Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Shop owners Veronica Cano and Emily Conley (a.k.a. the women you’d want to recruit for your all-girl punk band) run one hell of a store, carrying edgy clothing like All the Best Boys muscle tees ($25), goth-glam home goods such as Anatomical Heart pillows ($45), and macabre loot like Ouija planchettes ($24). But the coolest part? There’s a tattoo parlor in the back. Megan Massacre, the star of TLC’s NY Ink, controls the inking operation (her expertise ranges from portraits to thorn-covered roses and incredibly detailed outdoor sceneries) and brings in new artists every week. Tattoos ($250–$400 per hour) are usually by appointment, but the flame-haired beauty does take walk-ins, so at least you can shop while you wait to get inked.
