Grantham tattoo shop undergoes refurbishment during lockdown
A tattoo shop in Grantham has undergone a complete refurbishment during lockdown.
Darren Paddison, of The Tattoo Shop, on Commericial Road, Grantham, has spent the last month giving the parlour a new look ahead of its opening tomorrow (Friday).
He said: "We've got brand new flooring and lots of new artwork. I felt like I needed to come back to something fresh and new."
Customers have been showing their support for the business through lockdown.
Darren added: "Our customers have been really patient. I've actually received a few commissions for dog drawings as many people wanted to show their support and help us keep going."
Safety measures have also been introduced in line with government guidelines.
Darren added: "We've got it all from visors, masks and gloves. We have been closely following guidance from the Tattoo Practice Industry (TPI) and will be providing each customer with a fresh mask. We will also be sticking with the two metre social distancing rule instead of one metre.
"I was in a bit of a panic when it was announced that we could reopen from Monday as it didn't leave us much notice to get everything ready but now that everything is in place we are just really excited to open again."
