California Gold Tattoo

writteninink22 in Stories

So many tattooers out there are doing so many wonderful tattoos. It can be addicting scrolling through endless images on watercolor or mandalas. You name it there’s a tattoo of it. I’ve always been a hoarder of tattoo pictures from just about any site that had them. What can I say? I love the art form. Writing for Tattoodo allows me to be a tattoo stalker with purpose. Now I don’t just gather pictures for my own inspiration, I sort through everything from prison tattoos to professionals with tattoos so I can spread inspiration to the Tattoodo readers.

I now follow and am followed on Instagram by several tattoo shops and tattoo artists which is great because it’s like instant inspiration. Creativity when it’s first born. Ink so fresh the skin is still red. During a late night scroll I came across a particular page that had picture after picture of amazing tattoos. The shop is called California Gold Tattoo and it is located in west Los Angeles. The artists featured in this article are The Architect, Pedro Balugo, John W Maclntyre, Dougie Mittz, and Pat Sweeney. Keep up the fantastic work guys. Now scroll through he talent for yourself.

@Genevieve Rose

I'm a follower of Christ who happens to be a writer and loves tattoos. My collection is growing, I'm officially in the double digits. If I was hardcore I'd have sleeves, one literary arm and the other biblical. Whether tattoos are main stream or back-alley I'll always enjoy the art form, particularly soft black and gray and script. I'm a fall kind of person who loves dogs. Follow me on Instagram @genevieverose1922
