We remain closed during this NYS PAUSE as the city does what is best to contain the outbreak of COVID-19. We look forward to reopening, hopefully during May and are continuing to book our clients in advance.
Upon reopening we will also be requiring all clients and guests to wear some type of facial covering. This is to ensure the safety of everyone we come into contact with and ourselves. If you do not have a facial covering when you come in, don't worry, we will provide a basic one time use disposable surgical mask for you. If you do not wear it or some type of covering you will not be allowed into the shop. We appreciate your understanding and wish everyone physical health and mental well being during this time. We will get through this not divided, but together. Namaste.

We normally offer a financing option to our clients through Square. This has been suspended temporarily during this pandemic to discourage people from taking on any unnecessary debt until this is over. We always have our clients best interests in mind. We will be offering financing again at a later time once we feel it is a safe option for our clients.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been forced to temporarily close under the NYS PAUSE order. We believe this is for the best and will be reopening once this is all over. All previously booked clients will be rescheduled to adjust to this unforeseen closure.
“Manhattan Tattoos LLC is more than a tattoo studio. For me, it’s an environment that nurtures creativity, an environment to share with other artists, it’s a place artists and clients alike can come to feel comfortable and express themselves artistically. After working in other tattoo shops, I realized that the main point of tattooing was often, slowly being lost. That these days it was about the money, an ego or just full of irresponsibleness- all of which undermines this ancient craft. Tattooing has been around for thousands and thousands of years. It has been a way for beings to express themselves, a right of passage, a way to remember, to communicate, to heal. Tattooing is more than physical, it’s a spiritual experience. I have had the honor of discovering this and sharing it with others. The point of this studio is to continue that tradition in the modern sense with state of the art equipment and a pure vibe you just can’t find in most shops these days. It’s about the people. It always has been.”
