The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control recently barred the tattoo parlor Ophidian Tattoo from opening a location at the Arcade mall in Columbia, South Carolina, reports The Post and Courier. The DHEC ruled that Ophidian operating in its chosen location would violate state law because it would be within 1,000 feet of a church’s entrance. Ophidian’s owners, however, say that the site is outside of the 1,000-foot range of the church’s main entrance. The parlor, which is represented by a lawyer from Nexsen Pruet, has 30 days from the DHEC’s ruling to file an appeal if it so chooses.
