Opening today, JonBoy’s tattoo shop at Moxy Times Square has been completely designed and customized to reflect his personality and interests. The space evokes a feeling of home, adorned with one-of-kind designer keepsakes, including his recognizable Gucci tattoo table, exclusive items from Supreme and Gucci Ghost, and funky neon lighting to indicate when he is on-duty. In familiar JonBoy fashion, an Instagrammable curtain backdrop provides an epic photo moment for clients to show off their new ink.
JonBoy’s decision to relocate his studio to Moxy Times Square stems from his inherent interest in hotels, instilled at a young age while going on frequent road trips with his family and staying at multiple hotels. Through his travels from childhood to now, he has become a true expert, deeming himself a ‘hotel junkie’ who is always looking for new and exciting hotspots. After staying at Moxy Times Square while traveling in and out of the city, taking one-off appointments in the hotel’s guest rooms, he was inspired to move his shop to the hotel.
Drawn to the hotel’s aesthetic and proximity to Times Square, as well as his favorite karaoke bars in Koreatown, JonBoy says, “When I used to think about living in New YorkI would always think ‘Times Square’. The circus-like amusement of the neighborhood and Magic Hour, Moxy’s rooftop bar, fits perfectly with the history of tattoo culture and I want to ensure my clients get an experience that feels as iconic and memorable as the location.”
With regular clients including Kendall Jenner, Hailey BaldwinJustin Bieber, Travis Scott, Zayn MalikPost Malone, G-Eazy and more, JonBoy’s new tattoo shop will give locals, guests and customers all over the world a chance to see and experience the work of one of the most notorious tattoo artists in the country.
Mitchell HochbergPresident of Lightstone and developer of Moxy Times Square adds, “It’s a fantastic opportunity to provide our guests the unique experience of engaging with an integral piece of pop culture and art in the heart of Bar Moxy. Nowhere else can someone walk into a hotel’s lobby and see people from all walks of life receiving tattoos from an artist like JonBoy.”
