A tattoo firm with five staff could be taking over the first floor of a period building in Norwich Lanes.
A planning application has been submitted by Joe Wythe, who runs Factotum Body Modification studio in St John Maddermarket.
He hopes to move into space formerly occupied by the Gin Temple, a bar above the Rabbit coffee shop at number 6, Pottergate.
The application would see four tattoo stations created in the 19th century listed end terrace.
The application proposes the use of the first floor of 6 and 8 Pottergate. A planning application submitted to Norwich City Council requires the use to be changed from a drinking establishment to a tattoo studio.

A decision will be made at a planning meeting next month.
