- Baba Austin -


     I Started my journey in Tattooing as a child, hanging out at the tattoo shop in Van Nuys!!
     Rediscovered my love for the dark side debauchery in NYC with Jonathan Shaw in 1989.
     I have been in Love with Tattooing ever since. I opened and founded VINTAGE TATTOO in 1995.
     I have had 5 main mentors in my tattoo career, Jonathan Shaw, Mike Brown, Tenn. Dave James, Rick Walters and Wes Wood, but yet i continue to learn and appreciate everyone that has contributed to the tattoo world.
     I have won many awards at many different conventions in the past 22 years, I have been in numerous magazines and books. I used to have my own column in SKIN and INK magazine called "The Gospel according to BABA" and in Feb of 2011 INKED magazine made me a ICON! I am very proud of these accomplishments.
     I feel honored and humbled that people choose me and my style to bring their tattoo dreams to a reality!!
