Tattoo Lovers Shop, was founded out of the love and appreciation for tattoos. In the mid-90’s, there was massive tattoo progression and innovations experience from tattoo machines to tattoo television shows. Tattoo Magazines weren’t coming out fast enough to feed the appetite of tattoo fans, tattoo artists and tattoo collectors wanting to see fresh tattoo content, everyday! We felt Facebook was the best platform to offer amazing tattoo content and build a tattoo community around it.
In 2009, there were only a few ways to see tattoos; Tattoo Magazines, Tattoo Conventions, Tattoo Studios, and Tattoo TV Shows. Tattoo Magazines, were out of date, hard to find, and usually focused on sexy girls, not quality tattoos. Tattoo Conventions were limited and you had very little time to find an available tattoo artist who had a spot, and then even shorter time to look the their tattoo portfolio photo album, which was also, was usually outdated. The Tattoo TV Shows Miami Ink & LA INK, did touch slightly on the tattooing craft, but in the end, focused more on what was good for ratings, at the time. Google Images, usually were poor photos, and there was still a bit of a taboo when entering Tattoo Studios/Shops, as a new customer.
If you look back then at tattoos, and compare the tattoo quality of today, there has been huge improvements to the type of tattoos that tattoo artists are creating”. Photo Realism, Color, Black & Grey Portraits, Color Tattoos without black lines, and so on, have advanced so much by Tattoo Artists sharing and pushing each other to new creative heights. We wanted to come up with a solution and offer, high quality tattooing by the best tattoo artists in the world, and Tattoo Lovers Shop was created.
As the community grew so did the relationships with Tattoo Artists and our Fans. Tattoo Lovers Shop began traveling to tattoo conventions, tattoo industry events, and the best tattoo studios and tattoo shops in the world to curate the best tattoo work and find the most progressive and undiscovered tattoo artists on the fringe of the tattoo industry.
