Graffiti Palace Tattoo features three experienced artists waiting to turn your skin’s canvas into an exquisitely designed art piece. Abl has been tattooing for 21 years and began learning on his own. Now clearly a professional, his passion is apparent in both his art and attitude, as he has been with Graffiti for 15 years. Glen, the one who originally opened Graffiti 15 years ago, was also self-taught. While he considers himself somewhat retired with the tattoo needle, he spends his time taking care of the shop and making sure he stays on top of current business by attending seminars and consulting with artists. Whether you’re looking for an original art piece, one of their 8000 designs or simply a cover-up, the artists at Graffiti can make sure your canvas is exactly as you envisioned.
If you want a tattoo, you can cut corners and end up with some ink you regret forever, or you could go to a place like Rich Ink in Van Nuys. At Rich Ink, hygiene is a top priority: the studio and all equipment is 100% clean, disposable needles are changed for each tat, and each artist is trained in safety procedures including using disinfectant and wearing latex gloves, masks and disposable aprons while they apply ink. They even have a cleaning crew come in every single night and detail every nook and cranny to ensure Rich Ink is completely sterile. Quality is another top priority. Their artists are experienced, professional, and extraordinarily creative. They can take whatever crazy idea you have for a tat and turn it into reality. Rich Ink also does piercings and permanent makeup.
Some things you can skimp on. You don’t need a brand new BMW: a Camry will get you from Point A to Point B just fine. You don’t need a Rolex: your cellphone already provides you with a watch in your pocket. One thing you absolutely should not skimp on is a tattoo. If you’re going to commit to a permanent image on your body, go cheap and you risk an amateur-looking tat and a lifetime of regret for not investing in a more skilled tattoo artist. Yoni Tattoo, which is open from 12PM to 9PM Monday – Saturday and 12PM to 7PM Sunday, features talented and professional tattoo artists that adhere to strict hygienic practices. If you’re looking to get a colorful tattoo, look no further. Julie is the owner and main artist and has earned much recognition and even awards for her color work.
