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 $25, you get $53 worth of piercings, jewelry, and tattoos at Darkhorse Tattoo in Edmonds.
The deft artists and piercers of Darkhorse Tattoo wield their body-adorning needles with skill and style within their shop's squeaky-clean interior. A plethora of body-piercing services enables customers to add semi-permanent accents to their bodily tableau, mimicking the Mona Lisa's rise in value after she pierced her septum. All new piercings clutch surgical-grade stainless-steel jewelry, including hematite-beaded captive bead rings and barbells. Add extra interest for lip readers by threading a lip with a ring ($50). Take time to smell the style of a nasaldazzling ($50) or empower the eyebrows with a curved barbell capable of simultaneously expressing surprise, swagger, and a love of alloys ($50). Once pierced, Groupon holders can enjoy a special discount on select pieces of Darkhorse's body jewelry.
Beyond getting threaded and or studded, drop-ins can also make their mark by taking a seat in the shop's skin-saluting tattoo chair. Because tattooing rates vary, based on a variety of factors, clients are encouraged to phone ahead before committing to elaborate endeavors including highly detailed color pieces or full-body tattooed tributes to the limbic system.
Professional tattoo artists Sasha King and Micah Nelson preside over a choir of buzzing needles as they ink clients with designs that range from detailed black-and-white portraits to simple kanji letters. Though immaculately clean, their Edmonds studio eschews the coldness of a medical clinic in favor of a warmth that reflects the artists’ own dispositions. While Sasha and Micah outfit skin with colorful sleeves or all-black tuxedo vests, their piercing counterparts embellish ears, lips, noses, and brows with studs or surgical steel rings.
