Two sparrows fly past, carrying a swirling banner emblazoned with the words "True Love." That could be the happy ending of a fairy tale—or your next tattoo. If it's the latter, the artists at Who's Your Donny Tattoo Company can make it happen. These seasoned masters draft custom designs and portraits that express your ideals or pay tribute an old friend or the last plant you were so good at neglecting. A full-time piercer is also there to embellish earlobes, noses, and nether regions with traditional studs and microdermal gems. In between body modifications, staffers meticulously sterilize their equipment and safely discard their single-use needles.
The licensed technicians at Grande Med Spa clear hair from bodies with lasers, contour bodies with state-of-the-art treatments, and perform Botox injections and microdermabrasions. A full line of skincare products populates the shop's shelves, and jewelry waits to adorn wrists that are tired of sporting four plastic novelty watches. Private treatment rooms comfort patients with soft linens and artwork, and plush furniture and a flat-screen TV keep clients occupied in the waiting room.
Pure essential oils supplement the healing touch of certified massage therapist Nicole Pocaro. She stirs these relaxing sensory tools into massages customized from seven different modalities, from Swedish and deep-tissue to reiki, reflexology, and hot-stone massages. During reiki sessions, she aims to promote natural self-healing, personal awareness, and enhanced energy by manipulating the body's energy as well as its soft tissue.
At Allyu Massage Therapy and Spa, cool cucumber facial massages and warm herbal foot soaks are only a few of the ways to customize an already relaxing Swedish massage. Each soothing massage and body treatment is designed to thoroughly pamper guests and cater to their needs. Visitors can also achieve relaxation with other stress-melting specialities, including hot-stone massages, couples massages, and paraffin dips.
With pistachio-green walls, separate tanning rooms, and a staff certified by the National Tanning Training Institute, Jamaica Tan provides quality bronzing in a laid-back atmosphere. Besides gilding bods in souped-up tanning beds, the staff boasts artful spray tanners and a level of knowledge in the field rivaled only by the sun itself, or the sun's son, Bob.
The skin savants at Fountain of Youth level facial playing fields with noninvasive medical microdermabrasions. Sessions start with a free skin consultation, in which a licensed technician examines and analyzes outer layers. During the 30-minute procedure, a highly controlled stream of suction and fine crystals removes dead skin cells, revealing fresher, more Justin Bieber–like skin. The treatment also aims to smooth facial lines and minor scars while minimizing blemishes and uneven skin tones. By utilizing a noninvasive method of extraction, technicians diminish pain and whittle down downtime to an experience faster than the speed of neutrinos.
