In 1998, Exeter voters decided to essentially ban tattoo parlors from town.
Town officials last night discussed the issue after a tattoo establishment recently contacted the town about the possibility of opening up shop in town. That currently would not be allowed under the ban, which prohibits anyone except a licensed physician from running a tattoo shop.
Nearby, there are tattoo parlors in Portsmouth and Seabrook, among other communities.
