Philly's Famous Tattoo Alley

Philly's Famous Tattoo Alley

Most of us here at Sourpuss are, indeed tattooed. We appreciate and love the tattoo culture and especially where it all started. We took a trip to the famous intersection, 4th and South St where the line for Jim's cheesesteaks is long and the crowd is as diverse as it gets.

We started our shoot at The Original Philadelphia Eddies! Not to be confused with the others on the block or in the city. The walls are covered wall to wall with vintage flash and vintage photos.

Established in 1952, it's a piece of history, one of thee oldest tattoo shops on the east coast. Frank, who's called this shop home for over 20 years now is more than happy to share the history of the shop and all of the previous owners. We were honored to have shot in this little piece of Philadelphia history. 

Now lets talk about what you're planning on adding to your shopping cart. The new Dolly dress. Available in solid black and black and white stripes, its a go-to dress for the upcoming warmer months. The slight waterfall hem gives it the perfect amount of flare. Looking to complete the outfit? Grab a hooded black cardigan, a pair of combat boots, and our new Monster Mortuary Purse, voila!

How perfect does this Luna Bats set look on Vanessa?  We paired up the spooky set with the new Shock Me handbag in black. The Shock Me bag comes in a solid black (pictured above) and an eye striking red! They're the perfect retro bag to complete any look. My favorite part about these bags? The kiss lock closures! The perfect pin up touch!

This look! 😍 We are head over heels for this dress & purse duo! The Nokturnal Bats Veronica dress is the Spooky Pin Up dress of your dreams! Patterned with our Nokturnal bats in a gold foil, and adorned with a black glittery belt. This is a silhouette you can't say no to! 

Matching purse? Yes Please! This bowler bag is available in Silver and Gold and is the perfect size for your daily everyday bag. Big enough to hold your makeup bag, wallet, and other goodies the vintage inspiration for this bag will steal your spooky heart.

(Cat Lady Coffin Purse... we know it's PERFECTION)

We are loving the Coffin shaped purses lately (have you seen Rude Tombs?) So don't sleep on grabbing this BAD. ASS. Cat Lady Coffin Purse. Same amazing shape as the other, but you have one bad ass babe on the front. Featuring a Sol Rac original illustration, it's definitely a bag you'll be dying over.
