Jimmy Buffet Saves the Day

Key West, Florida has one more tattoo shop… thanks to Jimmy Buffet’s sweet island tunes.

When lawmakers rejected a Virginia man’s proposal for a tattoo parlor, he took it to a federal appeals court, which overturned the previous order.

The city had argued more ink shops would hurt tourism. But a judge pointed to the lyrics of ‘Margaritaville,’ citing that even though the singer had not planned to get body art, he later recalled it as a “a real beauty,” and did not seem to harbor long-term regrets.
