Piercing in Birdland

Select Local Merchants

Friendly, clean, and educational. These tend not to be the first words that come to mind when thinking about a tattoo shop, but at the Allegory Tattoo, owner Pete Walker and his team, that includes Ronan and Steve, ensure clients' experiences go above and beyond their expectations. The team not only provides clients with current portfolios of each trained tattoo artist's work but also encourages guests to watch the tattooist of choice in action. Each friendly artist is keen on collaboration to ensure the image??whether brought in, chosen from the shop's collection, or conceptually rendered by the artist??reflects the patron's personality and style. Tattoos are normally crafted in one-hour sessions and during multiple visits.

Owner and tattoo artist Pete's past pieces have included a portrait of Betty White, colorful koi fish, and realistic flowers, whereas tattoo artist Steve's portfolio is lined with tattoos of a unicorn, flowers and crosses, and geometric designs. Ample parking is available, and discounts are given to those in the military.

Trained and certified registered nurses dole out all the piercing, permanent makeup, teeth whitening, and skincare treatments offered at Body Art Salon, ensuring each service is backed by medical know-how and a professional appreciation for health and safety standards, which happens to be the salon's top priority. They stock their studio with high-quality body jewelry, such as nose rings, navel rings, and sterling silver onion rings, in order to ensure fast healing. And they send each piercing customer home with thorough aftercare instructions that help prevent infections. The team's permanent makeup applications use MRI-safe ink and last around five to seven years and provide a convenient beauty solution to those with medical conditions or busy schedules.

Using the body as their canvas, the artists at SDInk Tattoo and Body Piercing bring a client’s vision to life in any size, shape, and color. The artists, who specialize in tattoos that contour to the shape of the body, use vivid colors, satin blacks and greys, and ultraviolet ink visibile under black light to create custom tattoos. In additional to traditional and Japanese designs, the artists also create realistic portraits that can depict a loved one or beloved pet. And though ink is their specialty, the shop's professionals also pierce any body part that falls above the waist. Customers must be 18 or older for tattoos, but piercings are available for customers under 18 with a consenting parent or guardian.
