Nicole Vawter, the owner of the Derma Dome Tattoo Parlor says that the noise from the church band is so loud, it knocks things off the wall.
"Basic problem is, a lot of the noise they have their equipment set right against my wall and they play it loud," she said.
Cindy Guajardo of Calles de Oro Christian Church says the noise is just part of their services.
"They've been complaining about the noise that we've been having. What we do is just worshipping the lord," she said.
What? Consideration for neighbors isn’t necessary when you are worshipping? Isn’t that like saying, “Sorry, but that noise ordinance doesn’t apply to us ‘cause we’re singing to Jesus. We have a spiritual loophole!”
But the irritation has gone both ways. The Church goers say they have been intimidated by the tattoo parlor owners. "Our kids are scared of him. We are scared of him. We can't be comfortable while church is going on," said Guajard.
What? One inked individual is intimidating the whole church? How about some creative reconciliation?
The church could invite the tattoo parlor manager to become the new worship team drummer, and the youth in the church could all get the Christian tattoos that we know they all want.
If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. – Romans 12:18
