If you’re a celebrity, you’re not going to let just anyone tattoo you, and a slew of famous folks all choose to go to the same place when it's time to get some ink. So, I bet you want to know how to book an appointment at Bang Bang NYC, because if this place is good enough for the likes of Rihanna, Cara Delevingne and Kylie Jenner, then it’s good enough for the rest of us, right? Precisely!
Bang Bang isn’t your average tattoo parlor, either, because only the best will do for celebrity clientele. With talented artists such as Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy doing the inking and a sleek, private studio, this setting provides A-listers with the best treatment they could ever receive while, you know, being poked with a needle.
As you might have guessed, it’s a little bit of an involved process to book an appointment here. They receive a lot of traffic, but that’s just a part of being the place to get a tattoo, you know?
First, you need to scroll through the artists on Bang Bang’s website and get familiar with their work. Then, you need to select the artist you’d like. When setting up an appointment, you need to have a strong idea of what you want tattooed. You can call, email or stop by the shop to explain what design you’d want. Finally, have a photo reference of the design and dates you’d be available for an appointment.
Jenner finally revealed the tattoo she got from the studio, and if you'd like to be able to brag about a tattoo from here, too, you need to book appointments in advance, especially if you want a particular artist. They book no more than two to three months in advance, and "Bang Bang" himself is usually booked out a couple of months, according to the website.
That's right, Delevingne's infamous lion finger tat is the work of Bang Bang's studio.
The parlor is a favorite of RiRi's, and this girl knows her ink.
And if it's good enough for them — it would do for me, too. Now, just to schedule an appointment...
