RIP Master Chief Mike Martin 2019
Mike was a jack of all trades, he was a Navy Seal and retired a Master Chief in 2003 quite a legend! He opened up FSG while still active with the teams in 1994 and has been open ever since. Mike passed away peacefully during a nap May 30, 2019 on a motorcycle trip back from the wall, a ride he never missed. Mike was the most interesting person most of us have ever met and we are all so grateful to have been blessed to know him well.
Apprenticed under Dwayne Norton of Tower Tattoo where she learned the basics of tattooing, lettering, composition and the different styles of tattooing
Laura came to my shop in 2010 and has been learning more everyday and her work shows it. She is a gifted artist and has the touch of a Healer; and her energy is peaceful and comforting to her clients.
Laura’s work ranges from very simple
to very complex bodywork, full back tattoos, large rib tattoo, full frontal tattooing and sleeves. Her lettering is excellent and her fonts are many. She enjoys black and grey, and realism.
She has been tattooing breast cancer survivors areolas and her work is beautiful.
I recently purchased FSG Tattoo with my husband Matthew from Mike’s wife Gale. We want to continue honoring Mike and his legacy and continue to tattoo and and make art for our community in Imperial Beach!
Apprenticed in both tattooing and piercing under her Tattoo Master Mike Martin, she is his last Jedi.
Sierra is a wonderful artist that enjoys tattooing her original art, Neo Traditional and flowers. She is a wonderful Tattooer in all areas.
She is trained in all piercings and enjoys poking holes in people as well.
Jay McCaslin started his tattoo career in 2001 in Denver, Colorado where he helped his best friend and tattoo mentor, Rob Hostetter , open Lifetime Tattoo. For 6 years he remained there where he got to work with and learn from another mentor, Walter McDonald.
In 2007, Jay moved to Houston, Texas where he spent the next 11 years learning from and working alongside many great tattooers.
In 2018, a series of unfortunate events left to Rob stepping in an helping Jay by bringing him out to work at this Lifetime Tattoo San Diego.
After the unfortunate passing of Mike Martin (an early influence on Rob) Jay started working here at FSG to help out. He has been here ever since.
Johnny works full time as a card dealer at night and works at FSG on Saturday and Sunday as our piercer. He is an asset to the shop, especially during busy weekend afternoons, helping piercing clients with their piercings and helping the, troubleshoot unruly piercings. He is always optimistic and extremely dedicated to perfecting his craft. Johnny is an accomplished piercer, and when you come to FSG you will see his friendly face welcoming you in.
FIND YOUR PERFECT TATTOO
Each artist at FSG works directly with clients to create art based on their input, but also provides guidance and artistic vision for the process.
Mike was a retired Master Chief Navy Seal, so we have been blessed to be able to work closely with the Navy as well as the other branches. We are surrounded by the southern bases in Imperial Beach/San Diego/Coronado, and price our tattoos extremely fair. We enjoy doing fun events or fundraisers that benefit our active duty and veterans.
