Best Bzzzzt Bzzz Bzzzzt Sounds

Ever find yourself itching to get painted with permanent ink but aren't really interested in the intimidating environment of motorcycles and black leather that many tattoo shops tend to exhibit? You're not alone, which is why Lucky Drive Tattoos is your pick for Marin County's Best Body Art Place. Established in July 2005, this shop can fulfill just about any request, be it custom art, traditional Japanese, black-and-gray or lettering. Just ask the girl who went in ink-free and eight hours later emerged brandishing a monstrous dragon that started at her hip and wrapped around her body. Known for being friendly and approachable, the three artists on staff treat every tattoo as a piece to be proud of. Quality work is always preferred when it comes to something indelible . . . unless you're willing to go through the pain of removal.—M.S.


Best Way to Change Lives

Ask any successful person how they got far in life and most will credit an adult mentor. But what happens to kids who may not have access to adult guidance? Mentor Me Petaluma was founded in 1999 by a group of parents, teachers and community members as a way to address that very issue, making it your pick for best nonprofit in Sonoma County.

Executive director Val Richman says that Mentor Me Petaluma, which has expanded into 13 elementary, middle and high schools, provides numerous benefits "first and foremost" to the kids while enriching lives of the mentors. Mentors cook, play sports and collaborate on art projects and school plays, and Richman says there's always a need for more mentors, since the program has 75 to 80 kids on the waiting list at any given time. "We have kids who have parents who have died or are terminally ill. Parents that are in jail," says Richman. "An hour a week over time can make a huge difference for the kids."—L.C.
