BRINGING THE HUMAN CONNECTION BACK TO TATTOOING
"Manhattan Tattoos 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 irresponsibility - all of which undermine 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 vibe you just can’t find in most shops these days. It’s about the people. It always has been."
