Help us Reopen!
All Tattooist’s and tattooing clients here’s a chance for your voice to be heard in Tallahassee. Please help!
Artist, clients and studio owners, the Florida Body Art community needs your help. We have not been given a reopening date, or classified in the phase system. Our governor has forgotten about us, and has not answered our request for a date for reopening after COVID-19 (SARs-CoV-19) pandemic. We are pleading with you, to follow this link and fill in the form for us. We need a reopen date and clarification.
Governor DeSantis has limited what the health department can do to help us reopen! When he signed the executive order on April 4th. Stating: Governor Ron DeSantis issued a stay-at-home order effective April 3, directing state residents to remain indoors and limit movement to obtaining "essential services" or conducting "essential activities." The order was later extended until 12:01 a.m. on May 4.

Governor DeSantis, I IMPLORE you to reconsider your decision and allow us to re-open sooner rather than later.
Body Art studios are safe establishments, our community is building in additional safety measures and precautions to deal with the pandemic conditions of COVID-19 (SARs-CoV-19). Our culture is built around safe sanitation measures. The Florida Health Department Body Art Program is one of the best in the country, and our minimum operational requirements and some adjustments are more than sufficient for us to return to work safely.
Please Governor DeSantis, for the sake of public health and preserving safe, healthy, and clean standards for body art: reopen our body art businesses. Allow us to work with the Florida Health Department to establish safe measures. You MUST allow us to reopen and feed our families, if you are not going to provide us with any help. Failure to re-open sooner, rather than later: is causing body artists to operate unsafely. You are driving body artists underground without guidance because we are left WITH NO OTHER OPTIONS. Our entire industry does not want to go back in time.
