Project: Mark Mahoney Tattoo Ink Box

Description: Intenze wanted to create a custom tattoo ink box to honor Venice Beach tattoo artist Mark Mahoney.  Inspired by a whiskey box each one contained a bottle of Mark’s own recipe of “shamrock green” tattoo ink. This alder box was released at a St. Patty’s day party at Marks tattoo shop in Venice Beach, CA.  Shrapnel used our CNC process to create an inlaid gold clover on the front of the box with a burnt etching of some of Mark’s own script.  Inside the lid was a mirror gold plate with a frost etched script on it, the orange lining had an Irish proverb that was screen printed onto the orange fabric.
