Valued A-ok Tattoo clients, NM Gov. is allowing “re-opening” of tattoo shops for business June 1, 2020 as long as all new guidelines are followed for safety regarding Covid19. Our priority at Aok Tattoo has always been the safety of our clients/staff and surrounding community. We have discussed in depth the Gov. decision to allow the re-opening of tattoo shops, and have weighed our options of what we COULD do vs. what we believe we SHOULD do. Ultimately, we decided that the responsible decision for us will be to remain closed at this time.
We made the decision to cease operations on our own, ahead of the Government ordered directive , and we feel that we are in a better position to decide what is professionally safe for ourselves, our clients, and the surrounding community than any governing body.
We have always taken every possible precaution to keep ourselves and our clients safe, but at this time those same efforts will require an additional level of PPE (gloves,masks,gowns,etc), which has become increasingly difficult to obtain. While there are still many unknowns about this virus, we deal with blood borne pathogens directly, specifically in the form of droplet based micro spray. It is also an established fact that getting a tattoo temporarily weakens the immune system, and leaves an open wound, which is something we take into consideration, and we would not want to contribute to an otherwise healthy person contracting the virus due to this, or have an undesirable heal. We are concerned with the number of covid19 cases rising in our state and states from which our clients frequently travel from. We would like to see the numbers be decreasing etc.(as outlined in the federal gating criteria before opening)
We really want to be back in the shop working again, but not at the expense of your health and ours. We appreciate your understanding and support during this time. We will contact all of our clients when we have an idea of when we will re-open. If you are interested in getting some new work done, please email us and we will put you on our list to keep you informed on when we will be ready to start the tattoo process for you.

I studied fine art before learning to tattoo. I have been tattooing professionally since 1999, after undergoing a formal tattoo apprenticeship at Shades of Gray Tattoo, in Oshkosh Wisconsin. In 2000, I bought an existing shop and named it A-ok Tattoo. I offer custom tattoos, designed at no extra cost, for collectors of body art. A-ok Tattoo shop moved and has been open in Roswell NM since 2004. As well as body art, I produce sculpture and paintings - available in the shop 2 Ravens Glass Art Gallery. Our shop strives to be the cleanest of all tattoo shops worldwide, we care about your health first and, of course, amazing custom tattoos that you will never see anywhere else. Ask us for a FREE Tattoo consult to discuss your idea.
WHY CHOOSE AMY FOR BODY ART?
I have always been interested in the human form, my initial ceramic sculpture always incorporated it into compositions. I began sculpture in 1991 as a youth and have been a body artist since 1999. I've noticed that tattoo collectors cherish exhibiting a tat that is a unique statement only they own. Fine art I feel gives me an advantage when designing and tattooing for inspiration. Tattooing is an amazing mix of 3 dimensional canvas and 2 dimensional artwork. I love that the anthropomorphic aspect of my canvases brings endless opportunity to create a 2-D image viewed in a multifaceted 3D form.
My focus is composition and accentuating the individual's natural form and flow to inspire my artwork that will be animated when displayed. My gallery is the human population that is moving around on this spaceship earth. I have no control of the exposure and I love that it is unexpected when most get to view the body art, that is the hidden treasure of it. It is an honor that clients trust me with their living canvas.
