A self-proclaimed 'lifestyle shop,' Black Banditz medieval-inspired interior is a melting pot of tattooing, hair artistry, and live music. Beginning as a photo blog featuring shots from events around town taken by Adam Moonves and Dan Regan, the two soon brought on Giovanny Artiga to do pop-up events and impromptu tattooing sessions. From there, the concept for Black Banditz was born, and the storefront on Melrose came to fruition. Today, the store is home to a moveable stage for live performances, five tattoo artists, three hair stylists, and a partridge in a pear tree. There, the staff performs a host of unique services from feather hair extensions to glow-in-the-dark tattoos.
