Default Paradise Piercings and Tattoos



Located smack in the middle of Diagon Alley’s North Side, Paradise Piercings & Tattoos is the place to be if you're in need of some ink, a little bit of bling, or just a taste of paradise! The shop’s theme is evident just from the exterior. A brightly painted wooden sign in the shape of a toucan hangs over the door, bearing the shop’s name. The large glass window to the right of the door boasts a display of t-shirts, hats, and other merchandise against a backdrop of tattoo designs. Every so often, a sign announcing a sale will be placed in the window.

Soothing wind chimes hung over the door sound as customers walk inside. The left wall is covered by a mural of a relaxing island scene, painted by former shopkeeper Dory Dane; this side of the shop houses the lounge area. A long sofa and a few tasteful armchairs line the wall, and several plastic baobab and gum acacia flowers complete the atmosphere. Customers relaxing in the lounge are invited to enjoy a tropical fruit-flavored soda or juice from the soda machine near the back of the shop for only a sickle; one more sickle buys a song from the adjacent jukebox. The right wall is painted a warm sandy brown color to complement the mural and lined with shelves bearing hats, bags, and apparel in a rainbow of colors, all charmed to fit people of all shapes and sizes. Near the shelves are two revolving racks stocked with an assortment of colorful jewelry. The more expensive jewelry pieces are housed in a glass case between the racks. Don't even think about stealing! All merchandise is equiped with a caterwauling charm, lest anyone get any ideas!

The tattoo parlor is behind a marked door at the back of the shop. Customers purchasing a tattoo or piercing will be greeted by tropical music and a calming oceanscape mural upon entering. In the middle of the room is an elevated chair for the customers and a smaller swivel chair for the shopkeeper; all supplies for tattooing and piercings are kept in a tall rolling cart at the far side of the parlor. Next to the tattoo parlor door is a sleek mahogany counter. Sitting atop the counter is a simple cash register, bell, and a book of tattoo designs courtesy of shopkeeper Vitani Kama. Along the wall behind the counter hangs a collection of masks owned by the current shopkeeper. Please note that the masks are decorations only and are NOT for sale. If you don’t see the shopkeeper out and about, push the bell, and she’ll be with you soon!

She had been talking about it for a couple of years now, and since she was graduated and halfway to being eighteen, Aboli Song was getting her first tattoo. The first of many, but you had to start somewhere. She had it sketched out, planned out, all ready to go.

And yes, she had come alone. Aboli had not wanted company on this adventure. Noah would have come...Alexandre, Redhead!Noah might have....Royse...but no. She wanted to do this herself and experience it herself.

The chimes tinkled lightly as she stepped into the shop, her nerves on fire as her anxious tummy rollllllled. She made her way to the back of the shop, about ten minutes early for her appointment. Aboli had NOT just walked in here, no. Poor planning? Nah. Aboli was prepared. The bell said to ring it if the shopkeep wasn't nearby, but the former Slytherin did not want to do that quite yet...what if the tattoo artist was nearby? She didn't want to that customer.

As promised, Claudine had taken the time to have a girls’ day with Ashley. She had made sure to schedule the date on a day when she happened to be off from her summer job. Honestly, she felt as though it was now that her life was coming together again after all the commotion at Hogwarts. Claudine wasn’t about to spoil what was going to be an exciting day with depressing thoughts, however. Merlin knew both girls deserved some fun.

The wind chimes jingled when the older girl pushed the door open. Wind chimes made such pleasant sounds. Maybe she ought to get herself one at some point in life. Maybe her future house would have a few. Yes. The latter sounded like a great idea.

“What do you think? Want to get your future tattoo here?’’ Sure, Claudine knew it might be too early for Ashley to decide but a good first impression of this warm, cosy and inviting parlour would surely help. Right?

