It's not the typical tattoo and piercing shop. Heavy metal music isn't blasting. The clientele are lacking the stereotypical gruffness of tattoo-parlor clientele. And the walls are lined with hundreds of designs that visitors can spend hours perusing. Nobody gets the same ol' tattoo at Dakota Ink Tattoo. Every imprint is unique as a snowflake—even tattoos of snowflakes—as the staff works with clients to create original art for others to envy.
When she was studying Indian spirituality, Trudy Pellegrino came across an art form that would become her livelihood: henna. Derived from a dried, ground plant that is mixed with water to form a paste, henna is used to paint intricate designs on the body to celebrate occasions such as weddings or religious holidays. Trudy, having a bachelor's degree in fine arts, schooled herself in the art, developing henna recipes and techniques, and fine-tuning her work until she was ready to turn pro. Today, the artist mixes her certified-organic henna with water, lemon juice, and aromatic oils. Some of the ornate swooshes and squiggles she paints date back to 8,000 BC or the advent of temporary tattoos on gum wrappers. In addition to traditional bridal henna and for-fun designs, Pellegrino can also paint trial-run tattoos for customers who want to test-drive a design before they go in for a permanent one.

The artists at Byram Ink Tattoo, Fernando and Alex, have worked together for more than a decade. Yet, that pales in comparison to their individual accomplishments. Both men have more than 25 years experience stored in their steady hands, and both have spread their artistry across three continents. They've since landed in Greenwich at Byram Ink Tattoo, a facility that hosts three private workstations and unmatched sanitation standards. Visitors can browse Byam's collection of tattoo designs—which stretches into the thousands—or bring in rough drafts drawn at home or by an unusually creative polygraph machine.
