Actually, the parlor—aptly open since Halloween 2011—and its name pay homage to hearse-driving owner Dollie Martin’s love of zombies. Her adoration for ghouls comes second to tattooing, a mastery of which she displays with her colorful, customized designs, from Superman logos to sultry Jessica Rabbits. In addition to her ink work, Dollie is a licensed and certified body piercer who expertly readies body areas for Dead Girlz’s jewelry pieces, made from materials such as titanium and silicone.

With the latest in FDA-certified Hinkel technology, the team forages into the face-and-body follicles that harbor criminal fuzz without leaving yellow crime-scene tape behind. Treatment times vary depending on hair size and density.
Good things comes in sevens—oceans, days of the week, and the number of fingers on your right hand, to name a few.
