La Salle approves new tattoo and body piercing parlor zoning

Posted by wlpo on June 14, 2010

If you want to open a tattoo parlor, La Salle won’t be your first option, unless you want to set up shop in an area zoned light or heavy industrial.

The city council Monday night approved zoning changes that place tight restriction on where tattoo and body piercing shops can open.  It’s the city’s way of making sure they aren’t popping up in high-traffic areas.

The two parlors already open downtown are grandfathered in.  They can be sold to another owner and kept open as tattoo shops providing no changes are made to the building.  The same rules apply to taverns in neighborhoods.
