High Voltage Tattoo.

Reality TV Tattoo Parlor

Part of it burned down last year, so construction is happening. Apparently still open during construction though.

We were there today --there was the production crew in the back. They were real nice. Nice cars parked in the back. Go slow when looking for it -- it is sandwiched between two buildings.

High Voltage Tattoo.

Reality TV Tattoo Parlor

In Hollywood there are a million spots where scenes were shot for classic movies or TV shows, dressed up with temporary signs and paint jobs so that what remains is only recognizable if a tour guide points it out (thanks, Scott Michaels of Dearly Departed Tours!). Reality TV show locations, perversely, fare better. There's no budget to change much, and part of the allure of the on-air humiliation is that you and your business become celebrities.

Reality TV series "LA Ink" follows the work and travails of the skin artistes at High Voltage Tattoo. The storefront along La Brea is the real business; you can march right in and get a tattoo.

And check out the back of the building -- there's a large mural portrait of the show's "stars."
