So, in my town, there is an overload of tattoo shops,
tattoo shops are literally across the street from other tattoo shops.
A town over, where my parents live, there is two downtown, just a handful total.
Apparently, tuesday, city cancel passed a new regulation that tattoo shops are no longer allowed on the ground floor of their downtown and surrounding areas, as a way to preserve the towns 'image' for tourists & etc.
"It certainly can develop that image if you kept the door open and allowed whoever wants to show up," Clauson said. "I think there's a place for tattoo parlors. I don't know that our downtown core is the highest and best use."
And apparently an existing shop owner agrees with the idea.
Has this happened in your town before?
I've really never heard of something like this.
