An Intrinsic Love for The Craft

Lantz Huston and ShoeBox Tattoo have been creating tattooing in Los Angeles for almost 20 years now.  While working in the art department at Universal Studios, Lantz was offered the opportunity to work at one of LA’s top tattoo shops.  Once he tried it, he fell in love with the craft and hasn’t looked back. While at his first shop, he and the owner managed to win Best of LA – Best Tattoo shop, not once but twice. After several years honing his craft, he ventured out on his own and Opened ShoeBox Tattoo almost 5 years ago.   



Creating a Tattoo

Over the years, I’ve developed the ability to successfully create a variety of tattoo styles.  From Americana to tribal, trash-polka to fine-line etching, lettering, watercolor, and black and gray.  Having a background in illustration and a decade of recreating designs from some of the biggest movies in Hollywood, I have learned to take the ideas and thoughts of my clients and turn them in to a lifelong, one-of-a-kind designs just for them.
