Tattoo parlour could take over youth offending office
5:50am Wednesday 30th October 2013 in News
A former youth offending office in Kingston town centre could be turned into a tattoo parlour, writes Alessia Nava.
Tattoist Christopher Perchard, a former Kingston graduate who lives in New Malden, has applied to turn Eagle Chambers, in Eden Street, from offices into a tattoo and body piercing studio.
In his application he wrote: “Tattooing is now a High Street industry and Eagle Chambers would provide opulent private studios offering tattooing, body piercing and laser removal of the highest standard and appearance.”
He opened his first tattoo shop in Croydon three years ago and said he hoped to offer six jobs, promising to keep the appearance of the former law buildings except for an ‘elegant, traditional sign’.
Eagle Chambers, which dates back to 1879, is owned by Kingston Council and was used for youth services, including teenage pregnancy advice, substance misuse services, and youth offending.
The property has been advertised to let for £20,000 a year.
