Forever Ink’s head tattoo artist, Derek, has been leaving his permanent record on biceps, ankles, and all points in between for more than 20 years. Naturally, his portfolio has accrued an extensive selection of colorful and black-and-white tattoos, its pages popping with everything from grim reapers to written phrases to hand-drafted custom images.

Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin.

The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.
