Miami Ink, in LA

t60.jpgDid you know that a that 2 of the 5 tattoo artists featured on The Learning Channel’s Miami Ink are actually based here in LA? It’s true, both Chris Garver and Kat Von D (who did this amazing Gene Wilder) live in LA and work at True Tattoo in Hollywood (1614 N. Cahunega). I think Chris might be one of the owners of that shop. I stumbled across this when I was looking for a recommendation for a friend looking to get some new work done and was actually kind of psyched since I know from the show at at least those two are fantastic tattooists. The True Tattoo website has some weird plugin issues so I wasn’t able to check out the other artists who work there but it’s probably a pretty safe bet that they are worth checking out.

  1. yes its great that they are la based and right now they are taking applicants for a few miami ink shows they will be filming here.
    why don’t you apply for that so we can all see what you are getting done.

  2. Better double check that spelling on “Garver.” ;) He is indeed a co-owner, along with that guy Clay Decker. I don’t know anything about Decker, though.

    Oliver Peck, who’s Kat Von D’s husband and also shows up on Miami Ink off and on, tattoos there as well when he’s not in TX. I guess every time there’s a Friday the 13th he’ll tattoo a 13 on anybody who comes in for $13. I always wanted to do that.
