Success! Thanks for posting your review of Rising Dragon Tattoos. You’ve done the world some good today.


What's to say, these guys are awesome. I got an armband of Van Gogh's Starry Night put seamlessly around my forearm by Darren who was so enthusiastic about the whole project. As nervous as I was I felt really assured by his confidence. Other members of the staff was friendly and I couldn't help but notice how clean everything was, tough job for a big shop! I have other tattoos planned and I wouldn't go anywhere else.

5 star tattoo service that won't break the bank!!!

Fromt the moment I began my search, and search I did for quite sometime, i knew I wanted somplace that was friendly, accomodating, non-intimidating, and ultra professional. Rising Dragon is it. For a first timer, you might get a little queasy in the stomach, but they will do everything to make you feel right at home.\r \r From initial appointment, to consultation, to implementation, they are a class act and have no i... view more

Rising Dragon Makes Me Happy

I did a lot of research before getting my first (and currently only) tattoo. That's how I landed on Darren at Rising Dragon. The space is really comfortable, the tattoo artists all seem really cool and easygoing. I chose Darren for his experience with and love for dragons. He's an amazing artist and as soon as I told him what I wanted and where I wanted it, he just started drawing on my foot with markers until he was... view more

Great Place

This tattoo parlor is great, the people there are friendly and know what they are doing. I got my first tattoo here (by the owner). It was a great experience and tattoo came out great. I knew what I wanted already but couldn't find the right image. He did that for me and suggested I added a few more things to it. I ended up with the Perfect Tattoo, people give me compliments and ask where I got it. I went back and go... view more

Best tattoo Parlor, hands down!

Great Parlor, from the time you walk thru the door, and talk to either the receptionist or any artist you realize, .... ""This IS the place that I want to get my tattoo done"". This is not your everyday average shop.\r \r The entire staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, regardless if this is your 1st tattoo or another to add to your list/ body, you are treated the same.\r \r I got my tattoo done by Darren, the sh... view more

The Best Tattoo Shop In NYC

This is the only tattoo shop that I would ever consider getting a tattoo at because its very professionally run, clean, and the tattoo artists are all friendly and make you feel like part of the family. The vibe in this shop is the best! My husband uses Darren as his artist. Darren has done both of my husband's full arm sleeves. Darren is the master of creating amazing tattoos. He is gifted with that tattoo gun, maki... view more

Don't think twice, it's alright.

I did years of searching for a tattoo artist who was a ""true"" artist and not just some idiot with a needle. The staff at Rising Dragon represent a group of real artists and true professionals. If your goal is to have some truly original work done that you will get non-stop compliments about, then look no further. If you want some cheesy stock photo out of a book then go to one of the grimey shops found all over NY ... view more

my best tattoo experience

i have 3 small tattoos, and i was shopping around for a good shop in nyc to get my first big custom piece. i have heard about rising dragon and since they were in union square, i went on my lunch break to check it out. well, after checking the portfolios, i picked an italian artist named Simone because his work seemed to pop out the most. now i am in the process of getting a huge, colorful piece and i couldn't be mor... view more

About 18 months ago - I began working on full sleeves on both arms - in a tribal style. I worked with Darren Rosa - and have gotten an outstanding design, and really GREAT work. We discussed the things I liked - some images of designs.... and he came up with an outstanding design. The talent and professionalism of this shop is superb. \r \r

New York City's Best

I've been going to Rising Dragon for 6 years; I've had my back, chest piece, and half-sleeve done by the owner Darren Rosa. I am stopped all over the world by people asking where I had my work done. Darrens work has been featured in tattoo magazine several times (for which my work was pictured). It is truly unique- not something you just pull off a tattoo shop wall. The artists spend time fleshing out ideas with thei... view more
