About Sullen: Established in Huntington Beach, CA. early in 2001, Sullen got its start from being heavily influenced by Southern California beach culture and tattoo inspired art. With a strong focus on ideals and practices of modern tattooers, Sullen evolved from a small group of art driven tattooers and artists into a world renowned “Art Collective”. Influenced greatly by lessons learned early in tattooing, Co-owner Ryan Smith (a professional tattooer since 1996) brought collaborative ideas from the tattoo culture he knew so well and blended them with progressive fashion trends to create Sullen. His inspirations from the tattoo culture allowed him and the “Collective” to build the foundation on which Sullen currently thrives.
