Cops are looking for a duo who robbed a woman inside a Queens tattoo shop over the summer.

According to police, at 7 p.m. on July 12 a 21-year-old woman was inside the shop, located at 133-46 37th Avenue in Flushing, when she was approached by an unknown man and woman. Once inside, the man pulled out an expandable baton and repeatedly struck the victim in the head and legs.
