I’m happy to see that 2015 is carrying the momentum of last year, with more new local businesses consistently popping up, in both Albany and Troy alike.
Next to join the roster is Ms. Dixie’s Tattoo, which has recently relocated from its original location in Troy, to 7 Hill Street, nestled in Troy’s original Little Italy neighborhood. The tattoo shop was founded in 2012 by Jessica Gahring, who appeared on TLC’s NY Ink. With the addition of artists Nick Reinert and Chris Conlon, I’ve seen some really spectacular tattoos come out of the shop since its been on my radar, and I highly recommend those in the market for a new tattoo to get in touch.
Ms. Dixie’s Tattoo will be hosting an official ribbon cutting with Mayor Rosamalia atÂ 4pmÂ in front of the new studio, with a reception to follow. The celebration will feature live music from DJ Kloud9, as well as the displayed works of photographer Tony Colasurdo. The shop’s gallery will act as another home to showcase the work of more local artists in the days to come as well, and is hosting its first gallery show in conjunction with its grand re-opening and Troy Night Out.
For more information about the re-opening party and to get acquainted with the shop’s talented artists, please pay a visit, either online or stop by the shop this Friday, beginning at 4pm.
