Erbal Ink Tattoos, owned and operated by Jay Erb, opened for business at a new downtown location at 32 Spring Avenue in Waukon June 15.
Erb completed his tattoo training at the Tattoo Learning Center in Rotterdam, NY in February of 2012 and has previously worked as a tattoo artist in New York, Pennsylvania, Florida and England.
A lifelong resident of Waukon, Erb is now the only licensed tattoo artist in Allamakee County. He says that opening his own business “just felt like the thing to do” and that creating art on human skin allows him to be himself. He hopes to continue tattooing for as long as he is able and to keep up with the challenges of the skin art people request.

Aveka begins installation process for "baghouse" air filtration system

A one-block portion of Allamakee Street near the Allamakee County Fairgrounds in Waukon was either closed or trimmed to limited traffic for several hours Monday morning, June 15 as installation of the “baghouse” air filtration system began at the Aveka Nutraprocessing facility, requiring two large cranes to maneuver the largest portion of the system (pictured) into position. Plant owners and area residents are hopeful that the air filtration system will mitigate the smell emitted by the plant's food processing system that has been the cause of numerous complaints throughout this past year.
