Joe Riley started this petition to Governor Steve Sisolak and

-Allow professional, licensed Tattoo Studios to reopen in Phase 2.
Why is this important?
Licensed and established Body Art Businesses (Tattoo Studios, Piercing Studios etc) WILL NOT present any greater risk of COVID -19 transmission than a Salon, Barbershop or other Personal Care Services. Although we adhere to strict licensing measures, we seem to have been omitted from phase 1 likely due to lack of understanding of our industry. As per our licensing requirements, we are trained in the prevention of disease transmission and are confident in our ability to operate safely. Nevada Tattoo Studios were forced to cease operations when closures were mandated on 3/17/2020.
Currently, under the direction of our governor, there is no clear cut answer on when we can reopen. We should have been able to open along side similar buinesses when phase 1  allowed it. Our standards of care and sanitation are equal to or greater than those of most salons, barbers, nail shops, as well as retail, manufacturing, restaurants and other businesses already open, and allowed to reopen in phase 1. We just want to be seen and treated as equals and get back to work. Ours, along with other small businesses are suffering. Reopening in Phase 2 will gives us a chance to hopefully recover some of our losses from this long closure and move forward. We have families to care for and needs to be met just like everyone else. We make an honest living, contribute to our local economy and give to our communities, just like other hardworking business owners, contractors and employees. It would be a great disservice to segregate us from other small businesses like ours in plans for slowly reopening Nevada. Thank you for your consideration and support.
