Babak Tabatabai invested $30,000 in the tattoo studio and art gallery that he won't be be allowed to open. Shortly after signing the lease, he was informed by the Historic Broad Business Association that the district was not zoned to allow tattoo shops. Babak is an influential artist in the Memphis community - whose portfolio over the last 13 years includes work on Memphis Grizzlies small forward Rudy Gay and former Memphis police director Larry Godwin.
