At Lost Lakes Tattoo we have artists who are only focusing on the direction they’re most passionate about, and that’s encouraged here. So there is a limited selection of styles to offer, and unfortunately we have to turn down a lot of good ideas. If you happen to want the same thing that an artist is excited to do, then you’re in the right spot! Just fill out a consult form on the contact page. If you aren’t sure if your idea would be something an artist would jump on, then check out each artist’s page, and from there the links to their Instagram page. That should help you get the feel of what each artist is trying to create. If what you want isn’t quite the right fit, we may politely decline the idea. We apologize ahead of time for anyone who we have to say no to. We wish we could help you all, but there are simply too many requests to help everyone.

We are currently tattooing with a locked front door. No walk-ins, appointment only. One artist to one client, unless needed for medical/disability reasons. This provides an atmosphere with less interruptions for the artist, and we may keep it like this post covid. If you’re interested in checking out the shop, call ahead of time. For any appointments, call when you arrive to be let in. 608-709-5557  We’re currently still requesting that all customers wear face masks. Thanks!

What to expect on the day of your appointment:

~ We are implementing a locked door policy. When you arrive at Lost Lakes for your appointment, give us a call from the safety of your vehicle at 608-709-5557 & we will unlock the door for you to come in. No client may wait in the waiting area.

~ If you appear to have any symptoms of Covid-19, we will ask you to leave & reschedule.

~ We will ask that you wash your hands upon arrival.

~ We ask that you stay properly distanced from anyone else in the tattoo shop. Please maintain six feet of distance from other people in the shop as much as possible. This includes other persons with appointments, & staff

~ We may take your temperature. If your temperature is 100.4 degrees or higher, we will ask you to leave & we’ll help you reschedule your appointment via email.

~ We are requiring everyone to wear a mask, including our staff. Please, let us know in advance if you do not have access to masks, or if you have a medical reason to not wear a mask.

~ Expect your artist to be wearing a mask.

~ 48 hours prior to your appointment, we will be sending you a questionnaire. It is mandatory to fill out. If you don’t feel comfortable answering the questionnaire, that is okay. We just ask that you let us know & we will reschedule your appointment to a later date.

After years of normal safety precautions, we feel that adding these extra precautions during this crisis will provide an even safer environment & benefit everyone who walks through our doors. It is a bit of extra work for everyone, but it is very important to everyone at Lost Lakes. We greatly appreciate your cooperation during this time.

If you have any concerns about any of these new rules, please don’t hesitate to reach us via email. Your deposit will be honored if we need to reschedule for any reason. We understand these are unprecedented times, & we are all doing our best to keep each other well. Please, let us know as soon as possible if you need to reschedule.

We’re looking forward to seeing you for your appointment!
