Tattoo shop gets OK to open in downtown

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — A tattoo shop will finally be allowed to open in downtown South Bend.

The South Bend Common Council cleared the way for the Urban Lily Art Store to open on West Washington Street.

Back in December, some people spoke out against the new business proposal. Opponents argued that the store would bring an unwanted element to the downtown area.

But nearby businesses said that the area needed to be refreshed with new faces to draw people to the downtown area.
