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.
Several years ago, aesthetician Carlotta Clark noticed that the best beauty products had the highest price tags. Frustrated by the fact that extreme prices marginalized many consumers, Clark opened Skinplicity LaNeese to provide affordable and effective beauty treatments. Before performing any service, Clark evaluates each client's skin and develops a personalized skincare program that may include dermaplaning, TCA peels, or facials. Then, Clark elucidates the services and expected outcomes, all while answering questions and telling knock-knock jokes. During her signature detoxifying facial, Carlotta harnesses the powers of enzymes and galvanic currents to simultaneously resurface skin and regenerate cells.
Aiming to keep their clients looking and feeling great, Tropical Tans offers a variety of services, from B-12 injections and red-light therapy to custom airbrush tanning. Upon entering the low-lit, luxuriously appointed boutique, visitors can head back to private rooms to enter stand-up, lay-down, or hamster-wheel tanning beds. Or they opt for a restorative, UV-free session in one of the red-light-therapy beds.
Set amidst a relaxing and modern 2,200-square-foot complex, The Edge Salon beautifies humans' outer layers with skillful hands and personalized services. Treat downtrodden digits to an image-boosting signature manicure (a $22 value), which fortifies nails to a layer of CND Shellac—a long-lasting polish that leaves a mirror-like finish free of formaldehyde and other harsh, nose-offending chemicals (a $20 value). Shellac dries quickly under UV light, leaving a resilient nail coating resistant to chipping even during the most demanding tambourine solos. The manicure includes an exfoliating scrub, while the signature pedicure similarly polishes stressed lower paws with an aromatic cucumber and pineapple scrub (a $40 value). Both services end with a relaxing hand and arm or foot and leg massage, which melts away tension built up from night jobs massaging an endangered cactus.
The one-hour Tranquility facial soothes skins of all dispositions with all-natural, organic ingredients. A skilled aesthetician will rejuvenate lackluster frontispieces with a skin-healing salad of herbs, fruits, and vegetables, which leaves epidermises youthfully dapper and ready for face-to-face meetings with hypercritical microscopes. The 60-minute skinsperience can be customized to treat a variety of conditions, including rosacea, oily and dry patches, and damage resulting from time spent lounging on the surface of imploding stars.

The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
Our decor is modern with a touch of a vintage flair. I use professional equipment and products, aromatherapy and soothing music to make my clients feel more relaxed and comfortable.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
The first thing I do is get to know my clients and find out what look they wish to achieve. I walk them through the service I'm about to preform so they know exactly what to expect. Then I put on their favorite music and allow then to sit back, relax, and enjoy.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
One last thing I want to add is my main goal is to strive for perfection. I am constantly expanding my knowledge on the latest trends and techniques and take extended and advanced learning courses to make sure I'm providing professional quality service to my customers. I want them to know that this isn't just my job. It's my passion, and I believe that shows through my work.
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
My first love has always been bridal makeup artistry. To be apart of such a special day is truly an honor. There's nothing more gratifying then helping clients look and feel beautiful on such an important day. Even so, eyelash artistry is my newfound love. It still gives me that gratifying feeling of knowing I gave someone's confidence boost as they leave satisfied with the result.
