Some of the story one the situation at hadn is he got kicked out of his shop he had for 10 years because the pawn shop next door bought it. Then he found another spot and poured everything into it only to find out that the landlord crossed off the special zoning on his lease, (redacted) and now he can't have his tattoo shop there because of the special zoning. If the landlord redacted the zoning for the place one would think that he should be liable for all of the costs incurred by Chad.  Plus Chad had to sign a lease on the place which he now has to fight.  He lost his old shop and now the new shop is a no go because of the zoning.

He is checking into the possibility of getting a variance.

The new location was off 39th and Kipling, which is right across the street from a middle school.  What is odd is that they don't want a tattoo shop there but there was a bar there for years.  I am not sure if the bar is still there or not currently but it had been there for years.

Chad would need an attorney but at this point there is no money for an attorney.  Plus, the city of Wheatridge is fighting the zoining issue, and at this point there is a bunch of people protesting against the shop cause it is by a middle school. The city conveniently forgot to mention that after jumping through all the hoops that is will cost $200 just to have a hearing and of course nothing would be guaranteed if it would be able to open or not.  Chad got all of the permits and the health code approval and then the day before he was going to open the "officials" came in and notified him of the zoning issue and they did not notify him when he applied for the permits.

If anyone is a lawyer and would like to help Chad with this legal problem please let him know as he sure could use the help.  

Also if anyone would like a tattoo please contact him at Kool Kats and set up and appointment for some ink.

Thanks Carrol Mick for setting up the fundraiser that is on my page, it is devastating, shocking, a cruel reality to lose your business due to no fault of your own, the cruel greed of a building owner to just give it to someone else with only a month eviction notice, after 10 years and over $60,000 invested I had to walk away from it virtually empty handed, then only too, find a new location where the landlord said it was zoned for tattooing, and over 7,000 dollars later, to find out that it is not, and once again, I had to walk away from my business, that was all the money I had left, in the mean time dealing with that mentally, utilities have been shut off, I put everything I had into that, it is a devastating, life altering change, so everything helps at this point, I think some people would have lost their motivation or mind, maybe you slipped into some type of depression or built in the anxiety of unknowing, when you have a business for 10 years that you built from the ground up and have to walk away it is not an easy thing to live with, there is much more to this story, some of it not important, how I survived, how I mentally get through this, maybe you can understand if you own something, like a house and all of a sudden out of nowhere the bank says you have to leave in one month and you get nothing to show for it, it's kind of like that. Thanks for reading. And thanks again for the fundraising attempt to help me out, I appreciate it very much.
