Hello everyone, I would like to announce that Inkstop Tattoo is officially closed and I have retired!
After 28 years of tattooing I have decided to pursue a new chapter in life. I will start doing drawings and paintings for myself and may post that on my Instagram account, inkstoptattoonyc, so you can follow me there if you are interested.
I want to say thank you so much to everyone who has seen me over the years and supported Inkstop Tattoo. I really appreciate it and wish you all the best for the new year and going forward.
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
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
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 artists 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
