Started around 1976 by TATTOOIST MIKE BAKATY, FINELINE TATTOO N.Y.C operated 'underground' out of MIKE'S loft space at 295 BOWERY. In 1997 a 35 year ban on TATTOOING in the 5 borroughs of NEW YORK CITY was finally lifted, and TATTOOING could finally be practiced in the open once again. Given this turn of events MIKE, along with his son MEHAI who had joined him in the trade some years earlier, ventured to go public. In the winter/spring of 1997 they opened FINELINE TATTOO N.Y.C. in the form of a street shop.
Housing one of the bigest selections of HAND DRAWN FLASH in the world, FINELINE TATTOO N.Y.C is no longer the best kept secret in NEW YORK. Come on down and visit the crew.
Who I'd like to meet:
Tattoo-minded people. The unwashed masses. The unholy inked, and the fans of fine tattooing at its best. This is the real deal!
