Pretty soon, you'll see two new merchants at Villaggio Main Street. Pens and Needles, an upscale tattoo shop, and Mile High Karate, a family-based martial arts studio, will be part of the Main Street Shops section of the mixed-use development. Pens and Needles is anticipating an early April opening. The shop specializes in photo realism, portrature tattoo art and piercings. Mile High Karate Bossier City is part of the national martial arts chain, and is locally-owned by Richard Lear. The school focuses on more than "kicking and punching"...it also includes character development, self-confidence and sense of self worth. Classes will take place in The LakeHouse at Villaggio until the opening of the permanent location in early April.
