O.C. says no to tattoo bus ad

By Washington Post editors

Ocean City has turned down an ad contract with a tattoo parlor, saying displaying its ads on buses would run counter to the resort's family friendly vibe, The Daily Times reports.

City Manager Dennis Dare rejected the contract with Independent Tattoo saying the town has the right to reject any ads. Dare said the mayor and town council have said they don't want bus ads that "portray or perpetuate things that aren't in the spirit of what Ocean City is as a family resort."

Independent Tattoo co-owner Tres Denk says tattoos have gone mainstream and are displayed by families of all kinds.

Ridiculous. Mom and dad probably already have tattoos.
