Creating artwork that lasts a lifetime is what the tattoo specialists at Electric Chair Tattoo do daily, and that?s why they work closely with clients to fit them with the right piece. Their styles range from religious-themed and surrealism to realism and dark fantasy. The staff at the ink-filled studio also includes a piercing technician capable of adorning nearly any body part with studs, bars, and rings.
Freak Chic adorns sensational skin with a plethora of pigments and piercings, customizing looks courtesy of its four resident tattoo artists and two piercers. With decades of experience, the tattoo artists' steady hands sketch out epidermis etchings, transferring two-dimensional images into a living art piece arrayed across appendages ($150/hour, with an $80 deposit).
More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
At A-Town Tattoo Studio, owner Si’I Liufau and his team of artists blanket bodies in meticulously inked images, symbols, and words. The group specializes in authentic Polynesian tattoos and 3-D tattoos, but can permanently embed any type of design on the skin, including fine-line etchings, lifelike portraits, and cross-dimensional portals. The studio strictly maintains a clean environment, using a brand-new needle for each imaging session. Equipment and stations are disinfected after every sitting, and the shop is disinfected on a daily basis to discourage bacteria buildup and to keep creations from coming to life.
The artists at Inkling Tattoo Gallery showcase their craft just as skillfully on customers' skin as they do on the canvas and paper adorned on the studio's walls. The tattoo shop, which hosts interactive art parties and comedy nights, also doubles as a working art gallery with a drawing and painting area. Inside, hand-drawn and painted pieces are brandished alongside custom tattoo designs. When inking skin, the crew can tattoo stylized text, floral patterns, and realistic portraiture that commemorates loved ones and retired newscasters with equal aplomb.
