I am just astounded by the ignorance of Reed Berger and those opposing the opening of a new Tatoo business on Main St.
Questions and statements regarding families???
The issue has already been resolved in a Supreme Court Case
Tattooing is main stream in our society and culture. It is art, culture and family it is freedom of expression and everything that is unique to Americans.
The owners are willing to invest for the betterment of our community with a thriving business one that brings in revenue for the city, they intend to make changes to the harsh appearance of the disappearing Main Street. Much like Sunsetters Riverfront Bar & Grill, Main Street Station, and the revival of The Bank & Blues the community knows what's best for itself. The only question now is who's moving in next door? Maybe a Coffee Shop, Florist, Art Gallery or a Bakery, or an Eco Friendly Bike company like FLAUNT Electric Bicycles, or a new Media Company like www.Behinddaytona.com
To be fair as stated in the video, the council seems to be "FOR" this while the " Professional Opinion" of one man hinders progress.
Having now met with the owners and other business owners they are now galvanized in their efforts to stop what they say is an aggressive effort to depress the Main St. District by a selected few. Who they are, maybe Reed Berger knows. It has been reported that he has been slinking around town taking photos or videos of businesses. If he is really doing that, to what end we ask?
This editor is asking for the removal of Reed Berger and his "Professional Opinion" in this process his prejudice is unwanted.
We are attempting to get an interview with Mr. Berger so he has the ability to answer our questions.
In the meantime we truly hope the people in charge allow the Tatoo and Museum to open for Biketoberfest.
Biketoberfest and Bike Week are traditions going back 25 and 75 plus years are also hot topics which unfortunately the Daytona Beach News-Journal started a rumour it was off by publishing opinions.
This is untrue. Biketoberfest is on.
PS: At the time of writing this I do not have a Tatoo. Hmmm....
