The trio of tattoo artists at Mountainside Tattoo & Piercing transform skin into canvas by coloring hands, feet, and all areas in between with vibrant ink. Customers can choose from thousands of designs or come up with a tattoo of their own. One of the artists makes it permanent using high-quality Kuro Sumi ink. For those in need of a new piercing, the shop also emblazons navels, ears, and more with body jewelry.
The highly trained staff at HLC Med harnesses futuristic technology and its own line of products for services that heal, rejuvenate, and beautify. In the guffawing face of father time, technicians roll up their sleeves and unholster their lasers, blasting away acne scarring, rosacea, or hyperpigmentation with the Radiancy SpectraClear system. A chilled-tip laser uproots party-crashing hair from any skin type, and a Q-switched KTP YAG laser sends sun spots packing. Custom chemical peels stimulate cell renewal and collagen production to fill out fine lines, and radio-frequency devices firm up skin and smooth out cellulite. The center also offers services for men, including laser treatments for razor bumps, back-hair removal, and a gentleman's facial that moisturizes faces more effectively than head-butting Poseidon.
The ink artists of this tattoo parlor draw upon different techniques and backgrounds to draw upon their customers. Tattoo artist and bass player Ryan Fleming specializes in traditional tattooing that draws upon spooky images. Taking a different visual tack, Jennifer Moore finds that her skills as a spiritual healer flow into her tattooing and take shape as beautiful birds of paradise or entangled flowers. But all the staff artists have one thing in common—they use their talents to give their clients truly original artwork that won't run onto anyone else's body.
Tattoo artist Ryan Wilson?s designs range from the whimsical to the macabre, decorating skin in everything from Hello Kitty to the Grim Reaper. Skilled in applying both black-and-white and colored ink, Ryan sets to work on skin across the body. He emblazons backs with printed letters, shoulders with delicate birds, and wrists with common Jeopardy! answers.
Many an aesthetic problem has yielded to Norma Cataldo, the clinical director of Cosmetic Laser Solutions. She has been fixing dermal flaws with noninvasive beams of light for more than 10 years, remedying conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, cellulite, and spider veins.
At the clinic, she is supported by Dr. Patrick Marasco, a board-certified plastic surgeon. With their combined skills, they are able to treat patients to more invasive procedures in their in-office surgical suite as well as lively harmonies over the intercom system.
