This week was a fun one. Andy knocked out some stunning smaller pieces along with making progress on a huge back piece, and Phil made some beautiful work on two thumb-bones and secondaries. Check them out below!
Congratulations to Greg for graduating from his apprenticeship on Tuesday, we couldn’t be more proud of him! His hard work and dedication to the art of tattooing is outstanding and he definitely deserves it. He’ll have a website up soon with artwork and tattoos, so be on the lookout and either get a hold of him or the shop to make an appointment!
Another booked week, another week in review. Andy created some real beautiful pieces (some of my personal favorites), and Phil won Best Traditional at Hell City on Friday. Check it out!!
If you didn’t know, Greg Lahm is our apprentice here at Long Street Collective. For the past year, he’s been busting his ass to learn everything he needs to know about tattooing the right way. Check out some of his artwork below, and if you like what you see, you can view some of his tattoos so far on his instagram: gregorylahm
Phil has had quite the busy month in March; working on a huge back piece, knocking out some awesome shin pieces, and just the usual gorgeous color work. April is already off to a great start and the months are quickly booking up, so don’t wait up if you’d like to book an appointment!
March has been a busy month for Andy as he continues to create beautiful black line/dot work. From finishing a huge chest piece, to starting a huge back piece, Andy’s ready to see what April has in store. Check out a handful of favorites below if you haven’t seen them already, and don’t forget to stop by, say hello, and book an appointment!
Mandalas are a shop favorite at LSC. The word “mandala” is from the classical Indian language of Sanskrit. Loosely translated to mean “circle,” a mandala is far more than a simple shape. It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself–a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds.
Describing both material and non-material realities, the mandala appears in all aspects of life: the celestial circles we call earth, sun, and moon, as well as conceptual circles of friends, family, and community.
Another busy week here at LSC, full of awesome tattoos… Check out just a few of the many favorites done recently and if you like what you see, stay up to date with the artists:

Whew, it’s been a busy winter season here at Long Street! We’re quickly approaching our 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY (March 12th) and will hopefully be printing up a fresh batch of shirt designs for the occasion. Some big announcements coming in June, and one apprentice to hopefully be starting full-time as well. So stay tuned, lots going on at LSC.
In the meantime, check out the most current batch of new designs from Andy & Phil. Can you tell who created which piece?
