Jefferson City to allow tattoo businesses

Wednesday, January 20, 2010 | 10:40 a.m. CST

JEFFERSON CITY — Jefferson City leaders have voted to allow tattoo businesses in the city with several stipulations.

The City Council voted Tuesday to allow the businesses, but required that they operate only from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune reported that another stipulation requires the businesses to aesthetically blend in with their surroundings. The city also will tax tattoo establishments 1 percent of their gross revenue or $500, whichever is greater, and conduct twice-a-year inspections.

Tattoo businesses had been banned in Jefferson City since at least 1980.