Ash was sooooo excited. Claudine(totally her older sister in her mind, though she would never admit it) had NOT EVEN LIED. Like, they were actually here and everything. It was the most amazing thing ever. Imagine someone actually keeping their word when they say that they are gonna make it all okay again. Like, WHAT. Crazy. "Oooo Claudine, looook. They have like, an island or whatever over there. How is it so relaxing in here? Look at all these cool tattoo designs!" This was paradise. It LOOKED like paradise, there were TATTOOS (the ultimate form of art), and it was just, um, PERFECT AND STUFF. Crazy. Sooooo cool. Cue excited Ashley faces. Not mopey Ashley, not grumpy Ashley, not miserable Ashley, EXCITED ASHLEY. "Woahhhhh. Hmmm yeah, I'd love to get at least one of my tattoos here." Cause LOOK. THE RELAXATION. "Did I already say thanks for bringing me here? Can I say it again?" This was like a good birthday! Not a mirror birthday. A good birthday! "Soooo cool." Yayyyy. Best day ever! And they just walked in. But it was still the best! Okay? Okay. "hahahahaha, I have sooo much inspiration from walking in here." She giggled 'evilly'. hehehe. So much inspiration for drawing. And actual tattoos. This was the best best best day of the summer. Except for the other best days, but today was the super best day. Nothing could possibly ruin this. Ever.

Of course Claudine hadn’t lied, or even thought of calling off this date. Surprisingly, she had become very fond of Ashley and for that reason, they were going to do all the fun things today. Even so, the older girl had absolutely no idea how much her keeping her word meant to Ashley. What she did have an idea about, however, was that she had been right to suggest that they visit the Tattoo Parlour. Just look at how excited Ashley was!

Why did Claudine have a warm, fuzzy feeling in her heart now?

This was one of those extremely rare moments where she’d seen the Ravenclaw super happy. Claudine was actually laughing quietly as she watched Ashley go bonkers. “I’d like to think that it’s the set up of the shop. It’s not dank and dreary at all.’’ Like The Room they’d been confined to during the previous school term. Claudine herself gravitated towards the mural of the left wall. Of course it should grab her attention. “You’re welcome.’’ The soon-to-be-sixth year grinned. “While you can’t have any tattoos, you can choose a piece of jewelry. Or a hat. Whichever you want. It’s my treat.”

Oh. Inspiration was always a great thing! It could always strike when one least expected it. Was that the reason for Ashley’s weird laugh? “I’m interested here. Care to share your new ideas?’

"You're right, Claudine. This is far from an austere environment. I love the vibes in here." Ash grinned. She was like 80% sure that austere was an inapplicable word here. Which was good. Austere = The Room = very bad.

Wait? Was Claudine actually saying she was going to buy her something? But that wasn't fair! Ash was probably richer than she was. But you weren't supposed to say no to presents if it would make someone feel better to give you one, sooo... Ash picked out a single silver-colored earring that she liked. They were not too expensive. Only a galleon or two. "Now I can be a pirate with my one earring. It'll make me look way cool." Totally fitted with the temporary tattoo and the wrist holster and the leather jacket. Yeah, Ash was going for a very specific look here. "I like that phoenix tattoo over there. I'm gonna paint one." And she was gonna get a real one like that. She didn't realize that phoenixes looked GREAT in gray colors. "And I like those flowers. And those dragons. And also literally everything else." asdfghjk whaaaat this was AWESOME. "I love this place." Claudine was officially the best best best. The greatest of forever time. The awesomeness level of her other 5 favorite people: her boyfriend, her brother, Eden... actually, those last two spots were pretty hard to decide. Basically, Claudine was equally as awesome as every friend ever. She was the best! That was just the truth.

Vitani was in the back room of the shop hard at work painting a sign. So far, she’d been at it for over an hour and had just finished the first word, but if it took her hours to finish, so be it. The woman was nothing if not a perfectionist! As she worked, she heard the faint tinkle of the wind chimes, announcing that someone had just walked through the shop door. Setting her paintbrush aside, she checked her watch. Almost time for her next appointment…

After taking a quick moment to clean her brush and remove her apron, Vitani emerged from the back room to find a young woman waiting, “Hello and welcome to Paradise,” she greeted, moving behind the counter where she kept her date book, and she took a quick peek to check the name. Miss Song?”

