Cutting Edge is AMAZING – I had my whole right arm and lower half of my left arm done on multiple visits, each time i was very pleased with the staff and the artists as well. The shop itself was spotless and I did get and ear peircing there aswell, the peircing area was equilly as well kept, it has since healed very nicely adn the jewlery i got there did NOT cause an infection for me. My tattoo's were done by Jayson who did and AMAZING job on everything! The price was very reasonable and totaly worth every penny! I will DEFF get more work done there. I always recomend this shop and artist to anyone who asks me.
BEST Place in NYC for Tats – I've got a few other tats at other shops thoughout the country and came here looking for some wording done on my back. These guys were very professional and the place is SPOTLESS clean. They helped me pick out the font, and the artists are incredible. If this would be your first tattoo, I would definitely recommend this place. I was told at other shops around the city that it would cost me over double what I got charged there. They don't try to rip you off and make a buck and are true to the art. I will DEFINITELY be back soon.
Great ear pirecing! – I got my earlobes pierced a week ago today and I have not experienced a problem thus far. When I went into the shop, I thought that it would be more expensive than in my town, but it actually turned out to be $15 cheaper! Tony, the piercer, was very precise and made sure to get the piercings even. They gave great tips and thorough cleaning instructions. I have scar tissue in my left ear from previous botched piercings that ended up closing up and Tony somehow pierced around it! All around, they were very informative, clean (and I'm a neat freak), and precise. I enjoyed my experience, and I would refer them to anyone who asked!
Beautiful Tat, Terrific Guys – I got a tattoo by Jayson today - an ambigram of my niece and nephew's names on my leg. Jayson did an impeccable job - solid, clean lines with just the right amount of shading and perfect placement. His advice to go with shading instead of all black was spot on. The tattoo was virtually painless (yes, for real) and bloodless. I had a great time talking to Jayson and his coworkers as the tat was being done. I will definitely be back!!
PS - the shop is very clean and welcoming, and of course in an awesome neighborhood. Thanks for a great experience!
Great Studio, Amazing Service and Friendly Staff – I am a regular customer. I had 2 of my tattoos (my most recent ones) and 4 piercings done at Cutting Edge.
When my first piercing didn't seem to heal properly the owner Adam and the piercer Chris helped me find the cause and the right jewelery. It turns out I am allergic to Nickel and can only use industrial strength surgical steel jewelery.
Just as a note gold has nickel in it too and might cause infection like reactions.
Cutting Edge and all the staff working there are amazing ! I recommend them to all my friends on a regular basis !
guaranteed service – we keep all records on every individual who gets pierced or tattooed at our establishment. We investigated this incident with our piercers but there was no such incident of this nature as this person claims. I do ask this person to stop by our studio if he/she had their piercing done here. We do stand by our products and most of our customers know if there is ever a problem with our jewelry, we do always replace it for free.
all our 14k gold jewelry is made here locally and are not fake.
we never suggest to our customers to use hydrogen peroxide or alcohol to clean their piercing.
AT YOUR OWN RISK – make a long story short, got my ears pierced two more holes above my earlobe and hell ensued. The bootleg gold they gave me, caused an infection. I go back, tell them the problem, instead of it being free, i cough up $40, for new earrings, that he says is guaranteed to not cause an infection. Guess what i got again? Living on peroxide and alcohol, so my ears dont fall off.
Jon Jon is Fantastic! – I had my tattoo done with Jon about a week ago. This was a bigger tattoo than I have ever gotten before. I made an appointment and Jon was there, on time and ready for me. He worked on the art on my back for over two hours. Not only was he friendly and made me feel comfortable, but everyone else who works there came in periodically to check how I was doing.
I gave jon an idea of what I wanted but gave him creative control and he did such a wonderful job. I love my tattoo and I get so many compliments on it.
THANKS JON!!! (last saturday, sunflower tattoo)

A vast loft space in the West Village houses a creepy art gallery, body art jewelry shop and some of Manhattan's most trusted inkers. – In Short
Part art gallery, part tattoo parlor, Cutting Edge Body Art is an enormous loft-sized hub for the macabre in the West Village. A floor up from the street, and thus removed from the cacophony of traffic, CEBA is weirdly relaxing. You can kick back on the couch and flip through artists' portfolios or wander the room and check out whatever slightly unsettling art they have hung about. Artists like Jon Jon and Jayson are well-regarded in the ink world, and will openly discuss ideas for personalized pieces.
