New York City has a trove of tattoo talent (just, um, look at the skin of someone nearby?), and finding a good place to get a tattoo isn't difficult. Finding a great place takes a little more descretion. And great is, well, subjective. Maybe you want a longtime artist who has seen and tattooed it all, or you're open to an apprentice who's crazy talented, but a little lower in price. One thing's for sure: You want to be clean, comfortable and wholly satisfied with your new body art. We've got you.
Whether you want a custom design or are picking your favorite New York City skyscraper off a flash sheet, here's where to get inked across New York City.
