Valhalla Modifications, the only full-service, professional tattoo and piercing studio in town, has expanded and moved their to 612 S. Beeline Highway, Ste. A.
"It's a very big city shop at this point," said co-owner, Visa Norman. "This is our vision of what a tattoo and piercing studio should be."
Norman who specializes in full-body piercings, tattoos and permanent makeup, and her husband, Wes, also a tattoo artist, said their new 1,500-square-foot location is equipped with a state-of-the-art, self-contained sterilization room. Other improvements include a private piercing room, an expanded jewelry selection, and a larger waiting room.
The Normans take great pride in the cleanliness of their facilities, the quality of their work, and most of all, their code of ethics. They provide extensive aftercare instructions and impose strict minor consent guidelines on underage teens seeking tattoos and piercing.
The Normans are members of the Alliance of Professional Tattooists, which works with legislators and its own members to promote safety, health and education. Visa, a licensed cosmetologist, also serves on the Permanent Make Up Society of Arizona's board as publicity director.
In December, Valhalla Modifications is offering 5 percent off jewelry with a body piercing and 10 percent off any tattoo. They take all major credit cards except American Express and gift certificates are available.
