To get your Istanbul tattoo itch scratched Asmali Mescid is not necessarily known as the neighborhood you’d go to. It is known, however, for late-night bars, curbside alcoholic shot stands, and fresh popped popcorn carts trolling the small pedestrian streets. But peering through the street-level windows of the cracked European style buildings, one can find many different sights. This night I happened upon a make-shift tattoo salon, with a customer memorializing the night. I think it was closed by the following weekend.
