Finder’s Keepers Body Piercing focuses on performing high-quality body modification. Its piercers are licensed through the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation, and they use exclusively high-grade, biocompatible, implant-grade jewelry. They focus on proper sterilization and technique so intensively that they even offer an apprenticeship program, licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia. Piercers Jessi, Jessica, Jordan, Kimberly, and Sheena keep portfolios online so that potential piercees can preview their work. In addition to using dermal anchors and piercing popular spots like the ear cartilage, navel, and tongue, the experts at Finder’s Keepers can also pierce below the belt.
Seeing a wolf's face in the palm of a stranger's hand or an Illuminati symbol emblazoned on another's chest might only happen in most people's best dreams, but for artists at Fuzion Ink it's the norm. They spend their days consulting with clients as they design the perfect personal image to permanently ink into their skin. The owners take pride in their spacious and clean studio space, as it gives their artists and clients freedom to safely explore exactly what they want. Their studio also houses a private piercing room where staff members wield surgical-grade stainless steel and implant-grade titanium.
Since 2006, owner and tattoo artist Melinda Rolfe has assisted clients of Dilligaf Tanning, Tattoo, & Piercing in adorning their bodies with vibrant custom artwork and pre-drawn tattoo flash. Some treatments include adorning the areas above upper lips with Monroe piercings, a body modification named after Marilyn Monroe's rebellious mole. For those seeking a less permanent change in appearance, the shop also offers tanning in standup and lie-down beds.
Realizing that every minute spent primping takes away from their clients' free time, the staff of Body & Sol Tanning Boutique streamlines their services so clients can get in, get bronzed, and get out. Clients can simply walk in to the chain location closest to home, after which they consult with the trained tanning specialist over which tanning method is most suitable for their skin. After deciding on intensity and length of sessions, clients hop into one of the five tiers of UV bed. The salon also offers UV-free options such as the automated Mystic HD booth, which is loaded with four different shades of tanning pigment, all of which seep into skin through the use of heated rays. Clients can choose to deepen tans with a range of Devoted Creations tanning accelerators, or simply heighten a tan's contrast with surgically implanted angel wings or the salon's BleachBright teeth-whitening kits.
At James A. Burden, D.D.S. & Associates, comfort and care pave the road to healthy smiles. Here, more than 20 staffers welcome patients with warm personalities and homey accoutrements such as televisions, toys, and a children's stool shaped like an oversized tooth. A duo of dentists—Drs. Burden and Maharty—performs the full gamut of services, from checkups and cleanings to cosmetic treatments such as Invisalign and custom-made veneers. Armed with advanced training in dental implants, Dr. Burden fills mouth gaps with sturdy, natural-looking prosthetic teeth rather than marshmallows shaped like vampire fangs. The dentists also ease patient anxiety with either laughing gas or a pill that produces a mild, conscious sedation, and accommodate busy-bees with early morning and evening appointment slots.
Unlike most doctors, Doctor of Chiropractic Pamela Ruescher of Williamsburg Wellness Center doesn't wait until health issues appear to treat them. That's because she's not like most doctors?Reuscher is a doctor of chiropractic. She and her staff help stave off illness and pain with preventative services. One method of prevention is maintaining a healthy weight through diet and exercise, so the center helps clients jump-start this process with cleansing programs, nutritional counseling, and laser-lipo treatments.
