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.
Kicking off the new year with a few really beautiful pieces.
Maybe it was the tattoo conventions, press, guest artists, Wednesday art nights, Russian Prison Day, birthday parties, folks getting the LSC eyeball tattooed, new families, big projects, small projects, basement band practices & screenprinting, tarot readings, the swag that found new homes, working with a new apprentice, or just the sheer talent of Andy & Phil that made 2013 such an amazing year for Long Street Collective.
We’ve been open for just 9 months and couldn’t be more grateful for all the support and love from our friends and clients. So here’s to you…thanks for making the dream of the Collective a success in 2013! Below are just a handful of the year’s highlights, enjoy!