SPOILER!!: Claudine & Ashley

Much later, Vitani finally finished painting her sign. With a quick flick of her wand, she made the paint flash in different colors, and she was done. The completed product read: VICTORY SALE ½ OFF ALL DIY KITS. She stepped back, wiping her hands on her apron, and took a quick moment to scrutinize her work for any minor flaws. When she saw none, she beamed with pride, pride in her painting and in the sale itself. She knew from experience how healing art could be, and the wizarding community would need all the healing it could get now! She was honored to provide that in any way she could.

As she was cleaning up, she heard the chimes tinkle, followed by two voices. Carefully carrying her freshly painted sign, she spotted the two Hogwarts-age girls as she walked into the shop area. “Hello, ladies,” she greeted. “Welcome to Paradise! Can I help you find anything today?” As she awaited their answer, she made her way to the window display to hang the sign. “We have a 50% off sale on all DIY kits.”

Abol drummed her fingers against the counter as she waited, patiently, and smiled when the woman appeared. The smile did not quite reach her eyes, but she did her best to look okay these days.

"Yes, ma'am," she said gently. "That's me." She was soooos os sosososoos eager to get started, and she tucked some of her blonde-but-brown-roots-showing hair behind her ears.

Can I help you find anything today?” As she awaited their answer, she made her way to the window display to hang the sign. “We have a 50% off sale on all DIY kits.”


Claudine could not agree more as she knew instinctively that Ashley was referring to The Room. Darn that Room. She hated it then and always would and could not wait for the memories of it to fade. One way to help with that was by creating new, happy memories. Or so she hoped.

Ha. If Ashley only knew that up until last summer Claudine lived in a mansion. The Blaze Mansion on the outskirts of London to be precise so she was quite rich and all. Well, she had been but since the girl was keen on distancing herself from her family after the entire fiasco/battle at Hogwarts. All she had to her name now were some galleons and her summer job which she had taken up to help add to her savings. Yes, there was a vault at Gringotts in her name but since she wasn’t of age, she was sure that by the time her family caught on that she didn’t intend to return home, they would empty it.

The sixteen year old approved of Ashley’s choice and she said so. “You’d make the coolest pirate ever,’’ came an enthusiastic reply. Then she was laughing. “Seems as though you like everything.’’ Which wasn’t a bad thing, you know. “Some day, you’ll have to create a tattoo for me. I mean, I’m not looking for a real one but a temporary one would be very neat. And maybe someday you’ll have your own tattoo parlour.” Since Ashley loved it so much here, Claudine wouldn’t be surprised if the other girl decided to open a parlour or maybe even take over this one. All she knew was that she was glad to see Ashley enjoying herself so much. The Ravenclaw had come a long way from being the sad girl from last term.

Hmmm.

She’d better select something for herself. But what did she want? Maybe the shopkeeper would help? Ohh. DIY Kits. “Thank you for the welcome. That discount sounds like a bargain.’’ Claudine shifted her attention to the kits. The bracelet kits were very particularly interesting to her. “By the way, my friend here loves your shop a lot.”

Setting her paintbrush aside, she checked her watch. Almost time for her next appointment…

After taking a quick moment to clean her brush and remove her apron, Vitani emerged from the back room to find a young woman waiting, “Hello and welcome to Paradise,” she greeted, moving behind the counter where she kept her date book, and she took a quick peek to check the name. Miss Song?”

SPOILER!!: Claudine & Ashley








Much later, Vitani finally finished painting her sign. With a quick flick of her wand, she made the paint flash in different colors, and she was done. The completed product read: VICTORY SALE ½ OFF ALL DIY KITS. She stepped back, wiping her hands on her apron, and took a quick moment to scrutinize her work for any minor flaws. When she saw none, she beamed with pride, pride in her painting and in the sale itself. She knew from experience how healing art could be, and the wizarding community would need all the healing it could get now! She was honored to provide that in any way she could.

As she was cleaning up, she heard the chimes tinkle, followed by two voices. Carefully carrying her freshly painted sign, she spotted the two Hogwarts-age girls as she walked into the shop area. “Hello, ladies,” she greeted. “Welcome to Paradise!

