Not Just ANY Brooklyn Tattoo Shop!


Tempted Ink™ was founded by brothers Joe & Mike Maldonado in 2014 with a mission to provide a comfortable, sterile and relaxing environment for the clients of Brooklyn, NY and the surrounding Tri-State area. We focus on any and all types of custom artwork, specializing in but not limited to: Lettering, New School, Traditional, Black & Grey, and Cover-ups. 

At Tempted Ink, we strive to provide quality services with the highest level of cleanliness and customer satisfaction. We do everything we can to accommodate our clients and meet their highest expectations. The staff is welcoming and laid back, providing customers with a comfortable, one of a kind tattooing experience. 

"Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell!"

We look forward to providing you with your next, or first piece of custom body art.

Mike Maldonado

Tattoo Artist, Shop manager

Born and raised in Bensonhurst Brooklyn blocks away from the shop, Mike has always had a passion for the arts and has been drawing since he was 11-years-old. He is a jack of many trades, but often finds himself coming back into the art world in one way or another. 

Creativity has always been his forte, as he has dabbled in music, painting, pyrography, and digital design (to name a few). He truly believes there is nothing worse than wasting a talent that could have such a positive impact on someone's life.

He apprenticed under his brother in 2014 when the shop first opened, and continues to develop his craft to give the best experience to his clients.

Hey Brooklyn, how ya doin'?


We are located on the border of Dyker Heights and Bensonhurst. This neighborhood, comprised mostly of Italian-American, middle-class families in southwestern Brooklyn, is where Tempted Ink calls home. We couldn't think of a better place to open up shop than where we were born and raised!
