Look around you. Tattoos are no longer the property of bikers and sailors. Even if you’re not keen on ink, there are dramatic and expressive ways to define your look. From repairing sun damage and a tweak of the nose to piercings, skin implants and face-lifts, why settle for what Mother Nature gave you?

Yes, Hall of Tattoos does tattoos, but it’s also a great place to get holes punched in you. Specialists Brian Udegraff and Derek Vosten are more than happy to add another ring just about anywhere, and rumor has it they’re so fast you won’t even know it until after it’s done.

Laser Light Skin Clinic

6442 Avondale Drive 841-0500

Perhaps you’re looking for the opposite of the skin you’re in. Perhaps you have too much fun in the sun (and your dermis shows it) or you have more candles on your birthday cake than you’re comfortable with. Victoria Johnson and her staff have myriad ways, both invasive and noninvasive, to get your skin to tell the story you want.

Museart Tattoo Co.

1206 N. Pennsylvania Ave. marcusmuse.com 601-9669

Although his shop was established in 2013, Marcus Muse’s experience goes far beyond his brick-and-mortar opening date. He got his start as a nomad tattooist, advertising by word-of-mouth in the days of ink prohibition. Any artists who work in a studio have a specialty, and the artists at Muse showcase portraiture, black-and-gray and new traditional styles. Visit the website for samples of Muse’s work.

15th Street Tattoo Gallery

416 W. 15th St., Edmond 15thst-tattoo.com 513-8886

There was a time when saying you owned a tattoo shop in Edmond sounded like a joke. Not anymore. 15th Street gives incredible ink and is dedicated to learning changing trends while it produces custom, beautiful work. The shop prefers appointments, but it also takes walk-ins for those of you who are feeling lucky and just have to have that tat right now.
