Best Tattoo Parlor Straight Out of 'Cry Baby' New York 2009 - Glamour Garage
To achieve the look of a real pin-up beauty—Bettie Page, say, or perhaps someone more current like Katy Perry—Williamsburg's Glamour Garage is your destination. This drag spot, sister salon to Hello Beautiful and led by stylist Rebecca Faye, recently joined forces with Patricia Field's place in Noho, which should automatically tell you something about GG's m.o.: unique and sexy. The two-story salon/tattoo parlor comes equipped with salon chairs made out of motorcycle seats, animal-print rugs, velvet sofas, and a green convertible split in half—you know, for atmosphere. The upstairs tattoo area boasts photos of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe. Quite cozy digs, in a dangerous sort of way, and the prices aren't too bad, either: Haircuts start at $50, color at $60, and extensions at $200, and tattoos are priced at the discretion of the artist. Now if only Johnny Depp would drop by.
