The artists at The Missing Piece Tattoo decorate appendages with permanently inked masterpieces. Artists draw upon their respective portfolios to emblazon emotional statements upon unblemished skin or to cover up tats bearing the names of unrequited loves and lost pet monkeys. Clients seeking personalized embellishments may consult with artists to forge custom-crafted images, and laser removal services erase unwanted tattoos. Skin-painters open single-use needles from sterile packages in front of their clients before work commences, and tools and countertops receive routine chemical sterilization overseen by a registered nurse.
Just seven months after tattoo artist Avery Willmann opened UndeadInk Studios, his shop outranked 43 other tattoo and piercing shops to take the third place spot on KREM2's The Best of Spokane list. Along with artists Ryan Chapman and Jack Snowdon, Willmann embellishes flesh with custom ornate designs and can easily replicate images from a provided drawing or a charcoal rubbing of a sailor's bicep. All ink work is kept vibrant with a lifetime guarantee that includes free touchup service for customers who correctly follow their aftercare instructions. Those who prefer bodily adornment with more bling can also solicit the talents of the shop's piercing specialist Raven Wright, who bestows studs and other ornaments onto faces, navels, and ears.
The artists at Hidden Addiction Tattoo Studio can transform any concept into a permanent masterpiece, whether it’s a simple shape or complex illustration. On the simpler end of the spectrum, there’s a bracelet of flowers, a ruby-red kiss, and a spray of stars. More complex works include a sleeve with flowers blooming around a colorful skull reminiscent of the Day of the Dead, as well as a rosary etched onto the chest.
