Cutting Edge is AMAZING 9/6/2010

I had my whole right arm and lower half of my left arm done on multiple visits, each time i was very pleased with the staff and the artists as well. The shop itself was spotless and I did get and ear peircing there aswell, the peircing area was equilly as well kept, it has since healed very nicely adn the jewlery i got there did NOT cause an infection for me. My tattoo's were done by Jayson who did and AMAZING job on everything! The price was very reasonable and totaly worth every penny! I will DEFF get more work done there. I always recomend this shop and artist to anyone who asks me. more

BEST Place in NYC for Tats 7/1/2010

I've got a few other tats at other shops thoughout the country and came here looking for some wording done on my back. These guys were very professional and the place is SPOTLESS clean. They helped me pick out the font, and the artists are incredible. If this would be your first tattoo, I would definitely recommend this place. I was told at other shops around the city that it would cost me over double what I got charged there. They don't try to rip you off and make a buck and are true to the art. I will DEFINITELY be back soon. Pros: Clean, Friendly, Reasonably priced. more

Great ear pirecing! 6/17/2010

I got my earlobes pierced a week ago today and I have not experienced a problem thus far. When I went into the shop, I thought that it would be more expensive than in my town, but it actually turned out to be $15 cheaper! Tony, the piercer, was very precise and made sure to get the piercings even. They gave great tips and thorough cleaning instructions. I have scar tissue in my left ear from previous botched piercings that ended up closing up and Tony somehow pierced around it! All around, they were very informative, clean (and I'm a neat freak), and precise. I enjoyed my experience, and I would refer them to anyone who asked! Pros: clean, precise more

Beautiful Tat, Terrific Guys 5/25/2010

I got a tattoo by Jayson today - an ambigram of my niece and nephew's names on my leg. Jayson did an impeccable job - solid, clean lines with just the right amount of shading and perfect placement. His advice to go with shading instead of all black was spot on. The tattoo was virtually painless (yes, for real) and bloodless. I had a great time talking to Jayson and his coworkers as the tat was being done. I will definitely be back!! PS - the shop is very clean and welcoming, and of course in an awesome neighborhood. Thanks for a great experience! more

Great Studio, Amazing Service and Friendly Staff 5/25/2010

I am a regular customer. I had 2 of my tattoos (my most recent ones) and 4 piercings done at Cutting Edge. When my first piercing didn't seem to heal properly the owner Adam and the piercer Chris helped me find the cause and the right jewelery. It turns out I am allergic to Nickel and can only use industrial strength surgical steel jewelery. Just as a note gold has nickel in it too and might cause infection like reactions. Cutting Edge and all the staff working there are amazing ! I recommend them to all my friends on a regular basis ! Pros: talented artists, quality work, and very clean !!! more

guaranteed service 5/25/2010

we keep all records on every individual who gets pierced or tattooed at our establishment. We investigated this incident with our piercers but there was no such incident of this nature as this person claims. I do ask this person to stop by our studio if he/she had their piercing done here. We do stand by our products and most of our customers know if there is ever a problem with our jewelry, we do always replace it for free. more

AT YOUR OWN RISK 5/23/2010

make a long story short, got my ears pierced two more holes above my earlobe and hell ensued. The bootleg gold they gave me, caused an infection. I go back, tell them the problem, instead of it being free, i cough up $40, for new earrings, that he says is guaranteed to not cause an infection. Guess what i got again? Living on peroxide and alcohol, so my ears dont fall off. Cons: Infections, customer service, did i say infections? more

Jon Jon is Fantastic! 2/22/2010

I had my tattoo done with Jon about a week ago. This was a bigger tattoo than I have ever gotten before. I made an appointment and Jon was there, on time and ready for me. He worked on the art on my back for over two hours. Not only was he friendly and made me feel comfortable, but everyone else who works there came in periodically to check how I was doing. I gave jon an idea of what I wanted but gave him creative control and he did such a wonderful job. I love my tattoo and I get so many compliments on it. THANKS JON!!! (last saturday, sunflower tattoo) Pros: Friendly, Very professional, clean, nice place Cons: none! more


Cutting edge is clean, cozy & friendly. Jon-Jon did a BEAUTIFUL blossom piece for me that he made up. I LOVE THAT PLACE!!!! THANK YOU JON_JON!!!! Michelle (your 1 o'clock @ Fri 2/5/2010) You hooked me up :) Pros: THEY DO THE BEST WORK!!! Cons: NONE! more

