Best Tattoo Shop In California: Why Mr. Inkwells Is The Top Rated Tattoo Shop In California 

California is the birthplace of tattoos in the United States. Southern California to be specific. Sailors, outlaws, and eccentrics, would start a new phenomena on the Pike in Long Beach, CA that would eventually sweep the nation and become almost commonplace.

This new phenomena that would slowly sweep the nation was tattoos. 

Don't get me wrong, tattoos have been around for ages. The 5300 year old “iceman”  Ötzi had over 50 tattoos covering his mummified body.  But, tattoos as an American phenomena, more specifically the American tattoo shop, began right here, in southern California. 

The first tattoo shops that started serving customers back in the old days were far different than their modern counterparts. However, they still survived, thrived, and made their impact on America in the same ways:

Great Tattoo Artists

A Great Experience 

And Great Clients
