The Manitoba Body Modification Industry, including tattoo artists, cosmetic tattooers and piercers are asking for your support to reopen, at the earliest time that the province deems it safe to begin to lift restrictions to businesses. 

Of course, we want a healthy population, and relief for the medical professionals in this stressful time. We aren't asking to be immediately reopened but to be considered, based on facts, training and merit, in the first phase of reopening.

Manitoba small business are in a strangle hold right now. Commercial rents are high and restrictions on the CRB make it difficult to accept for many of our practitioners.

Body Modification Practioners have different experience than your average service provider, retail professional or server.

We have experience with, and access to, PPE to keep ourselves and our clients safe. We have been required to keep records for contact tracing since long before this current crisis. We are trained in preventing the spread of disease and have trained heightened awareness potential  of cross contamination risks.

This experience, along with limiting traffic in our studios, has allowed us to stop C*19 in its tracks on 3 noted occasions where exposures occurred within our community with no further spread, once it reached our staff. This is within a sample of 7 studios, where approximately 13700 clientelle visited during the same period of time. 

There is litte risk for the spread of C*19 within our industry, with the proposed practices and risk assessment plan, both having  been submitted to the Provincial authorities,  in place.

 Our businesses do not pose the risk that businesses with more traffic, and staff  largely untrained in the field of infection spread prevention , pose. 

Most practitioners in our industry are independent business people. We get paid only when we do the work .

We appreciate your support to help our practitioners need to get back to work, at the earliest time deemed safe by the Province of Manitoba to begin loosening restrictions to business.