Recommended! 8/25/2008

This past Saturday, 8/23/08 I had my hood pierced (below the belt). Tony was awesome! He was knowledgable, professional and like another poster said, made me feel at ease. He took his time and let me ask all the questions in the world. The place is clean and everything he used was sterile. Totally recommend them! more

Sweet 5/30/2008

All my visits to Cutting Edge have been nothing less then great> Pros: clean, knowledgeable staff, nice atmosphere, beautiful art more

Tony was great! 5/25/2008

Got my nose pierced by Tony today...he was very humorous and calmed my nerves as he was cracking jokes on me! I'm very happy with my piercing and would highly recommend this spot for a nose piercing. I'm do back in a month and might check out their tattoo work. Pros: funny Cons: a little pricey more

Perfect services 3/25/2008

I got my last tattoo here a few years ago, so I thought I would go back again before trying out any other place. The tattoo artist was great - we fixed up an appointment right away, he emailed me his preliminary design and within a weeks, I got inked and was good to go. more

Just damn good 1/6/2008

definitely a fun place with good artists,i highly recommend it ,they have good parties too,go there and meet them and be prepared for a laugh . Pros: comedy Cons: toilet out in the waiting area. more

Great Place, customer service, and atmosphere--thanks Anthony! 8/24/2007

I heard about this place on here and I definitely agree with all the other posts that it was a good place. At first I was a little skeptical about the location but once I went in the waiting area was clean and neat and the atmosphere was nice to sit and wait in. I met with the tattoo artist who looked at my design and gave me quote he spent a good amount of time drawing it up and perfecting it to the way I liked it, Pros: Atmosphere and quality more

Awesome! 2/26/2007

So far I have gotten 2 facial piercings and a tattoo here, they are amazing! The atmosphere is good, the people are super nice and they know what they are doing. It's really clean as well! I plan on getting several more tattoos and wouldn't think of going anywhere else! Pros: everything! Cons: nothing! more

Had a PA and Freum done, excellent work - 1 week in and no problems - even after you know what! 11/13/2006

I highly recommend Tony. He explaind the entire process, before during and after the piercing. He tsalked me through the entire process andwhat to expect. I love my new piercing PA and Frenum. Pros: Great environment Cons: None more

the BEST!!! 10/16/2006

My cousin wanted to tattoo an image of goddess Nike, she printed it out off internet but the image needed to be scaled down to how she wanted it tattooed. So, we citysearch-ed to find a reputable spot. We jotted down 4 locations and went to visit them to get more info and hopefully arrange an appt. 1st we went to Inkstop, there were couple of people in line in front of us, 2 already getting inked. After 20 mins we finally got some attention with the appointment boy. (There was no front desk so he just walked around w/appt book). We showed him the print out to which he wrinkled his nose, saying it wouldn't look right as a tattoo but he'll talk to the artist. He came back and said that the artist can't size the drawing - basically said it can't be done (!)... encouraging! Anyway, the place was plaster white w/neon lights - not in sterile way, more in a village vet's office way. 2nd we went to Andromeda where the guy working the front was either high or a complete snob. When we showed him the picture he looked at it like he didn't want anything to do with it, saying that instead she should get a tattoo of a ""beer bottle with bunch of cigarettes sticking out of it."" He told us they charge $150/hr. The place had some daylight in the front but was dark and getting darker further back. It also reeked of bleach. Parking on or around St. Marks was impossible. Then we walked into Cutting Edge and loved it! Place looked great, waiting area painted and decorated very simple but cozy. The guy at front desk was friendly and professional and the artist (Xander) was immediately willing to work with our design. He redrew it (to perfection!), gave us a fixed price $150 and we set an appt for the following week. We came back, everything was clean, comfortable and professional. Everything took 1&1/2 hrs. No pain, no probs,2 wks passed since and her tattoo looks amazing! On a sidenote, both days we went there - Saturday @ noon - plenty of parking but bring quarters. Pros: service, ambience, everything! Cons: none! more

Best Tattoo Artists I have ever met!! 6/13/2006

I always believe in seeing an artist work on other clients before getting it done to myself. more

Comfortable, personable, and great piercers! 6/9/2006

I've gotten a couple piercings here over the past year and a half. The owner always makes sure you are comfortable with everything, and is super nice! I'm picky about where I get pierced since I know a lot of shop owners and plenty about piercings, and I wouldn't go anywhere else in the city. It's reasonable with a great selection and everything is done up to code by knowledgable piercers (Sarah and their other girl are great!) They are genuinely concerned about the health of your piercings and do everything in their power to make your experience a good one. more
