Starting Sunday August 10th 1920 Tattoo will be opening it’s doors 7 days a week. Our new hours will be Sunday-Saturday 1 to 9pm. With our expansion to the new shop we planned on adding some new artists to round out the crew. Deciding not to hire anyone who wouldn’t hold up to our standards and professionalism. Our customers mean more to us than money so we waited for the right guy and have finally found him. So please Join us in welcoming Alan Flores to the list of professional tattooers at 1920 Tattoo. Now that we have 3 artist and 2 shop helpers we can expand our hours and days of operation to better meet the demand. We are both proud and honored to be able to accomplish this goal. It’s always humbling to watch the power of walking the line!
Alan Flores hails from Los Angeles, California. Alan was into music and art at a young age, touring with hardcore bands and hanging out at the local tattoo shops. He got his start working the floor at Sharky’s Tattoo in Sunset Beach, CA.. After a few years he was offered a long and thorough apprenticeship under Kevin Gulley in 2008. He started tattooing in 2009 at Sharky’s tattoo. Moving on to a busier shop in 2010 Alan started working for John Montgomery at The Grand Tattoo Lodge. Were he stayed busy tattooing until 2011. In striving to become a better more consistent tattooer Alan was always looking for the next opportunity to advance his career. He left GTL and started working at the World famous Tattoo Mania in Hollywood, CA. While staying super busy tattooing at Alan began to spread his wings. Learning a bunch of new techniques which enabled him to become a more solid tattooer. With tattooing becoming more fluid for Alan he had more time to spend on his other passion painting tattoo flash. Due to personal reasons Alan again found himself on the move landing in New Hampshire at Tattoo Junkies. He soon left New Hampshire because of a job offer that he couldn’t refuse at 13 Roses Tattoo in Atlanta, GA in 2013. After working at 13 for a year and a half Alan left to come work with us at 1920 Tattoo. Traveling is one of main keys in the evolution of becoming a better more rounded tattooer. We are super stoked that those travels has led Alan to come and join our tattoo family at 1920 Tattoo.
Mr Flores has been tattooing now for 6 years. He specializes in walk-in tattoos, and working with the customer to give them what they want. Alan is proficient at all styles of tattooing, however, he favors traditional tattoos. Over the top work ethic and drive are two of his strongest qualities. So come on down and welcome Alan to the 1920 Tattoo family. While your here get a great tattoo from an even better person!
Stay Classy Y’all,
