Au programme

We will meet at Daredevil Tattoo for a private viewing of the collection that includes artwork and machines from some of the earliest and most influential tattooers over the last 100 years. We will then walk through the Lower East Side and Chinatown discussing the rich immigrant history of the area and the notorious slum and gangland it became. We will walk through Chatham Square and up the Bowery where the first electric tattoo machine was invented and where the old time Bowery tattooers worked until tattooing was banned in 1961. Afterwards there's plenty of places to pick from for a Chinatown dim sum lunch (not included in the tour , there's also a vegan dim sum parlor around the corner).
Other things to note
The tattoo shop opens for business at noon. Artist are available for walk ins if you would like to get tattooed after the tour (not included in the tour) Michelle tattoos by appointment only.

Michelle is a tattoo artist and licensed NYC tour guide. She started tattooing on the Lower East Side in 1991 when tattooing was still illegal in NYC. In 1997 she opened Daredevil Tattoo with business partner Brad Fink who's collection of antique tattoo memorabilia is on permanent display as part of their tattoo shop. Michelle has researched and studied NYC's tattoo history and sees it as an important part of the history of their neighborhood that served as the gateway for NYC's immigrant past.

What a wonderful tour! Michelle is so warm and welcoming and knowledgeable. The flash on the walls is one-of-a-kind and you’ll see work that’s never been published done by pioneering tattooers. The walking tour is also fantastic—not only will you learn tattoo history, but NYC history. Want to see where the most dangerous corner in the US was? The oldest house on the Bowery? You’ll find out here. Also get yourself a penny souvenir, sticker, tattoo history map, t-shirt, or tattoo at Daredevil. It’s too affordable for how good it is. Don’t miss it...Definitely check it out!

The Tour with Michelle was gorgeous and a unique experience. For example did you know that tattoo artist at the beginning of the 20th century were often also "black eye specialists"? To find out what that means, join Michelle on her tour. Not only that she is an unostentious person with many knowlege of tattooing and the peculiar history of the art of tattooing in NY, she is also extremly competant when it comes to the bowery history. PS: Michelle, you'd get an extra star from us for the perfect weather, but for then again, the weather is beyond your control and programming extra stars is beyond our technical ability 😂😂😂. Thank you for everything, we've had a lot of fun

I really enjoyed my walking tour with Michelle. Her knowledge of the history of Tattoos and Tattoo studios in New York City is really extensive and incredibly interesting. The museum of Tattoo historical artefacts at Daredevil Tattoo is amazing. I would definitely recommend Michelle’s walking tour of the Tattoo history of New York City to any traveller coming to NYC.
