Williamsburg, Brooklyn's Flyrite Tattoo opened in 1996 (one year prior to the legalization of tattooing) by tattoo legend Elio Espana- and has remained a prominent name in the New York tattoo scene ever since.
After taking the reins in 2010, Steven Huie has done nothing but justice to the legacy of Flyrite Tattoo. With an incredible amount of respect for his craft, an amazing team of multi-faceted artists, and a huge smile on his face- Huie continues to show us what it means to maintain the integrity of high quality, no-nonsense tattooing and keep the tradition of alive.
Huie's longtime friend, vocalist of the band Antidote and the brains behind The New York Hardcore Chronicles, Drew Stone, put together this awesome video celebrating Flyrite's 20th anniversary. To hear more about the shop and it's successor, check out the video below.
