Housed in our Columbia Avenue landmark The Velvet Building, Perspective Tattoo is currently on the cusp of undergoing a cosmetic and structural makeover similar to that undertaken on The Velvet’s exterior; while Velveteen landlord Andy Talbot tinkers with the burgundy frontage, Perspective Tattoo’s resident artist and owner/operator Sean Cooper is preparing to expand his second floor studio...
