Our Story

Leonardo Borri siting at The Honorable Society

Opened in 2009 by Marco Cerretelli, the Honorable Society has established itself as a mainstay of Los Angeles tattooing.  Serving as a host to dozens of domestic and international artists, the Honorable Society is represented by artists from the US, Italy, Thailand, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Korea, Russia and countless more.

With an eclectic style variety, encompassing American Traditional, Realism, Japanese, Neo Traditional, Thai Traditional, Illustrative, Watercolor, Fine Line, Minimalism, Chicano and Traditional Blackwork, we pride ourselves in being able to pair an artist to a customer with the exactly appropriate skillset.

Where pride in craftmanship meets passion and artistry, the artists of the Honorable Society present themselves to serve you.


It wouldn’t be a stretch to envision Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw and Walt Whitman gathering on the ornate Victorian-era sofas and sipping tea among the luxurious décor and deep red blushed walls of The Honorable Society.  With a standing Piano, classical paintings in vintage frames, elegant drapery cascading from doorframes, antique chairs and handcrafted cabinetry, THS reflects a bygone era of dandies and decadence.

The Honorable Society is humbly recognized as one of the best tattoo shops in Los Angeles by Timeout LA, Racked Los Angeles, Inked Magazine and most importantly by the countless customers we’ve served in more than a decade at our location.  We’ve been fortunate to be regarded as the best tattoo shop in West Hollywood by locals and angry review sites alike.
