sullen art collective

"What started off the back of a couch in a small apartment in Huntington Beach slowly grew into a movement. What sparked it all was some tattoo work with Nikko Hurtado and the subsequent first Tattoo Artist Series tee grew into a globally recognized brand known as the Sullen Art Collective. Over 200 artists have contributed since the brands inception in 2001. With styles varying from Black and Grey fine line, bold traditional Americana, and colorful realistic tattoo art. Sullen embodies the lifestyle of tattooing and honors its traditions. We hope you join the family, because we've always believed that #TogetherWeRise the #SullenArtCollective

Established in Huntington Beach, CA. early in 2001, Sullen got it’s start from being heavily influenced by Southern California beach culture and tattoo inspired art. With a strong focus on ideals and practices of modern tattooers, Sullen evolved from a small group of art driven tattooers and artists into a world renowned “Art Collective". As a whole, the “Collective” is drawn to the idea that art of all forms should be promoted, while related ideas should be shared for the world to learn from."

Now of Unbreakable Tattoo Studio in Las Cruces, NM, Alex tours heavily on the Ink Masters and Villain Arts Convention circuits. We tried out their products at the show and have never looked back.

Lox hair wax company

"It all started with a desire to produce high quality, all natural, hand made, hair & beard products under an image and style that are as bold and unique as the products we craft. The market is saturated with cheaply made, chemically induced hair products with the same genre repeated over and over again.  That's why we, at Lox Hair Wax Company, pride ourselves in using all natural ingredients of the highest quality for all our pomades, balms, and other grooming products.

When we say "all natural" we mean it. We do not use chemicals or alcohol in our products (which can leave your hair dry and damaged). Unlike hair gels, our classic pomades will not harden after application which makes restyling a cinch! 

Lox Hair Wax Company also takes great pride in the fact that we use the highest quality beeswax from local farms around our area. We love being able to use this organic product in our pomades and we love doing it with the help of our local farmers in and around the Scranton area.

Finally, our company is veteran owned and operated. Every batch of pomade is made by hand from a hard charging US veteran. All our products are made in small batches to ensure the integrity and quality of each product. In the service we were taught core values and the importance of service and we put all that into the process and the quality of work that we do. The United States Armed Forces has taught us so much and one way we show our gratitude is to give back to the veteran community. A percentage of our profit is donated to military non-profit organizations."


Pinups for Pitbulls

"Pinups for Pitbulls, Inc. (PFPB) was founded in 2005 by Deirdre ‘Little Darling’ Franklin. Deirdre was tired of finding that so-called rescues and shelters were euthanizing healthy, friendly, and adoptable animals due to their alleged “breed”, and so she utilized her background in modeling and education in fine arts to create a calendar like no other–eye-catching pinup girls and their pups, paying close attention to detail and era appropriate style along the way.

PFPB is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to educate people about the history, temperament, and plight of the pit bull-type dog; raising awareness to rally against Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) and Breed Discriminatory Laws (BDL). PFPB’s goal is to restore the image of the pit bull-type dog to its former reputation of America’s companion animal, war hero, and family member.

Through Deirdre’s ever-growing team of volunteers in over twenty states, PFPB has been able to host educational seminars, community outreach initiatives, and fund-raising events throughout the United States. In its educational crusade, PFPB hopes to end discrimination, abuse, and the unnecessary killing of pit bull-type dogs around the world–all the while dreaming that one day, PFPB will no longer be needed."

World Famous Ink

"World Famous is the result of a tattooing bloodline that’s been in the game for over 50 yrs. Decades of experience, a lifetime of work, battle after battle of industry tattoo ink. None of that was in vain. It was the driving force behind the revelation that something could be changed, that the Artist’s work could be enhanced, brightened and powered beyond the realm of the skin. This idea forged the creation of a proprietary formula that fuses the highest quality inks with the solid, core viscosity of every color. "
