In mid-August a new tattoo, piercing and hair salon opened in Milan. The Ink & Dye salon, run by Thaddeus St. Clair, originally from Pinkney who has been tattooing for 11 years, and Ashley Kerkes, originally from Milan who has been doing hair for seven years. The couple has been together for 10 years with three kids and has a fourth on the way. Combining their two businesses, the tattoo parlor and a hair studio will be in separate rooms. A large adjacent meeting room will be used as an educational space, where St. Clair plans to teach art classes and host paint and pours. They have taken care in restoring the building, which provides a feel of walking back into a piece of the town’s history.
