Inked Addicts invited us out for their one year anniversary party in Lake Forest, CA, check out the video:
With so many ambitious tattoo artists popping up from virtually all over the place, opening up a reputable and quality tattoo shop and maintaining it’s success is no easy feat. There are a lot of factors that go into running a shop and many growing pains the artists go through; countless variables can impede on the progress of tattoo shops, so it is no surprise that there are also a lot of shops closing down and artists migrating elsewhere.
Enter Inked Addicts of Lake Forest, California, who just celebrated their one year anniversary at their current location. Succeeding in the storied tattoo city of Lake Forest shows that they are doing something right. Established by Artist Wade Sanchez and Manager Leslie Feliz, Inked Addicts has become a popular southern California tattoo destination. Sanchez has over 17 years of tattoo experience and all artists on board are also well versed in their artistry, experience, and professionalism.
Inked Addicts’ one year anniversary featured 2 days of non stop tattooing, starting with a full house on Friday the 13th of September; over 200 tattoos were done. Tattoo deals, vendors, and entertainment filled the shop and Boscoe’s Sports Grill next door; local bands battled for a cash prize, money was raised for the “Fuck Cancer” foundation and Inked Addicts was giving back all the love they received over the last year.
Congratulations to the talented crew at Inked Addicts! To Andres Haase, Original Trigger, Oscar Bonilla, Art, Yeb 1 and of course Wade and Leslie on a successful first year, we wish you the best and many more anniversaries to come.
