The team at Black Rose Tattooers is on a roll. In 2012, they received their third consecutive Best Tattoo Parlor award from Tuscon Weekly. Over the years, the magazine has had a lot to say about the trio of shops, calling the artists “masters of their craft” and admiring how “skill is apparent in every design, whether the tattoo is a realistic portrait…or a custom sleeve”. Though the tattooers love to accept custom projects, the street-style shops also welcome passersby for impromptu ink sessions. In case clients are too excited about their fresh ink to pay attention to the staff's post-tattooing guidelines, the company's website has a page with tips for tattoo aftercare.
When not hunched over their buzzing tattoo tools, Black Rose’s team also performs face and body piercings, even surgically implanting tongs to improve grilling abilities. They take this work rather seriously as well—each year, the crew attends the Association of Professional Piercers Conference in Las Vegas. Two of the staffers even have their own jewelry line, Honeycomb Organics, a collection of one-of-a-kind wood, stone, silver, and copper baubles that ranges from traditional rings and necklaces to large-gauge body jewelry.
At K42 Tattoos, a team of dedicated and experienced tattoo artists practice their craft through inking, piercing, and permanent makeup. Each artist brings years of experience and well-honed specialization to the tattoo table, from expertise in producing photorealistic designs to stunning color compositions.
Diamond Body Art’s tattoo artists adorn bodies with tattoos done in a variety of styles. Alfonso specializes in realistic portraits done in black and gray. He can make anything look real, including a horror tattoo of Frankenstein’s monster or of a demon leaving the bathroom without washing his hands. Whether he’s creating a realistic bird or a cartoon character such as Mini Mouse, Dominic infuses the skin with bold colors. And Michael focuses on drawing clean lines when crafting Polynesian or Japanese-style tattoos.
At Inkaholics Anonymous a staff of highly skilled, friendly, and creative tattoo artists decorate bodies with everything from permanent eye to lip makeup in sterile and disposable shop. Permanent make-up artists have more than 25 years of combined experience as well as being certified Intradermal Cosmetic Technicians. Piercing specialists safely install earrings and body jewelry from a wide range of styles and designs, while tattoo aftercare tips help clients heal their skin and protect their ink for years to come.
