In our feature Gettin’ To Know Ya!, we meet up with the some of the most creative minds in Santa Cruz to pick their brains–not their noses. In our debut post we knew just who to talk to…Mike Espinosa, tattoo/fine artist and owner of Black Pearl Tattoo in Pleasure Point. You may have seen his giant mural on 41st avenue, commemorating Santa Cruz legend, the late, great, Jack O’Neill. Come peep our intimate chat with the man behind the needle and enjoy some sweet eye candy below for dessert, you filthy pig!
