With an uncanny knack for inking realistic portraiture, the epidermal artists at Artistic Creations Tattoo etch custom images across skin canvases in vegan-friendly organic ink. Shop artists excel in intricate renditions of favorite movie stars or favorite movie explosions. Small black and white designs, such as a pair of folded hands, start around $100, and large, detailed work, such as a portrait of Elvis or a compilation of all the listings in the telephone book, starts around $250. Clients can also adorn limbs with a black and white tattoo splashed with an infusion of color starting at around $150. During the tattooing process, clients can bring along a friend or iPod to keep them company, and detailed aftercare instructions promote speedy healing. Artistic Creations Tattoo often support their community by contributing to local charities.
Whether it's unwanted hair or a tattoo that no longer suits its owner, the technicians at Laser Away Nashville Tattoo & Hair Removal turn to one powerful tool for all of their treatments: the laser. Specifically, FDA-approved lasers capable of rendering treatments with little discomfort and virtually no downtime. That feat is accomplished inside private treatment rooms, where multiple sessions with a Medlite C6 laser get rid of unwanted ink, even if the tattoo itself reads "Permanent." For stubble on legs, arms, and other areas, techs use the Cynosure Elite laser, which boasts a contact-cooling hand piece to keep skin calm in the face of follicle-fighting infrared light.
