Best Place to Get a Tattoo by an Artiste - 2011
Eazy Street Gallery - CLOSED
[Redacted] — one of Miami's most notorious graffiti artists, hounded by police investigators for two decades — is known to ink here, and his work on skin is as clean, vibrant, and creative as the rich "vandalism" he leaves on highway signs and abandoned buildings throughout three counties. The gallery where he works, which holds graffiti and photography exhibitions in a big, comfortable studio adjacent to the tattooing area, is what Wynwood is supposed to be all about: gritty in origins but polished in presentation. [Redacted] is indeed an artiste, a title that comes with all inherent flakiness, so getting a tattoo from him might require a bit of legwork and patience. And while we're guessing [Redacted] wouldn't want his tag printed here, mention this award when you stop by the gallery. We've dropped enough clues to get you started in the right direction.
