Body art can be traced back as far back as prehistoric eras, and Future Skin embraced the practice around 1986, proudly escorting the ancient tradition into the new millennium thanks to its pool of artistic talent. Three tattoo artists each bring signature flourishes to their work, festooning biceps, forearms, or any other imaginable body surface with meticulous, lifelike portraits and abstract patterns and designs. Piercing artists give a fashionable and edgy look to septa, navels, and out-of-date doll sets with industrial piercing and dermal anchors. The facility also staffs a permanent-makeup artist so clients can spend less time on morning routines, and offers laser tattoo removal by the square inch.
In the early 1990s, Blackstar Body Piercing proprietor Roger Monahan found that public health guidelines lacked a comprehensive understanding of his industry. So he rewrote them. The municipality adopted the suggestions, and Roger was immediately pegged as a go-to expert on best practices for piercers. Then, in 1998, Roger's procedures for client safety and sterilization formed the basis of the Ontario Protocols, which the government adopted for personal service workers province-wide. Yet such meticulous procedures had always been the norm at Roger's own studio. In addition to Blackstar's hygienic installation of body art, clients enjoy free aftercare support and detailed advice to ensure that pierced navels heal properly and that hula hoops are only used as earrings with due caution.

WhiteShade’s technicians brighten teeth with the 45- to 90-minute power-whitening treatment. Reportedly developed by the minds behind Zoom! whitening, WhiteShade’s process begins as techs line bite-registration trays with a pH-neutral carbamide-peroxide gel. Clients then sink incisors into the mouthpieces and recline while a lens-focused light shines onto teeth. The light awakens the gel while also raising the temperature within the dental trays to penetrate through the enamel layer. As surface stains begin to dissolve or consider relocating to carpets, the gel oxygenates and brightens the naturally yellow dentin layer, which shows through more visibly as the enamel thins with age. The treatment typically lightens mouth ivories from three to eight shades and results can last up to two years if patients maintain good oral hygiene and cancel their chewable coal subscription.
