I've been eyeing Jay's work on instgram for a while now, and having moved to New York I decided to finally get a tattoo. It was sort of a spontaneous decision– but I emailed jay (its listed on his instagram) to see if I could come in for a consultation and he replied fast and I went over to koreatown in a few hours. He's extremely friendly and answered all questions that I had. I am terrible at explaining what I want, but Jay took what I said and gave me my best options. He gave me a price and I decided to go for it– and since he got a cancellation i got tattoo'd right after I decided to get it done! Since I got my tattoo on my rib, he put up a shield to give me some privacy so I could roll up my shirt. He then told me what he's doing, and told me what I had to do so that he can tattoo properly. And occasionally asked me if I was doing okay (so nice so great). The tattoo is absolutely amazing and the lines are so clean. I'm glad I came to Jay and nowhere else. Definitely check him out and Kevin they're both extremely talented. It is a bit tricky finding this place, but if you go onto google maps you can look at it from Street View. They have a sign that says Black Fish Tattoo– go into the mobile store and up the stairs. The decor is also A+ Thanks so much!!!

I went to see Jason for my fourth tattoo and I could not be any happier with how it turned out. His attention to detail was wonderful; he went over the entire tattoo twice, with particular attention to the lines and little details. I highly appreciate this because the tattoo has only gotten more beautiful as it has healed. I've had bad experiences before with entire words or lines disappearing as the tattoo heals and the ink didn't take but that was not the case this time. My tattoo far exceeded my expectations and I was so pleased with the cleanliness of the studio and the reasonableness of the cost. If I'm ever back in New York city, I will be going back to Black Fish.

After years of searching (7yrs), I decided to come to Black Fish tattoo to get some work done, the shop also has part of its portfolio on Instagram. All I can say it's one of the best desicions I've ever made. Kevin, the owner, was the artist I was working with. From the I initial phase of planning out the tattoo to the 3 months that followed of actually tattooing it on my body, he was an absolute professional. The design I envisioned was a piece that would cover my back entirely. Kevin gave invauable input on the design of the piece and planned out step by step how he was going to make it a reality. This definitely put me at ease since it was my first time with a tatto so big. His attention to detail is immaculate, the final product came out better than I thought it would. It's all the little things such as a subtle touch of black ink here and there that puts depths of field on the tattoo, making it more realistic. Throughout the process Kevin made sure I was comfortable and relaxed since nervousness and tension just makes his job harder. It was a pleasure to come into the shop to get work done and I also looked forward joking around with Kevin as he tattooed me. Bar none this is a great tattoo shop. Kevin, as well as the artist there, are open and friendly. More importantly they are some of the best artists I've ever seen. I'll be coming back here in the future for more ink that's for sure.

My girlfriend had been wanting to get some sort of tattoo on her forearm since she's only had lower body tattoos done. We're from Chicago so tattoo parlors are aplenty, but I managed to convince her to get a tattoo while we were in NY for our 1 year. We managed to find Blackfish and after looking through some portfolios and sleeping on it, my gf decided this was the place. Jay is the man. We walked in the morning of our departure flight into the shop at 12 and Jay said sure! Leave your number and I'll call you when I'm done with my current customer. At 130p we recieved the call and we were on our way! Totally professional, talented, detailed, and super nice (I could go on), Jay talked to her about specifics and told us cost up front. It looks amazing and I'm surprised this place isn't more popular??? IT'S OK, I'll just keep Jay all to myself.
