Long Beach Pike tattoo parlor to reopen

Postby nichols » Thu Apr 19, 2007 3:24 pm

Bert Grimm's World Famous tattoo is the last remaining slice of the old Long Beach pike. The original shop opened in 1927 and closed in 2003. It's reopening under famed tattoo artist Kari Barba on March 31. There will be a museum inside. Enjoy.

I got my tattoo from Al Orsini himself at the Pike in 1968.
Best regards,
Kate at Studio 85

By the way, thinking of Pike-era buildings (though it wasn't quite part of the Pike), are there any plans yet as to what to do with the Looff roof?
