Tattoo Palace
How in the world can 12 people and 2 dogs coexist in 800 square feet? Creating a home for various friends and employees who have devoted their lives to art and music, tattoo artist Sue Jeiven is finding solutions in her tiny Boston space. She loves her eclectic collections of vintage pop culture and admits that she embraces clutter. Each room is decorated in a different theme: the Asian sun room, pop culture living room, medical bathroom, taxidermy hallway, rock and roll bathroom and so on.

Since even one person can create a mess when they walk in the front door, Jeiven has created ways to keep the clutter under control before it can get too far. She has created a entire hallway of coat hooks, labeled for each roommate and guests. Each roommate also has a locker for keys, gloves, shoes, hats and so on. Everyone also has a mailbox with their name on it; regular mail is distributed here, and it's a convenient place to leave notes for each other.
