As an artist, Josh Wiley's canvas is the human skin. The owner of Modified Skin Tattoos, along with a staff of guest artists, transforms epidermal layers into a living portfolio. Though the artists' styles vary, their work reflects the wants and expectations of their clients, which is carefully communicated during consultations. For fans of fantasy or gaming, they have inked vivid profiles of flaming skulls or of popular superheroes such as Batman. For those who want realistic portraits to commemorate loved ones, they have captured detailed likenesses without having to press a face into piece of tracing paper and wrap it around a bicep.
The artists also renew tattoos with cover-up work that conceals unwanted images, and they use UV ink to create tattoos that are completely invisible until they are exposed to a black light. In addition to tattoo services, Modified Skin Tattoos also adorns bodies with dangly pendants, minimalist studs, and other jewelry that can bedazzle piercings and microdermal anchors.
After being diagnosed with skin cancer at a young age, Polished Skin Spa & Wellness Center's owner Yvonne Hubrich knew it was time to make a change. She altered her skincare regime, gave up her favorite tanning bed, and took care of her skin until it was healthy again. Along the way, Yvonne discovered a passion for helping others find beauty in themselves, which led her to open Polished Skin Spa & Wellness Center. Along with hairstyling and massage, Yvonne and her staff take care to educate each client about beauty techniques. After performing chemical peels, dermaplaning, and other skincare therapies, aestheticians help each person develop a personalized skincare regimen.
From decorative lettering and colorful flowers to flaming skulls with dice for eyes, the artists at Creative Ink Tattoo Studio can pretty much do it all. Clients can choose a tattoo from dozens of design ideas, or work one-on-one with the artist to come up with a completely custom piece. The team can also help revise tattoo blunders and undo bad memories with cover-up art.
