Crystal Lake Planning and Zoning Commission gives nod to proposed tattoo parlor

CRYSTAL LAKE – The City Council will consider plans for a tattoo parlor on Carlemont Drive in May after the project got the green light this week from the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission.

The commission voted, 6-0, Wednesday to recommend approval of a special use permit for Monster Ink Tattoo & Piercing studio at 1520 Carlemont Drive, Unit D, in the Randall North Business Center.

Taylor Kuhlman of Crystal Lake requested the special use permit, which is required for tattoo parlors, to open a business with five tattoo stations and a body piercing area in a 1,200-square-foot space between Buffalo Wings & Rings and Randall North Dental Care. Some neighboring businesses had raised concerns about the plans. Supporters and opponents of the project spoke at Wednesday’s meeting, City Planner Katie Cowlin said.

Cowlin said the commission’s recommendation will go to the Crystal Lake City Council, which is set to consider the special use permit at its May 2 meeting.
