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.
Phoenix Cool Body founder and CEO Dr. Michael Carlton helps patients to shed inches by treating the biological, psychological, and social components of body contouring with Venus Freeze treatments. In addition to helping individuals to lead healthy lifestyles, he uses the Venus Freeze body-contouring system to reduce inches, alleviate stretch marks and cellulite, and tighten slack skin on faces and bodies. Magnetic pulses, along with radio-frequency waves harvested from discotheques, penetrate subsurface tissue as the instrument warms and massages. The combination of invisible energy heats fat cells—which encourages them to shed their contents—and promotes blood flow and collagen production to diminish wrinkles and tighten skin.
Convenience comes first at Celebrity Tanning, where a plethora of metro locations, extended hours, and a large lineup of tanning equipment ensure clients can achieve a sun-kissed glow with minimum fuss. Four tiers of UV beds offer escalating amenities that add to the comfort and efficacy of tanning sessions, incorporating extra facial tanners, aromatherapy, MP3 hookups, and inspirational posters of famous suns from other galaxies. For more immediate results, the salon’s automated Mystic Tan booth sends sweeping jets of misted bronzer over bodies to create a streak-free tan that lasts 7–10 days after one 60-second session. The staff of tanning specialists can help customers choose the right type of session for their skin or budget, answering any questions that may come up. Tan-prolonging lotions from brands such as Australian Gold and California Tan are also available to enhance the depth and duration of a tan without equipping clothes with UVA bulbs.
Skin Sense Solutions operates under the eye of Nina Butler, a licensed-and-certified aesthetician and permanent-cosmetics practitioner. Butler performs a variety of facial treatments, from exfoliating treatments powered by natural fruit extracts to age-specific sessions that target teenage problems such as excess oil or excessively obvious imprints gleaned from napping on spiral notebooks. She also administers waxing treatments as well as permanent-cosmetics applications that include free touchups after the initial appointments.
Lisa Morrow—a certified permanent-makeup clinician and certified nurse—gives clients the gift of 24-hour glamour by skillfully applying permanent makeup and lash extensions. During permanent-makeup sessions, Lisa uses a sterilized needle to apply micropigments that fill in sparse brows or outline smiles for a nonstop put-together look that benefits busy parents and professionals, people with makeup allergies, and chemotherapy patients. All sessions include a 30-minute consultation and the application of a topical anesthetic designed to increase client comfort, as well as a touchup within eight weeks of the initial treatment to ensure proper maintenance. Lisa's lash-enhancing services include 10–45 false strands per eye, which she applies painstakingly one by one to create a natural mascara look or a lush fringe that adds a dose of glamour to eyes with or without makeup. Lisa can also add colored crystal to lashes, adding multifaceted sparkle to eyes without donning kaleidoscope-lens glasses.
