Getting tattooed is not always THE most comfortable occasion. In this case, our good friend Shawn who usually takes sessions like a champ…Took it like a chump…
But it’s the finish product that truly matters, the inside of the arm is not always the best area to get tattooed, especially when hearing your boy whining about when the tattoo will be finished…
Shawn: “Are we there yet? Do you really have to do that? Can we save the white for the next time?…Riverside in the house!”
Jose: “Homie…lemme do my job.”

“…I’ve been tattooing and doing art for 17 years straight now. It all started just to pass the time in school, you know to get through my English or Biology class, nothing serious. But a series of unfortunate events changed the course of my life…That’s when I found the passion to really draw, following with tattooing…The old school fineline prison style tattooing…”

At this past Nationals Tattoo Convention, we had the utmost pleasure of being in the company of the tattoo world’s most historic legends. One such in mind was Lyle Tuttle.
Lyle Tuttle opened his first infamous shop in 1960. Lyle has been almost solely responsible for bringing tattooing into the main stream. The subject of numerous documentaries on tattooing, magazines, and working on celebrities, turned Lyle to a working success. As tattooing emerged from an underground art form to the mainstream, Lyle worked with the San Francisco Department of Health to come up with modern and standardized techniques for the sterilization of tattooing equipment…
Lyle Tuttle circa 1976.
