Open tattoo shops with certain restrictions such as: limit 1 customer in shop per tattoo artist; client is prescreened and temperature checked prior to entry; client washes hands and area being tattooed is draped accordingly, no family or friends in shop; both tattooist and client wear a face mask. Face shield worn by tattooist for frontal tattoos.  

Tattooists already have extensive experience and training in blood borne pathogens as well as cross contamination training. All shops go through health inspection and are checked randomly to ensure they are following guidelines set for safe and sterile operation.
Covid 19 is affecting the economy in major ways. Tattoo shops and other personal services like those provided by hairdressers and massage therapists, are owned by entrepreneurs providing for their families. To ease the economic burden in our industry, it is in our best interest to open back up with these limited restrictions. Moreover the quarantine was implemented to flatten the curve of the spread of covid 19 to ensure that hospitals were not overwhelmed all at once and to help prevent such rapid spread. The number of people infected is currently on a decline.  
Tattooist will take additional precautions to already strict cross contamination measures to ensure our industry does not contribute to the spread.   Please let us get back to our art and our work.
