WAYNE, N.J. — Tattoo Nation LLC has signed letters of intent to open two locations in the New York/New Jersey region, in addition to a lease the company recently signed for a location at Queens Center in New York City. The company currently operates one location within Willowbrook Mall in Wayne. The new locations are part of a nationwide expansion effort for the company; letters of intent have been signed for seven additional locations — four in Florida and three in Los Angeles. All of the locations will operate under the Inked brand. Tattoo Nation plans to open the stores in leading suburban shopping malls and upscale locations, in an effort to differentiate the brand from many independently owned tattoo studios.
