|We use skin candy ink, no acrylic or lead base...rose water is the main
vehicle....sterile single use needles. We have over 3000-4000 pieces of
flash on the walls and over 20 books to look at for ideas...along with their
talent for custom drawn art..and you can bring your own design...if need
be, John or Lady Em can fine tune it.
"A work of art is always going to be a work of art, but a piece
of crap is always going to be a piece of crap."
Also in advising in placement and choice of tattoo...John says..."pick
something that you will never be ashamed of wearing....because
sometimes the only thing you will be wearing is "your tattoo". John
is an artist not just a tattooist...Lady Em have joined us...this year
2011...they also can free-hand on a blank piece of paper...again we
have artists--not just "flash art" tattooists....
Marie offers her skills as a licensed practical nurse, EMT and full
body piercer to the business. She says, "Just because a body walks into
the door and has the body part to pierce, doesn"t always mean the
part is pierceable." Full body piercing is offered...as long "as it does
not disrupt bodily function", Marie is usually game...dermal anchors
were recently legally authorized to do here in Grand Traverse
County...we offer those too..
With both owners...much thought and concern is put in to caring for
their customers, from the moment they walk in the doors till? ....like
Marie says...."just cause you walk out the door, doesn't mean we're
done with you..call if you have any questions.
You can always count on Marie to tell you..."until this is
healed..keep your dirty hands off"...
