Angel Ink's licensed skin artists emblazon epidermal layers with decorative designs, individualizing each tattoo for proud display or hidden reminiscences. In each 60-minute session, Jason will customize skin suits with old-school regalia or intricate Japanese designs. Specializing in black-and-gray portraits, cover-ups, and reworks, this inking guru can don physiques with a customer's own drawings or transform once meaningful Buffy the Vampire Slayer quotes into timeless artwork. Jason will grace newly bedecked skin palettes with one free touchup after the healing process ceases, with the exception of hand and foot tattoos. While simple designs can be completed in an hour, more elaborate work, such as a full-body tuxedo or an in-depth exploration of pi, may require additional time not covered by the cost of this Groupon.
At Avanti, a full-service salon, certified stylists cut, color, and style heads of hair.

Elements of Style’s 23 stylists and aestheticians bring together their individual specialties as they care for clients from follicle to toenail. They collectively tackle anything from a basic trim to a frost treatment ideal for those trying not to stand out among gangs of snowmen. Therapists, meanwhile, can soothe beleaguered muscles with hot-stone massages, and body wraps with salt-glow treatments leave skin looking vibrantly healthy. The center also caters to more technical concerns with med-spa-quality treatments, including microdermabrasion sessions and cosmetic laser treatments that help to conceal the appearance of acne blemishes.
In her private chamber within Elements of Style Salon & More, Nicole Cereghino is cataloging all of the ingredients found in beauty products that clog pores. The list is long and full of surprises such as algae extract, cocoa butter, and spackle, but Cereghino has devoted her business, Pure Radiance Revealed, to restoring skin's healthy glow without them. Instead, she relies on fruit enzymes and natural acids to gently buff away dead and damaged tissue during her six specialty facials. Particle-free diamond microdermabrasion furthers this goal with minimal irritation to the skin, and soft, LED light and microcurrent technology promote cellular renewal below the surface for a firmer, more youthful complexion. Cereghino also takes an interest in waxing and styling hair, particularly the creation of romantic weaves and updos for wedding parties that she executes in tandem with colleagues at Elements of Style Salon & More.
