The 10 Best Tattoo Artists In San Francisco

San Francisco has an impressive amount of talent when it comes to tattooing. It’s a city rich with history, influences and cultures that have produced some incredibly notable tattoo artists. Tattooing has long been an essential part of San Francisco’s culture, but of course, the recent eruption in tattooing popularity has helped to give a boost to the reach San Francisco tattoo artists have.

It was difficult to find a succinct list of the best San Francisco tattoo artists. We could only find randomly optimized content and a yelp review here and there so we decided to create our own. We hope you’ll enjoy.

1. Chris Henry – Tattoo Boogaloo

What an incredible mix of black and white and color work. This is one of the only pieces we’ve seen done with these two styles mixed together.


2. Gabe –  Dream Masters Tattoo

Did anyone else notice that this is a tattoo of a man with a tattoo?…

Custom poppeye for today! Never do traditionally kind of feeling stuff but this was fun!

3. Lianna Sabrina – Black & Blue Tattoo

4. Jess – Black & Blue Tattoo

“I spy with my little eye”, more than one animal…

5. Joey Hill – Puzzle Piece Tattoo

Say cheese! This very small, but lifelike piece is perfect for those who like to keep their ink simple yet poignant.

6. Joey Cassina – Ocean Avenue Tattoo

Imagine trying to contour that.

Made today @oceanavenuetattoosf

7. Mez – Tattoo Boogaloo

This piece looks like the petals would actually flutter a little if the wind blew.

8. Carlos Iglesias – Braindrops SF -Tattoos

One of the more interesting concepts found on our hunt for amazing San Francisco tattoo artists. Carlos’ execution of this piece is extremely impressive.

9. Mike Bianco – Rose Gold’s Tattoo & Piercing.

May The Force Be With You – Mike is a Lucasfilm Licensed Tattoo Artist.
