Like any good tattoo studio, Evol Ink Studio maintains a strict set of health-code guidelines, working with disposable tools and performing on-site sterilization in a steam autoclave. But the staff prides itself on having a cozy, well-lit space, instead of a cold, medical-looking facility.

While waiting for their tattoo or piercing, patrons can recline on comfy rich brown leather couch and gaze at the artwork from local artists adorning the walls. Or they can flip through the studio's flash design books and tattoo magazines, though those are really only in the shop to help customers think of a great idea for their own custom tattoo.

The artists can ink complicated tiger heads, tiny owls the size of a quarter, or photo realistic portraits of a loved one smiling or Mr. T pitying a fool. And the piercers rely on implant-grade internally-threaded titanium jewelry, giving skin the cleanest possible cut and best chance of healing without issue.

In case you were wondering, Dead Girlz Tattoo & Boutique isn’t staffed by the undead. Actually, the parlor—aptly open since Halloween 2011—and its name pay homage to hearse-driving owner Dollie Martin’s love of zombies. Her adoration for ghouls comes second to tattooing, a mastery of which she displays with her colorful, customized designs, from Superman logos to sultry Jessica Rabbits. In addition to her ink work, Dollie is a licensed and certified body piercer who expertly readies body areas for Dead Girlz’s jewelry pieces, made from materials such as titanium and silicone.
