Hollywood Tattoo has been in business since 1992. We designed the facility with the intent of giving people something different in a tattoo studio. We wanted to get away from the stereotypical cookie-cutter shops of the time. We wanted people to have an experience, not just get a tattoo or piercing and it had to be a great one!
We also wanted the shop to be visually pleasing, as well as an artistic wonderland. As a result, our shop is an olde world pirate themed shop. The kind of place ye might have walked into as a pirate. There are swords, flintlocks, trinkets and fine jewelry perhaps giving you the feeling of the captain’s quarters, a pirate tavern, or adventure on the high seas with mates.
We are very proud to have been the winner of multiple awards over the years. We have won the best of Citysearch 5 times and been votes best in Los Angeles Hotlist numerous times. We’re the winner of Studio City Chamber of Commerce Small Business Award 2014 and United Chamber of Commerce Small Business Award 2014.
Established in 1992.
Studio City Tattoo was born from Sunset Strip Tattoo when Rockwood Ric left to open SCT. Rockwood had a large celebrity and rock n roll clientele, with Rockwood's success he decides to buy a house and shop on the Big Island Hawaii and can be found there tattooing today at Big Island Tattoo. In 1999, Rockwood sold the tattoo shop to Piercer Clay who has taken this shop to new adventures with the pirate-themed version that you see today. Recently (2022) Master Body Piercer Steve White has become new owner of the legacy shop. We still have the celebrity clientele but have expanded the shop with not only expert tattooists but equally skilled body piercers working under the banner of Los Angeles Body Piercing. We have one of the largest and finest collection of Body Jewelry in Los Angeles. We carry 18t gold and real diamonds!
