UPDATE From the Owner:
Unfortunately as of April 17th, no new developments on when State COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted. (see below)**
Since I only make money when I am actually tattooing…I have opened an Etsy shop to sell my mini-prints, artwork, and other wares to make ends meet for food, rents, utilities, and other expenses. I appreciate your support.
**As of Tuesday, March 24th, all Oregon tattoo shops, including Above the Pearl Tattoo (along with many other businesses) were *temporarily* closed by Executive order by the State of Oregon, https://govstatus.egov.com/or-covid-19 , Executive Order 20-10: until June 15th and/or Executive Order 20-12, Executive Order 20-15, ‘until further notice’, in order to comply with current COVID-19 mandates regarding social-distancing, stay-at-home mandates, and PPE conservation (personal protective equipment ie: gloves, masks, etc)
Right now, scheduling and rescheduling is on hold, temporarily, until I can get a definitive answer when I can legally reopen.
I will be contacting everyone regarding rescheduling all appointments, as soon as I know when I can legally re-open. I am monitoring the situation closely. I will let you know as soon as I know more.
In order to help our medical folks on the front-line, many medical supplies have been donated to the healthcare system. All tattoo and related equipment have been removed from the studio, for the time being.
I appreciate your patience, understanding, and support in these strange and unprecedented times.
I will be keeping in contact to let you know the status, as I know more, and know that I have forgotten about you! We’ll get through this!
We are all in the same sea of COVID-19, just not all in the same boat.
Stay safe, stay health, stay tuned.
