New York City is a melting pot of different people, attitudes, and styles. It’s a place where people strive for originality and authenticity. Getting a tattoo is the perfect way to stand out from the crowd and let others know what you stand for. What better place to go to tattoo parlours than in the city where the American style tattoo was created. Chatham Square, in NYC, is the place where it all started and is still home to some very popular tattoo studios.
If you’ve had bad experiences getting tattoos or you’re not fond of what you currently have, you have options. There are laser removal businesses and you can even get a cover-up from your tattoo artist. The point is, NYC is home to some of brightest and best minds when it comes to tattoo art. If you’re looking for the perfect piece of body art, you can’t go wrong when you’re in the Big Apple.
Hours vary and some may be open 24 hours. Check our listings for tattoo artists that serve the NYC area.
