They've also set up a tent outside for guests to fill out paperwork.

Masks are required for the tattoo artist and the client getting tattooed or pierced.

"We do a temperature check on everybody before they're able to come into the shop and everybody has been positive about it and not [felt] invasive," said Traditional Tattoo Owner, Shad Perlich.

Spas and massage facilities are also back open.

In Santa Barbara County. these types of services cannot yet reopen after county leaders put a pause on reopening due to a surge of COVID-19 hospitalizations.
