A Dubbo tattoo and beauty studio was fully booked out on June 13, after they were able to reopen from COVID-19 lockdown.
Piercing, beauty and tattoo parlour, Sharica, were forced to close about two months ago when the government put the country into strict lockdown.
Owner Patsy Clarke said they were excited to reopen but added how important it was for clients to adhere to the government's rules and regulations.
Tattoo parlours can reopen with up to 10 clients and the four square metre rule applied at all times.
Ms Clarke said it was difficult having to close the business, but welcomed the news that they could reopen.
"I don't think anyone has been through that before. It was very scary but it was very exciting when we realised we could open...," she said.
Enquiries have not stopped since it was announced they could reopen, Ms Clarke said.
Her hope is that a second wave of COVID-19 doesn't happen.
"As long as we're careful. I know some people may get upset with us because we're so careful but we have our customers, staff and families to think of," Ms Clarke said.
