Dave on 7th notes that North Store Tattoo at 74 E. Seventh St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue closed down earlier this month...
Per Dave: "Completely cleared out and people are seemingly already redesigning the space."
Proprietor Rodrigo Melo left a message on the shop's website:
After 8 great years of tattooing on East 7th Street ... we have decided to close our shop.
I would like to thank all the great customers and friends that got tattooed with us.
Also a big thanks to all the tattoo artists that worked in North Star throughout the years.
He and his wife will be working out of a private studio in Brooklyn moving forward. The contact info is on the website.
The adjacent space at the address, the former David's Shoe Repair, remains on the rental market.
