With years of expertise stowed away in their steady hands, the inksmiths at Funhouse Tattoo San Diego transform swaths of epidermis into personalized pieces of art. Their prowess has gained plenty of outside attention, leading them to be called to the set of The Hangover 2 as prop consultants. The Funhouse facility, resting among the palm-tree-traced streets of Pacific Beach, is a frequent destination for San Diego Chargers players, especially those who need to have the plays permanently doodled onto their arms.

Inside the shop, inked images are available in an assortment of styles. At one station, head artist Leo Cadenazzi sketches the bold lines of Japanese creatures, and at another station, founder Seth Reynolds wraps limbs in symbolic Polynesian portraits. Cadenazzi and Reynolds lead a staff that also specializes in graffiti, realism, and traditional images, such as the Harley-Davidson symbol, an eagle, or Sean Connery getting a tattoo of Sean Connery.

Trained and certified registered nurses dole out all the piercing, permanent makeup, teeth whitening, and skincare treatments offered at Body Art Salon, ensuring each service is backed by medical know-how and a professional appreciation for health and safety standards, which happens to be the salon's top priority. They stock their studio with high-quality body jewelry, such as nose rings, navel rings, and sterling silver onion rings, in order to ensure fast healing. And they send each piercing customer home with thorough aftercare instructions that help prevent infections. The team's permanent makeup applications use MRI-safe ink and last around five to seven years and provide a convenient beauty solution to those with medical conditions or busy schedules.

Friendly, clean, and educational. These tend not to be the first words that come to mind when thinking about a tattoo shop, but at the Allegory Tattoo, owner Pete Walker and his team, that includes Ronan and Steve, ensure clients' experiences go above and beyond their expectations. The team not only provides clients with current portfolios of each trained tattoo artist's work but also encourages guests to watch the tattooist of choice in action. Each friendly artist is keen on collaboration to ensure the image??whether brought in, chosen from the shop's collection, or conceptually rendered by the artist??reflects the patron's personality and style. Tattoos are normally crafted in one-hour sessions and during multiple visits.

Owner and tattoo artist Pete's past pieces have included a portrait of Betty White, colorful koi fish, and realistic flowers, whereas tattoo artist Steve's portfolio is lined with tattoos of a unicorn, flowers and crosses, and geometric designs. Ample parking is available, and discounts are given to those in the military.
