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.
