The Bullseye Tattoo shop at 282 New Dorp Lane is an offshoot of a Web-based business with an established – and somewhat unusual – niche in the tattoo industry.
Launched in December, the shop is a brick-and-mortar complement to BullseyeTattoos.com, which was founded in 2002.
The online firm creates, sells and distributes its own original designs to tattoo shops and individual consumers.
Tattoo-studio owners log onto the site to purchase “tattoo flash, (sheets containing a collection of tattoo designs, arranged in sets), which are part of the ‘tools of the trade’ for tattoo artists,” said company co-founder Victor Modafferi.
Individual consumers seeking tattoo illustrations also visit the Web site.
“We are experts in the creation of tattoo designs and running a business around it,” Modafferi said of himself and his business partner, Eric Iovino.
