Originally involved in construction and real estate, David Roig saw the economic crisis as an opportunity to take a new path in life and pursue his passion: tattoos. In the Eixample, next to a high-end martini bar, Stay Gold is not your traditional dark, crowded tattoo place. It is light, open, and rather elegant. The location was decided upon after a long period of searching and a little luck, and has a lot to do with the ideals behind Roig’s parlour. “I wanted a parlour that a businessman like me could go to, park his car and feel comfortable sitting down to get a tattoo,” said David. And judging by Stay Gold’s varied clientele of teenagers, business people and even a father and daughter, David seems to be getting it just right.
