TheÂ previously whiteÂ house at the northwest corner of Westheimer Rd. and Stanford St. now has an edgy new look, along with some some city permits issued to an entity calledÂ Beijing Assassin Tattoos in April. The permits mentionÂ a tattoo parlor and retail setup in the building, which was bought in 2014Â by a legal entity of theÂ Katz family (of never-closes deli fameÂ 2Â doors downÂ to the westÂ of Vinoteca Poscol).
A previous set ofÂ permits was issued to Beijing Assassin back inÂ early 2015, after whichÂ the space opened for a few months as Gods and MonstersÂ e-cigaretteÂ supply store. Then a coat of whitewash blotted out theÂ building’s pretty-new-at-the-timeÂ murals, shown in part below:
Before that, the space held Bombshell Tattoo Studio, after Leather Forever called it quits in the late aughts.Â
