Release to Tattoo

In consideration of receiving a tattoo at Zeitgeist Tattoo,
I agree to the following:

That I have been fully informed of the inherent risks associated with getting tattooed.  I fully understand that these risks -know & unknown- can lead to injury, including but not limited to: infection, scarring, difficulty in detecting a melanoma and allergic reactions to tattoo pigment or other equipment used. Having been informed of the potential risks associated with getting a tattoo, I still wish to proceed with the tattoo application and I freely accept and expressly assume any and all risks that may arise from getting tattooed.

I am aware of these risks

To waive and release to the fullest extend permitted by law each the Artist and Zeitgeist Tattoo from all liability whatsoever for any and all claims or causes of action that I, my estate, heirs, executors, or assigns may have for personal injury or otherwise including any direct and/or consequential damages which may result or arise from the application of my tattoo whether caused by the negligence or fault of either the artist, Zeitgeist Tattoo, or otherwise.

I waive Zeitgest Tattoo o liability

That I was given full opportunity to ask any and all questions about the application of my tattoo and all of my questions have been answered to my satisfaction.

All tattoo questions have been answered

I have been given instructions on the care of my tattoo while it is healing. I understand these instructions and will follow them. I acknowledge that it is possible that the tattoo can become infected, particularly if I do not follow the instructions given to me. If any touch up work is needed for the tattoo due to my negligence, I agree that the work will be done at my own expense.

I understand the tattoo aftercare instructions provided

I am not under the influence of drugs or alcohol and I am voluntarily submitting to be tattooed without duress or coercion.

I am not intoxicated or coerced

I am aware that receiving a tattoo can compromise my immune system and I understand that I am getting tattooed during a COVID-19 pandemic, which also compromises the immune system. I do not knowingly have COVID-19, and I understand that having or contracting COVID-19 may impact my tattoo healing. Likewise, getting tattooed may impact recovery from this or other diseases.

Receiving a tattoo can impact my health

I will contact Zeitgeist Tattoo if I suspect I have, or have tested positive for COVID-19 if I have been to the shop within ten days. I understand that Zeitgeist Tattoo will contact me if any staff or clients test positive for COVID-19. I waive and release to the fullest extent of the law each of the artists and Zeitgeist Tattoo from all liability whatsoever for any exposure or complications to COVID-19.

I will follow Zeitgeist Tatoo's COVID protocols

I do not have any medical or skin conditions that may interfere with the application or healing of a tattoo such as epilepsy, diabetes, hemophilia, COVID-19, or heart condition. If I do, I accept the increased risks that may be associated with getting tattooed.

I accept any risk of getting tattooed with preexisting medical conditions

I do not take medications that can effect the outcome of the tattoo such as blood thinning medication (ex. beta blockers or aspirin) or oral acne medication such as Accutane or similar products.

I am not taking medications which can affect my tattoo

I am not the recipient of an organ or bone marrow transplant or, if I am, I have taken and completed the prescribed preventive regimen of antibiotics that are required by my doctor in advance of any invasive procedure such as tattooing.

I am medically prepared for this procedure

Variations in color and design may exist between the tattoo art and the actual tattoo when it is applied due to my body. I also understand that over time, the colors and the clarity of my tattoo will fade due to unprotected exposure to the sun and the naturally occurring dispersion of pigment under the skin.

Variations may exit between tattoo and reference artwok

A tattoo is a permanent change to my appearance and can only be removed by laser or surgical means which can be disfiguring and/or costly, and in all likelihood will not result in the restoration of my skin to its exact appearance prior to the tattoo application.

A tattoo will pemanently change my appearance

The FDA does not currently regulate tattoo ink, and the potential long term effects of certain ingredients are unknown.

Tattoo ink is not regulated by the FDA

I am aware that receiving a tattoo can compromise my immune system. I have consulted my doctor before getting tattooed if I have lupus, HIV, any hepatitis, or any other auto immune disease.

Tattooing can compromise my immune system

I do not have a history of epilepsy, seizures, fainting or narcolepsy.

I do not have epilepsy, etc.

Neither the artist nor Zeitgeist Tattoo are responsible for the meaning or spelling of text or symbol(s) that I have provided to them or have chosen to apply to my body.

I am solely responsible for my approved tattoo design

I release all rights to any photographs taken of me and the tattoo and give consent in advance to their reproductions in print or electronic form. (If you do agree to this provision, please advise and remind your artist if artist requests to take photos of the tattoo.)

Photos may be taken of me and/or my tattoo

I agree to reimburse both the artist and Zeitgeist Tattoo for any attorney fees and costs incurred in any legal action that I bring against either the artist or Zeitgeist Tattoo and in which either the artist or Zeitgeist Tattoo is the prevailing party. I agree that the courts of Colorado in Denver shall have personal jurisdiction and venue over me and shall have exclusive jurisdiction for the purpose of litigating any dispute arising out of or related to this agreement.

I will cover all court expenses should Zeitgeist be challenged in court and win.

I acknowledge that I have been given adequate opportunity to read and understand this document, that it was not presented to me last minute and I understand that I am signing a legal contract waiving certain rights to recover against the artist and Zeitgeist Tattoo.

I read and understand this waiver

If any provision, section, subsection, clause, or phrase of this release is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that portions shall be severed from this contract. The remainder of this contract will then be construed as though the unenforceable section had never been contained in this document.
