PMU & PPE – Protecting Yourself & Your Clients

PMU & PPE – Protecting Yourself & Your Clients

By: Anne-Marie Rubino & Marie Donnarumma Jenkinson

There have been many discussions among PMU artists regarding various types of PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) needed once the green light is issued for non-essential workers to resume working. PMU techs need to be prepared in keeping themselves safe and their work space virus-free while being able to feel confident and protected.

The Covid-19 coronavirus is transmitted by droplets or secretions from a nose, mouth, and even eyes which can travel a distance of 3 feet which is why there is the need for social distancing. The virus also lives on surfaces such as metal, skin, clothing etc., in varying amounts of time from hours to up to 5 days. Here is the concern, not only does every PMU tech have close personal contact to their client’s face but consider the amount of time spent on each individual. Due to the reasons stated, all PMU techs are vulnerable even though these procedures are not deemed as “medical procedures.”

Every client walking through the door should be treated with great caution. Your client could be infected and not show signs or symptoms. Here is a link to help PMU techs understand the next steps. I hope to have more specifics as it applies to PMU services.

Please stay safe and healthy!
