After more than 30 years of nursing experience, which includes membership in the Dermatology Nurse Association and the American Society for Plastic Surgical Nurses, Lillian Lang RN decided to focus her career on aesthetics. Her blend of clinical expertise and artistry has now been seen on four continents. Her services include sclerotherapy, chemical peels, photofacials, and laser hair removal to remove unwanted hairs. With more than 23 years and having achieved Master Status in permanent makeup, Lillian Lang specializes in applying permanent eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip color.
The artists at Empire Tattoo Inc adorn bodies with indelible designs and semipermanent pieces of jewelry. Their work ranges from realistic to abstract, spanning the gamut from portraits and florals to edgy venn diagrams. The cosmetic artist on staff imbues faces with permanent brow liner, eyeliner, and lip color using techniques approved by the Beau Institute of Permanent & Corrective Cosmetics.
Unlike most salons, Wynnewood Salon is not in the business of styling hair. Instead, board-certified practitioner Emily Jones uses electrolysis to rid the skin of unwanted strands. She administers treatments to areas across the body—the hairline, chest, legs, hands, toes—and to patients with all skin types and hair colors.
Even if the licensed staffers at Simply Ink Tattoo didn’t apply your tattoo originally, they have no problem touching it up. This isn’t to say they don’t create original tattoos, though. Each artist combines specialization with versatility, delivering stunning ink in his or her chosen field or across traditional categories including black-and-grey, color, and lettered tattoos. They also dig collaboration, working with customers to design all-new imagery or bring to life pre-existing sketches and ideas.
To merely call Mr. Kaves prolific is to understate his colorful career as an artist. The free-spirited owner of Brooklyn Made Tattoo came of age in the tunnels of the New York City transit system, where he began crafting elaborate graffiti murals before he hit his teenage years. These murals caught the attention of other local artists—not to mention the NYPD. As his persona grew, Kaves moved on to more legal forms of self-expression. He made a name for himself as an MC for the hip-hop group Lordz of Brooklyn and started crafting commissioned street art for companies such as MTV and Adidas and artists such as Beastie Boys, Metallica, and Everlast.
At his boutique tattoo parlor in Bay Ridge, Kaves continues to find new outlets for his creativity. When he doesn't have a mic or an aerosol can in hand, he expresses himself with tattoos that feature elaborate lettering and full-color imagery. Kaves and his team of incredible artists create lively tattoos six days a week at the shop.
