Inkstop's doors were opened in February of 1997 by the owner Eric Rignall. Over the years, the tattoo shop and it's artists earned the reputation to be regarded as one of the best shops in New York City. We take the trust placed in us by our clients very seriously, with the emphasis on producing the highest quality artwork. We work with every person to create a beautiful custom tattoo that the artist will be happy with and that the client can wear proudly.
Thank you for your continued support.
On August I was in NY, so befora my holliday I had decided to get a tattoo... I chose InkStop because all the reviews are excellent!!! Was perfect, every friend says that the tattoo is great thank you so much!!! - A Google User
Ronen was fantastic! It was my first tattoo, and I was scared out of my mind. He was funny, calming, and didn't give in to my nerves. A wonderful experience over all. I am so glad I went here for my first time. - Ariel B. - Manhattan, NY
Eddie at Inkstop is amazing. Best artist in the shop. I have had 5+ pieces done by him over the last several years. Every tattoo he does is a true work of art. He is able to capture exactly what you want as if he is inside your head. I have pieces both big and small (including a sleeve) and each one he does is better than the last. He is not a tattoo artist, he is an artist in general who incorporates his multimedia skills into each tattoo. He is excellent at both color tattoosand black and grey. He has tattooed both family and friends who are always extremely satisfied. I get stopped on the street by strangers who want to compliment the work have had done by him. At this rate, I'm probably going to run out of space soon... - Steffi R. - Brooklyn, NY
I had been living with an awful crap tattoo for the last 15 yrs until I finally decided it had to go! I did a lot of research and eventually honed in on Eric - loved him right away! His work clrly, then his personality. From the time I sat during my consult to the moment I sat in the chair to be inked I was attended to 100% sufficiently - even my 20 different emails with suggestions and comments were replied to super fast. Soooo, 10hrs (collectively not all at once - yikes) later I have a GORGEOUS cover-up piece on my back that I cannot wait to show off this summer. I enjoyed my sessions so much; from bullsh*tting about movies & music, to the staff's attentiveness right down to the smell of the shop - which I missed for a few weeks after, must have been withdrawal. Also, they're located in a pretty cool part of town so after you get tatted you can go bar crawl. :-) - Stephanie B. - Kew Gardens, NY
Five years ago i came to inkstop tattoo on a last minute impulse while on my college spring break.. I had thought about the tats i wanted for maybe 3 years, but had never grown the pair i needed to actually get it done . 1 1/2 hours later i walked out with an even better version of what I had Fast forward to this past weekend for round 2 of tattooing! l, as well as my boyfriend, sat with Eddie for what was to be my second set of tattoos and my boyfriend's first. Eddie is a no-nonsense, to the point artist who will by no means hold your hand or tell you things will be ok...But if what you're looking for is professionalism, cleanliness and a bad-ass art piece on your body, definitely come here and I am absolutely in LOVE with my new additions and am now convinced this is the only place i will come to when i decide to get more. So please do yoursell alavor and talk to these guys for your next piece. - Evelyn N. - Manhattan, NY
If you are looking for the new age of tattoo shop that's part café / hipster hang-out, this is not your place. If you prefer an establishment whose focus is quality of product, look no further than Ink-stop Tattoo. I chose Ronen whose style really appealed to me. He designed a large mermaid to adorn my left arm & went to great lengths to tweak the lay-out until I was happy. While it looked great on paper, I am blown away by the final result! The lines are precise & his attention to detail leaves nothing to chance. Even my mother, (who doesn't like tattoos), can't believe how good it looks. While there, I also had the chance to chat with Eddie & Eric who couldn't have been more welcoming. The entire process- from setting up the 1st consultation with Chris, through walking out 4 sessions later, was silky smooth. Do yourself a favor before you get your next tattoo. Stop in & look at the portfolios of these seasoned professionals, than rank their work vs. other tattoos you've seen. That will be all it takes. I am already visualizing what to do on my right arm & look forward to exchanging ideas with Ronen to lay out another master-piece. ;-) - Bill L. - Livingston, NJ
Let me start off by saying; I have four tattoos and ALL of them have been done at this fine establishment. My first tattoo came at age 29, as I always was hesitant about getting some ink work done for many of the same reasons other people are indecisive about it. But after my first one - yes, it became addicting. And this place makes you feel at ease about getting one, the artists are top notch and the work speaks for itself. Jose has done all of my tattoos. And in a few weeks, I'll be going in for a touch-up and after that, the rest of my right arm and eventually, my left arm as well. Regardless if you are a rookie or completely immersed in getting yourself inked from head-to-toe, Jose is a pros-pro; talking you through the process, demonstrating the proper cleanliness and safety procedures of the process, always giving the customer the respect they deserve when going through this experience. The rest of the artist are cool, the setting is unpretentious and very unassuming. Eddie's work looks amazing, and I will definitely get a piece done by him at some point. Do not hesitate, I full endorse this place and will continue frequenting this spot! - Victor C. - Queens, NY
I wouldn't go anywhere else for my tattoos! ['ve had several large pieces done there and I am completely blown away each time I walk out. The artists have designed pieces for me better than I could have ever imagined! I also truly appreciate the professionalism of the shop. It's very clean and all of the artists take their work seriously. lt's a very comfortable environment to get tattooed in. The afiists at this shop are very talented and I would recommend this shop to anyone! - Jessica H. - Canaan, NY
My cousin told me about lnkstop a few years ago, and recommended I speak to Eric for my future tattoos. Before coming here, I have been disappointed in the past by various other tattoo arlists in NY, so I was extremely pleased with the way my first tattoo came out (script lettering on my chest). Fast forward 3 years, and l've decided to get my entire left sleeve done because I wouldn't trust anyone else with such a big piece. Eric was really patient and detailed with each session, and I am always confident in his abilities. Since it's tank top season, my sleeve is currently visible to everyone - and I literally cannot step out of ihe house without people complimenting me on my tattoos. Every time somebody asks me if I know any good tattoo artists, I always-point them in direction of lnkstop - because in all honesty, they're that good! - Yudit M. - Ridgewood, NY
My third trip here to finish up my first tattoo. Great staff, friendly and perfessional. Terry did a fantastic piece of MichaelThe Archangel taken from a painting by Guido Reni 1635. I showed him the pic and I told him I wanted it in photo realism; he did the magic. I am ecstatic of the work he did. I can't stop looking at it. - Michael V. - Brooklyn, NY
I have gotten 2 giant pieces here and it is about time I give my respects to Jose. For both tattoos, I came to Jose and said you be the artist and design what you think is best. To say that Jose killed it would be an understatement. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't get at least 3 compliments on my sleeves. lf strangers in NYC are willing to stop and admire, you know it looks good. The shop is very clean and personable. Eric and his staff are super chill and you spend more time laughing and talking than you do thinking about getting inked. I have found my artist in NYC and won't go anywhere else! - Kyle M. - New York, NY
