The New York Islanders announced today the addition of Tattoo Lou’s to their sponsor group.
“Our team is thrilled 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 has become the official tattoo shop of the New York Islanders Hockey Club marking the first time a professional sports franchise has ever designated an official tattoo shop.
“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,” said Lou Rubino, President of Tattoo Lou’s in a statement.
Tattoo Lou’s will set up a tattooing station on the Nassau Coliseum concourse at each of the team’s 10 home games. Two tattoo artists and one professional body piercer will be present to help fans achieve the art they want. The tattoos will average about $60. Tattoo Lou’s will also sell Islanders-centric body jewelry and tattoo-inspired Islanders t-shirts and sweatshirts.
Additionally, Tattoo Lou’s will create an Islanders-inspired mural on the concourse, using the team’s logo and tattoo artwork.
