For a perpetually beautified pair of brows, lips, or eyes, or even for a brand-new beauty mark, clients visit Permanent Cosmetics by Missy.

If a jack of all trades is a master of none, then the aestheticians at Eyebrow Hub can safely call themselves masters of the art of eyebrow threading. They rid hirsute foreheads of unwanted stragglers, leaving behind gorgeously arched brows, but none of the redness, swelling, or amorous bees left by waxing. Despite the name, the threadsters also apply their hair-removal services to other areas, including upper lips, chins, and legs. Guests with a mind to supplement their threading, can go in for henna tattoos, eyelash extensions, and microdermabrasion.

Burrowed among such historical downtown sights as Union Square and the Chinatown gates, Moth and Dagger Tattoo Studio leaves its own permanent mark on San Francisco by outfitting the city's residents with custom tattoos. Well-rounded inksmiths Mario Delgado, Justin Davis, and Joe Kelly run the shop, and all are trained in their own unique styles. Mario specializes in realism, sprawling familiar images across limbs and buzzing them to life in full color or black and gray. Justin represents a more familiar approach with traditional American and Japanese designs. Joe's specialty is pointillism or stippling?creating intricate images out of thousands of little dots. When they're not sketching new images, the trio is fixing or covering up old tattoos, allowing clients to finally have the confidence to leave the house naked.
