World Famous Tattoo Ink is one of the most respected manufacturers in the tattoo industry in the world. Led by Lou Rubino Jr., World Famous' motto is: passion, family and forever. Rubino has been passionate about tattooing from the womb. As an apprentice at his father’s shop, Jr. had high expectations to live up to. Rubino Sr. pushed his son intensely, so that he would one day revolutionize the industry. 

Determined, ambitious and hard-working, Lou did just that. From working in a walk-in tattoo parlor in New York to becoming one of the most sought-after artists in the world, Lou has changed tattooing forever. 

Lou influenced the New York tattoo landscape little by little, through his several Long Island parlors, and achieving many "firsts" in his area. For instance, he's known for setting up shop in a hockey arena, becoming the first ever to open a tattoo parlor inside a sports arena anywhere in the world

Lou was inspired to pivot from tattoo shops to manufacturing tattooing equipment and tattoo ink, and thus World Famous Tattoo Ink was born.