"And a stylish pirate. And I would walk into a room, and people would just be like Wow. She's so cool and awesome." Yes, Ash dreamed of being a inspiring and sparkly chandelier in a room full of normal people. And this tattoo shop was way boosting her happiness right now. "I do love everything! And I would totally design the way coolest fake tattoo ever." She would. Truth.

Ooooh, the person in charge here. Ash gave Vitani major puppy eyes. Or heart eyes. You get the point. This place was awesome. "I love it allll!" She beamed. This. Was. Paradise. Yayyyyy. Ash was in like the happiest dream ever, and she did NOT want to wake up.

You know what?

Claudine agreed that Ashley would make the coolest pirate ever. Whereas the younger girl wanted to be the center of attention, Claudine could never see herself wanting that. She hated to be in the spotlight and didn’t like attention on her. Well, except Heath’s. “There are Halloween parties at Hogwarts at times. Maybe you can dress as a pirate at some point.’’

Claudine chuckled as she watched Ashley interact with the shopkeeper. “Better watch out there, Miss, or else someday Ashley’s going to take over the business.” That wouldn’t be a bad thing though. “Hey, Ashley. I’m thinking of getting a DIY bracelet kit. Want to help me make a few bracelets later on?”

Vitani returned the younger woman’s smile with a slight one of her own, though she couldn’t help but notice that the smile didn’t reach her eyes. She didn’t think much of it. After all, it was her job to provide body art, not pry into her clients’ lives. “You’re right on time,” she replied. Well, technically a few minutes early, but she’d much rather have an early client than a late one. Time is money, you know.

Aiming her wand, Vitani unlocked the door to the tattoo parlor with a spell and held the door open for the other woman. “This way, please,” she said. “Have a seat in the big chair.” As she waited for her client to get situated, she crossed the room to the supply cart and began taking careful inventory of her supplies. “What sort of tattoo are we doing today?”

As Vitani adjusted the sign in the window display, she overheard bits of the two girls’ conversation, and a small smile formed on her face. Her smile grew as the older girl (Claudine) spoke to her. Such a polite girl! Finally satisfied with the sign’s position, she turned away from the window. “Thank you,” she replied, her eyes following the girl to the DIY kits. “I have more kits in the back if you don’t see what you want.”

Which reminded her, she needed to unpack the boxes of kits and arrange them in a tasteful display. Maybe in a pyramid shape? Never mind… she could do that later when she didn’t have customers to help.

Vitani had to appreciate the younger girl’s (Ashley) enthusiasm. That enthusiasm earned her a beam in return (and the puppy dog eyes helped too). This girl had excellent taste! She even reminded Vitani a bit of herself at that age. “I’m glad you approve,” she said with a slight smile. Her eyes darted from the younger girl to the shelf full of DIY kits, and an idea occurred to her. “Might I interest you in a design-your-own tattoo kit?” With a wave of her wand, she summoned a box off the shelf. “This kit has everything you need to make five temporary tattoos.”

The other girl’s words got a slight smirk from Vitani. “Maybe someday,” she mused, imagining the younger girl- Ashley - running her shop. She didn’t expect to leave Paradise any time soon - at least not unless her lagging art career made a sudden comeback - but she could think of much worse people to hand over her shop to… like her lying ex-husband. Or that lazy former student of hers.

"Yeah. And I'll have my own ship. And I'll walk around looking cool, smart, pretty, and generally just awesome." Ash smiled. She could picture it. What a great dream.

"Sure. Bracelets are cool." People sent messages in bracelets. Maybe she should. Then people would able to tell how she was feeling based on the bracelets, and not ask her irritating questions about if she was okay and if she had gone to therapy and if she was happy. "Bracelets are cool."

But Ash was already distracted. Because the shopkeeper was handing her a temporary tattoo kit! Mwahahaha. "Yep, I'm so getting this." She was gonna give her brother one. And her boyfriend. And a few other people. Hehehe. She could MAKE her own tattoos. Hehehe. She looked at the box with eyes of literal love. Then she looked at Claudine. Then Vitani. Then back at the box. Best. Day. EVER.

