Just got my 4th tat, first one from Tuff City. Greeted nicely, clean, professional and I LOVE the tat. NB did a great job. I'm getting tons of compliments about it. Will definitely go back. Excellent price, as well.

I love this spot. The guys are very knowledgeable and take pride in their work. They tell you why ideas won't work and how to make them work. I got my tattoo done by Busta. He was AWESOME! He creates the perfect atmosphere and is 100% committed and focused on you. It doesn't hurt that he is also VERY ATTRACTIVE! Can't wait to go back next week ;^)

During a trip to from California to New York, I stumbled across this shop. The art work on the outside of the building caught my attention. I thought, "If a business can put that much work into the outside of their building, they must have a passion for what they do." I walked inside and found that to be true. The staff was very professional and knowledgeable. CES was my tattoo artist and he put much thought and time into putting my idea on paper. He was more than accommodating when it came time to prepare me for my FIRST tattoo. I would recommend this tattoo shop to anyone. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that my tattoo was completely affordable. I've gotten nothing but compliments on my tattoo. It was a great first time experience!

I got my tattoo by Ces last year and I have to say my tat came out hot. Not only did Ces took his time with the actual drawing but made some changes to make it look even better. I got Saint michael on my arm and my tat got plenty of good compliments. Yo Ces, I will be seeing you soon.

I reluctantly made an appt with NB at the suggestion of another artist in the shop, who claimed he was one of the best @ cover-ups. NB was really professional & his attention to detail on my tattoo was very impressive. I spent about 5 hrs in there & although it was painful, his personality & horror movie action figures put me at ease, lol. I get constant compliments on the work he has done & what's even better is that no one can tell what he covered up...thank goodness! I am so proud of my tattoo that I no long cover it up with my hair & enjoy wearing tank tops as often as possible, which was something I was very uncomfortable with before. In response to the woman whose skin was falling off...the moment you walk out of any shop, the aftercare is now YOUR responsibility. I have 6 tattoos & am a huge tattoo aficionado...never in my life have I heard of someone taking good care of a tat & then just having their skin fall off. Something sounds very odd about that story & smells like Hennessey if you ask me. I did extensive research on this shop & that was literally the ONLY negative review I found, so what does that really say? I plan on getting more tattoo's in the future & will no doubt return to this shop, as corny as it sounds, they really changed my quality of life.

Great place for a tattoo , my husband got his done about 6 yrs ago by Dre and he did great work on him...the designs are great and the color still looks fresh as the day he got them done. And they were cheap. So who ever got bad tats there well your just dumb for not telling them while u were there. so that's your own faults.

I recently got 2 new tats at TUFF CITY done by E S. I fell in love with the tats as soon as i saw them. The entire TUFF CITY staff was very welcoming and helpful. The atmosphere is layed back and relaxed and the art around the shop is amazing. I'd recommend TUFF CITY to my friends.

I am one of many people who enjoy getting ink on my skin. I've about 3 tats that are not as good as the others. Big mistake going there until I was recomended to Tuff City Tattoos in the Bronx to one who is named Mitch. When I waked thru the doors OMG trains actual triains as there booths. It was an amaizing experence and I would reccomend everyone to go there.
