To merely call Mr. Kaves prolific is to understate his colorful career as an artist. The free-spirited owner of Brooklyn Made Tattoo came of age in the tunnels of the New York City transit system, where he began crafting elaborate graffiti murals before he hit his teenage years. These murals caught the attention of other local artists?not to mention the NYPD. As his persona grew, Kaves moved on to more legal forms of self-expression. He made a name for himself as an MC for the hip-hop group Lordz of Brooklyn and started crafting commissioned street art for companies such as MTV and Adidas and artists such as Beastie Boys, Metallica, and Everlast.
At his boutique tattoo parlor in Bay Ridge, Kaves continues to find new outlets for his creativity. When he doesn't have a mic or an aerosol can in hand, he expresses himself with tattoos that feature elaborate lettering and full-color imagery. Kaves and his team of incredible artists create lively tattoos six days a week at the shop.

Facials enhance features with gentle, sweet-smelling concoctions, and ear-piercing services add appropriate glint to kids' faces. For birthday parties, celebrants can arrive in the spa’s pink limousine before strutting down the runway in Sweet and Sassy’s glittery gowns.
Around the time he turned double digits, Damien Ramirez started drawing tattoo designs on family and friends. By 18, the self-taught tattoo artist had upped the stakes, tattooing himself and others with permanent ink. Since 2010, he's showcased his talents at Damm Nice Tattoos and Fine Art, where he covers human canvasses in customized designs that cover everything from exaggerated new-school cartoons to spiritual iconography. Damien can even tweak or enhance tattoos you already have by subtly modifying the design, rather than covering you in skin-colored ink. Besides the art he applies to bodies, Damien creates masterful fine art pieces which he sells from the studio.
