Commission meeting.

beau projects, sat across from dozens of tattooed constituents, eager to erase the line drawn between them and the nonmarked.

And in between them, there was agenda item No. 1: Request to operate a tattoo salon and art gallery within an existing shopping center shopping center, a concentration of retail, service, and entertainment enterprises designed to serve the surrounding region. The modern shopping center differs from its antecedents and marketplaces that the shops are usually amalgamated into in Newhall, from applicants Robert Atkinson and Danielle Oberosler.

One by one, members of the crowd spoke in support. There was the man who got his first tattoo when he was 60, by Atkinson. He got his second one at 65. There was the woman whose arms had burned so badly in a car accident years ago, she opted for a sleeve of ink art created by Oberosler, instead of painful and costly reconstructive surgery reconstructive surgeryn surgery to rebuild a structure for functional or esthetic reasons. .

More than 300 signatures had been collected on a petition in support of the salon, with few in opposition. And after a lengthy discussion about whether downtown Newhall could support the proposed Tattoo Room and Gallery, the planning commissioners seemed to come to some consensus: an upscale salon such as the one Atkinson and Oberosler proposed could be a fun, quirky addition that’s just what the town needs.

Though nothing was permanent yet, the commission unanimously agreed to bring the issue back, pending an examination of additional conditions of approval and appeals from residents.

Tim Crissman, a local Realtor and developer representing Atkinson and Oberosler, said the commission showed the ability to listen to the issue from a purely business perspective, rather than drawing conclusions based on perceptions.

The city is offering a tattoo removal service to residents willing to trade community service hours and classroom instruction for the free laser treatment.

We don’t do it if it’s not prohibiting someone from employment,” said Dianna Boone, community services supervisor for the city.

In the three years since the program began, 12 to 15 people have received the free service, said Boone.

We had one participant who had a tattoo removed who said he felt stripped of his identification,” said Boone. The education is to put in positives for taking away the identity. Plus, people always feel better when they give something to get something in return.”

The classes also help the city get a return on its investment, said Boone. Though Dr. Bernard Raskin volunteers his time in removing tattoos, the city still must pay a laser leasing fee of $100 per session, said Boone. And complete removal usually requires two or three treatments.

Adding a reformed, employed resident to Santa Clarita makes the investment worth it, said Boone.

Boone gave the example of one recipient who decided to have a gang tattoo removed because he had a child and wanted to support his family. But his tattoo was keeping him from getting hired.

Raskin, who has practiced in the city for more than 20 years, is the only cosmetic surgeon in town working in the anti gang program.

I think you have to not mind sometimes having people who look like gang members walking through your waiting room,” he said. That’s why not a lot of others do it.

By in large, everybody’s pretty well behaved. They’re getting a service, and they appreciate it.”

It could take up to eight laser treatments to remove a tattoo completely, depending on the depth of the ink under the skin, Raskin said. Some colors, such as greens, are more resistant.
