Outer Limits Tattoo is the Oldest Tattoo and Body piercing shop in the USA. Kari Barba purchased and restored the historic Bert Grimm’s tattoo studio, the oldest tattoo shop in the United States, second oldest in the world. Bert Grimm’s studio was a big part of Long Beach’s navy history and is the ONLY business from the original Pike still operating. Known as Outer Limits since 2007, this studio now offers a museum showcasing some of Long Beach’s history, a high-end body piercing studio and jewelry store, and of course world class tattooing.
Kari Barba started tattooing at age 19, in 1979, and has currently been tattooing for 32 years now. She has won over 500 awards in her career, including Best Tattooist 3 times, and a life time achievement award. She is the only known person to win all 1st places, in all categories at a single convention.
