Best

I'd been wanting to get a tattoo for a while, but wanted to make sure I was going to a good place. Doing a search for something related I came on the many outstanding reviews for ...

Worst

OMG, the owner quoted my gf a price of $800 and then raised it to $1,100 on the day she showed up to get it. WHAT THE HECK!!

Editorial review from Citysearch 12/6/2012

This is the place to go to for a tattoo. Its such a clean and organized place with friendly service. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/29/2012

i have gotten 2 ill tattoos done by the amazing Mr. Paul Reynolds at this shop. Not only is the work amazing, but the experience as well. Its a gorgeous shop, and friendly too. TJ, who I believe runs the place, is nothing but sweet to all who enter. Thank you guys so much, and i am sure i will be in soon for a 3rd piece!!! more

Amazing job done by alex alien more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/3/2012

Absolutely worth it! Great atmosphere and cool guys. Let me help out designing my tattoo with them.. TJ, up front (and the owner), was awesome doing business with. Alex did my tat and was very patient with me, allowing me to adjust the placement of my tat numerous times. Real nice/sharp lines too. more

So Worth It! 7/2/2012

I was looking for someone to design an add-on to my existing tattoo. I didn't have high hopes, not having luck with quality designs in the past. I came across Alex Alien's portfolio online & I was impressed; then I read the Studio 28 reviews and became optimistically excited! I emailed the shop right away. TJ was very responsive & we communicated this way - working out the design details; discussing cost; and arranging the appointment. more

Couldn't be better. 5/27/2012

I'd been wanting to get a tattoo for a while, but wanted to make sure I was going to a good place. Doing a search for something related I came on the many outstanding reviews for Studio 28 at Citysearch and went in to see them. I couldn't have had a better experience. They made it easy to talk to them about my idea, and were great about explaining what would need to be adjusted--this was just what I was hoping for since I lack the practical knowledge to know how an idea would translate onto the skin. Everything others have said about the space is true--very relaxed, very welcoming, and very very clean. The place is open and simple-looking--there's nothing to compete with the art being created. The tattoo experience was good from start to finish. Paul Reynolds did a sketch, then some adjustments, and then went to work. As I admitted afterwards, while he was working (where I couldn't see) I prepared myself to be disappointed, thinking it couldn't look as nice as I imaged it. But the actual tattoo looked even better! The colors, the details--as my friend said when I showed it to them: OMG, that's perfect! I'll be proud to recommend TJ, Paul and everyone at Studio 28 to anyone looking for the best! more

Excellent Custom Tattoo Shop. 5/5/2012

So my girlfriend and I were in NYC for about a week just to visit my high school buddies, and to show her where I grew up (We live in San Francisco). We knew we wanted to get an appointment for my lady to get tattooed in New York, as we both thoroughly enjoy some good body art, yet we were worried that we would not be able to get an appointment that fit within our timeline. Thanks to C.J. and my artist from Studio 28, Paul Reynolds, they were not only able to consult her about her tattoo, and customize it to perfection, but they also helped me finalize a tattoo that is an homage to my baseball hero, Mickey Mantle. My girlfriend's tattoo was a bit tricky for him to design, so he told us to come back the next day when they opened the shop (and that worked out great). In the mean time, Paul took my idea of a yankees cap on a skull, and transformed it into a masterpiece portrait of Mickey, half skull-faced, and half portrait. He drew it up within minutes, and 3 hours later, I had the most beautiful tattoo I couldve ever imagined. Not only did he go the extra mile making mine look great, he did the exact same for my girlfriend. On top of the exceptional artwork, Paul is a really cool guy who is cool to talk to, and is a master with the tattoo gun. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone who is considering getting a tattoo. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Alex Alien, but C.J. and Paul, the two guys I did get to know, had great attitudes, and there is not one negative thing that I have to say. Overall great experience. I WILL be back soon. more

An unexpected surprise - and a good one at that. 4/23/2012

I'm new to NYC so I wanted to check out shops in a few different areas (Midtown, the Village, and a couple bouroughs). I headed into Studio 28 to discuss the last pieces to my half sleeve. While I had a few pieces in the space, they were smaller and left a large canvas. I met with TJ (owner) and Paul (artist) and had great converations with both. I was extremely surprised at the attitudes of these guys as I expected much less from a Midtown shop - I've never been so glad to be proved wrong. These guys care about the customer just as much, if not more than the artwork itself. They're looking out for your best interest with the work you want done. Even before discussing the specifics of the piece I wanted, I knew I would let these guys finish my arm. more

Great Experience!!! 4/17/2012

Im incredibly happy i went to studio 28 for my first tattoo. The shop was very clean and they were really professional and friendly. I got tattooed by Paul, i must say i love his work. He was fast and did an amazing job. Im definitely going back there for my second piece. Thanks guys!!! more

Hidden Gem! 3/31/2012

There is absolutely nothing bad to say about Studio 28!! The owner, TJ keeps that place spotless, is very prompt with returning calls or emails, and is very informative!! Alex, my artist is great! He's patient, very focused, and has great ideas. After spending the afternoon with these two starting a sleeve on my right arm, I would say after phase 1 I'll be heading back to studio 28 to not only finish my arm, but add to the rest of my blank canvas! I highly recommend steering away from the more ""popular"" shops in the city and trusting Studio 28!! THANKS GUYS!! more

