Perri Ink was founded by Nick Perri (guitarist with Silvertide and other bands) in 2009 and his early models (Prostar and Solostar) were made in Nick's home town of Philadelphia. The Perri Ink Cartel store opened in 2011 on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, California and offered custom guitars, custom motorcycles, clothes, tattoos, haircuts and piercings. In 2012 the company revamped its operations and launched new instrument and hardware lines - including cabinets, pickups and pick guards. The Perri Ink Cartel store closed in 2013, and Nick went back to working on original music, returning to the stage in 2014.
