An art gallery and tattoo parlor that recently closed its West 10th Street location has re-opened in a storefront in the Tracy Inn on 11th Street.
The artist’s haven is at 6 W. 11th St., just off the corner of Central Avenue and 11th. The owner said the spot on the city’s main east-west artery offers the shop more visibility.
In addition to its top-flight tattoo work, Secret Sidewalk plans to host its numerous events and gatherings at the next-door Tracy Inn.
Hours are noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
