Tattoos emblazon emotions upon our flesh, etching out love for maternal entities or continued sadness over Flipper's unreliability as a pen pal. Wear your heart on your sleeve or other body area with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one hour of tattoo work at Funhouse Tattoo (a $140 value).
Fresh from a role as consultants for the construction of the tattoo parlor in The Hangover 2, Funhouse Tattoo’s flesh inscribers provide custom tattoo services in a bevy of styles. Words, scenes, and faux muscle definition are customized to customer specifications, with tattoo artists incorporating a choice of styles, including old school, graffiti, portraits, realism, and Connect the Dots. One hour of skin decoration can result in a small token of remembrance or be the initial step of a larger pigmentation project. Also known for crafting tattoos for the San Diego Chargers, the parlor’s artists work in a sterile environment to ensure that guests leave with artwork as safely illustrated as a Garfield strip drawn inside an underground bunker.
Funhouse Tattoo San Diego
With years of expertise stowed away in their steady hands, the inksmiths at Funhouse Tattoo San Diego transform swaths of epidermis into personalized pieces of art. Their prowess has gained plenty of outside attention, leading them to be called to the set of The Hangover 2 as prop consultants. The Funhouse facility, resting among the palm-tree-traced streets of Pacific Beach, is a frequent destination for San Diego Chargers players, especially those who need to have the plays permanently doodled onto their arms.
Inside the shop, inked images are available in an assortment of styles. At one station, head artist Leo Cadenazzi sketches the bold lines of Japanese creatures, and at another station, founder Seth Reynolds wraps limbs in symbolic Polynesian portraits. Cadenazzi and Reynolds lead a staff that also specializes in graffiti, realism, and traditional images, such as the Harley-Davidson symbol, an eagle, or Sean Connery getting a tattoo of Sean Connery.
