Owner and artist Mark Mahoney has been on the ink scene in L.A. for decades. From underground punk in the ’70s to the black and grey movement of East L.A. in the ’80s to the mainstream popularity of tattoo art in today’s Hollywood circles, he can do it all. The artists here are self-proclaimed “godfathers of black and grey,” but you can find a variety of styles here—East Izhar “the Asian Typhoon” picked up his signature style in Singapore and has more than a decade of work under his belt. Appointments are made by phone only here (please no three-page emails with photos attached—though you can come in for a consultation), and walk-ins are welcome.
