Go to Albany Modern Body Art on 16 Howard St.

Specifically, you can ask for Brian. He did mine and does AWESOME work.

I got mine done at Tommy Spaulding Tattoo on Central Ave, 628 Central Ave. I was very happy with Tommy and the work he did. I have no connection to the shop. Just a satisfied customer.

A *pancake tattoo*! (swoon)

The ankle, wrist or shoulder are good places to get a tattoo.

It's not in Albany, but the boys at Needlewurks in Saratoga are doing some amazing work.

I highly recommend Kara at Lark Street Tattoo. She's done two beautiful pieces for me.

Damn! So much for my totally unique tattoo idea.

I went to Lark Tattoo for some line work, and it turned out very nice.

T-Bone at Lark street Tattoo is THE BEST..

I have three pieces by Tom from Tom Spaulding Tattoo on Central. He's a pro!

i go exclusively to christian at dead presidents lounge on upper madison ave.

Another for Kara at Lark here.

Kara from Lark Tattoo. She's pretty amazing.

I highly recommend Rich at Lark Tattoo....he will definitely be doing all of my future work!

I really think that everyone at Lark Tattoo is professional and from what I have seen, exceptionally artistic. I have gone to Rich and I love (love, love) the pieces he has done for me, and Kara does fine work as well.

T-Bone or Kara at Lark Street Tattoo! All mine are from T-Bone and I wouldn't go to anyone else, but my friend's were done by Kara and she does great work.

For celtic work, Jay at All Star (Scotia) is hands down the best!! Illustrations and everything else, Devlin at Alectric City (Schenectady) has incredible attention to details!!

I love, love, love Geoff's work at Lark Tattoo. He is awesome, really talented, fast and does beautiful work. Lark Tattoo is the place to go, my friend.

When I used to bus-commute in another city, there was a similar smart card system and it was AWESOME. On/Off time was significantly decreased, so buses were even a little more timely. I hope this pilot goes smoothly because the faster this gets implemented, the better for bus riders. This is good news!
