Ever Beauty Clinic's certified permanent-makeup artist, Dr. Diny Park, makes facial features sing with artfully applied tattooed cosmetics. Using a specialized machine, the experienced techs carefully apply pigment and essence of Cleopatra into the skin's dermal layer. Clients can opt to accentuate lashes with the application of a solid line, small dots, or smudged line, or to fill in sparse or uneven brows. After the one-hour procedure, treatment areas may be slightly swollen and will darken over the next few days as they heal, peel, and fade. Permanent makeup is chosen by busy beauties who want to cut down on their morning-ritual time, as well as by alopecia patients and those allergic to traditional makeup and seasonal eyeliner hailstorms.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
A self-proclaimed 'lifestyle shop,' Black Banditz medieval-inspired interior is a melting pot of tattooing, hair artistry, and live music. Beginning as a photo blog featuring shots from events around town taken by Adam Moonves and Dan Regan, the two soon brought on Giovanny Artiga to do pop-up events and impromptu tattooing sessions. From there, the concept for Black Banditz was born, and the storefront on Melrose came to fruition. Today, the store is home to a moveable stage for live performances, five tattoo artists, three hair stylists, and a partridge in a pear tree. There, the staff performs a host of unique services from feather hair extensions to glow-in-the-dark tattoos.
