  1. I don’t see why the tattoo shops would close. When getting a tattoo, it’s mainly you and your artist. They act like a whole group people are going to be getting tatted at once. Im scheduled for a 6 hour tat session in January. Hopefully tattoo shops are still open when the time comes.

  2. I live in Canada and booked as soon as restrictions were lifted. My tattoo appt is tomorrow. I've waited 5 months for a Killswitch Engage tatt and i'll be dammed if covid19 gonna scare me off! lol

  3. My Cousin owns a TATTOO N PIERCING SHOP here, but he closed shop up after 29 yrs. But has the rest of his shops in Virginia where he lives at🤗❤️💓💓💙💜 My Cousin OWNS N HE IS THE OWNER of several shops down there. It's a kicking ass business. Hope u do well🥰🌻🤩🌈🌼

  4. Getting a tattoo. Think about it again. You are in a tight space, the virus may stay inside the room for a few hours. The aerosols stay in the air for a while.
