    Good walk-in shops in NYC

    So the itch to get tattooed is getting unbearable waiting for my next session and want to pick up something kinda small in the NJ-NYC area. Any good suggestions?

    I already know Smith Street is awesome but any other suggestions? (also any local artists chime in if you want).
    I also remember Thicker than Water being mentioned

    Flyrite in W'burg, Three Kings in Greenpoint, True Blue in Queens (only shop I've visited in Queens).. Lots more. TTW seems to keep up for the walk-ins. I'm less familiar with Manhattan. But there's a ton in the west village! winkwinknudgenudge.

    Wow looks like a fun shop and a cool guy! Might have to swing by!

    I am definitely looking for a walk in point to flash and get tattooed in the same day experience. I like getting custom pieces and going to custom shops but I feel I need that on-the-spot tattoo experience.

    Going to Mike Perfetto's is an experience you should do at least once in your life.The only drawback,is that he opens at 4pm,and there's usually people already waiting there to be first in line.It's more like an all day thing,then just walking in off the street and getting tattooed.It's better to go with a friend and make a day out of it.

    If your in N.Jersey,check out POWERHOUSE TATTOO CO. and http://www.jerseycitytattoo.com/
    Another good shop that's out of the way is IMMORTAL INK OFFICIAL WEBSITE in Clinton..They have a real nice shop,with plenty of capable tattooers.You should be able to get a walk-in there too.
