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.

    • I am wanting a colorful big lotus on my shoulder (will be my first tattoo), and am finding artists that I like although their work is almost all in black. Is an artist who is talented in black not necessarily skilled with color?   Also, I am in Colorado and would definitely appreciate artist recommendations 
    • I did reply to this but for some reason it didn’t work.... so excuse me if for some reason I’ve posted this story twice.    a similar thing happened to me, but with my grandad. He unfortunately had a stroke and lost his marbles - previously a very proud man (an architect) and wasn’t overly fond of tattoos however.. I got a fairy tattooed on my shoulder about 10 years ago representing my grandparents because I went fairy hunting with them as a young child and it was such a special, magical time in my childhood that I wanted to keep a reminder.. anyhow. After he had his first stroke (unfortunately he had numerous) I showed him, he had tears in his eyes and stroked her gently and told me how beautiful she was. It really upset me but in a good way, because I knew at that moment it meant something to him too.    I also have “tomorrow’s another day” tattooed on my collarbone because it’s a saying my dad told me growing up (he suffered with depression, as did I growing up) so it was a constant reminder to try and remember that although today may be shit... tomorrow will hopefully be better. 
    • @oboogie that’s adorable. I want an old lady to touch my arm haha @Hollie yeah that seems to be the general consensus- doesn’t matter what people think as long as yr good with it. I think I was just seeking affirmation that it wasn’t a ‘bad tattoo’ / ‘done poorly.’ Ya know that pesky self doubt that a creeps around the brain!
