Kadillac Tattoo

Kadillac Tattoo
Established: 1995
Artists: Cosmo, Drew Rash, Erica Barfield, Matt Runks“First and foremost, we’re a neighborhood shop,” declares Cosmo, the owner of 13-year-old Kadillac Tattoo. “This ain’t no hipster hangout.” Located in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia, this clean, bright shop prides itself on being a mainstay of a neighborhood that has struggled to stay true to its blue-collar history, despite the chic shops and restaurants that have popped up. They’re obviously succeeding: “We’re now tattooing some of the kids of our original customers,” says Drew Rash, one of Kadillac’s artists.

Anything goes at Kadillac, which is also home to artist Matt Runks and fine-line expert Erica Barfield. “We’re in the business of getting along,” says punk legend Cosmo, who was a big part of the local music scene in the early ’80s and was featured in the documentary American Hardcore. “We’re all just a bunch of ornery old people trying to have a good time.”
