"GET BUSY LIVING - OR GET BUSY DYING"
Check this badass chest-piece by the man they call THE GUS. One of Philly’s finest tattooists, Gus works out of the renowned OLDE CITY TATTOO shop on 2nd and Chestnut streets. Specializing in BIG designs, BOLD lines and shading, and BRIGHT colors, Gus is a master of the “Old-School” style, matching classic aesthetics with modern techniques and tastes. Gus has been tattooing me for 6 years now and I trust him with my life (or at least my skin). Back in the day Gus rocked parties as a hip-hop DJ so he’s always playing great music at the shop and it actually helps to keep your mind off the pain.
All of the artists at OLDE CITY are incredibly talented and they each have their own distinct styles. MARTY LACASSE, JAY GOLDBERG, and STEVE TIBERI are all veterans of the tattooing tradition. If you’re in Philly and looking to get inked, stop by the shop and meet some of the artists and check out their portfolios. And if you’re looking for a truly unique Old School piece, make sure you ask for The GUS!!
