At Long Beach City College students express themselves through their style and for some students that means the art that is tattooed on their skin.

The style of a person can change from one day to the next, but for those with inked skin, a piece of their old style remains.

From a reminder of a loved one, to admiring the work of specific artists, or even a drunk night out, there is always a story when it comes to the tattoos on a person’s body.

Tattoos are self-expression and allow people to showcase what is important to them with the art that is on their body.

With stories from just a few students, you can gain insight as to who students are here at LBCC based on their ink.
