OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

During Tuesday's Ocean Springs aldermen meeting, city leaders unanimously approved a change to the city's ordinance, that would allow tattoo shops in a commercial zone in the downtown area.

That ordinance includes certain restrictions like limiting the proximity of tattoo shops to a similar business as a way to avoid clusters of tattoo shops.

It's good news to tattoo artist Matt Stebly, who has been working to bring his tattoo business to a location on Government Street.
