Tattoo Parlours

If hairdressers and beauticians are allowed to open then so should tattoo parlours

Why the contribution is important

Employment. Many tattoo artists contribute large amounts of tax already. They are self employed and out of these three groups have always practised high hygiene standards with masks and gloves and skin preparation. Customers would also need to wear masks and gloves unless the hand is being tattoed. Most tattoo artists would be able to function with mask and proper face shield-just like ICU staff who are dealing with desperately ill patients. Tattoers can easily conform with screening measures. Remember these people are self-employed and have no other source of income. They want to make these measures work and they will.

    I believe this is unnecessary risk at this stage and that the government should be doing more to financially support tattoo artists and parlours at this time instead.

    Not only Tattoo shops but Body Piercing shops as well, I agree by the nature of the business this profession's work to a very standard of hygiene, and with the correct PPE, I suggest visor, mask, disposable apron and surgical gloves there is no reason these premises could not get opened in the early phases. I would also suggest the local environmental department should be monitoring them. The Piercing and Tattoo professions have far more control in their premises than garden centres in fact most retail environments where customers are picking up products to look at then replacing them on the shelves before moving on
