We can't wait to meet you.
Opened summer of 2017, Temperance Tattoo is excited to provide a space for a new generation of tattoo artists. With 1,500 square feet of space in downtown San Francisco, this location is designed to provide client comfort and artists with space for creativity.
During event nights, Temperance Tattoo is able to fully transform into an art gallery targeted towards local artists and current Bay Area tattooers.
We currently have several resident artists and a series of rotating guests with availability. Feel free to reach out to individual artists via their profiles at the bottom of this page.

HOW DOES THE DEPOSIT WORK?
A deposit is used to reserve your tattoo appointment. Deposits are an important part of the design process and enable me to dedicate time towards your drawing. This deposit is non-refundable and will be deducted from the full-price of your last tattoo session.
As part of deposit policy, you may forfeit your deposit if: you reschedule your appointment more than twice, are in excess of an hour late to your given appointment, or fail to reschedule 48-hours prior to your appointment.
WHAT ABOUT TIPS?
Tips are never expected, but always appreciated. Gratuity for an experience that was positive certainly can be shown monetarily, but doesn't have to be. We love when clients bring trinkets, cards, art, snacks, or anything else that tells us more about your experience with us.
HOW SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF MY NEW TATTOO?
After leaving your session, keep the bandage wrapped for at least four hours (no more than twelve hours) and do not re-bandage. Once you remove your bandage, wash your tattoo with clean hands and a non-abrasive/non-scented soap. Pat dry with a clean paper towel. Let dry for 24 hours and then apply a thin layer of unscented lotion (ex. Aveeno). Apply lotion once a day for two weeks or until tattoo has scabbed and peeled fully (do not over apply!). Remember this an open wound, so avoid soaking tattoo in water for extended periods of time as this may breed bacteria as well as keep from excessive exposure to sunlight. Clean tattoo daily. Remember, scabbing is normal part of the healing process. Resist the urge to scratch at scabs as it can scar and distract from your new work. You can safely return to any extraneous physical activities such as weight lifting, yoga, etc. after about a week.
Be sure to eat a hearty meal at least 2-3 hours before your appointment to maintain a healthy blood-sugar level. Refrain from excessive drinking the night before your session. You're more than welcome to bring snacks, a change of clothes, a book, meals, or anything else that will keep you feeling comfortable during your appointment.
