CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A Chesterfield County business man called it quits instead of fighting to open a tattoo parlor.

Last night at a public hearing, Eric Waite told Chesterfield planning commissioners he has exhausted his life-savings, so he can't move forward with plans to open a tattoo parlor inside a Chester shopping center.

Planning commissioners approved the plans in October, but supervisors wanted more community input -- delaying Waite's grand opening by a few months.
