Like octopi, tattoos contain ink, are typically found among sailors, and can frighten young children in swimming pools. Protect tots from scary tats with today's Groupon to Overground Tattoo in El Cajon: for $40, you get a tattooing-and-aftercare package (a $90 total value). The package includes:
- One hour of tattoo work (an $80 value)
- Tatwax aftercare balm (a $10 value)
The artists at Overground Tattoo ornament skeleton-swaddlers with one-of-a-kind dermal murals. The shop's crisp blue walls display body art drawn by Overground's safety-certified ink-spillers, each design as unique as a snowflake's fingerprint. Artists come from varying backgrounds and specialize in different styles, such as portraits and realism, script, old school, and fantasy, enabling customers to indulge creative image ideas, such as the head of Eleanor Roosevelt on the body of a serpent. Busy beauties can take advantage of permanent makeup to put their best face forward even when caught in a morning rush or lipstick monsoon. After the last drop of pigment is added, customers leave the shop with a tin of Tatwax aftercare balm, which soothes tender doodles with a healing dollop of aloe vera and vitamins.
Julianna and Thomas, the artists at Overground Tattoo, merge their individual expertise and artistic influences to create inimitable body art for their clients. Julianna’s steady hands have emblazoned clients with such images as a bespectacled owl with textured yellow wings, whereas Thomas has scripted skin with names, flowers, and inspirational phrases such as Love Your Life and Chew Before You Swallow. After augmenting their clients’ exteriors with tattoos and permanent makeup, the duo arms them with pertinent aftercare tips, such as washing tattoos with antimicrobial soap or not exposing them to the sun lest the sun jealously copies them.
