Best Tattoo Parlor 

Evermore Gallery

They say the clothes make the man. If that adage holds true, then the tattoo artists make the, er, tattoo parlor. That's what makes Evermore Gallery in Edwardsville worth the trek east. Carrie Davini's work is sharp, full of eye-popping colors that look straight out of a vibrant comic book, while Chris Quidgeon's ability to render lifelike faces and precise script belies his attention to detail. But just as important as artistry — at least to those with low pain thresholds and a fear of ink fading or spreading — is how Evermore makes newbies feel confident in their tattoo choices. There are no secrets or surprises to their craft: While the prospective tattooed can schedule a consultation visit with a particular artist — or even fax in ideas for an opinion — Evermore's MySpace page ( contains extensive galleries that demonstrate clearly who would be best for your foray into body art. Heck, even a quick call to the gallery yields a friendly, informed opinion. Open from noon to 9 p.m. every day but Sunday, Evermore makes getting inked a less-than-painful experience.
