Daredevil Tattoo Unveils Flashy New Neon Signage on Division Street

In business nineteen years strong, Daredevil Tattoo bleeds Lower East Side. The ink spot debuted in 1997, the year the artform was finally re-legalized in New York City. Thanks to a 50% rent gouge at 174 Ludlow Street in 2013, ownership settled south of the border – 141 Division Street. This tattoo parlor is permanent, as they were able to purchase the store.

And now Daredevil christens the three-year-old location with some brilliance. Free of the shackles of that pesky sidewalk bridge – it had obstructed their storefront for a majority of the tenancy – the business unveiled flashy new neon signage. Silver fifties era flare.

The marquee reflects not only the tattoo parlor but the related museum co-founder Brad Fink curated over the last two decades.

Head over to 141 Division Street today for their traditional Friday the 13th discount – $13 per tattoo (select styles) plus a $7 tip.
