Rather than let tattoos naturally fade over time, NYC Tattoo Removal Spa's lasers swiftly break down ink so the body can absorb it. They keep chipping away at the tattoo every seven weeks, which allows the body to absorb more and more fragments of the tattoo until it has disappeared. Along with tattoo removal, the spa's aestheticians enrich skin with services such as waxing, facials, and chemical peels.
Like some of the best two-in-one combinations, Tattoo Shot Lounge takes two things that work well as separate entities, tattoo parlors and bars, and combines them into one great thing. Patrons stop by the lounge for a tattoo or piercing and then head across the room to the full liquor bar. There, they raise a mojito or chocolate martini and toast to a new tribal or Laura Bush tattoo. Those with fresh ink, those with older ink, or those simply stopping by for a quick hello can also swing by the lounge on Thursday evenings for Latin Night featuring a live DJ and the throbbing beats of salsa, hip-hop, and house music.
Jewel 32's team of piercing pros and jewel experts adorns bodies with necklaces, earrings, rings, and other trimmings. Lighted glass cabinets line the walls, casting baubles from brands such as Murano, Twisted Blade, and Swarovski in a soft glow. The staff decorates lobes with marcasite earrings, replete with elegant dark stones, encircles fingers in engraved sterling-silver skull rings, and wraps ankles or bottles of ketchup in delicate sterling-silver flowers and freshwater pearls. Piercing professionals imbue noses, ears, eyebrows, and an array of other areas with new jewelry receptacles that can house favorites from Jewel 32's extensive collection of gold, silver, and diamond body jewelry, including gauges from sizes 00–20 and ornate navel rings.
Cooks at India House Express craft traditional chicken vindaloo dishes as well as roti wraps and biryani bowls for dine-in, take-out, or delivery. Mango lassis, blended with yogurt and fresh fruit and glasses of beer and wine round out meals.
Led by tattooist Patrick O’Meara, the team of body artists at OMearicana Ink performs body piercings and inks clients with custom-designed tattoos as well as Chinese characters, Celtic designs, and classic tats from the tattoo parlor’s library. While artists draw up custom tattoo designs, waiting guests can peruse a selection of body jewelry and T-shirts.
Clean Slate Laser eschews injections, creams, and acids for Q-switched laser technology, which can break down tattoo pigment without penetrating the deeper layers of skin and causing scars. Clients relax on plush treatment beds as certified specialists target the laser on everything from full sleeves to small written reminders of where you hid the gold. As the laser sweeps over the area, a cooling device quickly follows to optimize comfort.
