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?
We had a blast at the Philly tattoo convention. Thanks to everyone who came by for new art or even just to say hello. And a special thanks to our friends who brought very special gifts that now adorn the shop. Much love!
Next week from Wednesday-Monday, the tattoo shop will be closed. Our crew is super excited to take part in this year’s Philly Tattoo Convention! The boys are pretty booked already, but hope you can come by and say hi!
In honor of Sailor Jerry’s birthday yesterday 1/14, Phil created these awesome pieces for a few lucky clients.
