Now in it’s 10th year, the Ink-N-Iron Kustom Culture Festival once again invaded the shores of Long Beach over the weekend. The Queen Mary plays host to one of the largest tattoo and music festivals on the West Coast, which spans three days and saw headlining acts like Iggy & The Stooges, The Offspring, and Sublime with Rome take the stage while a tattoo convention raged inside the ship.
Long Beach was certainly represented well with hometown heroes Tijuana Panthers and Sublime with Rome both playing the opening night. Check out a small sampling of all the action from Friday featuring bands Well Hung Hear, Tijuana Panthers, He’s My Brother She’s My Sister, The Growlers, The Selector, and Sublime with Rome.
