In 1883, the Brooklyn Grays were crushing it in their inaugural season, long before they went on to become the Dodgers, a connection was made for the first telephone call connecting New York and Chicago and a brand new throughway opened connecting Manhattan with Brooklyn. That, of course, was the Brooklyn Bridge, which turns 129 this month. In celebration, Brooklyn Tattoo on Smith Street is back with its third annual Brooklyn Bridge tattoo special: on Sunday, you can get some ink of the iconic landmark for just $29. You have to choose from the shops flash sheet, but more than 20 designs will be available (a few of which are above). The sale is from 1pm-7pm and is first-come, first-served, so get there early.
The weekend also includes the shop’s Brooklyn Bridge themed group artshow, where graffiti artists, illustrators, photographers, comic makers, painters, printmakers and more come to honor the Brooklyn Bridge. The show is from 7-11pm on Friday.
