Celebrity Ink might be closed right now, but it won’t be forever! There’s plenty you can do to keep busy and make the most of your time at home - it all starts with avoiding the news and getting creative.

Our pick of the top 10 things to do when you’re stuck in isolation:


1 | Browse for your next tattoo

You might not be able to get inked right now, but why not create an inspiration board for when you can? Hit up our Insta and Facebook pages for the latest designs.

2| Have your hair styled

Tattoo salons may be closed but hairdressers are still open! Support your local by getting your hair cut and dyed, or try some new styles at home with inspiration from YouTube. Who’s got the clippers ready?

3| Shop online for a new wardrobe

If you’re missing your Celebrity Ink visits, you can still support us during this time by purchasing some of our apparel and merchandise online - we’ll get them to your door in no time.


4| Organise a movie marathon with the family

Isolation is the perfect time to embrace downtime with the family. Why not put together a movie marathon of the classics, or pick a movie star and binge watch their best flicks, complete with popcorn and pyjamas?

5| Embrace your artistic side

Get crafty and work on projects you’ve been thinking about for a while but haven’t got around to doing. There are hundreds of online courses to help you learn a new artistic skill such as watercolour painting or macramé. Or why not design your next tattoo?

6| Get a green thumb

Head into your backyard for some much needed Vitamin D. Why not plant a succulent garden? Practical in small pots, succulents don’t need much TLC, meaning you don’t have to remember to water them daily once you’re back out in the world!

7| Pick up a good book

Fancy curling up with a glass of wine and a good book? These body art and tattooing reads will have you longing for your next tatt.

8| Cook for your neighbours

Chances are your neighbours are feeling a little lonely these days. Why not cook them a meal or bake them something sweet and leave it on their doorstep? They might even repay the favour!

9| Plan your next holiday

We won’t be stuck in isolation forever, and even if we don’t know when our next holiday will be, why not plan your perfect destination so you’re ready to jump on the plane when the time comes. You can kill two birds with one stone and travel to Phuket, Chiang Mai or Bali and pop into Celebrity Ink for your next tattoo while you’re on holidays.


10| Get on top of your DIY

Have you been wanting to carry out some renovations but haven’t had the time? Pull out that paintbrush and make your time at home productive. When we’re all back at work and people ask how you spent your time in isolation, give them something to talk about.

Survive isolation by ticking these 10 things off your list and you’ll never get bored while stuck inside.
