Need help! Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

So here's the idea....

My lovely fiancee and I are running away to Coney Island to get married... We are currently planning things, and realize that we are still missing a few details. We would like to get tattooed the same day, right after the wedding, and are looking for an artist that is proficient in traditional style tattooing. I figure since we are in Coney Island, this would also be a great time to visit some historical tattoo sites as well. If anyone can recommend an artist for us, we would be very grateful. We dont mind traveling abit, but we don`t want to stray too far from the area. Cheers.

There are a ton of people who can do great traditional tattoos in Brooklyn. If you want to real traditional, you can get tattooed by Tony Polito or Mike Perfetto. Smith Street (in Carroll Gardens), Greenpoint Tattoo (Greenpoint), Flyrite Tattoo (Williamsburg), Hand of Glory (Park Slope) will all give you a great tattoo. Plenty of options available.

I find it great that a few of you mentioned Smith st, I found out about them a few days ago, and have been very interested in the studio since. Thanks to everyone who has commented so far! Much appreciated!

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
