Ann Horton, while philosophically opposed, says she supports the plans of Arsenal Tattoo owner Cliff Collard.

Because the proposed regulations call for spacing tattoo businesses a minimum one mile, there will only be one in the downtown area.
The council will take final action in two weeks on the P&Z recommendations.
Applicants, including Collard, will have to apply for a conditional use permit for any new tattoo shops.
