Established: 2001
Artists: Doug Curtis, Raul Arevelo, Ryan Dodson, Leo Calleros, Mike Belzel, Jai Devore
At 26th and Guadalupe Streets, right across from the University of Texas campus, Diablo Rojo has “probably one of the best locations in town, ” according to owner Doug Curtis. Though it’s within earshot of the school, the shop is for the most part custom, according to Curtis. But the weekends do have a tendency toward a “street shop atmosphere.” The shop itself is spacious and well-designed, featuring two fl oors with large, neon red crosses at the doorway entrance and an elaborate mosaic tiled fl oor. A vast selection of body jewelry (tribal, stretch, and fi tted) is sold right alongside the veteran crew of tattooers plying their trade. “We have a range of artists that vary in style from Japanese and portraits to traditional,” Curtis says. All the artists in the shop have been tattooing for at least 10 years, since seasoning and experience are key at Diablo Rojo. “We don’t have any new kids or apprentices,” Curtis explains.DRINK: Hole in the Wall, 2538 Guadalupe St., 512-477-4747. With a well-earned reputation for good times and great music, this campus-area institution hosts live music every night. A large front room plays host to a stage surrounded by portraits of regular patrons, and the back room has pool tables, booze, and shuffleboard.
EAT: Kerbey Lane Café, 2700 S. Lamar Blvd., 512-445-4451. Migas, omelets, and gingerbread pancakes make the South Austin location of this chain the place for homegrown Texas grub. Plus, it’s open 24 hours a day.

SHOP: Toy Joy, 2900 Guadalupe St., 512-320-0090. Caution: If you bring a kid (or a kid at heart) here, he may explode. Filled to the brim with retro, new, and hard-to-fi nd toys, candy, robots, wind-ups, and mobiles hanging every which way from the ceiling, this is Austin’s version of Wonkaland.
