Pizza being delivered to former tattoo shop on the Bowery

Looks as if the look vacant former home of Bowery Tattoo has a new tenant...


... signs just went up for Forcella — La Pizza di Napoli here between Bond and Great Jones...



As BoweryBoogie had reported, the folks behind the Vbar were looking to open a bar here two years back... And maybe a little competition now for McNally's Pulino's?

I don't think anyone thinks of Pulino's as a pizza place.

Am I the only person who wondered/wonders how so many tattoo shops stay in business? Are that many people permanently inking themselves on a regular basis?

True!

11:44, the tattoo parlors don't mystify me as much as the fortune tellers. How in the hell do these people get such primo real estate? I never see anyone in these shabby storefronts and even if they have clients, do you know how many $5 palm readings one would have to do to make rent? It makes me wonder if they are a front for a different kind of "palm reading," if you know what I mean!

Although they used to stay a lil' longer, tattoo parlors have a long history on the Bowery (my former next door neighbor):
