A FORMER Post Office in Woolston is set to be turned into a tattoo studio.

Level Up Tattoo is planning on moving from its current base on Dam Lane to the new site on Holes Lane.

The unit, at the junction with Manchester Road, was previously used as a post office for around 30 years before closing in December last year.

An application for planning permission for the scheme has been submitted to Warrington Borough Council.

As previously reported by the Warrington, the shops on Dam Lane have been ‘plagued’ by anti-social behaviour.

And this has been cited by the business as its reason for moving.

Submission documents stated: “Since we opened in 2019 we have embedded ourselves in the community – sponsoring local rugby players, hosting fundraisers and growing a lovely client base.

“Unfortunately, the site at Dam Lane is plagued with anti-social behaviour issues.

“I myself having been the victim of verbal abuse and I do not feel comfortable continuing to trade at the site.

“The unit at Holes Lane has been closed since December, and we are looking to give it a new lease of life.

“We are excited to be able to keep Level Up Tattoo in the Woolston area and remain part of the local community.”