Aboli nodded, not really responding as she ducked inside the actual tattoo parlor.

And man....

It was beautiful. Her mind raced, thinking to all of the photographs she had of her biological father. When she was younger, she could remember him so clearly, but now...she only remembered him if she had a vivid dream where he was present. But right now, seeing a parlor in all its glory, she was reminded of him, of her desire to be covered in tattoos one day. Why did she want to be like him at all, and why in this way alone? She could see the appeal of it, though, and she shivered slightly at the temperature.

"OH. Right. Something simple for my first one..." she said softly as she sat in the chair. "The same design we had discussed when I made the appointment. This one." She held up the picture of the snake and pointed at the spot above her wrist. "Here."

Claudine could picture it too: Ashley being the cool pirate and all. They just needed to get her a parrot to wear on her shoulder. Maybe it could even be animated to squawk out a few phrases. Claudine blinked. Just look at her, planning Ashley’s costume for Halloween. The older girl had certainly changed, hasn’t she? A year ago, it wasn’t something that she’d dream of doing, yet here we were.

“Bracelets are cool,’’ Claudine agreed. Now she and Ashley had something else to occupy their time for a bit. Oh! There were more kits? That made sense. “Do you think I can see a few more?” A bit extra to choose form wouldn’t be a bad thing. She said nothing else for now for the younger girl was completely distracted. The good kind of distraction, that is. Merlin knew Ashley needed it after all that calamity at Hogwarts. Grinning a bit, she watched the girl get excited all over the temporary tattoo kit.

“Bracelets are cool,’’ Claudine agreed. Now she and Ashley had something else to occupy their time for a bit. Oh! There were more kits?

The good kind of distraction, that is. Merlin knew Ashley needed it after all that calamity at Hogwarts. Grinning a bit, she watched the girl get excited all over the temporary tattoo kit.



Vitani beamed. Somehow she had a feeling this young lady (Ashley) would like a tattoo kit! “You’ll have to save one of your designs to show me,” she said. “If I like what I see, I just might pay you a commission to use your design in my shop.” And no, that was not a false promise. Vitani Kama had no time for dishonesty! Her years spent in this tattoo shop reminded her how much she enjoyed giving back to the community, so she was willing to help out young artists - young artist who were willing to work for their successes, unlike the former student who betrayed her - and she could tell by this one’s enthusiasm that she would put in the work.

Her head turned as the older girl (Claudine) spoke to her, and she nodded, “Yes, of course,” she replied. That question reminded her she still needed to unpack and display the boxes of kits she had in the back room, so she decided to kill two fwoopers with one stone, so to speak. With a wave of her wand, she summoned three boxes from the back room; they landed at her feet with a soft thump. “If you like designing jewelry, we also have an earring kit and a necklace one,” she said, opening the middle box and setting aside one of each kit. “Then we have the temporary tattoo kit like your friend has -” She opened the box on the left and produced another temporary tattoo kit.

Opening the box on the right, she added, “And we also have DIY apparel kits for hats, bags, and t-shirts.” She picked up one of each apparel kit and set it aside. While she waited for the girl to make up her mind, she began to carefully arrange the kits in the boxes in a pyramid shape near the front of the store, starting with the apparel kits on the bottom.

Unable to see into her mind and know what she was really thinking, she thought the young lady was simply entranced by the oceanscape mural. She could understand why. While it wasn’t her personal art style, it was beautifully done… which was why she chose to keep it when she took over the shop. She hadn’t the heart to erase another artist’s hard work!

“Of course,” she replied, nodding. She recalled the design they had discussed before, even before Miss Song handed her the sketch, but she had to ask. Clients changed their mind all the time! “I take it simple means a plain tattoo with no magical effects? And your color preferences - are they the same ones used in this sketch?” Vitani knew the questions could be tiresome, but she needed to know exactly what the client wanted before she began.

Vitani beamed. Somehow she had a feeling this young lady (Ashley) would like a tattoo kit! “You’ll have to save one of your designs to show me,” she said. “If I like what I see, I just might pay you a commission to use your design in my shop.” And no, that was not a false promise. Vitani Kama had no time for dishonesty! Her years spent in this tattoo shop reminded her how much she enjoyed giving back to the community, so she was willing to help out young artists - young artist who were willing to work for their successes, unlike the former student who betrayed her - and she could tell by this one’s enthusiasm that she would put in the work.

Her head turned as the older girl (Claudine) spoke to her, and she nodded, “Yes, of course,” she replied. That question reminded her she still needed to unpack and display the boxes of kits she had in the back room, so she decided to kill two fwoopers with one stone, so to speak. With a wave of her wand, she summoned three boxes from the back room; they landed at her feet with a soft thump. “If you like designing jewelry, we also have an earring kit and a necklace one,” she said, opening the middle box and setting aside one of each kit. “Then we have the temporary tattoo kit like your friend has -” She opened the box on the left and produced another temporary tattoo kit.

Opening the box on the right, she added, “And we also have DIY apparel kits for hats, bags, and t-shirts.” She picked up one of each apparel kit and set it aside. While she waited for the girl to make up her mind, she began to carefully arrange the kits in the boxes in a pyramid shape near the front of the store, starting with the apparel kits on the bottom.



As Vitani arranged her supplies on the cart, she glanced back at her client.

It seemed as though Ashley was on her way to living her best life. When Claudine had brought her here to the shop, she hadn’t expected things to go so well and now it seemed that the younger girl might actually be able to earn some cash. Claudine felt warm and happy. Ashley truly deserved this.

Happily Claudine watched a new set of boxes arrive. Goodness! Who knew that there were so many types of DIY kits. One which for certain that would be of no use to her was the necklace kit. Absently, the girl reached up a finger to touch the necklace around her neck which Heath had given her. But the tee shirt kits? Those appealed to her and quickly Claudine had her mind made up. “I’ll have the tee shirt and bracelet kits. Oh, and Ashley will have that pirate earring and tattoo kit. I think that’s it.’’ Claudine was already reaching for her money to pay up but first, she’d need the total.

I think that’s it.’’ Claudine was already reaching for her money to pay up but first, she’d need the total.


Vitani continued arranging the kits from the boxes while she waited for the older girl (Claudine) to make up her mind. She had finished making a base out of the apparel kits and was midway through the next level of the pyramid-shaped display, which consisted of jewelry kits, when the girl spoke. She smiled, nodding approvingly. "Excellent choice," she said, picking up a t-shirt kit and a bracelet one. "The bracelet kit makes four bracelets; the t-shirt one makes a single shirt charmed to fit anyone. And if you don't like the color it comes in, there are stickers you can use to change it. Place the sticker in the color of your choice anywhere on the shirt, and it will turn that color." She'd developed that feature so underage wizards could change the color of the shirt without an adult's help. One of the kits' more innovative features, if she did say so herself!

She made her way across the shop to the counter and began punching numbers into the cash register. [b]"Right, so that's one bracelet kit regularly 2 galleons, 12 sickles, 17 knuts, on sale for 1 galleon, 6 sickles, 9 knuts,"[/b she said while calculated. "One t-shirt kit regularly 4 galleons, 7 sickles, 1 knut, on sale for 2 galleons, 3 sickles, 15 knuts; one tattoo kit regularly 1 galleon, 14 sickles, 2 knuts, on sale for 15 sickles, 8 knuts; and one earring at regular price of 1 galleon, 6 sickles, 9 knuts which brings the final total to…"

She took a quick moment to check over her calculations before announcing the total, "5 galleons, 14 sickles, and 12 knuts." As she waited for the girl to give her the money, she packed the t-shirt and bracelet kits in a cloth tote bag emblazoned with the shop's logo, and she may have slipped a little something extra in there as well. "There's a coupon for 25% off your next purchase in the bag, good for one year."

She looked to the other girl (Ashley) with the tattoo kit and earring and asked, "Would you like a bag too?"
