, please knock and I will open the door. 3) Masks are now required the entire time you’re in the studio. Please bring your own with you. I will do my best to have some available. But if not, you will not be allowed in the studio. 4) only clients with appointments will be allowed in the studio. Please come by yourself 5) Temperatures will be taken when you enter and hand washing/sanitizing will be required. 6) Please eat and drink before you enter the studio. Don’t bring a lot of accessories with you. I’m currently contacting those who had to reschedule their appointments. If you don’t hear from me in the next day or so or if you’d like to schedule an appointment, please contact me at [email protected]
Thanks!

Due to the recent coronavirus outbreak, things have changed drastically, for all of us.

The mayor of Denver has said he will let the ban on non-essential businesses expire on May 1st, 2020.

Unfortunately, due to the lack of access to personal protective equipment (PPE) and an inability for comprehensive testing, I will NOT be opening on May 1st. This initial phase of re-opening businesses (as currently set forth by Denver/Colorado government) risks placing many people at an even higher risk for contracting the disease.

I plan to wait out the month of May to closely monitor the rollout of businesses opening back up. If this goes well and a major 2nd wave of COVID infections is avoided, I will be up and running on June 1st.

When things get back up and running, medical-grade masks and medical barriers will be mandatory for BOTH artist and client. Cotton or cloth masks are not safely sufficient for two people in close-proximity for hours on end. As of now, there is not any effective PPE on the market that is available to non-medical personnel. I’m currently searching for surgical and N95-grade masks. While demand is this high, the scarcity of necessary supplies is likely to keep me out of the studio for a bit longer.

I, like most of you, can’t wait to get back to work. I’m determined to provide not only the best result for your health but for your tattoo as well.

I am also NOT willing to risk the health of my clients, my family, myself or my loved ones.

When the shop re-opens, appointments will be for ONLY the artist and client for the time being. No friends, family or guests of any kind. The artist AND the client will be required to wear the appropriate PPE while in the studio. I apologize if this is inconvenient, but I feel it is necessary to maintain a level of sterility and client/artist safety.

If you can’t possibly wait to get tattooed by me and feel you need to go elsewhere before I’m back up and running, I do understand. Just know this is a measure that I feel I have to take at this time. I would only ask that you stay aware of your surroundings and do your best to limit your exposure.

I truly apologize for the inconvenience that this decision will undoubtedly cause. I also thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience and understanding during these uncertain times. Please take care of yourselves and each other.

Well, folks....It pains me to say this. But the state is shutting us down until April 30th. Hopefully this will be enough to slow down the spread of the virus. Obviously, all appointments for the month of April are postponed. I will be in touch with each of you to reschedule once the shop is back up and running. Thanks for your patience and understanding throughout all of this. Please stay safe and look out for each other.
Patrick

Hi all, with everything that’s going on, I wanted to let you know. If you have an appointment booked, I will be here for it. Please limit the friends you bring with you. If you are at all feeling sick or flu-like, please do not come in! Let me know and I will honor your deposit for a reschedule. I understand that day cares and schools are closed but a tattoo studio isn’t the best place for children. If childcare is an issue, let me know and we can reschedule. Most importantly, please stay safe, relatively sane and let’s try to look out for each other a little bit. Thanks! 303-756-9354 or [email protected] if you need to contact me.

Hard to believe but today marks 25 years since I began tattooing full time. Wow. Lots of ups and downs. Lots of successes and failures. And I feel like I’m still learning new things daily. My deepest and sincere admiration, humility and gratitude to everyone who has given me their trust and allowed me to share in their life experience. Here’s to many more years of creativity, learning, development and growth. Cheers!
