The Gilded Lily Tattoos was founded on April 24th, 2004 by Mac and Maren Cellitti. Originally located on Highway 9 in Felton, CA, the shop steadily grew in popularity due to Mac's amazing artistic ability and the shop's friendly, unpretentious atmosphere. Ian Rydquist, who has been tattooing since 2005, joined The Gilded Lily family in February of 2013.
