The Lincoln Tattoo Company is the collaborative creation of Jason Stores and Paul Friedman. Growing up on the Westside of Los Angeles, both were inspired by the subcultures and style that surrounded them. Santa Monica and Venice provided a rare union of surf, skate, punk rock, graffiti and gang culture that one rarely saw anywhere else. These things usually stood apart from one another.
All these years later, the westside looks radically different, and so does the tattoo industry. When creating the shop we wanted something that bears relevance with our new community, while still honoring the westside we witnessed, remember, and are grateful to have grown up in.
