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 $50 worth of tattoos, piercings, and accessories at River City Tattoo. Today’s deal is valid at River City’s North Boulevard, North Parham Road, and Midlothian Turnpike locations in Richmond as well as its Brook Road location in Glen Allen.
Certified by the Alliance of Professional Tattooists, River City Tattoo inks and bedazzles the human apparatus with the help of a professional staff and a large selection of body jewelry. Display your love for your mother or incessant admiration for eggplant with a custom tattoo designed by one of the shop's skilled artists (starting at $50).
Lobes ($25+), eyebrows ($55+), and navels ($55+) can be aerated with the help of one of River City’s proficient piercers; each prettifying poke includes the piercing itself, jewelry (which comes with a lifetime warranty), and a three-week checkup.
The already pierced can pick from a plethora of body jewelry, including organic adornments fashioned from bone and exotic hardwood, budget-friendly options in materials such as surgical steel and acrylics, and hand-carved stones ($36+), sterling silver ($57+), and expensive gemstone pieces that up the retail value of body parts. Piercing and tattoo aftercare products such as Aquaphor and H2Ocean ($10+) help customers care for their newly needled skin.
Providing a safe and sanitized environment, River City utilizes only single-use needles and adheres to strict autoclave sterilization procedures. The stores are also certified in all up-to-date sanitation, CPR, and bloodborne-pathogen processes, making the savvy staff members excellent study buddies before biology exams.
