Long Beach / Costa Mesa / Santa Ana

Long Beach Tattoos were first made popular by sailors enlisted in the Navy that were stationed in the area. After being away from home for several months, sailors turned to collecting tattoos as a source of entertainment, and also for bragging rights. Long Beach tattoo artists were generally in high demand and several became a part of the most elite and talented artists in our industry.
