We are a family friendly shop, with a group of artists who have all known each other for over a decade. Our large, comfortable studio, private piercing room, lounge, art gallery and collection of curios and oddities come together as an interesting, unique and relaxing environment for us and our clients to create art.
diablo ink tattoo
is the owner of Diablo Ink, and did his tattoo apprenticeship with "Pops" Saller in San Pedro Ca. in 1991 while serving in the U.S. Navy. He has tattooed from San Diego to Singapore, but returned home to settle in the East Bay. He is versed in all styles of tattooing from portraits and fine line black and grey, to bright traditional color. His regular work schedule is Tue, Thu, Fri, and Sat, from noon 'til at least five.
started her tattooing carreer in 2006, and built it upon the formal art education she recieved at the Acadamy of Art, San Francisco. She enjoys putting her own twist on all styles and subject matter, but really loves anatomy and the human form, especially female pin-ups. Her regular work schedule is Sunday-Thursday from noon 'til at least five.
has been a long time friend of the shop, a regular guest artist for several years, and as of July a full time member of the crew! He has worked along side many talented tattooists during his long carreer and it shows in his diversity of style and understanding of the craft and its history. He is happy to exceed all your tattoo expectaions from clean script to large custom designs and cover-ups.
Papa Nixx Hill
has been a part of Diablo Ink since we opened, and has lent his incredible talent to our line-up many times over the years when not immersed in his oil painting, or involved with one of his giant mural projects. He loves to do large custom work and has a passion for surrealism and portraiture. He is available by appointment only.
