A few words about coronavirus

To understand the features of the current restrictions, you should first figure out:

  •  What the coronavirus is?
  • And what is the reason for its spread?

For the first time, information about atypical pneumonia, which was later associated with COVID-19, was received by WHO.

The high contagiousness of COVID-19 allowed it to cover more than 190 countries on 5 continents in just a couple of months. The virus is transmitted by contact-household and airborne droplets. And since a vaccine against it has not yet been developed. The basis for prevention is the precautions proposed by WHO:

  • regular hand washing with soap and/or thorough treatment with an antiseptic containing at least 70% alcohol;
  • keeping a safe distance (at least 1.5 m);
    respiratory hygiene: use of disposable wipes for sneezing and coughing, minimum contact in case of cold symptoms;
  • coughing, minimum contact in case of cold symptoms;
  • compliance with the recommendations of the Ministry of Health, relevant for a particular region.
Based on these rules, recommendations have been developed for cosmetic tattooing studios and masters who provide services privately. In different countries of the Australia, Europe and America, restrictions are slightly different. But they are all aimed at the only important criterion – preserving the health of customers and employees of the beauty industry.

The European experience in mitigating quarantine

The coronavirus pandemic swept Europe much earlier than Australia. So quarantine measures in most European countries are in their final stages. This does not mean that life is back on track. To reduce the likelihood of a “second wave”, the authorities have completely changed the approach to providing services to the population. And also include in the field of cosmetic tattooing industry.

For example, salons in Germany resumed their work on May 4. Exhausted by the long wait, clients literally rushed to storm their favourite artist of cosmetic tattoo. To put themselves in order after a long quarantine. Such excitement made it possible to quickly fill out the record for several weeks in advance since it is now forbidden to accept on a first-come basis.

Beauty salons in Poland and Belgium have opened their doors on May 18. True, now they will have to strictly monitor the disinfection of the premises. Regularly measure the temperature of visitors and employees, and, as far as possible, observe the mask regime.

On the same day, the range of permitted services was expanded in Lithuania. Now residents of the country have access to not only basic procedures with minimal contact but also makeup, cosmetic tattoo, massage and even a solarium. The only condition is the total disinfection of the premises after each client.

Italy, which has almost recovered from coronavirus fever, has also reopened most salons since 18 May. When providing services, craftsmen must be in a mask. Monitor their health and follow the recommendations for antiseptic treatment of hands and work surfaces.

The requirements that are relevant in most European countries are almost identical since they are based on WHO recommendations. Moreover, they apply not only to stationary cosmetic tattooing studio but also to private masters who provide services on an individual basis.

Post-quarantine innovations in the world of Cosmetic Tattoo Industry


After a long lockdown, many girls, fearing a repetition of the scenario with various restrictions, reconsidered their views on beauty and began to give preference to procedures with a long-lasting result. Thus, interest in permanent makeup has significantly increased.

The appointment with the TOP Artist’s was filled almost instantly, and not only thanks to regular customers who had to postpone the scheduled session due to quarantine – many women decided on the procedure for the first time, so that in case of repeated quarantine they look 100%, even without being able to regularly visit a beauty salon.

The list of the most popular services in the post-quarantine season has remained practically unchanged:

  • Powdery Eyebrow. The trend is soft tones, selected in accordance with the phototype of the appearance, slight negligence and smooth lines that imitate pencil ones.
  • Neat Eyelash cosmetic tattoo. Subtle drawing emphasizes the shape and shape of the eyes, makes the eyelashes thicker, and they look – more expressive.
  • Airy Aquarelle (watercolour) on the lips. Cosmetic Tattoo in a translucent watercolour technique makes the lips more plump and seductive, and at the same time looks completely unobtrusive.

“Home mode”, during which most of the girls abandoned daily makeup, strengthened the popularity of the nude range, which, on the one hand, looks very soft and delicate, and on the other, it neatly emphasizes natural features, making the appearance more perfect without a hint of decorativeness.

A wide palette of pigments from Perma Blend allows you to choose the right shade down to the slightest undertones for any skin type. The high quality of professional formulations guarantees the richness and depth of permanent makeup, which will last at least a year and a half, or even more. Our Cosmetic Tattooing Studio use only certified pigments.

Coronavirus trends in the domestic cosmetic tattooing industry

Unfortunately, the pandemic has not spared the ossie either – in the country, the incidence has been registered since the 25 January 2020, and since on July 8 , when the criticality of the situation began to grow, a self-isolation regime was announced, which completely paralyzed the work of beauty salons and private masters.

Similar restrictions have affected most of the Austarlie space. Many permanent makeup artists in Australia had to temporarily stop the practice, but everyone understood that this measure was temporary.

However, not all representatives of the beauty industry took the restrictions seriously – some tried to work secretly, serving only regular customers or taking them home. To eliminate this possibility, Australia has introduced into the code significant fines for individuals and legal entities that violate self-isolation and thereby endanger the health of their clients.

Since late November, Melbourne has begun to loosen austerity measures, focusing on the extent of COVID-19 spread across Victoria. So, November 23 on this day, the capital’s beauty salons and hairdressing salons were opened, and the australians were allowed to move freely around the city. This means that private permanent makeup artists who serve clients at home can also return to work, but only in masks.

The work format should now be built in accordance with the recommendations of the government:

  • Before opening an institution, you should carry out a general cleaning and disinfection of the premises.
  • For masters and visitors, there will be an “inlet filter” with mandatory temperature measurement.  Employees will be suspended from work until they are fully recovered if there are respiratory symptoms,
  • The mandatory list has been expanded to include a mask, gloves, a medical gown and a cap, of which there must be at least a five-day supply.
  • Now visitors will not be offered tea or coffee during a long procedure – any meal in the salon is prohibited. The restriction also applies to masters who can only eat in a specially designated room.
  • Pre-registration in time is required. The absence of queues, accompanying and casual visitors will minimize the number of contacts, and therefore reduce the likelihood of infection.
  • Another new procedure is air disinfection using germicidal lamps. Together with regular ventilation, it will allow you to clear the room from viruses.
  • After each client, it is necessary to take a 20-minute break. During the break, wet cleaning and disinfection are carried out.
 Most of the cosmetic tattoo and permanent makeup studios have already reorganized to a new format of work, alerting clients about current changes. Yes, and private craftsmen now have to observe the current precautions. Social distancing, masking, and strict disinfection rules have now become a daily reality. That helps keep both craftsmen and their clients healthy.
