The shop will be open Tuesdays-Saturdays Noon-8pm. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are recommended. The closest subway stop is the Forest Avenue M train, which is a block from the shop.  If you are near the L train, you can transfer to the M at Myrtle-Wyckoff and go two stops to Forest Avenue or walk a half mile from the Myrtle-Wyckoff station (about 10 minutes).

The new year can’t come fast enough! Hope to see you all then.


Roxie Rotten Returns:

Roxie will once again be holding down the fort at Twelve 28. She will begin care-taking of our crazy-asses Jan 2nd and I couldn’t be more excited. Not only is she a wonderful shop manager, but she reminds me to eat like a normal human and, really, no one answers a prank tattoo shop phone call quite like Rox…wait, I shouldn’t’ve said that.
