Rutherfordton to include Tattoo Parlors

At its January 2 meeting, the Rutherfordton Town Council approved a change to the Town’s Unified Development Ordinance to allow tattoo and body piercing businesses in the commercial zoned district.

Some of the considerations included:

  • No Main Street storefronts or entrances
  • All procedures should be veiled from storefront windows
  • Restrict tattooing on Sunday until after 1 p.m.
  • Business premises cannot be within 100 feet of an established church or R-2 residential districts

The ordinance was approved unanimously.
