White Rabbit Tattoo Studio (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Forget fluorescent lights and walls covered with sacred hearts and swallows. This East Village tattoo shop is a cozy, sophisticated parlor, complete with wall-mounted taxidermy, framed vintage prints, crystal chandeliers and copies of The New Yorker. Help yourself to a gratis spot of tea, cookies or an Americano from the espresso machine on the dark-wood counter while you discuss your idea for ink with one of the three resident artists, all of whom have fine-art backgrounds. Go to the boss, and you can be inked with owner Jes Ashby’s signature work, which features abstract shapes in vivid colors. Once you’ve settled on a design (consultations are free), take a seat in one of the studio’s three plush white chairs, where you’ll be tattooed with vegan ink (minimum of $150 per hour). On your way out, pick up some aftercare products, such as Ashby’s handmade vegan lotion ($10–$20).
