Defending Our Craft

Like Never Before.

Artists from all over are looking to PACT to pave the way for a new era of political activism in tattooing. Tattoo shops remained closed for too long last year in California, and we are NOT going to let that happen again!

HOW CAN I HELP?

We are actively looking for motivated volunteers to #joinPACT and assist us with tasks for a number of important projects.

What does P.A.C.T. do?

We aim to protect the industry by focusing on issues that threaten our livelihood as tattooers. Specifically we will be addressing legal and regulatory issues associated with unlawful shutdowns, CA AB5/Dynamex, State and Federal regulations on tattoo pigments, and licensure portability for all tattooers in California.

We Are P.A.C.T.

Get to know the founders, key players, volunteers, members & supporters behind the organization.

What is P.A.C.T.?

The Professional Association of California Tattooers is a 501c non-profit founded by tattooers to empower our artists and advocate for the fair treatment of the California tattoo industry. Our membership based organization will be a network of mobilized tattoo industry professionals that successfully lobbies county regulators and state lawmakers in an effort to elevate our craft.

NEW PPP LOANS FOR TATTOO ARTISTS AND PERSONAL SERVICES

This upcoming round of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is rumored to be more accessible to sole proprietors and independent contactors in the personal services sector, and more importantly the loans may be fully forgivable. Our professions have been marginalized by health regulators and ignored by politicians throughout the COVID crisis, and it has been the case even in regards to federal funding programs as well. It’s time our industry sectors receive the respect and assistance we deserve and so badly need.

The PBFC, in partnership with Adesso Capital, is now accepting Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) pre-applications for all Beauty & Personal Service sectors.
