Inkstop Tattoo has left Avenue A
Back in May, Eric Rignall, the owner of Inkstop Tattoo on Avenue A at 13th Street, announced that his shop would close by Aug. 1 after 21 years in business on this corner.
He recently moved out ... and now the corner space is vacant with a for-rent sign...
The asking rent is $7,000 per month, according to the listing, which notes that it's a "perfect space for office or retail. No cooking. Microwave is allowed."
In May, Rignall told me that the Ink Stop landlord had been fair with him "but market value for rent in the neighborhood is a bit too high in general to stay on top of things," he said. "Also, it is true that the new changes to the neighborhood in the last few years have dramatically reduced business in the area. A lot of people have moved out and there is not as much foot traffic as there was."
He will be working out of Long Island City now. You can find his contact info here.
