Guest Artist Guidelines and Information
Wicked Goddess is an all disposable tattoo and piercing studio 15 miles outside of Washington, DC at 2672 Avenir Place Ste M, Vienna VA 22180. We have brilliant resident artists and offer guest spots for domestic and international artists just traveling through. We make sure that the work environment is fun, productive and convenient for our guests, artists and clients. See below for details and how to book your stay.
Virginia requires First Aid, CPR and bloodborne pathogens certifications. Please include these certifications in your inquiry email. You will also be required to submit a three page form to the VA DPOR at least 30 days prior to your stay. Please note this makes last minute guests impossible.
While On Site
We provide sanitized work stations with plenty of storage to our guests. At no point in time should anything be stored on the ground. We do have an onsite autoclave and ultrasonic though we encourage our guests to use an entirely disposable set up. The sterile room does have specific rules and requirements should you need to use it. You'll be responsible for thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing your station after each tattoo as well as disinfecting any equipment or surfaces that may have been contaminated. All bio-hazard waste must be disposed of properly in each station. Our staff is happy to assist with any questions or details while you're on site for the week.
We like to make sure our guests can travel easily and light. We supply disposable items for your use in shop (feel free to ask for a comprehensive list in your inquiry). We do not supply machines, inks, etc. If you have any special requests for supplies please let our managers know and they will do their best to accommodate within reason.
