Welcome

Diving Swallow has evolved over the past ten years into a uniquely beautiful tattoo studio (and general store!) of female and gender queer artists in downtown Oakland. We make art on the skin and other surfaces in a wide range of styles and subject matters. If you are looking for fantastic custom tattoo art, then please check out our artists to see if their work looks like what you’re dreaming of for your skin! Or stop by for a visit to peruse ourĀ tattoo after care products, herbal elixirs and art prints.
