Nestled in an expanse of urban sprawl just north of the airport is Kreepy Tiki Tattoos, a high-end tattoo parlor that is reminiscent of a turn of the century swanky island paradise. It's decked from top to bottom with retro tiki mugs, candlelit shrines, and vintage furniture and the buzz of modern electric tattooing is heard over nostalgic bluesy jams.
