A Pennsauken tattoo shop called Omkara Tattoo has proposed a opening another branch for the Parsons Building in Dickinson Square West Park 510-512 Washington Avenue , according to Dickinson Square West Civic Association.
Owner Matt Gonzalez said there are still a lot of meetings to attend before the proposal is approved, but he hopes the shop will be a part of the Philadelphia art community.
“Philadelphia has such a rich art history, and we’re all very familiar with the area,” Gonzalez said “We want to be a part of the tattoo community.”
The owners went before the Dickinson Square West Civic Association’s zoning committee last week. We’ve checked in with them to see how the presentation went, but haven’t heard back just yet. We’ll update ASAP.
