From Our Editors

Friendly, clean, and educational. These tend not to be the first words that come to mind when thinking about a tattoo shop, but at the Allegory, owner Pete Walker ensures clients' experiences go above and beyond their expectations. Walker not only provides clients with current portfolios of each trained tattoo artist's work but also encourages guests to watch the tattooist of choice in action. Each friendly artist is keen on collaboration to ensure the image––whether brought in, chosen from the shop's collection, or conceptually rendered by the artist––reflects the patron's personality and style. Tattoos are normally crafted in one-hour sessions and during multiple visits as well as during party rentals, which allow groups––from bachelor parties to birthday celebrations––to get inked an unlimited amount of times by the shop's tattoo artists within a three-hour time frame.

Owner and tattoo artist Pete's past pieces have included a portrait of Betty White, colorful koi fish, and realistic flowers, whereas tattoo artist Matt's portfolio is lined with tattoos of a pinup girl, robot, and abstract design of a Sudoku game. Ample parking is available, and discounts are given to those in the military.
