What You'll Get
Most people are not fortunate enough to be born with a birthmark in the shape of their favorite basketball player or band logo. Rectify nature's mistake with today's Groupon for Black Hole Body Piercing and Tattoo, which has locations in Portland and Beaverton. Choose from the following Groupons:
- $49 for $100 worth of tattoo services

Black Hole makes body decorating safe and accessible with two locations, rigorous cleanliness standards, and a licensed staff of tattoo artists and piercers. Those going the piercing route can adorn the head or body with a glint of jewelry, ranging from standard surgical stainless-steel barbells to more-ornate navel rings and conflict-free diamond nostril screws. Black Hole offers ear and facial piercings, including lip, nostril, and labret ($25–$35); body piercings, such as nipple ($25 for one) and surface anchors ($50); genital piercings ($70 on average); and more. Basic starter jewelry starts at $12 and goes up depending on function and style. For inspiration, watch Hellraiser or browse through the gallery of piercing pics, then check out the piercing requirements here.
If your dermis is devoid of decoration, go for the tattooing option, and Black Hole's licensed and experienced tattoo artists can supply the body ink. Come in with a hand-drawn image, a photo, or simply an idea, such as connecting freckle dots, and one of the skilled artists will help make the idea permanent. The tattoo minimum is $50, and pricing varies based on the piece. This Groupon can be used toward a new or an incomplete tattoo of The Art of Fugue.

- The entire piercing process (or gauging process, etc) has been excellent every time. All the piercers are great at chatting it up so you relax and everything is wrapped up all sterile like so you know its cootie free and such good things. – Jesse B., Yelp
- …not only did it go faster than we had planned, but it somehow looked even better than I imagined. It's a great feeling to see the design you've been carrying in your head make it's way to your skin, and be doubt-free as to whether or not it will stay that way. – Jay F., Yelp
