After being knocked off its MT Best Of perch for a few years, Eternal regains its throne this year. Formed in 1980, Eternal provides indelible artistic ink to satisfied customers at multiple locations throughout metro Detroit. And if you eventually become dissatisfied, Eternal even offers laser removal at its Howell store. Founder Terry "Tramp" Welker is something of a legend in the local body mod community, hawking his own product line and organizing the yearly Motor City Tattoo Convention.
