The Staten Island Moment, Cont'd

New, 5 comments

Staten Island, the new greatest place in the world, is getting an NYC first: a tattoo museum. "The owner, known only as Dozer, has plans to create three tableaux in the 500-square foot space, with automated mannequins depicting tribal, ancient Japanese and World War II-era tattooing methods. Video and sound elements will add explanation and atmosphere to each scene." But who is this Dozer? "Dozer, a bear of a man with 52 tattoos, a horse-shoe mustache and an oversized gold Torah on his necklace chain, sits in the front of the store greeting other local characters and chatting with his 6-year-old son, an aspiring gynecologist."
