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.
