Lovedog Tattoo Studio?s artists craft custom designs to help you wear your thoughts on your sleeve?literally. The clean, hygienic studio accepts walk-in appointments, but it's probably best to take a minute to browse the artists' portfolios and see whose style best suits your vision.

"Rejuv? was inspired because we wanted to offer patients the latest advances in skin rejuvenation and body enhancement," says medical director Dr. John Tang. Dr. Tang and his wife, Alexandra Tang, a registered nurse, opened Rejuv? in 2004 to provide these cosmetic services though nonsurgical and minimally invasive means, such as laser treatments, beauty injectables, and traditional spa appointments. They zap fat, clear complexions, and fade unwanted tattoos of Spiro Agnew, but before they do any of that, they make sure their patients stay healthy with nutrition consultations, hormone-replacement therapy, and exercise regimens.
