Tattooing as an art as much as the next thing. The intricacies, the patterns, the shading and the vibrant color picking all make for a rather difficult project!
Tattooing has been around since the Neolithic times! The first ever recorded tattoo evidence can be found dating between 3370 – 3100 BC! SO our ancestors were as inclined to it as we are now!
For a lot of travelers, getting inked in a new place they’ve traveled to is a sort of memento they take back from it.
If you ever find yourself in need of some ink, there’s no place like New York City to get that done. You can easily find a bus to New York from DC/Syracuse or Philadelphia bus station.
Here’s a list of some of the best tattoo studios in NYC:
1. Last Rites Tattoo Theatre
325 W 38th St, New York, NY 10018, USA
Ever wondered what it’d feel like getting inked in a dungeon? Well, this is as close as it gets! Tattoo legend and founder Paul Booth has a 4 1/2 year waitlist but you could get some classic as well as gothic styled tattoos by the other artists here.
$400 deposit for appointments.
2. Nice Tattoo Parlour
If the big and burly isn’t your scene, walk into Nice Tattoo Parlour and literally have the politest artists create the tattoo you’ve been wanting to get. Flash parties enable you to get your tats for as low as $50!
