We had the good fortune of connecting with Jason and Staci Martin and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jason and Staci, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
Owning a business has definitely blurred the work/life balance. They’re pretty much intertwined. 

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
At DermalGrafix, customers from all walks of life come together to enjoy custom, one-of-a-kind tattooing in a relaxed, easygoing environment. We know that getting a new tattoo or piercing can be intimidating for anyone, which is why we’ve set out to eliminate stigmas and make our shop as welcoming as possible. Our friendly service, knowledgeable artists, and careful attention to detail are sure to put you at ease — not to mention the relaxing sounds of a waterfall as you take in all our mystical urban jungle has to offer. From tattoos to piercings to eyebrow services, we promise you excellent work and an even better experience.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’d definitely recommend a stop at Stone Brewery here in Escondido. Out west, Encinitas is a great place to hang out and explore the shore and restaurants and bars. Taking a trip a little farther south, I’d stop in for brunch at Kindred in South Park and walk around.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
We would like to dedicate this Shout out to all of our artists here at DermalGrafix Tattoo. We would also like to include our wonderful clients, friends, and family.
