ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- A new tattoo shop known as "6 Finger Tattoo" opened up in Rockford at the end of November.
Sarah Stewart owns the tattoo shop, which became the first woman-owner tattoo parlor in Rockford.
Stewart worked through Rockford's Business First Program, which helps business owners redevelop an existing property or open a business at another existing property.
She previously worked at Delicious Ink for seven years but she wanted to challenge herself and open up her own shop. Stewart says shes is happy with the outpour of support shes received after being open for a week and a half.
6 Finger Tattoo is located at 136 N. 1st Avenue. It is open from noon to 8 p.m. on Tuesday through Saturday.
