A request by a Gainesville man to open a tattoo and body piercing studio on Buford Drive went before the Buford City Commission on April 1.
Corey Sullivan had requested a special use permit to open the studio in suite H at 4060 Buford Drive, a shopping center near the intersection of Buford Drive and Satellite Boulevard.
Prior to the vote, Buford Commission Vice-Chairman Chris Burge expressed his concern regarding what type of signage might be used at the business.
"We don't want these little neon lights in every window and that kind of stuff," Commission Chairman Phillip Beard added. "If I see that, I'm going to send the marshal."
Sullivan assured commissioners it was not his intent to employ any such advertising.
"We are definitely not going for that look anyway," he said.
The request, with conditions regarding signage, received unanimous approval.
