A conversation with two of NoHo’s luckiest tattoo artists

Cheryl Napolitano and Patrick MacDonald talk all things tattoo

Patrick MacDonald and Cheryl Napolitano are tattoo artists at Lucky’s Tattoo and Piercing, one of Northampton’s premier body modification shops. They each hail from Connecticut and have their fair share of tattooing experience. Here they talk about what inspired them to pursue their profession, which tattoos mean the most to them (that they’ve given and received) – and even share advice for those plotting their next tattoo.
