Like a company-wide cage match, a tattoo requires a high pain threshold, lots of barbed wire, and shelter from the boss's view. Get executive-level ink with today's Groupon: for $99, you get two hours of tattoo artwork at Aardvark Tattoo Company (a $240 value).

Licensed tattoo artists Paul Thomas and Risa Stevens wield expert skill and an artful eye to adorn bodies with vibrant custom designs within Aardvark Tattoo Company's immaculate studio. With a light and rapid touch, the ink augurs cover skin in elegant lines, vivid colors, and, upon customer request, quantum algorithms, using only disposable needles and double-sterilized equipment that keep epidermal canvases clean and healthy. Every piece begins with a preliminary consultation, allowing clients to share their vision and for artists to offer suggestions and advice about design, color, and location. Once the branding plan is in place, tat tycoons can draw inspiration from a range of sources including an in-studio library, the Internet, and the inkee's own images to forge a masterpiece worthy of a lifelong place on the body ($50 deposit required if the piece requires a drawing). Otherwise, guests can opt to have existing tattoos extended or enhanced, employing artisans to darken faded lines, complete half sleeves, or replicate full stanzas pulled from Robert Frost's tattoo.

Aardvark Tattoo Company

Like a fingerprint, a snowflake, or a social security number, every piece of body art created by Aardvark Tattoo Company's tattoo artists is unique. Unlike those at other tattoo shops who work from preset designs, co-owners Risa Stevens and Paul Thomas lead a team of artists who create custom designs based on clients’ input. Each artist specializes in a different style, such as portraits, photorealism, art nouveau, feminine tattoos, and proper spellings of extremely long words. Meanwhile, the shop’s piercing specialist safely and precisely helps clients add jewelry to any part of the body.

Customer Reviews

Aardvark is great. I see Risa, and I don't think she's usually available through the Groupon deals these days, but she's worth it. My original piece took three sessions and I'm going back today. Lets just say I'm moving across the country soon and I wanted to make sure she did the additions I was considering before I left!
