Tattoo Shop May Get OK For Garden Grove’s Historic Main Street

Garden Grove officials Tuesday will consider rezoning the one block long historic Main Street to allow a tattoo art studio and gallery.

Efforts by applicant Kurtis Gibson to open Black Umbrella Art Studio have faced opposition from some business owners on Main Street, who say tattoo art doesn’t fit with the family-friendly culture of the small business district.

In May, the Main Street Commission voted 3-1 against the rezoning, while the Planning Commission voted in June to recommend its approval.
