Governor Gretchen Whitmer is ordering salons to close to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus in Michigan.

The order includes nail and hair salons, spas, tanning and massage businesses, plus tattoo and body piercing shops. Really, any "non-essential personal care service" place that requires people to be within six feet of each other.

Sharp-eyed viewers of the recently-concluded Summer Olympics might have noticed that American swimmers Matt Greves and Ryan Lochte both have tattoos of the Olympic rings on their biceps.
