Six Things to Know About Affinity Tattoo and Body Piercing
From their studio on Austin's famed 6th Street, the artists and piercers at Affinity Tattoo and Body Piercing craft masterworks using the body as a canvas. However, they blend their Type-B creativity with a Type-A commitment to cleanliness, resulting in body art that's as safe as it is stunning. Read on to see how the studio has become a haven for body mods of all types:
The artists work on your schedule. If you know what you want, you can walk right in and get it—even at 1 a.m. If you don’t, you can peruse the artists’ portfolios to generate and refine ideas.
Freehand technique is the norm... That means the tattoo artists and piercers don’t use forceps, which can cause tissue trauma.
...and so is aseptic technique. The same approach used in many operating rooms, this technique minimizes exposure to microorganisms, as well as ruthlessly avoids cross contamination of equipment.
They’ve never seen a tattoo they couldn’t fix. Maybe it was done by an early-stage artist, or maybe your tastes have changed. Whatever the reason, Affinity’s artist can transform cheapo ink into portfolio-worthy piece.
Implant-grade metals only, please. Every piece of body jewelry is crafted from nickel-free titanium or gold, and all are internally threaded or threadless. This dramatically cuts down on the tissue damage associated with external threads.
The studio doubles as a jewelry showroom. From navel curves to pin earrings, Affinity carries pieces from brands such as Anatometal, Neometal, and Body Vision Los Angeles.
In Focus: Electric 13 Tattoo
Location: University of Texas, The Drag
Tattoo styles: The artists can create a custom piece in almost any style, from American traditional to Japanese to tiny, delicate tattoos.
What if you need some inspiration?: Look at the mix of original artwork and flash tattoos on the walls.
The atmosphere: brightly lit shop with hardwood floors and a touch of the macabre in the form of skeleton dolls and masks
What’s not allowed here?: drunk people; cell-phone photography
