Red Rocket Tattoo, located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, is the second incarnation of a world-renowned studio established by owner Mike Bellamy 14 years ago. Changing the studio name in 2006, Red Rocket Tattoo has grown in popularity and prowess and now boasts a staff of fresh and highly talented artists as well as a few salty dogs to round out the bunch. Open 7 days a week, our style runs the gamut from super fine portraits to new school/old school adaptations to Japanese-influenced and custom ideas of all flavors.
Our artists come from many different art school backgrounds, completed degree programs and have studied and tattooed with the best of the best in studios and conventions around the world. Our tattoo work, paintings and drawings have been published in tattoo and art magazines worldwide and we have all participated in fine art gallery exhibitions. All of our artists are licensed by the City of New York Department of Health and have been educated in the area of blood borne pathogens, cross contamination and sterilization. We have worked with the New York Tattoo Convention as a liaison between artists and City Health board. We have a relaxed living room atmosphere and music to match the eclectic tastes of our artists. Our clients are from all walks of life, and as long as you are of age- we are looking forward to working closely with you to design and professionally apply a lasting & amazing tattoo that you will be proud to show off! This is not your ordinary walk-in-and-pick-off-the-wall kind of studio.
