The Boom Boom Room Karaoke's repertoire of Japanese, Filipino, Chinese, and English instrumental tracks keeps persons of all singing abilities occupied for hours. The space boasts five smaller private rooms and two larger ones, each outfitted with high-definition flat screens with DVD and auxiliary input options that can accommodate PlayStations, Xboxs, and portable imaginations. Guests can also bring their own stage-fright-quelling libations until midnight.
Artists at Pacific Soul Tattoo draw from 30 years of collective experience to ink custom art onto skin. Specialists in Asian- and Polynesian-styled tattoos, the needle-drawers regularly pay homage to clients’ heritage with buzzed-about traditional tribal designs or vivid sketches of Grandma’s pot roast. During a 30-minute consultation, clients chat with artists to describe their ideal body art, from black-and-white patterns to full-color portraits. Artists sketch original designs before transforming blank skin into a vibrant canvas. As some designs may take more than one hour, Groupon holders should confer with artists to determine the total duration and potential additional cost of large tattoos, complex designs, or decorating their every freckle with a visor. In addition to rigorously upholding sanitary standards such as sterilizing all equipment and discarding all disposable items after a single use, the shop’s tattoo artists are certified in blood-borne pathogens and can identify a germ from 10 paces.
