What to know as a customer during the pandemic:

We are dedicated to maintaining the health & safety of our customers, employees, & community. To make the tattoo experience easier & safer for everyone, we are letting you know in advance what our new policies & procedures are to help protect everyone.



~ If you have been ill, or have been in contact with any persons with Covid-19 symptoms in the past 14 days, please contact the shop to reschedule your appointment.

~ If you are considered HIGH RISK, please contact the shop to inform your artist of your situation. We can reschedule your appointment if necessary.

~ If you have traveled via plane or cruise line in the past 14 days, please contact the shop to reschedule your appointment.

~ Absolutely do not bring anyone with you (i.e. friends, family, etc) to your appointment unless it is necessary for a disability.

~ Please only bring essential items with you to your appointment.

~ If you need to bring food with you, we ask that you keep it in your vehicle & eat it outside of the shop. (We will not have our regular candy jar out in an effort to limit the spread of any germs, so please bring something sweet to keep your blood glucose levels up!)

~ Water & other non-alcoholic beverages will be allowed, but you may only drink it in the lobby.

~ Cash will not be accepted, unless otherwise stated by your artist. Credit/debit cards are accepted. We also have options for paying by phone or Paypal.


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. In addition, some artists may be wearing eye protection, or face shields..

~ 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!


Your favorite Madison tattoo studio

At Lost Lakes Tattoo, we care about providing our customers with the best experience possible.

One of our seven talented artists will work directly with you to create a design that you’ll want to show off for a lifetime. It doesn’t matter if you have all of the details figured out or a loose idea of what you’re looking for, our experienced tattoo artists will bring your vision to life.

All tattoos at Lost Lakes Tattoo begin with a consultation. You can start the process by filling out our contact form. We will then reach out to set up a time and date to sit down with the artist of your choice. If you’re not sure who you’d like to work with, we’ll help pair you with the best artist for the job based on your idea.

Please feel free to stop in and check out the art and the atmosphere in our tattoo shop. There’s always someone around that can help you book a consult, answer a question, or pass a message on to one of our tattoo artists.
