A creative background, a tattoo gun, and a steady hand were all of the tools Mark Longnecker needed in order to become Cocoa Beach’s very own Ink Master star.
As a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, Mark knew he wanted to commit himself to a career in art. After graduating, Mark worked in tattoo shops all throughout Florida, yet never felt fulfilled.
It was then when he realized that in order to find the perfect shop for him, he would have to create it. And so his Cocoa Beach-based tattoo shop, Endless Summer Tattoos, was born.
Mark chose to set up shop in Cocoa Beach because of his fondness for the beach culture that inspires his iconic tropical tattooing style. “The Space Coast is one of the best-kept secrets around here,” Mark said. “I picked the Space Coast to open my business and I’m not going anywhere.”Artisans
