I got my first tattoo at Empire State when they were located in Oceanside over 10 yrs ago. I love these people and this business. On this particular day, I did not have an appointment but my friend did (I was accompanying her). Last minute I decided to get a tattoo and they squeezed me in. The tattoo was simple and took about 10 minutes. This is my third Empire State tattoo and I'll never give it a second thought to get inked there. They are a clean, friendly, responsible, considerate, creative establishment. Read Less

By far the best tattoo studio i've ever been to. I had gotten one tattoo prior to finding Empire and once I found Empire I will not be going anywhere else for all of my future tattoos. Brittany is amazing, she's so sweet and makes you comfortable while you're there. The place is so clean and all of the artists there are the kindest people you'll ever meet. I have gotten 2 tattoos done by Brittany and I'm planning on coming for another very very soon. I will keep recommending Empire to everyone looking for a tattoo shop. Hands down the best place ever.

It has been over 10 years since I last got a tattoo at Empire. When I arrived, I was put in touch with Jared, and we discussed what I wanted. After a while we came to a consensus. We decided I would return in a few days to see what he sketched. When I came back, I was greeted by Tommy and Michele, who remembered me from all those years ago.  I saw the sketch from Jared and it was  better than I had envisioned it. Four hours later I left with a work of art on my chest Friendly, clean, professional and talented, I highly recommend Empire State Studio. Read Less

So happy I found this place! I recently got a piece on my shoulder from Jared and it's absolutely stunning. I couldn't be happier with it. I went in for a consult and gave him a few ideas of what I wanted and he was super receptive and threw in some suggestions that ended up being fabulous. I love that all the artists have other mediums, as well. They're really in it for the right reasons, not to just bang out generic pieces that you could get at any shop. Everyone's really friendly and outgoing, too. My first time in, Tommy came over and thanked me for coming in and we chatted for a couple of minutes. It made the experience so much better that I was joking and laughing with the artists instead of lying there focusing on the pain for three and a half hours. Highly, highly recommend the studio.

Thank you Tommy and everyone I had the pleasure of meeting at Empire State Studios!!! I have looked and visited shops all over my home town and some beyond and this studio by far is my top tier shop. I walked up a narrow stairway into a brightly lit, colorful, and one awesome spaced studio filled with friendly artists with smiles and art that can be seen from any part of the studio. I talked to the studio manager Tiera the day before and she was more then helpful to answer any questions that popped into my brain. I also go to meet Tommy Helm himself and I couldn't stop geeking out! He is super friendly and was more then accommodating to shake my hand and give me a hug. If you want a tattoo and a new artist who is friendly and will make your experience just all around awesome weather it's your first tattoo or not, this crew will not disappoint. Bobby was my first artist who got to add to my canvas, Thanks Bobby! I would and do plan on getting a piece done by everyone on their staff at some point in my life. Thanks again Empire and hope to see you again for more work. Read Less

I flew into NY from Minnesota for the main purpose of getting tattooed.  I was fortunate enough to have an appointment with previously scheduled with Marvin Silva... one of the finest artists and all around coolest people I have ever met.Marvin worked with me on my concept and came up with a design that far exceeded my expectations.  I sat for 2 consecutive days as he worked on my sleeve.  I couldn't be happier with my tattoo and my time at the shop.In addition to remarkable tattooing, the shop has a very cool atmosphere and the gallery space was filled with great pieces from various mediums. Shop manager Jeff was also playing some killer music so it was very comfortable during my sessions.  I was watching the other artists at work during my sessions and everyone in this shop is very skilled and brings their originality to the table.  I witnessed a lot of great work.If you are looking for a top shelf tattoo from some genuinely great people, look no further than Empire!

A diamond in the rough of tattoo shops.  Its worth the trip to Oceanside from wherever you are coming from. Their artists all seem to specialize in different styles, but each extremely talented and hand picked by Tommy Helm the shop owner.  Been coming here to Marvin Silva for probably 3 years now (I know Im late with a review but Im new to yelp) and there isn't anything he can't do.  The shop is definitely getting immensely popular now, since Tommy Helm appeared on Ink Master, and happened placed 2nd overall! Super clean, fun, and inviting shop.  You do get what you pay for, and here is not cheap.  Anyways, check out Marvin Silva for the best bio-mech creations on the east coast, and scope out Kevin McNutt for classic tradional artwork.

Thank you Tommy and everyone I had the pleasure of meeting at Empire State Studios!!! I have looked and visited shops all over my home town and some beyond and this studio by far is my top tier shop. I walked up a narrow stairway into a brightly lit, colorful, and one awesome spaced studio filled with friendly artists with smiles and art that can be seen from any part of the studio. I talked to the studio manager Tiera the day before and she was more then helpful to answer any questions that popped into my brain. I also go to meet Tommy Helm himself and I couldn't stop geeking out! He is super friendly and was more then accommodating to shake my hand and give me a hug. If you want a tattoo and a new artist who is friendly and will make your experience just all around awesome weather it's your first tattoo or not, this crew will not disappoint. Bobby was my first artist who got to add to my canvas, Thanks Bobby! I would and do plan on getting a piece done by everyone on their staff at some point in my life. Thanks again Empire and hope to see you again for more work. Read Less

I flew into NY from Minnesota for the main purpose of getting tattooed.  I was fortunate enough to have an appointment with previously scheduled with Marvin Silva... one of the finest artists and all around coolest people I have ever met.Marvin worked with me on my concept and came up with a design that far exceeded my expectations.  I sat for 2 consecutive days as he worked on my sleeve.  I couldn't be happier with my tattoo and my time at the shop.In addition to remarkable tattooing, the shop has a very cool atmosphere and the gallery space was filled with great pieces from various mediums. Shop manager Jeff was also playing some killer music so it was very comfortable during my sessions.  I was watching the other artists at work during my sessions and everyone in this shop is very skilled and brings their originality to the table.  I witnessed a lot of great work.If you are looking for a top shelf tattoo from some genuinely great people, look no further than Empire!

By Far, the BEST tattoo shop on Long Island. Each Tattoo artist is incredibly talented. Everyone is super friendly and very helpful. The place is super clean and steril. They also have art shows featuring different artists and different themes for each show. I go to Michele and I have loved everything she has ever done on me and my friends who I had go to her. If there is a wait, it's def worth it. Something that will be on you forever you can't rush. Read Less

A diamond in the rough of tattoo shops.  Its worth the trip to Oceanside from wherever you are coming from. Their artists all seem to specialize in different styles, but each extremely talented and hand picked by Tommy Helm the shop owner.  Been coming here to Marvin Silva for probably 3 years now (I know Im late with a review but Im new to yelp) and there isn't anything he can't do.  The shop is definitely getting immensely popular now, since Tommy Helm appeared on Ink Master, and happened placed 2nd overall! Super clean, fun, and inviting shop.  You do get what you pay for, and here is not cheap.  Anyways, check out Marvin Silva for the best bio-mech creations on the east coast, and scope out Kevin McNutt for classic tradional artwork.
