Built in 1955 and restored in 2011, the shop is located in the heart of downtown San Clemente just down the street from El Camino Real. This is the best tattoo shop in San Clemente—Ink Gallery Tattoo is a combination of modern meets an apothecary artist studio where our aim is to create a memorable experience of tradition and nostalgia while providing a modern, clean environment with the best of tattooing supplies and sterilization equipment.
Named after the our two main passions tattoos and art, Ink Gallery Tattoo is new school energy combined with old tradition. Historically, tattooing was the art of a craftsman—but today it has evolved beyond a craft to a carefully illustrated unique art form. Tattooing is surviving—and thriving—due to its secretive tradition and our need to stand out as an individual. It gives us strength—and most importantly the reminder we are free. Additionally, we encourage the support of other craftsmen and artisans who still work with their hands to keep nostalgia alive, from sign-painting to silk-screening and letter-press. We embrace the modern world, but never lose the craft and emotional connection to the blood, sweat and tears produced by our human hands.
