description

According to Michelle Myles, tattoo artist Martin Hildebrandt established a shop on Oak Street in Manhattan in 1875, and it is believed this was the first permanent place of business for tattooing in the United States. Years after, tattooing was banned in the city from 1964 to 1997, and tattoo parlors operated secretively in the city. In 1997, after tattooing become increasingly popular, tattoo artists were licensed and the practice became legal again.
