Thomasville Okays Tattoo Parlors

By  | 

Much of the business at Chris Morant's music store centers around instrument repairs, but it may soon include tattoos.

Morant's quest to open a tattoo shop got off to a bumpy start after rumors swirled that he and his partner wanted to open up in Thomasville’s historic downtown. Now after going back to the drawing board, the city council has created a tattoo ordinance.

As the ink dries on the new ordinance, ink work in Morant’s tattoo shop will get underway just as soon as they complete the application process with the city.

Thomasville officials say their ordinance is modeled after tattoo laws in other cities.
