For neurotic patrons hoping for something they can be permanently proud of, the girl gang at Minneapolis Tattoo Shop is like a team of registered tattoo nurses. Surgical sanitation and a sweet bedside manner are what set this shop apart. Portfolios show precise lines, expertly practiced shading, and a watercolor tat technique by owner Nikki Martin. This one-stop body mod shop also does piercing of any grade — tricky inner ears, dermals, nipples, and genitals. Prices are standard for any tattoo shop that takes itself seriously.
