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.
On the walls of DnL Hair Studio, portraits of Marilyn Monroe and Lady Gaga bespeak an upbeat atmosphere where both edgy and classic looks are welcome. The stylists—grouped into three levels that correspond with experience—treat hair exclusively with Redken products. They pass beneath chandeliers to reach the chic-vintage bureaus at their stations, remodeling 'dos with services that range from smoothing formulas to simple trims. They can also wax unwanted hair from brows, chins, lips, and sideburns trying to annex the nose.
