Diving Swallow is a tattoo studio of female and gender queer artists in downtown Oakland, California. A unique space in the East Bay, we have evolved into a collection of artists who can create the custom ink art that you are dreaming of. We make art on the skin and other surfaces in a wide range of styles and subject matters. Color, black and gray, hand poke, botanical, back piece, lifework, fine line, decorative, ornamental, realism, painterly, and neo-traditional ­we do it all with a strong and sensitive hand. We don’t have a phone, so go to the artist page you want to work with and contact them from there.

We’re always looking for excellent artists to join us for a day or more! Refer to our about page for contact information.
