Oakland Ink was founded in 2013. The shop is housed in an early 1900's historical building complete with the original ivory tiling and intricate tin ceiling. The vintage feel of the building meshes with the artwork featured along every wall, allowing Oakland Ink to double as an art gallery. Artists at the shop come from all over the country to configure a staff that has an expansive range of specialties. Aside from the talent and passion for tattooing at Oakland Ink, the shops best asset is a welcoming atmosphere. Oakland Ink is known to be the friendliest shop in the Bay Area and clients quickly turn into family. It is Oakland Ink's mission to give you the highest quality artwork and unparalleled customer service.
