Port City Tattoo | Southern California Tattooing

Port City Tattoo originally started as a Long Beach Tattoo Parlor back in April of 2012. This area in Southern California has been viewed as one of the best places in the World to get high quality Long Beach Tattoos. In the spirit of expanding our unique Port City Tattoo brand, and spreading top-notch artistry through tattooing, we opened the doors to a Costa Mesa location in August of 2014.

Long Beach & Costa Mesa Tattoos

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.

Modern Sterilization Methods & A Clean Atmosphere

Both of Port City Tattoo’s locations use the most modern and up-to-date sterilization methods. The safety of our customers is of the utmost importance to us, as well as our tattooists. We go above and beyond to maintain a clean and safe tattooing environment. All you need to do is come in, get inspired, get comfortable and enjoy your tattooing experience.

Port City Tattoo Artists

Our tattoo artists each have over ten years of experience in a wide array of tattooing techniques. Some of the styles of Long Beach tattoos that we offer at Port City Tattoo include portraits, black and grey, traditional, realistic, lettering and Japanese designs, amongst a myriad of others. We have a total of eight artists on our staff that you may choose to work with.
