The Hinesville City Council heard from residents Tuesday, regarding a proposed change to the city’s zoning ordinance  that would make it possile for tattoo parlors to open in the city. Council members are considering amending the ordinance’s distance requirements, particularly concerning distances between tattoo studios and residences, schools, churches and businesses that sell alcohol. The city scheduled the hearing after Carter Ink Tattoos and Piercings owner Ray Carter first approached the council in October, asking for the ordinance to be changed. Carter wants to open a studio in Hinesville, but his prospective location does not meet the current code. Carter’s business is in Richmond Hill.
