Christmanjm created the topic: Feasibility Study of opening a new tattoo parlor
I'm a life-long tattoo enthusiast who started collecting ink when I was 16 (2 decades ago). I'm a career Soldier with tats from all over the US (PA, GA, CO, AK and AZ).
Currently I'm a graduate student conducting research on the feasibility of opening a tattoo parlor in rural Kansas (outside of Fort Leavenworth, near Kansas City, KS and MO). Any professional insight that you can offer or tips of the trade when looking at marketability, start up costs, Do's/Don't's etc. would be extremely helpful. Any example balance sheets would be greatly appreciated!
I'm also trying to confirm whether or not the KS state regulations are the "toughest in the nation."
