Solid Gold Seaside

The owners of Solid Gold Seaside are Danielle Vetter and Rob Hotte, both Long Beach locals. We have an established location in Elmont, NY that has been open for 13 years. We decided to open our second location here in the West End of Long Beach in 2020. We specialize in traditional tattoo and piercing at both locations but wanted to incorporate our love of art here in Long Beach. We provide a space for local artists to display and sell their art, we rotate these artists monthly.

What do you like best about what you do?
Being able to show off our talents through tattoos as well as art on a daily basis!

What's your favorite event or your favorite thing to do in Long Beach? Why?
My favorite event in Long Beach has always been the craft fair. I've been drawn to it ever since I was little, my mom and I would go every year. We're both pretty creative ourselves, so it just makes sense. I am beyond excited to finally be a part of it!

If you could be anyone else for a day who would you be?

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
We are both huge supporters of local art and local business. All of our merchandise for sale is made for and by locals!
We are trying to end the stigma against tattoo shops being considered "not family oriented/or not for kids". We would love to hold classes for children to learn about drawing or paint and sip nights for adults in the future.

What would be a great referral for business for you?

We would want to refer people to or Instagram @solidgoldseaside. Or to just come in and say hey! We love locals, as we are locals ourselves We are a diverse group of artists, not just limited to tattoos. I think a good referral, aside from the obvious tattoo/piercing, would be that we love to create art for people to admire on their walls as well as their bodies!
