Can’t bring yourself to name your child Brooklyn (or maybe Graham Army Plaza), thinking there must be a less kitschy way to show your pride? Celebrate BK Bridge’s 128th anniversary on Sunday with a $28 tattoo of the landmark from Brooklyn Tattoo. The actual anniversary is May 24, but head to the Smith Street shop two days early at 1pm for a permanent branding of those limestone towers. It’s first-come, first-served, and last year the shop did 60-70 inks, so get your design bid in early on the selected images.
Keeping your bridge tribute to the boundaries of the bike lane? Buy a copy of the flash design sheet or a limited-edition T-shirt instead.
Need further inspiration for your Kings County crest? Check out the opening of the accompanying Urban Folk Art Gallery show May 20 from 7pm to 11pm featuring local art commemorating the Industrial World Wonder. And if you’re looking to get a tattoo of something not bridge-related, don’t forget to check out our guide on how to save on a tattoo in Brooklyn.
