For more than 13 years, Topnotch Tattoos' team of artists has been adorning bodies with vibrant custom artwork. The tattooing trio—composed of Andrew Mullen, Steve Sims, and Nate Bjork—boasts a range of stylistic tendencies, from Steve's mastery of the iconic sailor jerry style to Nate's portraiture of Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney in their classic horror-film makeup. Resident piercing expert Oscar Martinez has made a study of all types of body modification, including surface-to-surface piercing, scarification, stretching, and permanent hand raising.

Euro Tattoo's award-winning tattoo artists have proven their skills decorating the bodies of MMA fighters, rappers, and pro hockey players. Though they're known for covering biceps and backs with audacious images of grenades or animal skulls, they can also render delicate floral designs or photo-realistic portraits of a favorite news anchor. They use disposable supplies for each session, ensuring a clean, sterile environment. Additionally, the studio's piercing specialists can decorate faces and bodies with 14-karat gold or titanium jewelry.
