This Sunday, Brooklyn Tattoo on Smith Street honors the Brooklyn Bridge's 127th birthday by offering $27 tattoos—but only of the bridge. "Pick from several flash (pre-drawn) images that evoke the spirit that has defined New York's iconic skyline," explains their website. "Tattoos will be done by several of the Brooklyn Tattoo staff on a first come, first serve basis. Also, for those not brave enough to commit ink to skin, signed and numbered copies of the flash design sheets will be available for purchase as well as limited-edition Brooklyn Bridge event t-shirts."
