“I had the pleasure of being tattoed by Johanna and I have to say, I enjoyed every minute of my tattooing experience. She was an absolute joy to be around . She is an amazing artist and I couldn't be happier with my new tattoo. I also had the pleasure of meeting Mary, another amazing artist. I had a blast spending my back to back sessions with them. They both get 5 out if 5 in my book.Service: Tattoos”

“I was a walk-in and came in for piercings. Jinna was super friendly and welcoming from the get-go and was answering all my questions as soon as I stepped into the shop (which btw is cute, cozy, and has beautiful decor and art).I had my earlobes re-pierced after an unfortunate sequence of events that led to keloids many years ago (stay away from piercing guns, kids). Jinna has a gentle hand and I barely felt the needles; she was also sure not to pierce through any existing scarring. She thoroughly explained everything that I needed to know in terms of aftercare and has even offered to help remove my jewelry if I'm too nervous to do it on my own once they're all healed. I will definitely be returning for more piercings!Service: Piercings”

Got to take pictures with the own, who I've seen on Ink Masters and another tattoo documentary. Now they have a second shop in the Bowery.
