The Hole Story's owner and piercing and tattoo artist InkBoy The Don is truly a self-made professional. He started sketching in high school, teaching himself composition and shading. As his prowess with the pencil grew, he began creating logos and drawings for clients. Eventually his desire to create permanent art led him to purchase a tattoo kit and practice the trade of body art, mostly on himself. Sure enough, after getting himself to agree to be his client, his customer base grew: first, family members requested some ink, then friends, and before long, people with whom he had no prior connection.
An eventual tattoo apprenticeship and a move to begin T-shirt printing and piercing solidified his status as a professional creator, making him a one-artist army at The Hole Story. Clients can come to the shop for a new eyebrow piercing or supplement their wardrobe with items from The Don's personal clothing line. The Don, of course, also adorns clients with colorful tattoos that celebrate special memories or remind them in which pocket they keep the car keys they hide from friends.
Working in the medium of ink and skin, the artists at Black Lotus Tattoo Gallery create custom works of art in a squeaky clean shop. Led by owner Halo, whose portrait-style and freehand work can be viewed here, this crew sends clients home with indelible, one-of-a-kind designs and expertly inserted body jewelry. For those sporting outdated or botched ink, the studio offers Tatt2Away tattoo-removal procedures, which diminish old tats without the use of lasers or giant pink erasers.
Pride & Glory Tattoo Studio
Walls bedecked with vivid artwork make known the heart of Pride & Glory, an artist-formed tattoo and piercing studio, as dedicated to the history and tradition of tattooing as it is to the future of the form. The skilled staffers bring with them artistic backgrounds in painting, sculpting, and invisible-ink portraiture, and pair their well-practiced trades with an impressive stock of body jewelry and after-care products. Free consultations encourage guests to thoughtfully plan their ink, and hundreds of flash-art designs cater to patrons in search of inspiration.
