When the parents of Bulldog Tattoo SF's artist told him to wait until he was 18 until he got another tattoo—they found out he had been lying about his age and getting inked since he was 14—there's a chance they thought he'd grow out of it. More than 20 years later, that's clearly not the case; his passion for the inked arts grew so vast that he found his way to the other end of the needle. Inside of his clean and sterilized parlor, the artist doles out a wide range of tattoo styles—from his favored traditional tribal artwork from exotic locales such as Borneo, French Polynesia, and the basement at Macy's to celtic knots and colored portraits. His versatility and skill, which can be viewed in his portfolio, can meet many requests, from black and gray designs to heavily colored artwork.

Dr. Jeffrey DeWeese wanted to be a physician when he was just 12 years old, but it wasn't until an emergency-room rotation that he decided to be a plastic surgeon. After watching a colleague reconstruct a young girl's injured face, Dr. DeWeese resolved to dedicate himself to a specialty that combines artistic vision with technical proficiency to improve patients? quality of life. Now with board certification and more than 17 years of surgical experience, he still relies on this combination of skills, spending ample time with patients beforehand and working with them to select an appropriate treatment regimen.
Surgical procedures comprise a healthy portion of the center's services, but the staff also bolsters confidence, tones and shapes silhouettes, and counteracts aging with less invasive alternatives. Custom facial treatments, for instance, incorporate everything from anti-inflammatory enzymes that conceal signs of acne to soothing masks that leave skin as hydrated as a sponge in a bucket of Gatorade. Microdermabrasion sessions and dermal fillers improve skin tone, whereas a therapeutic massage combines Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressure, and reflexology techniques to address individual aches.
Burrowed among such historical downtown sights as Union Square and the Chinatown gates, Moth and Dagger Tattoo Studio leaves its own permanent mark on San Francisco by outfitting the city's residents with custom tattoos. Well-rounded inksmiths Mario Delgado, Justin Davis, and Joe Kelly run the shop, and all are trained in their own unique styles. Mario specializes in realism, sprawling familiar images across limbs and buzzing them to life in full color or black and gray. Justin represents a more familiar approach with traditional American and Japanese designs. Joe's specialty is pointillism or stippling–creating intricate images out of thousands of little dots. When they're not sketching new images, the trio is fixing or covering up old tattoos, allowing clients to finally have the confidence to leave the house naked.
