Guitarist Nick Perri has launched the PERRI INK. Cartel, a cool + hip spot that's a hybrid of a salon, tattoo parlor, piercing studio, a mechanic's dwelling, a motorcycle enthusiasts' lair and a fashion-conscious person's digs! Cool, right?
It's motorcycles, tattoos, piercings, hair cuts and apparel – all things we like and that make up cool countercutlure. It's an amazing destination in Los Angeles, one that you must visit if you are a local, an out-of-towner and/or a tourist, so ARTISTdirect.com had to sit down with Perri to discuss his vision and spread the word.
"It's all artistic with the Cartel," Perri said about this thrilling new venture. "It's not like we're making toasters." He admitted that the idea was easy to write down on paper but that it was challenging to translate in real life. He has had to learn how to budget time + money and has acquired an entirely new skill set while working on this endeavor. " I don't know where it'll lead but getting there will be fun since it's a venue for artistic expression," Perri said. That's a terrific mindset for him to have and one we support! Hop on this ride, since life is about the journey, not the final destination!
Be sure to add Perri Ink. Cartel to the list of places you absolutely have to check out when you visit LA! Or if you are a native, be sure and pop by! Head down for a hang out sesh if you're local. You won't regret it. The Cartel is down on 7303 Melrose Ave!
