The Birthplace Of The Modern Tattoo Scene In New York City | Ink Expedition

  • Published on Oct 7, 2019
  • New York City is the birthplace of the modern tattoo scene. The art form was banned for nearly 40 years, from 1961-1997. We learned about the history of tattooing in New York City at Fineline Tattoo, the oldest tattoo shop in NYC. Producer Sydney Kramer gets inked by Sophie C'est La Vie at Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn.

    Tattoos are art. Very few people under the age of 65 look at tattoos with a negative predisposition today. That rebellious connection is long gone. Instagram has given rise to the next generation of mainstream celebrity tattoo artists - where skill and experience is trumped by social media notoriety and celebrity client lists.
