The Brooklyn Bridge is forever — so get a tattoo of it

You don’t love Brooklyn nearly as much as this guy does.

The only way to show true love for Brooklyn is to ink the deal.

On May 22, Brooklyn Tattoo on Smith Street is throwing a party for the Brooklyn Bridge’s birthday the best way it knows how — by offering $28 tattoos of the fabled span.

The tattoo parlor threw a similar party last year (where tattoos were, naturally, $27) and inked nearly 70 skin versions of Roebling’s famous suspension bridge.

“I would say it’s the most tattooed homage to Brooklyn there is,” said Brooklyn Tattoo co-owner Adam Suerte, who got his own version on his neck for the bridge’s 125th anniversary. “I tattoo at least a half dozen bridges on people every month.”

For this special occasion, which comes two days before the 128th anniversary, tattoos will be done on a first-come, first-served basis, and those looking to take advantage of the deal can pick from several pre-drawn images that evoke the iconic skyline.

Brooklyn Bridge party at Brooklyn Tattoo [99 Smith St. between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street in Cobble Hill, (718) 643-1610], May 22. For info, visit www.brooklyntattoo.com.
