Tattooing is an ancient practice that has helped people blend in with walls of ink since before the dawn of ink. Adorn Body Art is a Best of Citysearch parlor that's female-owned and specializes in custom tattoos. Whether you wish to be forever reunited with the thoughtful blue jay that spent so many summers pecking at your bay window, or you're merely looking to peeve your father's step-dad, artful tattoos begin with a $50 non-refundable deposit applied to the cost of your tattoo. An hour's worth of service ranges from $100 to $125 depending on the artist and the nature of the design you choose.
Each of Adorn's artists has his or her own stylistic point of view that can fully bring to life whatever images your mind can shape. Today's deal gives you six months to decide on an ideal design and a fitting location for your own personal sea of ink that sets you apart from the skin-colored body suits of others.
Citysearchers give Adorn Body Art a perfect five stars and a 2007 Best of Citysearch award for Best Tattoo/Piercing. Seven Yelpers give it 4.5 stars:
- This place is phenomenal. The staff is personable, professional, and TALENTED. I have been to Christy Fish (who I highly recommend; her art is unbelievable) twice now, and I'll be going back to her again and again. For custom work, I can't think of a better place. – Dame Pele, Citysearch
- These guys are the best. The staff is courteous, professional, and TALENTED. They will be doing all my work. – firepirate, Citysearch
- Adorn is awesome, I got my only two tattoos there. When I went in for my first one I brought a two [sic] pictures of what I wanted and explained what aspect of each picture I wanted included in the tattoo. My tattoo artist was Jesse, and he is super chill! – lovelife18, Citysearch
Adorn Body Art
Similar to Superman and a telephone booth, people walk into Adorn Body Art with one appearance, and walk out with another. Instead of a cape, they exit brandishing new piercings, customized tattoos, and other creative body modifications. But unlike the man of steel, the customers here need some help with their quick change––and that's where the Adorn staff steps in. The studio's body piercers average more than a decade of experience apiece, and its tattoo artists cover a wide range of styles, from traditional to realistic to delicate. And, to ensure a perfect design each time, these ink gurus compliment their own ideas with hundreds of reference books, each of which was kicked out of the city library for rebelling against the Dewey Decimal System.
