A tattoo parlor is not a bad place of business. They pay their taxes just like any other business so they are not taking money away from the city. They are simply just supplying a service to the citizens of the city that want to be tattooed. According to the owner of Dr. Jack's Ink Emporium Tattoos business has been very well and actually picked up during the holidays. So there is obviously a need for a tattoo parlor in that particular area.
People need to stop judging the tattoo community and thinking they are bad influences and up to know good. Some very well known respected people have tattoos. All it is is a little ink on your skin. That doesn't make you a horrible person. Just because someone has a tattoo or two doesn't mean they are going to lie, cheat, steal and murder. Wake up and smell the coffee, it is the year 2009. Tattoos are not as taboo as they once were!
