After a five-year apprenticeship to an international award-winning tattoo artist, Lollie set off on her own to decorate bodies at Precision Body Art. Here, Lollie adds to her portfolio with self-described “girly tattoos” and scrolling lettering—some of her specialties. The former apprentice is now an educator herself, teaching tattoo seekers what to look for in a studio, what kinds of questions to ask tattoo artists, and how to conceal old “mom” tattoos from their new moms.

Led by Dr. Kris Armstrong, the med-spa staff at Face 2 Facial erases signs of acne and aging with revitalizing facials. During a chemical peel, techs paint face canvases with glycolic- or salicylic-acid serums that strip away dead skin cells and second noses and reveal smoother, brighter visages. A cleansing preps pores for the thirst-quenching lotions of the HydraFacial, which infuses the skin of the T-zone and the kisser with blasts of hydration so clients don’t have to shower with a fire hose to feel moisturized. The pampering leaves mugs soothed, refreshed, and completely clean, and it doesn’t require downtime or leave behind redness after treatment.
