About Godspeed Tattoo, Inc.

Godspeed Tattoo was originally opened in 1998 by “Turtle” who had moved to San Mateo for a brief period. After apprenticing under Turtle for a short time, Kevin Marr was offered to buy the shop, as Turtle decided to move back to the East Coast. Nick Bergin began working with Kevin in the Summer of 2002 and is the current shop owner.
