The Gowanus Nite Market is BACK this Saturday March 16th! For this weeks theme, I'm drawing my specialty - comics! The comics will feature different "hidden gems" of Gowanus that bring vitality to the neighborhood and make Gowanus a destination spot. Today's comic characters are at Triple Diamond Tattoo at 257 3rd Ave. When you step in, you're surrounded by a myriad of curious taxidermied animals, skulls, horns, and peacock feathers. Definitely a quirky, hip, and inspirational environment for getting an awesome tattoo. The owners, Jon Jon and Shannon, are super friendly too! They opened shop in Gowanus about 7 months ago to bring an exciting new energy to the area.
If you aren't familiar with tattoos, the comic is referencing that you shouldn't drink alcohol before getting a tattoo because it thins your blood. Be prepared: get your tattoos this week before going to Gowanus Nite Market and enjoy tons of Brooklyn Brewery beer!
