The key to creating a consent form that is both visually appealing and effective at gathering the necessary information is by setting up or utilizing a pre-made template. You can find various templates online using Google Drive or Microsoft Word, and if you have the expertise try to make your own. If you do decide to create your own it is important to remember that the main goal is to gather the required information. A good practice is to divide the topic areas we will go over below into their own sections.
Before you get started with filling out the required sections, there are a couple details to add to the header of your form. Here in the header you will want to add your shop name and any details about the shop such as phone number, email, etc.
Now that we have a template layed out, be sure that you start the form by gathering client information, here you will need to gather the following. General identification and any details on the client, including address date of birth, often a photo ID is required as well. The age is noted of course as you don’t want to run into any legal issues with underage clients, while general identification will allow you to have a record of anyone you’ve worked on.
Although a description of the procedure is not necessary we have seen on various forms that provide a section that allows for a description of what is to be done during the procedure. This area can be used by either the artist or your client if they haven’t decided what they are getting themselves. Other than that this is just a useful description whenever you’d like to look back at these forms to see what exactly was done during their tattoo.
This section is where you will list all rules to follow when agreeing to the procedure. In this section we often see check boxes that mark any medical conditions the patient might have or if your shop has any rules or regulations the client must follow you can put those here as well. Do some research of what is required in your state for this section. Some frequent checks that we see here include medications, diagnoses, if they are currently under the influence of any drugs or alcohol, and anything along those lines. Often these are broken up to provide clarification for the customer.
It is imperative that the client you are performing the service on understands all risks that may come with the procedure. Here the client will read and understand the risks associated with getting a tattoo. You can list these as check boxes or often this is written into a paragraph that the customer will agree to. Anything that may occur due to the procedure such as, risk of infection, allergic reactions, or any skin irritation that may occur would fit nicely here. Be sure the client understands and with that they can sign their name to signify their understanding.
As a tattoo shop owner you may provide more than tattoos as a service, with that you might also be looking for additional forms for those branches of your business as well. No problem there, follow the template we just created above for any of your services. Piercings come with their own risks and follow a different procedure so be sure to list anything that can occur during those services.
If you are looking to create a deposit form that is fine too! We see a lot of these and they can be extremely helpful for your business. As with any form you create for your business it should look professional, try to follow the same styling you used for your other forms. With a deposit form you won’t need any entire page to let the customer know of your policy so keep it short with a nice paragraph with a signature and be sure to keep the form in line with your others.
If creating your own forms doesn't sound like something for you, feel free to look into other services that can digitize them for you. Here at TattooPro we turn the forms you have into a digital form that can be saved right on the customer's profile with a couple clicks of a button. Manage payments, appointments, documents, and more right from your dashboard.
As a tattoo artist, inspiration is everywhere, overtime as with any artist they fall into their niche. Of course this can be a great thing, being exceptional in a specific area certainly has its benefits for an artist.
Tattoos have been a tradition around the world for centuries, some cultures more accepting of the art than others. In recent years though, there has been evidence to support signs of growth in this beautiful industry.
