Further into the space, hanging plants are situated at individual cutting stations, where owner Peggie and her skilled stylists have been transforming the tresses of downtown Westwood for more than 20 years with their 25th Anniversary coming up on July 27, 2014. Clients can solicit Patti, Jamie, or Tracy for elegant Matrix highlights or defrizz unruly hair with Dawn, who's certified in keratin straightening treatments.

Tattoo artist Mario Barth has a long way since his difficult beginnings. Mario grew up in Austria at a time when tattooing wasn't just taboo, it was completely illegal. Despite numerous obstacles, he pursued his passion for the art form. His hard work paid off; he's since become a world-renowned artist and winner of more than 200 international awards. In addition to these accolades, Mario works with celebrities such as Lenny Kravitz and Sylvester Stallone. So, founding Starlight Tattoo might seem like a footnote in his storied history, but he still hand selects every artist the employs.?

The tattoo artists and body piercers at Addiction NYC help clients express their uniqueness by adorning them with custom tattoo work and body piercings.

If there’s one thing the Addiction team prizes above individuality, it’s safety. During piercings, they eschew reusable guns for disposable, single-use needles.
