Best Tattoo Parlor: In the Skin

In the Skin has been named Best of the Best Tattoo parlor for the fourth consecutive year. In addition to tattoo and piercing, the shop offers retail jewelry, body jewelry and after care products.

A change in ownership did not mean a change in excellence at In the Skin Tattoo & Piercing.

Shelby and Duane Kuchler took over the shop in April from founders Gayle and Tom Austin, continuing the first-class service provided to its customers.

In the Skin has been named Best of the Best Tattoo parlor for the fourth consecutive year.

"We started out as customers, too," Shelby said. "We share Gayle and Tom's philosophy about the quality of the work and the atmosphere it is done in. We tried to keep it seamless. We have the same expectations they had."

Three independent contractor tattoo artists and two piercers staff In the Skin.

In addition to tattoos and piercings, the shop offers retail jewelry, body jewelry, after care products and T-shirts and caps with the In the Skin logo.
