Plans for tattoo studio in former Amble shop
Plans have been lodged to create a new tattoo studio in Amble.
A change of use application has been submitted to Northumberland County Council for the premises at 42-48 Queen Street, previously a shop.
The applicant is Peter Hall, an award-winning tattoo artist who runs Evil Needle, on Bondgate Without in Alnwick.
It is proposed that the opening hours will be 10am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 4pm on Saturday.
The shop has been vacant since the business 42 Queen Street closed at the end of last year when Ann Burke, also chairman of Amble Business Club, and Richard Wardman retired.
Richard bought Jean Furness Florist in 1989, a business Ann had worked in for eight years, and it later became The Flower Centre in 1999.
The name changed to 42 Queen Street in 2011 when the pair sold the floristry side of the business and the focus switched to cards and gifts.
