The COVID-19 pandemic started in early 2020, and it has caused massive changes within a short period of time. One of the most rememberable effects of the COVID-19 pandemic was that businesses had to come to a complete halt, forcing them to lay off employees.

The Disney Company has recently changed its policy on tattoos. Disney’s goal is to create a magical, fantasy experience for their
