Best Tattoo/Piercing Parlor: In the Skin

Best Tattoo/Piercing Parlor: In the Skin

The Austins began a "mom and pop" tattoo shop with the goal of providing excellent customer service.

It's no wonder it has won best tattoo and piercing parlor this year.

"We do tattoos and piercings, and the client's desires are what's important," said Tom Austin, co-owner of In the Skin. "You've heard the old adage 'people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.' I think the big thing is that any time people get tattoos or piercing there has to be an element of trust."

Austin said in an industry where the tattoo artists often put their egos ahead of the customers' wishes, In The Skin goes the extra mile to show their care for the customers.
