What’s in the future for your skin?
Tattoos, piercings, laser hair removal…or how about dermals and microblading? There’s a menu of options and special prices at the reputable Future Skin Tattoo & Body Piercing Parlor. The popular shop sits on the corner of 198 Rideau and Waller streets surrounded by floor to ceiling windows that display the hustle and bustle of Downtown Rideau. A nice distraction if you plan to sit in the chair next time you get inked!
Over the years, the owner Julie Beaule has admired new changes in the district and can always appreciate the vintage aspects as well. “15 years were spent at the old location at 215 Rideau Street, and a lot of great memories made.” But out with the old and in with the new; exciting plans are coming to fruition, as right across the street from where they are currently located is a new hotel and condo development coming soon! “So many changes with new condos, new LRT train and colorful new FX poles. It is all looking beautiful against old buildings and churches.”
In the past, Julie worked hard in the tattoo supplies distribution. She didn’t necessarily foresee paving a path in this business, as she says she “randomly got started in 1993” which led to acquiring Future Skin from the previous owner.
What keeps her inspired is the beautiful artwork created by her tattoo artists, and the fantastic clients that walk through her door. “Best Day for me would be everyday. Clients are an everyday joy! Our ideal customers are grateful clients that appreciate our hard work and care for them.”
Despite the circumstances of everyone’s least favourite ‘C’ word (COVID)…Future Skin was able to open up again in Phase II and it was back to business as usual. Julie and staff have done a fantastic job with following health and safety protocols, wearing face shields and masks, having sanitizer stations setup, taking temperature upon arrival, and other PPE. They take cleanliness very seriously.
As a bonus, tattoo aftercare soap and cream are given to Military, Police, Firefighters and Diplomats to thank them for their service and we as well do donations each year. “We truly appreciate, and are thankful for their service.”
There have been some pretty intricate tattoo designs over the years, but out of all of them, one that really stands out in the memory bank is “a long time ago when the Bear radio station client got the bear tattoo!” Talk about loving your job!
It is certain Julie loves her job too, but doesn’t need her logo tattooed to prove it. She already has a full sleeve. “Several Japanese tattoos and in Memory of my parents that passed away over 20 years ago I have their portrait. I love piercings and have a full ear and several more…”
