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.

After being diagnosed with skin cancer at a young age, Polished Skin Spa & Wellness Center's owner Yvonne Hubrich knew it was time to make a change. She altered her skincare regime, gave up her favorite tanning bed, and took care of her skin until it was healthy again. Along the way, Yvonne discovered a passion for helping others find beauty in themselves, which led her to open Polished Skin Spa & Wellness Center. Along with hairstyling and massage, Yvonne and her staff take care to educate each client about beauty techniques. After performing chemical peels, dermaplaning, and other skincare therapies, aestheticians help each person develop a personalized skincare regimen.

Before leaving, clients can augment their services by sitting for tarot-card readings, reiki treatments, or hair coloring.

Art Versatile

Skin is Anisha Kanakia Sanghani’s canvas, and her intricate masterpieces—henna designs, painted faces, and nail art—enjoy fleeting but beautiful lives on their wearers. She has been embellishing skin with henna—a paste made of all-natural ingredients such as lemon, eucalyptus, and coffee—for more than two decades, drawing from both traditional and contemporary influences to conjure her designs. In those years, she has decorated skinscapes at a bevy of public events and taught others to delineate whorls and loops at the Fitton Center for Creative Arts. The portable nature of her craft lets her practice at festivals, enliven girls’ nights, and visit study groups to etch palms with decoratively concealed chemistry equations before an exam. Although Anisha concentrates on temporary, cheek- and palm-sized work, not all of her handiwork has disappeared from this earth; she also applies her talents to murals, portraiture, and graphic design.
