In a clean, open space, Pierce Ink offers beauteous body modifications for customers interested in embellishing muscle coats and commemorating meaningful life events. Specializing in custom tattoos, Piece Ink's talented artists will bring any design to life by creating bold and unnerving, or refined and detailed tats. Tattooing costs between $60 and $125 per hour. Pierce's fully licensed, experienced staffers are also certified in first aid, CPR, disease prevention, and bloodborne pathogens, ensuring a safe, hygienic process. On the pierced side of the coin, visitors can garnish a navel ($60), nose ($50), or tongue ($65) with basic jewelry, or gracefully bedazzle bodily surfaces with anchor piercings ($95). Pierce Ink carries high-quality titanium and surgical steel jewelry, as well as Pyrex pieces to significantly reduce the chance of your body rejecting its new trimmings like it so rudely did when it was offered a slice of rhubarb pie.
Since 1984, Bulldog Lifestyles' professional artists have adorned bodies with tattoos and piercings. Drawing from expertise in traditional, new-school, tribal, portraits, and realistic styles, tattoo artists permanently paint epidermal canvases with a customer's chosen image or favorite Bob Ross quote. Surface piercings speckle across cheeks and chest bones, whereas studs adorn noses, ears, and tongues.
Rejuve Med Spa isn't just endorsed by its own team—an impressively eclectic array of experts, including two surgeons and several licensed aestheticians and certified laser technicians. The spa is also endorsed by some of the most famously beautiful women in Texas: the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. While the spa's treatments can't turn every client into a pro dancer, its experts can prep any physique for the spotlight with services such as FDA-approved Fraxel skin resurfacing—a treatment that minimizes wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage on skin of all types. Other treatments range from microdermabrasion and laser hair removal to laser lipo and awake breast augmentation.
The bamboo furniture and tribal drums inside Earthbound Tattoo Studio telegraph the studio’s specialty in traditional and modern Polynesian-flavored tattoos. This aesthetic may come from artist Noel's travels through Hawaii and New Zealand—or maybe the team just has a head for the geometric curlicues and bold black lines that represent that style. Either way, their creative minds swirl not only with island flowers, bands, and patterns, but also the need to custom design each tattoo that falls from their professional, sterilized equipment.
