As high-pitched needles buzzed in the background, a young April Slater traced her father's designs, stenciling with a steady hand and honing her artistic eye. Many years later—after apprenticing and working at several other parlors—Slater opened her own studio, Memento Ink. In the bright, cheerful space, Slater decorates bodies with classic and custom designs while her staff performs piercings and applies permanent makeup. Customers enjoy refreshments in the airy lobby as they browse classic tattoo designs and portfolios of original artwork. Of her studio that she makes available to host charity events, Slater has said, “I wanted everyone to feel welcomed and have the same positive experience, whether it was their first tattoo or they had a full bodysuit.” The Register-Guard suggests that “she’s been successful in doing just that.”
