Apart from a brief, six-year hiatus, East Side Ink has been steadily drawing on people since before it was legal in this city. Along with sister shop Graceland, East Side's artists sling some of the most masterful, inventive custom ink in town. As consummate professionals, they'd probably draw a boring piece of flash if you asked, but you'd be wasting a visit. Much of the East Side and Graceland staffs have extensive artistic training, and gorgeous, one-of-a-kind work is what they do best. If you have a few regrets on your hide, East Side also has laser tattoo removal, and both shops do excellent cover-up work. At Graceland, you can also get your hair did, if you'd like to fit some ombré tips and a back piece into one day.
