Dillon Eaves started this petition to County of Los Angeles Public Health Department

All Body Art Facilities in Los Angeles County have been mandated to close due to COVID-19. We've lost out on almost 7 months of income now and the county still wants us to pay for a full year of licensing for our facilities and ourselves. I propose a prorated amount to help subsidize the already huge financial impact this has had on such facilities and the people that work there. Other states have already implemented such actions. Other states and even other counties in California have allowed their Body Art Facilities to reopen weeks, if not months ago. Please help your local Body Art Facility whether it's a Tattoo, Piercing, or Permanent Cosmetic facility. I have personally contacted the Los Angeles Health Department and asked about receiving a prorated licensing fee and was told they weren't able to do anything about it, but that it was "a good idea" by a county health official. So it looks like it's up to us to raise awareness and take action. We're local businesses too, and to us it feels like we aren't getting the same relief or respect from our local governing bodies. If you agree with me please find it in your heart to support this cause and sign this petition.
