Shab Row Bistro Mixologist Alex Strange Shares His Ink and His Broadway Past
- "I wanted to keep it bold, so I mixed traditional Japanese imagery â€“ butterflies, a geisha, the dragonhead, and cherry blossoms â€“ with neo-traditional American tattooing."
- "It was inspired by an episode of No Reservations in which Anthony Bourdain created a graffiti artwork of a skull with crossed knives, which I switched out for martini glasses."
- "Thereâ€™s a little piece of receipt tape in the bottom left corner where I was going to have the artist ink â€œCall meâ€ or a fake phone number. But I had them keep it blank, so I could write down little notes for myself."
