Most people are not fortunate enough to be born with a birthmark in the shape of their favourite basketball player or band logo. Rectify nature's mistake with today's Groupon: for $45, you get $100 worth of body art services at Motor City Tattoo Studio on King Street East. Motor City Tattoo charges $130 per hour for work with a minimum rate of $80 being applied to any procedures that take less that a half-hour and $2.18 for every minute afterwards.
The artists at Motor City Tattoo turn plainly pure skin into well-inked works of art, while offering piercings, permanent makeup, and laser tattoo removal in a clean, bright 1,500-sqare-foot interior. Today's Groupon is good for any of these visage-altering services, including removal of age/brown spots, freckles, birthmarks, and some scars. To extricate anything from tattoos to persistent lunch crumbs, Motor City wields the state-of-the-art AlexTriVantage laser with proprietary “Laser Pumped Laser” technology that is gentle on skin and, unlike the mafia, can safely and legally get rid of problem areas. For examples of what colourful creations your body could be sporting, check out the past work of the shop's three tattoo desperadoes Dan Welsh, Cameron Roach, and Ben Delongchamp.
Motor City Tattoo Studio
Sometimes when you leave childhood dreams behind, they still catch up with you. Such was the case with Dan Welsh, who, after a decade in the military that included a tour of Bosnia, found himself returning to the artwork that he had loved as a kid. Rediscovering his passion led him to found Motor City Tattoo Studio—named for his grandfather's Oshawa cab company—where he and three other skilled tattoo artists now bedeck their patrons with custom ink. Amid bright lime-green walls, the team also caters to clients seeking piercings, permanent makeup, and laser tattoo removal. Periodically, the group hosts custom art shows at their studio that aim to inspire guests to get tattoos of especially fetching art frames.