100% Satisfied 3/7/2012

I'd been waiting to get my tattoo for years, and just hadn't made any moves. I reached out to a friend for an artist referral, and was sent to Alex Alien at Studio 28. I am beyond thrilled with the result. TJ handles the business end extremely professionally, responding to emails nearly immediately, and providing great information. The studio is spotless and cozy; a really comforting atmosphere for the service that is being provided. I definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking! more

Positive surprise 3/7/2012

Before going to New York I decide to do a new tattoo, and browsed the web. And I found work made by Alex Ailen at Studio 28. Decided to send the a few questions. Got a fast response from them. After few mail I sent pic?s of the tattoo i wanted to have. 2 weeks later I went to the studio and got a warm welcome, and also a discussion and 2 different proposals of my tattoo. TJ came up with a good ideas and I decide to go the TJ?s proposal. After 5 hrs the tattoo ready, and Alex had done a terrific tattoo. Summery a very professional studio, and can strongly recommend Studio 28. more

My new go-to for ALL my ink! 3/7/2012

For my 7th tattoo I was searching for a studio that offers custom artwork backed by a pristine reputation-- Studio 28 is everything I was looking for. TJ communicated with me through the whole process, from my consultation to reviewing the artwork with me, and checking on my healing process. Alex Alien did an *amazing* job on my tat, which spans my inner forearm- wrist to elbow. The attention to detail, colors and artwork are all the best they could possibly be. I will absolutely be returning for all of my future tattoos. Thank you guys!! more

Custom Tattoo 2/18/2012

I have been getting tattooed for a number of years now..needless to say I have plenty of tattoos. I wanted a custom tattoo on my forearm to celebrate the birth of my son. Because it was the forearm piece I needed to do my homework for the studio and the artist. After countless searches and researches I decided to check out Studio 28 and requested that Alex Alien draw something up. After meeting T.J Cantwell and seeing the studio I knew I had made the right decision. Alex had exceeded my expectations. The only negative comment is that Alex was so amazing he made all my other tattoos look bad. I will be going back for a full sleeve in the near future and I highly recommend Alex and Studio 28 for any tattoo weather its your 1st or 31st you wont be sorry. more

Absolutely Incredible. 2/5/2012

I recently had my second tattoo done at Studio 28. It is absolutely incredible. From the moment I walked in with my design, I was taken by the genuine (and meticulously clean) nature of the studio, and more importantly the people working there . TJ is approachable, friendly, helpful, professional, and honest. Alex (the artist) was amazing. I had a very specific tattoo design in mind and it came out even better than I had imagined. The contours, the shading, and the detail is shocking.I HIGHLY recommend this studio for a custom tattoo. I certainly will be going back., and will point all of my friends their way. THANK YOU. more

Exceptional Place For Custom Tattoo Work 2/3/2012

I was directed to Studio 28 by my girlfriend, who had gotten custom work a few months prior. As I was very impressed by the way TJ conducts business and the work Alex did, I had full confidence that they would collaborate to bring the vision of my next tattoo to life. Needless to say, I am extremely satisfied by the quality of the work. Alex is an accomplished professional who is totally dedicated to his craft. TJ is an honest businessman (a rarity in today's society) who is prepared to answer any questions one might have, whether a person is getting their first tattoo or as I was, adding to my ""canvas."" I highly recommend Studio 28 tattoos for all your custom ink needs. more

First Tattoo 1/25/2012

This was my first tattoo. I decided to go big and put a lot of trust in Studio 28's hands. I couldn't be more happy about the way it turned out. The detail and coloring are outstanding. Alex is an outstanding artist. You can really see the effort put into the work, and I also know great effort was put into it after sitting in the chair for over 5 hours with only a couple short breaks. Nowhere in my tattoo can I find something I would change. The place is also welcoming and clean. I would recommend Studio 28 for anyone looking for a good CUSTOM tattoo that is willing to trust great artists. Thanks again for the piece fellas and I look forward to working with you again. more

Awesome experience 1/19/2012

My first tattoo ever, and the first place that I looked it! I knew right away I was in a good place. TJ is very informative, answered all my questions. The process was easy, comfortable, great ambiance, music, and totally comfortable. Thanks to Alex, now I have an amazing tattoo that I love. He did exactly as I had it sketched, very calm and made me feel comfortable and at ease. I would definitely go back if I wanted another tattoo! more

most amazing artists in the business!! Hands down! 1/5/2012

well letr me start by saying the on pretentious atmoshpere is a plus, more importantly the attention to detail they give you 100% during the entire expierience. Also the prices vary, but totally reasonable...even though they should be charging a lot more...however the finsihed product and great amazing art work is what they live by!! I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT WAIT TO GO BACK NEXT WEEK AND GET MY SLEEVE STARTED!!! THANK YOU STUDIO 28 FOR THIS EXPERIENCE TO LAST A LIFE TIME, AND CONTINUED BUSINES FROM ME NOW, AND MOVING FORWARD..YOU GUYS ROCK! Keep up the amazing work!!! special thank you to Alex my ink artist and one of the best, if not best in the business and to T.J. cantwell for running such a wonderfull orig. artistic shop. more
