I have to admit some of these comments are ridiculous, and I??ll tell you why? I have been going to Planet New York Tattoo for over 10 years, (both of my arms are sleeved, and my back is fully done). When I was researching shops 10 years ago I took the obvious into account; talent, cleanliness, professionalism, ect. After visiting many shops, I chose PNY. Thank god I did.

For the people who say this shop is dirty?! Walk in first thing in the morning, or walk in around closing, it reeks of PineSol and Bleach. Watch when they clean up after a customer, or prep for a new customer ?? The entire area is cleaned, then sprayed down with some chemical to kill anything possibly lingering. This shop uses hospital grade sterilization on all machine parts and disposable ink caps and ink, grips, tubes, and needles. (If you don??t know what these things are, you should learn about tattooing before you get one!) If you want to see all these things, just ask them, they??ll happily show you! I know other shop in the Hudson Valley that will re-use things. These artists are CERTIFIED in blood born pathogens, disease control, and other health related topics ?? they do this for their knowledge and your protection and safely. These men do not want whatever disease you may be carrying. Not only are they keeping a sterile environment for you, but for themselves too! Calling this shop dirty is just a silly statement to make.

As for price ?? A cheap tattoo is not a good tattoo. Sadly most people who get a tattoo really do not know what they are looking at, quality wise. You have a tattoo for your entire life; it is on your body forever. Is this something you really want to get on the cheap? You think $300 is too expensive for something you??ll have forever? You??ve probably bought a cell phone that price, of which you??ll only have for two years. Lets assume you are 25 years old and you??ll die at 75. That means you??ll have that tattoo for 50 years. Lets also assume this tattoo that you??ll have for 50 years cost $300. This means that over the course of 50 years, this tattoo cost you less than two pennies a day. WOW, you??re right. That is clearly way too over priced for a piece of custom art that you??ll have for eternity. Are there cheaper shops in the area, absolutely! Is the quality of the tattoo just as good, not even close! I??ve been in the shop enough to see people come in with horrible tattoos that they are now asking PNY to fix. Ah yes, now it??s even more expensive because you??re doing it twice. Be smart the first time. If you want a cheap tattoo, don??t go to PNY. If you want a good tattoo at a fair price; then by all means, check them out.

As for the attitudes of these guys, I??ve grown to know them all very well. They are the nicest and most professional bunch you??ll ever meet. I see all the time people have issues with them? why you may ask? People go in there demanding things that can??t be done. Just because you brought in some crappy pencil drawing your friend did, does not mean it can be tattooed. Most people get angry when they are told what they want, needs to be changed a little, maybe made larger, or whatever? Personally, I would want the professional to tell me the truth. Are you going to go to a doctor and tell him how you want your surgery performed, or are you going to take his word that he knows what he is doing? These guys are no different. You want to see them pissed off and fast, ask them to put out garbage work. They won??t do it, and you??ll be quickly asked to leave. They are not a**holes, they are proud. BIG difference.

Before you negatively comment on a business, a person, or anything in general - make sure you have an ounce of knowledge on what you??re actually talking about.

The problem with these guys are that there business is right across from a college so they dont care about repeat business. They are way overpriced. The work is good, but if your a first timer they will take advantage of you. Very shady too, especially if you caught on to them ripping you off. If you like getting ripped off, go here

I've been going here for a few years now and I'm more impressed by this talented group of guys everytime I walk through the door. Great people, even better artists and you will definetly not get ripped off. They take their time with you too make sure you get exactly what you want. Very clean, professional and friendly!

I just went with a group of friends to get piercings today for their Friday the 13th sale. The people were amazingly nice and funny, everything with the piercings were completely sterile, and all of our piercings look great (2 sets of lobes, one industrial, and one lip). I would highly reccomend them to anyone!

