Even after all the ink that has been spilled into bodies over the past several decades, a tattoo remains stubbornly indicative that the bearer is a badass. Of course, that doesn’t mean a tattooee-to-be must seek out some grimy fellow named Rusty who wields a needle to match. Far from it. To the benefit of all, the proliferation of tattoos has, in turn, brought hygienic advances and ever-sweeter environs in which to get inked. The enormous Wooster Street Social Club in Soho offers an ideal mix of street cred and class, with an in-house team of inksters that draws followers from around the nation. The space doubles as a gallery that hosts awesome shows featuring young and talented artists, some of whom tattoo right there in the facility.
