Like greeting cards, tattoos can capture a range of complex feelings, from love for one's mother to the metaphysical angst of turning 50. Express your emotions inkily with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $100 worth of tattoo services at Garden of Ink in Cottage Grove.
Garden of Ink's tattoo artist, Shelly Davey Dax, adorns ho-hum flesh with both custom and shop designs in a clean, safe, and sterile process. Pay homage to a long-time beau or long-deceased pet goldfish with original artwork created in collaboration with the artist, or outfit your corporeal canvas with a popular stock design such as barbed wire to inspire bravery among biceps that tremble at the mention of flu shots. Manned by a friendly and professional staff, the shop provides a comfortable and welcoming environment for veteran ink brandishers and tattoo newbies alike. Like cake at a stingy uncle's birthday party, tattoos vary in price depending on the size of the piece, but services average about $100 per hour, and there is a minimum of $50 for even the smallest tattoo.
