While choosing a tattoo or piercing you won’t regret is no easy task, choosing a studio to get that tattoo or piercing can be even more difficult. However, ISU students know exactly where to go: Graphic Flesh.
For the second consecutive year, Graphic Flesh was voted the Best Tattoo/Piercing Studio in Bloomington-Normal.
“I’m extremely proud and thankful for all the support in town and on campus. We really try to keep our standards very high and treat our customers with so much respect. That’s always been our number one goal,” Alysha Franco, Graphic Flesh owner, said.
According to Franco, students prefer Graphic Flesh over other local tattoo and piercing studios because of the amount of customer service and artwork its artists and piercers provide.
“We really try to keep our studio top quality and provide the best experience. You really get the whole package here,” she said.
Graphic Flesh will soon have “amazing” tattoo and piercing specials in celebration of the studio’s eighth year in business, Franco added.
Artkore Tattoos came in second, and while owner Steve McClintock is grateful to have been voted for the category at all, he strongly believes his studio should have placed first.
“I think that people need to go online and compare our competitors’ tattoos to the work that we do at Artkore and make their own decision based on that. At Artkore Tattoos, you’re going to spend a little bit more money, but you’re going to get what you pay for in the final work,” McClintock said.
