Red Rocket Tattoo
78 W 36th St, New York, NY 10018
I'm in midtown all the time, and I must've passed by Red Rocket Tattoo a hundred, two hundred, three hundred times.\r
A friend of mine told me that he had been directed to Red Rocket by his daughter, who mentioned that the shop has real artists onboard, and that among them was one Betty Rose.\r
So I called up, made an appointment with Betty, and then explained the idea I had in mind. Betty made some suggestions based on location, size and -- this is what neiled it for me -- originality. Betty explained how long the work would take, and believe it or not, she was within five minutes of her estimate.\r
So now I've got this beautiful work on my forearm, and when I'm asked WHERE I had it done, I just say, ""Midtown. Red Rocket. Betty Rose.""\r
By the way, the shop is clean, the other artists know what they're doing, and the shop's located in midtown. But Betty Rose is THE one.
