Why locals recommend it
A lot of people don’t know that this open and eclectic tattoo shop was one of the first to open up in New York City. It birthed tattoo culture! My first tattoo was done here. You’ll pay more than anywhere else in the city, but that’s because you’ll get the best work done of your life. Good work ain’t cheap, and cheap work ain’t good! They specialize in piercings as well, like septum piercings, which are very very popular right now. The piercing parlor has beautiful jewelry––check it out!

Probably the best tattoo parlour in NYC. Some of the artwork is just incredible but prices are consequently pretty high. Definitely call to make an appointment.

“Whether you regularly get behind the decks or not, legendary record store and DJ depot Turntable Lab is a must-stop in the East Village. Not only do they stock vinyl from around the world, but they also have everything a budding audiophile needs to get their home system up to snuff. There aren’t many music stores left in the city since the dawn of the digital age, but this one is still going strong after all these years. ”