My review is about the piercing portion part of the shop, not the tattoos. I witnessed the female piercer use a cork AND clamp to pierce a septum (basically, she was trying to hold a clamp, cork, and needle with two hands). This resulted in the piercing coming out very crooked. In my opinion, anyone who mixes a freehand and clamp technique should NOT be fit to pierce. Also, she did not check veins well, nor did she shine any light on the area during the entire process. The prices are cheaper than competitors in the area, but the piercing will look cheap as well.

I have been going to this shop for 8years now. It's a clean environment with cool guys who do amazing work. Every time I go back is better than the last. All the guys there are top notch artists who have an amazing sence of color, detail, and sizing. Sag from that shop did a half sleeve for me and I get an insane amount of complements on it! If you want great work go here

Planet New York is absolutely amazing. They are phenomenal artists and they are truly great guys but will not put up with your bull, so watch how you treat them because they aren't push overs. I've been pierced there and my whole family has been tattooed there. Every piece they do is mind blowing. We are friends with everyone there but are especially close to Jerry and John. Jerry even gave me my first car! And it is not even CLOSE to being grungy. It is without a doubt the best shop around, and it's currently in the process of being redone - the best shop just got better.

I recently had a tattoo done by a different shop and to be honest, it is in need of help. I was considering using this shop however; I draw the line at being ridiculed by a bunch of little boys in front of an entire room full of people. There is a way to deal with the public and apparently the boys were absent that day!

I've had 3/4 of my tattoos and all of my body piercing done here. It is the only place I go now even though there are several parlors closer to me. I've never had a bad experience with these guys. They are very talented and while they may cost more than other places you get what you pay for. The place is very clean. I recommend them to everyone who asks about my tattoos. John is my personal favorite, but you better be willing to make an appointment if you want to see him.

I have had 4 tattoos done here without any complaints to speak of. They all turned out so well that my husband, sisters, and several friends have also gone there to get their tattoos done.Not one of them has ever said anything negative about them, the shop or anything that has gone on there. I will continue to go to planet n.y to get all my work done. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

I have never been treated so badly by a group of KIDS before because lets be honest that's what they are. After storming out because none of them could wake up for work on time or get their acts together because they were most likely too hungover I was told good luck finding a place as good as them. I ended up going to a man that has been tattooing for 30 years and guess what...he was BETTER, CHEAPER AND NICER!!! So if you want to run into a bunch of punks you have no respect for anyone this is your place to go. Word of mouth spreads quickly and they made a major mistake treating me so badly.

I'm a winp when it comes to pain. My tatoo artist was John C. He was excellent. My first tattoo came out way better than planned. Then he did my second one. Love It Much!!! I'm coming back once I think of another design. Plus I seen an artist do some great portrait work there too.

I have 5 tattoos by this place and the first one came out great! The next 3 i had done at the same time and the one on my neck, is very splotchy and i have one on each wrist and they were faded within two months and several spots were missed in the shading. i've also had piercing done there and the one became severely infected even after following the cleaning instructions. i would not recommend them to anyone

i have close to 80% of my body tattooed by about 20 different artists,so its safe to say that i know what im talking about. my last 7 tattoos were all done by several artists at planet n.y. and i am thoroughly thrilled with their work! hands down the only tattoo shop in the area worth looking into.
i do agree that if you go in their with the wrong attitude, you will get eaten alive...those guys take their work very seriously, and can smell a moron a mile away. bottom line, check out their myspace, and you will understand.
eyebrow piercing? is it 1994 again? or do you play bass for a trendy emo band?

This is by FAR the best tattoo shop around. There is NOTHING grungy about it! The artists there are top notch, I have many tattoos done by Planet New York and it's the only place I'd go! In my opinion if you had a problem there, it's because you're an idiot. Idiots don't do well with that group of guys!

This tattoo shop is pretty grungy. Which is not something you want to see when you walk into a place. I got my eyebrow pierced here, and I was left with a scar and multiple infections, even though I followed the cleaning and caring instructions to a "T".
