Red Rocket Tattoo is MOVING

After 14 years in our longtime home at 46 west 36 street we’ve run out of  room to grow. So at the end of July to make room to accommodate our crew we’ll be packing up and moving our shop 100 yards west to the corner at 78 West 36 street. The new shop is on the top floor of a third story overlooking Herald square.

We’re in construction right now trying to get everything ready for our July 17th move in. We’ should be set up and slinging away by August 1rst. Check out some of the progress.

We’ll put some more images up as we get more progress underway so stay tuned and we’ll hope to see you at the new shop this August.
