NYHC Tattoo is the brainchild of two of the most influential Lower East Side musicians. Vinnie Stigma of Agnostic Front and Jimmy Gestapo of Murphy's Law.

This legendary landmark opened in 1999 and has been a staple in the hardcore community for over 13 years.

In early 2010 Jimmy and Vinnie added new partners to the mix, Lars Frederiksen of the punk band Rancid, along with Albany icon Mike Valente.

NYHC Tattoo is a family run business, run by four Black'n Blue brothers. For Hardcore, by Hardcore, about Hardcore!
