Fire At Md. Tattoo Parlor Quickly Contained

TEMPLE HILLS, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a fire that broke out at a tattoo parlor in Temple Hills has been quickly extinguished.

Prince George’s County fire department spokesman Mark Brady says firefighters were called to the fire at a strip mall in the 3200-block of Brinkley Road about 5 a.m. Wednesday. He says fire caused significant damage to the tattoo parlor, Celebrity Ink, but did not spread to other stores.

Brady says the cause of the fire was overloaded extension cords.

No injuries were reported.

    No one loves Tattoo’s more then
    your local Dermatologist .
    You morons spent hundreds to tattoo yourselves,
    now save thousands for when you wake up and realize
    just how bad you look with ink etched into your face.

    Doug your comments are pointless. People of all walks of life have tattoo’s including many in the military defending your freedoms. Think of tattoo’s as a personal choice. Broaden your horizon and open your closed mind.

    mike is right. i’ve got 3 and they all represent something significant to me. my 4th tattoo will as well, since it will be a memorial tattoo for my late opa. he served in our army for 26+ years to defend our rights, including the right to have an opinion and be free to get inked. don’t knock body art and modification, some of us do it for a reason and not as a trend.
