In the wake of last week’s terrible storms that took out many residential as well as commercial dwellings, a new tragedy has surfaced. The building that housed Inner Reflections Tattoos, Rich’s Hair Salon, Glade Spring Florist and a thrift store was virtually leveled. The remains of the building must be dozed and all new construction done for this building to be safe once again. The owner is willing to do so but has met some opposition by the county. Washington County refuses to issue a building permit until it receives a guarantee that Inner Reflections Tattoo shop will no longer be a tenant. County officials claim that in the ordinances, no tattoo shops are allowed. However, it has been there for the past seven years.

What is so wrong with a tattoo shop? It is not like it’s a methadone clinic. I have been in Inner Reflections and have been a patron. It is a state certified shop. The owner, Carlton Davidson, is a licensed tattoo artist. His shop is always clean and very inviting.
