There's a new tattoo shop opening where Porky's used to be. I thought tattoo shops were banned in Cajah's Mtn.

Unless something has changed cajahs mtn don't allow tattoo parlors. The guy opening it up has ads on Craigslist wanting tattoo artists and piercers. Maybe somebody needs to ask the mayor if he knows about this.

you can't legally ban a tattoo parlor since it is recognized as a legal/legitimate business by the state of NC.

Now can they regulate where they locate? Sure, but they can't outright ban them.

If Pricillas wanted to open a store in CM, the town would have to allow it.

Jesus doesn't trump someones right to operate a business in a specified location.

Who even said anything about Jesus before you did? Nobody! I guess you don't remember
the tattoo shop that was across from Lightning Video back in the 90's eh? Well I do. The owner ran out because he was doing jacked up tattoos. It was questioned if he even cleaned his equipment like he was supposed to. I had a friend that got a tat there and he had to go to the doctor with infection several times because of the one and only tattoo he got there. He ended up with an arm knotted up and scarred courtesy of that dude.

Lightening Video is a good distance from where this parlor is. If u don't like tattoos that's ur problem. Others like them and are entitled to do what they want with their own body. The guy that has the parlor does great work. Dont like it don't go there very simple but that man deserves to be allowed to earn a living to feed his family doing what he loves just like everyone else!
say what?

I agree. It's not like they will block the road and force people in. It's a personal choice if a person visits there or not. Cajahs Mtn should be happy someone is renting one of the many vacant buildings in that area. Despite the image people have of tattoo shops, they are actually a very regulated industry in NC now.

Did you bother to read what I wrote or just start mouthing off?
I said that there was a tattoo parlor right across from Lightning Video back in the NINETIES that jacked my friend's arm up. Did you notice I had a friend with tattoos, or just ignore that?
I personally could care or give a crap less what any of you do to your own bodies. If you're stupid enough to cover yourself with ink, that's on you and the rest of your kine. When it's to the point that kidneys and livers start failing because of the inability to pull off the toxins in the ink, that's on you all too. Hope you can find a kidney or a sliver of liver somewhere, because I am rather attached to mine.

How about reading next time?

Why would you want to run a business out before you even see what they are going to do? I personally know the man who is opening the shop and he is a very nice guy. He is a christian family man. I just think he should be given a fair chance before him and his business are judged. Everyone should stop by and meet him or at least give him a chance. Its not like a porn shop is being opened.

I personally know the man opening this shop and his family. Despite what people think about tattoo shops this is his way of providing for his family why not give him a chance. He is a very good artist something Lenoir needs. And I can promise its not going to be one of those so called trashy shops. He is a Christian man just trying to make a living. People stop hating they aint standing there in the street forcing you to stop but some of us will be in that shop guaranteed!!!! Bring money to the Cajah Mtn. Community.

Well said. It's as if people wish for businesses to fail even when it absolutely has nothing to do with them, They had rather see empty buildings I guess. The tattoo business is now well monitored and a continuous growing trend national. Several tv shows relate to the industry, the number of people getting tattoos is the highest ever and come from all walks of life and other than a few ultra right regions in the country tattoos are very sociably excepted. I think it's great that people choosing to have body art can now get it done locally thus supporting our neighborhood businesses. I personally do not have tattoos but why would I care if someone else did. It's their choice not any one else's. I don't mind the guy opening there, it's not like we are forced to visit. I hope he does well.

I personally have tattoos from the owner of this shop and I have known his wife for all of my adult life. He and his wife have the most well behaved children and the whole family is a joy to be around. Their business would be an asset to any community.
none of your business

You and your kind huh? You self righteous redneck. Who are you to judge anyone, God said he who has no sin cast the first stone. But since we are juding. I got a question. How many times have you had unprotected sex, drank alcohol, smoked, or stood by a bon fire like you rednecks like to do. Those things are 10 times as likely to make you sick or kill you than a tattoo. Just because you had one ignorant friend that got a tattoo in a slum. Doesn't mean all tattoo artist are butchers. You don't even know who you are talking about do your research before you go "flapping off at the jaw". On second thought don't do the research you might hurt yourself. Probably have enough trouble operating the TV remote. The next time you feel like getting judgemental find Jerry Springer and watch some of your "kine" share their pathetic lives with the world. Leave the hard stuff to my "kind" like thinking.
none of your buisness

I think it's wonderful that someone opened a business in a building that has sat vacant for awhile now. Out of curiosity, I stopped by and the owner happened to be there. I think the owner Thomas English and his business will be a great asset to our community. Don't judge before you get to know someone!

Okay- I don't understand why people get on this stupid site in the first place? Do you have absolutely nothing better to do with your life's than you judge others & what they do for a living? I live right here in the baton community and I'm THRILLED to have this tattoo shop !!! And honestly all you are doing is being haters -
And haters are motivators so thank you ((:
I have 4 tattoos and def will be getting more- just because one tattoo shop back in the "90's" done bad doesn't mean this one will, grow the hell up stop judging and get a life!
