A Unfortunately,  the city of San Francisco has shut all businesses down until at least May 3rd. We are unable to tattoo in shop during this time. All deposits are still valid and are going to be rescheduled for after May 3rd. Support a small business by showing your SF Pride. The SF "Shelter in Place" is hurting small businesses everywhere, but especially the art industry. Check out our new SF Strong Merch collection, and with your purchase, you can not only support a local tattoo studio, you can show how a fabulous community can stay strong, helping one another during this tough time.




Established in 2009, we at Moth and Dagger have been redefining what it means to create art. Our talented artists each have tattoo styles as unique and full of character as the city of San Francisco.


We have an experienced ear to listen to your vision and a skilled eye to realize it. And like our tattoos, we wear our heart for philanthropy on our sleeves offering fundraisers with proceeds going to specific causes.


We will create timeless art that will leave a lasting impression for the rest of your life. Schedule an appointment or walk in and say hello to you next masterpiece!

The studio is owned and operated by Mario Delgado.

Other Moth and Dagger artists include Joe Kelly, and Justin Davis.
