Under the direction of owner Javier Acero, who has been a tattoo artist for over a decade, Tattoo and Co. provides tattooing, piercing and body art applications to a discerning crowd of hardcore Miami locals. The bright, clean shop on SW 40th Street is filled with a wild array of art pieces, paintings and design elements, from tiki-style carvings to colorful bits of art that make the white-walled space pop. Each of Tattoo and Co.’s artists operate in much the same way, with differing and unique styles offered by each individual staff member. Luckily, photo books and design samples are readily available, meaning guests can find the look that matches their personality before making an appointment with the appropriate artist. Piercings are also widely available, as are permanent makeup tattoos, with procedures being done in private rooms that run along a wide, narrow corridor.
