Great tattoo shops near Manhattan (New York) for walk-ins?

Recommended Posts

Hey gang!

I'm going to NYC for the very first time in about 10 days. Would love to get a souvenir tattoo whilst I'm there, but cannot commit to a date or time. So I'm trying to make a list of great shops that do walk-ins. The only one I have so far is Smith Street Tattoo - I have a piece by Eli Quinters and would love another one. 

Any and all advice appreciated.

Yeah, I've definitely see people at Kings Ave do walk ins on almost every trip up there. I'll be there on July 8, if you're in the area and looking for an LST meetup!

Smith Street, NYHC, and Rose were all super friendly and accommodating when I've stopped in to check em out.

Love Hate takes walk-ins and I think Daredevil does too. Heck, I'd still try Adorned, Saved and Kings Ave if I was there!

Thanks. Yeah there are certainly many to choose from :)

@ThatGuy gotta give a shout out to http://behind-the-circle.com/ in Brooklyn. Easy to get to, walk ins.

http://www.nyhctattoo.com/ if you want to support the scene.

Cheers.

And please, while you're here, do NOT stand in the middle of the side walk while I'm trying to get home from work haha.

I will do my very best not to act touristy... haha.

Oh you getting tattooed on the 8th? I'll most likely be chasing walk-ins 10-12th. I'm in NY 6-14 :)

Nice. Yeah, I'll be getting tattooed at 12:30 on Saturday the 8th with Grez. The shop guy, Dylan, is really awesome, so despite not being primarily a walk in shop, they try to get people in when and where they can.

Either way, Kings Ave or not, you have a million options. Good luck and enjoy your trip. Drop me a message here on Insta if you happen to be around the Bowery on the 8th! There are a million great places to eat around there.

    • 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.
