Actions during the May 26 Kitty Hawk Planning Board meeting focused on two tattoo studio related requests.

Using the same language that was approved this past October for other areas of town, an application to add tattoo studios as a special use to the list of allowable activities in the Beach Commercial district passed on a 4-1 vote.

Among the conditions that must be in place for a tattoo studio are Health Department approval, operation hours only between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m, and a buffer zone between the studio and any church, school, library, public park or other tattoo studio.

Following that approval, also on a 4-1 vote, a special use permit was approved to establish a tattoo studio in an existing commercial structure at 3608 North Croatan Highway.

Both Planning Board recommendations will go to the June Kitty Hawk Town Council meeting for a public hearing to be scheduled, most likely at the July meeting.
