Keenan Lee made his mark four years ago when he opened a Christian-based tattoo shop near Stones River Mall.

After much success, Prophetic Ink is adding staff and moving to a larger location, confirmed Lee, who is more commonly known as K-Lee.

 “We’ve just outgrown the building,” he said of the shopping strip suite behind Coconut Bay Café. “It is 990 square feet, and we have four artists and two rooms there, and we just don’t have any room to grow.”

Lee selected a 1,400 square-foot space behind O’Charley’s on Old Fort Parkway and plans to open in the new location in March. He’s keeping the Christian ethics, but opting for an “upscale, more antique-style tattoo shop feel.”

Prophetic Ink has also added Dan Jones to its staff. The former High Energy Tattoo owner gave Lee his first tattoo.

“Now he’s coming out of retirement to come work for me,” Lee said.
