Evolved’s tattoo and piercing artists are a dedicated crew of professionals trained in advanced sterilization procedures, so you won't have to worry about them eating a big, sloppy sandwich while puncturing your skin with a sharp object. Tattoo prices ($50 and up) will vary according to the design, size, and location on the body. Piercings start at $37 (ear lobes and basic cartilage) and increase for body piercings ($57) and surface piercings ($70). The needle-averse, meanwhile, can still adorn their skin with Evolved's massive line of jewelry both tribal and shiny, as well as an assortment of shirts that range from $15–$20 (T-shirts) to $50 (bowling shirts).
As an artist, Josh Wiley's canvas is the human skin. The owner of Modified Skin Tattoos, along with a staff of guest artists, transforms epidermal layers into a living portfolio. Though the artists' styles vary, their work reflects the wants and expectations of their clients, which is carefully communicated during consultations. For fans of fantasy or gaming, they have inked vivid profiles of flaming skulls or of popular superheroes such as Batman. For those who want realistic portraits to commemorate loved ones, they have captured detailed likenesses without having to press a face into piece of tracing paper and wrap it around a bicep.
The artists also renew tattoos with cover-up work that conceals unwanted images, and they use UV ink to create tattoos that are completely invisible until they are exposed to a black light. In addition to tattoo services, Modified Skin Tattoos also adorns bodies with dangly pendants, minimalist studs, and other jewelry that can bedazzle piercings and microdermal anchors.
With 45 combined years of tattooing experience, the artists at Tattoo Lounge Elyria can help clients turn their most imaginative ideas into distinctive skin art.

Piercing specialist Danny Qualls creates openings for body jewelry without the use of constricting forceps, allowing flesh to heal more quickly. Extensive training in safety measures such as CPR, first aid, and infection control keeps all procedures as safe as crossing Sesame Street during rush hour.
Armed with airbrushes and customizable tanning formulas, Tan To You's technicians travel to Dayton-area salons and clients' own homes to spread sunless glow.

Tattoo artists Brittany and Michelle share a simple goal: to turn the fruits of their clients' imaginations into permanent body art. The pair keeps busy behind the retro façade of Eve's Ink, carefully creating indelible images in the clean, professional environment, which is devoid of your mother's judgment. Eve's skilled body artists go beyond traditional ink to outfit their clients with safe and eye-catching piercings, also offering permanent cosmetic services that can enhance natural beauty or fulfill a lifelong dream of having an extra pair of lips on your chin.
Licensed massage therapist Michael A. Jagodzinski relieves sore muscles with techniques drawn from several modalities. During Swedish-massage sessions, Michael alternates long strokes with circular, kneading, and tapping movements tailored to each client's needs. Bamboo-fusion massage feels similar to deep-tissue massage. However, instead of firm hand kneads, the therapist employs warmed bamboo stalks that glide smoothly over the body to facilitate tension release and effortless pastry making.:
