Bang Bang Tattoo, known for its celebrity clients and high price points, has tapped designer Jesse McGowan to create the interiors for its new shop.The two-level shop is located on Grand Street, in the heart of New York’s SoHo. Intended to become the studio’s main location, the parlour seeks “elevate the experience” of receiving a tattoo.
McGowan, who previously designed Bang Bang Tattoo’s brand identity, chose a monochrome palette for the interiors – alternating black and white finishes in various areas.
“Imbued with a stark sense of purity and permanence, the striking marble-clad two-level studio has broken new ground in how a tattoo shop can be envisioned,” said McGowan in a project description.Marble fixtures, such as the angular reception desk and benches in the lobby, contribute to the shop’s glitzy appearance.
After checking in at the reception desk, clients pass through a black glass tunnel that leads to the studio beyond.The tunnel is made of screens that display an immersive video installation that was designed, filmed, and produced by McGowan.
The tattoo studio itself is a long tall space, lined on two walls with workstations that artists can use for sketching and client consultations.When customers are ready to receive a tattoo, the artists installs the necessary tables, chairs, and equipment within the open-plan space.
A staircase made of black perforated metal leads to the basement, which is laid out as a lounge space. This serves as a place for employees and artists to relax, but also accommodates client consultations.McGowan said that the interiors, which are monochrome and feature many diagonal lines, are meant to reference the brand identity he created for the studio in 2013: a square cross framing the letters “BANG”.
