The recent action the UK Government took to put Britain into lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic has majorly impacted the way we all live, socialise and work…

Many businesses made the difficult decision to shut their doors due to public health interest, and many workers have found themselves out of work as a result. The tattoo industry is among many others that have taken a big hit during these unprecedented times. Due to the nature of the business we carry out, we were unable to operate without putting our customers at risk. The health and wellbeing of every customer has always been our main focus at Skin Illustrations and it just wouldn’t be safe for us to continue to operate without putting you at risk and that’s why we made the decision to temporarily shut our shops across Kent.

Despite the world being topsy turvy right now, Skin Illustrations Artists are keeping the creative juices flowing at this time. Learning new skills, brushing up on old ones, and pushing our creative boundaries by challenging each other to create tattoo concept designs, the theme of which changes each week. This is a great way to get out of artistic comfort zones and learn new skills as well as expand on old ones and keep the creative juices flowing so we can bring our A-game when it’s safe for us to all get back to what we love doing.

We look forward to seeing you again when we reopen our doors and it’s safe again to do so. Until then, stay safe and healthy.

The Skin Illustrations Team.
