Like a company-wide cage match, a tattoo requires a high pain threshold, lots of barbed wire, and shelter from the boss's view. Bedeck bare skin with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get one hour of tattoo work at Allegory (a $140 value). This Groupon is valid for any design and area. All clients must be 18 years of age or older.
High levels of skill and creativity go into each timeless piece of body art created in Allegory’s hygienic studio, where professional artists embellish skin with custom and classic designs. The shop’s friendly and approachable artists understand that each tattoo reflects a powerful statement of individuality, so they eschew generic images for artwork that captures the vibrant personality of its wearer. As patrons lie back and relax to the buzzing lullabies of the tattoo gun, artists carefully render the contours of Masonic treasure maps and back-length portraits of Betty White. While one-hour sessions can produce small personal pieces in black or full color, this Groupon can also be used toward sharpening the lines of an older tattoo or completing a much larger birthday-suit lapel. The time it takes to complete a tattoo can vary, so clients must schedule an appointment and prepare to listen while artists expound on the potential pitfalls of tattooed mustaches and monocles.
Friendly, clean, and educational. These tend not to be the first words that come to mind when thinking about a tattoo shop, but at the Allegory Tattoo, owner Pete Walker and his team, that includes Narnia and Steve, ensure clients' experiences go above and beyond their expectations. The team not only provides clients with current portfolios of each trained tattoo artist's work but also encourages guests to watch the tattooist of choice in action. Each friendly artist is keen on collaboration to ensure the image––whether brought in, custom designed, or conceptually rendered by the artist––reflects the patron's personality and style.
Owner and tattoo artist Pete's past portfolio, ranges in all styles from photo realism to cartoon styles whereas tattoo artist Steve's portfolio revolves more around American traditional work. Narnia has a broad range of style from neo-traditional to Graphic Design. Ample parking is available.
