Today’s news:

The Brooklyn Bridge is forever — so get a tattoo of it

The only way to show true love for Brooklyn is to ink the deal.

On May 22, Brooklyn Tattoo on Smith Street is throwing a party for the Brooklyn Bridge’s birthday the best way it knows how — by offering $28 tattoos of the fabled span.

The tattoo parlor threw a similar party last year (where tattoos were, naturally, $27) and inked nearly 70 skin versions of Roebling’s famous suspension bridge.

“I would say it’s the most tattooed homage to Brooklyn there is,” said Brooklyn Tattoo co-owner Adam Suerte, who got his own version on his neck for the bridge’s 125th anniversary. “I tattoo at least a half dozen bridges on people every month.”

For this special occasion, which comes two days before the 128th anniversary, tattoos will be done on a first-come, first-served basis, and those looking to take advantage of the deal can pick from several pre-drawn images that evoke the iconic skyline.

Brooklyn Bridge party at Brooklyn Tattoo [99 Smith St. between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street in Cobble Hill, (718) 643-1610], May 22. For info, visit www.brooklyntattoo.com.
