Littleton gives OK to tattoo shops

Littleton has put its stamp of approval on tattoo shops.

The City Council voted 6-1 to change zoning ordinances to allow tattoo parlors and body art shops in areas zoned for community and general business uses or in the downtown area. The shops had previously been allowed only in industrial-zoned areas.

Under the new zoning, tattoo shops would have to be more than 1,000 feet from each other — meaning only one shop would be allowed downtown.
