Tattoo Parlor to Leave Mark on Area?

The owner of a Wind Lake tattoo and body piercing studio wants to move her operation to 76th Street.

The Greenfield Chamber of Commerce could be getting a new neighbor unlike any other in the Edgewood Center on 76th Street.

Melissa Lenz, owner of Madd Tatter Ink, a tattoo and body piercing studio in Wind Lake, is hoping to relocate her business to a vacant office in the building, 4818 S. 76th St.

In a letter to the city that accompanied her request for a special use, Lenz said she has been in the tattoo business for five years.

The parlor, as proposed, would be open seven days a week from noon to 8 p.m. The 800-square-foot office space would be divided into a main lobby, two offices designated for tattoos, one office for body piercing and a common area.

In addition to the Chamber of Commerce office, Edgewood Center is also home to businesses such as Home Care Medical, Tobacco World, Canada Drug, Wisconsin Vision and others. Lenz’s tattoo studio would be in a lower-level office.

Greenfield has at least one other tattoo parlor, and it’s right down the road from Lenz’s proposed location. Starship Bodyworks is located at 4380 S. 76th St., next to Rogan's Shoes. There are no tattoo parlors in Greendale.

Lenz’s tattoo parlor proposal is expected to be heard by the city’s Planning Commission at its meeting at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 12, at City Hall.
