Reopening Adorn: Expectations & Adaptations by owner Desta Fury:
Many of you have asked what to expect once Adorn reopens, and here’s your first glimpse! We’re proud to share with you the protocols and precautions we’ve implemented to reopen Adorn as safely as possible for our clients and coworkers. Check our social media for updates as they develop, and they’re developing fast! Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Reopening Updates as of 5/28/2020:
Adorn East & Adorn Uptown remain closed until county regulations allow us to reopen, but we have very exciting news about Adorn West: We’re thrilled to announce that we’re fine-tuning the final details for our Beaverton studio to reopen the first week of June! Tattoo services will begin first, piercing services will closely follow once all preparations are complete. Find additional information below about how to schedule your tattoo appointment in advance and how to get on our “#AdornMeASAP” waitlist for piercing services.
Until you can visit us again in person, we’ve set up the following resources so we can assist our clients safely from afar:
AdornSafely@gmail.com Help Hotline:
Email us at AdornSafely@gmail.com for piercing advice, jewelry questions, aftercare troubleshooting, tattoo consults and more. A lot of pre-service preparation can be completed in advance via e-mail. Our staff will get back to you as soon as they can with the answers you need.
Waiting List for Piercing Services:
Want to be one of the first clients we pierce or service once we reopen? Email AdornSafely@gmail.com with an email titled “#AdornMeASAP” and let us know in the subject what you’d like to get done. We’ll be coordinating our first appointments with those who contact us in the order that their email requests are received.
Schedule Tattoo Appointments by Email:
To reduce exposure as much as possible, we’re replacing in-person tattoo consultations with one-on-one email consults directly with your artist. This gives you and your artist the opportunity to discuss artwork, collect references and schedule your appointment in advance all prior to physically entering the studio. If you need help finding the right artist for you, email us at AdornSafely@gmail.com and we’ll point you in the right direction. If you know who you’d like to work with, you can contact them directly below:
Video Consultations with a Piercer:
A visual element can be greatly helpful when it comes to explaining how jewelry works or assessing the condition of your piercing. If emails and photos aren’t enough, we can coordinate a video chat between you and one of our professional piercers to assist your situation further. Email us at AdornSafely@gmail.com to see if a video chat is right for you.
Restock Piercing Aftercare from Home:
Running out of your Neilmed Piercing Aftercare Spray? Have no fear, aftercare shipments are here! Restock your aftercare on our online store.
Shop Jewelry Online & via Email:
Need a little retail therapy? We get it. Browse through our most popular designs on our online store and have your favorites shipped straight to your door. Looking for something you can’t find? Don’t worry, all the BVLA gold you know and love from Adorn is still available for purchase and shipping. Email us at AdornSafely@gmail.com and we’ll get you everything your heart desires.
Virtual Jewelry Consults & Ear Curations:
If you’ve ever been to Adorn, you know how huge our jewelry selection is and how long it can take to find the perfect piece. As an additional effort to reduce in-person exposure as much as possible, we’re hoping to help our clients narrow down if not decide their jewelry selection in advance by consulting with one of our jewelry specialists via email. To begin your jewelry consultation, email us at AdornSafely@gmail.com with what you have in mind and we’ll discuss the best jewelry options for your piercing, personality, anatomy & aesthetics.
Informative Safety Videos:
Knowledge is power, and we want to keep our clients, coworkers and community as safe as possible during these times. To do so, we’ll be making informative videos on everything from proper mask usage, to self-care during quarantine, to customized aftercare tutorials and more! To start, check out this handy-dandy video by our piecer Luke Horton about how to protect yourself and others while wearing a mask:
