opened the shop on Liberia Avenue in Manassas on November 2, 1994.

Exposed Temptations could be found on Commerce Court in Manassas for the first three years before moving to its current location on Liberia Avenue. Exposed Temptations serves the entire Northern Virginia area including Prince William, Fairfax and Loudoun counties.

Several full time artists whose various styles make the studio the most diverse in the area are on staff. Each artist has a minimum of three years professional experience prior to working at Exposed Temptations and all have had work published in national tattoo magazines. Simply put, Exposed Temptations has the best artists in and around the Northern Virginia area.

Artists have their own private room meaning that your privacy is insured. All materials at Exposed Temptations are "single service" meaning that everything that touches the skin or ink is brand new and autoclave sterilized, and promptly disposed of after use. Your health is of utmost priority and our first concern. Every precaution available is taken at Exposed Temptations to insure your health and safety.

The piercing department uses these same standards as well. Two fulltime piercers are on staff to accommodate all types of body piercing.

All jewelry is of the highest quality surgical stainless steel and it is autoclave sterilized for your protection. As is the case in our tattoo department, everything that our piercers use is brand new and autoclave sterilized for your continued protection. Our safety standards are, in fact, so high that on several occasion we have had local and national news stations include us in interviews dealing with the health and safety issues surrounding tattooing today.

The shop's unique atmosphere and standard of cleanliness is regularly praised in both local and national newspapers and magazine articles. Don't take our word for it - stop by and check it out for yourself. Our work and shop will speak for itself.
