Los Angeles County Reopens Body Art Friday, June 19th

Despite refusing to acknowledge the state of California issued guidelines for body art, and an approved reopening date of today, June 19th, the county seems to have changed its mind. You can download the county’s guidelines at the bottom of this post.

The county has issued a 40 page document, and while not specific for body art, outlines the county’s guidelines for opening businesses. Please be aware that these guidelines still suggest people staying at home. That is simply safer.

In terms of body art, the city of Long Beach and Los Angeles county have environmental health departments with body art programs. While our studio in Long Beach will remain completely compliant, we’re interested in seeing what enforcement will look like.
