Mark Mahoney has inked some of the top names in Hollywood.

Operating out of an upscale tattoo parlor near the western end of the Sunset Strip, the owner of the Shamrock Social Club has become the go-to man for celebrities seeking tattoos.

On a recent Thursday evening, wearing a fashionable gray suit over brown alligator-skin shoes, the lanky 56-year-old strolled through the busy studio, decorated with three-leaf clovers and portraits of the Virgin Mary, on his way to his customary 5:30 p.m.-to-1 a.m. shift.

Several of Mahoney’s nine employees were already at work, their needles buzzing over custom tattoos that cost from $500 for a single sitting to many thousands of dollars for an elaborate tattoo.

Paul Booth’s Last Rites Gallery Presents: Yoko d’Holbachie

INTHEDARK_WebLast Rites Gallery: What is your earliest memory of picking up a paintbrush? Tell us a little more about it.

Yoko d’Holbachie: I attended a painting class run by an American couple when I was 3 years old. I drew monsters, ghosts and snails with a shell full of eye balls often.

Last Rites Gallery: What does In the Dark mean and why did you choose it for your exhibition at Last Rites Gallery?

Yoko d’Holbachie: I loved the gallery’s space coronation for the dark art, when I visited the Last Rites Gallery. It inspired me for new painting idea that the beautifully glowing critters in the gloom. What I wanted to paint for this exhibition is actually the gleam in the dark, not the dark.

Last Rites Gallery: Please tell us a little bit more on why you paid tribute to contemporary and classical mythologies in some of your pieces? (Ayida Weddo, Hatmehit, Gorgon?)
