The New York Islanders announced that they are going to partner with World Famous Tattoo Lou’s as the official ‘Inking’ shop for New York Islanders fans. This is the first time a professional sports team has ever brought tattoos to their fans.
Tattoo Lou’s, who is a World Famous Tattoo shop, will set up a station offering ink along with body-piercing station within the Nassau Coliseum concourse for the 10 Islanders home games this coming season. The station will also provide Islanders body jewelry and tattoo-inspired Islanders t-shirts and sweaters.
Lou Rubino, President of Tattoo Lou’s had this to say of the deal, “This partnership with the Islanders is a great fit for us and it’s a wonderful benefit to be a part of the Islanders team.” Mr. Rubino continued to say, “This is another victory for the tattoo industry. For a long time, tattoos were frowned upon, but now, we’ve become more and more mainstream. One of the main things I love about this partnership is the history the Islanders have. My dad opened his first shop in 1958. We’re a part of Long Island history-just like the Islanders.”
“Our team is trilled to bring another Long Island institution to the Coliseum, especially one from such a unique industry,” said Justin Johnson, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships & Marketing for the Islanders. “Tattoo Lou’s is an innovative brand with a creative vision. They’re a great fit with our energetic team on the ice and our youthful fan base around Long Island”
