Since his trip to New York City’s Chelsea Market, where he got tatted in between meals, @JeffersonSoto who operates a studio in Miami’s #BuenaVista district, has been thinking about establishing a pop-up of this kind. “As a tattoo artist, we always want fresh ink on our bodies and so when I saw the opportunity at the Chelsea Market it was like a traffic stop for me. He thought, ‘let’s get something to eat and get tattooed’,” says Soto, who’s seen a steady flow of customers since he launched the pop-up.

The service is first-come, first-served, which may result in huge lines for latecomers, but he guarantees that everyone is happy to wait. They had a few of folks arrive, who had never been to the Market before and were so excited to wait that they became inebriated. In case you’re curious, the couple did conclude the night with new tattoos.

After you’ve signed up for the waitlist, one of the owner’s apprentices will walk you through the process and assist you in selecting a design from the book. They aim to keep them small so that everyone can participate; and it’s worked out well so far.

If you’re thinking about getting a tattoo at Time Out Market Miami, you’ve come to the right place. Arrive between the hours of 4pm and 9pm on Thursdays and Fridays, and noon to 8pm on Saturdays; and be prepared to wait. But don’t worry if there’s a wait, you’ve got various bars and cafes surrounding you!
