We might be able to make it: Tattoo, piercing shops allowed to operate in California’s most restrictive tier – KCRA Sacramento

Posted in Tattoo Shop on Oct 22, 2020

As California continues to reopen, top health officials are allowing personal care services to operate indoors with restrictions in the most restrictive tier.According to the state, the new guidance applies to esthetic, skin care, electrology, nail services, body art professionals, tattoo parlors, piercing shops and massage therapy in a non-health care setting.Last month, health officials allowed hair salons, barbershops and nail salons to operate indoors with restrictions in the purple tier, the most restrictive of the four tiers. California is using a four-tier color system to outline its reopening plan.On Tuesday, Dr. Mark Ghaly added tattoo and piercing shops, hair removal and message businesses to the list.Those businesses reopened about three weeks ago in Sacramento County when it moved from the purple tier to the red tier, the second most restrictive.Weve been here 30 years, and this has definitely been the most trying year, said Michael Hare, owner of The Exotic Body Tattoo and Piercing in Sacramento. Its completely had to change the way that we do business.Hare said he and his team are taking every measure to keep clients, and themselves, safe. They wear full PPE, have installed air filtration systems in every room and plexiglass barriers are the new way of working with customers.This allows us to get close and show you something while still having a barrier, Hare said. It enables us to be safe and able to see things close-up.After being forced to close for 169 days due to the COVID-19 public health restrictions, Hare said he doesnt want to see the doors close again.Its been financially devastating for us, Hare said. Being closed for 169 days has definitely depleted my savings entirely.After being allowed to reopen three weeks ago when Sacramento County entered the red tier, Hare said the decision to allow personal care services to operate in the purple tier is good news. He said it could make all the difference for his shop.I think that with the new guidelines, we might be able to make it, Hare said. It definitely enables, even if were only seeing one person at a time, it enables us to stay afloat.If a county were to see spikes in COVID-19 cases and falls back into the purple tier, those businesses wouldnt have to close again.
