Hair ‘N Tattoos

Maybe it’s the squeeze everyone is feeling these days, but I’ve just read about a second example of two small businesses combing into one business establishment.  I admit – the first was in a book I was reading.  The union brought on by friendship and a need for a job by all three friends.  One third of an old house a book store, one third an art gallery, and one third a retro beauty shop.  Then I read a similar story but it’s non-fiction and it was a marriage of a beauty shop and a tattoo parlor located in Brooklyn called Glamour Garage.  The person responsible is Rebecca Faye the owner of Hello Beautiful Hair Salon.  She loves tattoos and sports quite a few in addition to her sexy staff.  Visit her site and show support for her business if you live in the Brooklyn area.

Rebecca feels the two worlds are similar – each is used as a way to sport your individuality.   Letting your freak flag fly if you will.  Outstanding idea.  I would guess that people that may have been hesitating before making the big move to WALK into a real tattoo parlor will find this type of transition easier.

I opened my first tattoo studio in 1986.
It was a combo Tattoo + Hairstyling + Photography studio.
I had to ditch the styling after less than a year.
I again tried combining them in 1993 by having them as t semi seperate things sharing the same fron lobby.
It worked fine.
Closed that shop in 03 to travel.

I currently am employed as a tattooist at a spa, salon, piercing, retail place.
