Neon Sign at Red Rocket

Red Rocket Tattoo, located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, is the second incarnation of a world-renowned studio established by owner Mike Bellamy over 14 years ago.

After changing the studio name in 2006, Red Rocket Tattoo has grown in popularity and prowess, and now boasts a staff of fresh and highly talented artists as well as a few salty dogs to round out the bunch. Open 7 days a week, our style runs the gamut from super fine portraits to new school/old school adaptations to Japanese-influenced and custom ideas of all flavors.

Our artists come from many different art school backgrounds, completed degree programs and have studied and tattooed with the best of the best in studios and conventions around the world. Our tattoo work, paintings and drawings have been published in tattoo and art magazines worldwide and we have all participated in fine art gallery exhibitions.

Our artists are all independently contracted, professional tattoo artists and fine artists.  Each is licensed by the State of New York and have been trained and certified in blood-borne pathogens, cross contamination and sterilization.  We take all measures to insure a clean, sterile and comfortable environment for everyone.
