Flipping through the Fat Rabbit Tattoo portfolio, a range of tattooing styles bursts from the page—among them: both realistic and pin-up portraits, futuristic biomech schematics and old-school designs, Chinese characters, and tribal designs from Borneo and Marquesas. When translating each work of art to customers' living canvases, the team adds custom touches to previous designs or helps clients flesh out original tattoos on paper from even the vaguest inkling of an idea. Fat Rabbit also conducts piercings—always following safe procedures—such as studs and loops. Within the shop's gallery, guests can peruse the display for tattoo ideas or simply cart home an original signed, matted, and framed work to hang on their back instead.
In the cozy fluff of luxurious pedicure chairs, clients of all ages can bypass the usual process of nail-biting to have their nails professionally trimmed and coated within the soothing spa confines of Lo-Ann Nails. Deft technicians tend to feet, melt away tension with hot stones, and soften skin textures with paraffin wax, all in addition to the typical regimen of nail shaping and polishing. Savvy clients can select from a variety of polishes, and kids can coordinate their nail color with weekly horoscopes during sessions designed specifically for youngsters.
Quick, cookie-cutter pedicures don’t exist at LoAnn’s Nails and Spa. Instead, the salon schedules rejuvenating treatments in 45-, 60-, and 90-minute intervals to ensure no detail goes overlooked. To amp up the indulgence, the professional technicians can follow nail and cuticle grooming with a variety of foot-massage techniques. Stress melts under the application of hot stones, mint masks, and Tiger Balm—an ointment designed to relieve aches caused by wearing uncomfortable shoes or playing footsie with an actual tiger. Clients can also match their fingers to their toes with a spa manicure—featuring standard or chip-resistant gel polish—or pamper their skin with a deluxe facial.
Alara Med & Day Spa's comfortable atmosphere and massage and beauty treatments de-stress bodies. The knowledgeable staff of beautifiers includes aestheticians, massage therapists, laser technicians, cosmetologists, and more. Each treatment room is draped with fresh linens and modern equipment, ready to house services such as a 60-minute aromatherapy massage, which calms and soothes with scented oils ($85), and the Epicuren signature facial, which stimulates cell metabolism to tighten the skin, improving texture and tone ($85).
As a licensed massage therapists, Lara Traynor and MaryJo Olson take the reins at Desert Sky Healing with firm, well-moisturized grips. Nestled among a bevy of soothing services sits the hydrating body wrap. Hot towels seal in pure avocado oil to treat dry, flaky, sun-damaged, or guacamole-craving skin, before a custom scalp and face massage puts tension in a sleeper hold. The exfoliation and hydration synergy treatment, which includes the hydrating body wrap, blasts arid epidermises with a moisturizing tidal wave, starting with a preliminary salt scrub, dry brushing, and full-body massage. The nourishing scrub increases the effectiveness of the hydration stage by first clearing bodies of glued-on plastic wrap and the layer of dead skin cells that repels vital minerals and compliments.
