I have my share of tattoos and thought I knew how a tattoo shop should be run until I came to Propaganda. These guys do it right, the place looks awesome they treat you great and they have other services besides tattooing. They have laser removal (a tattoo shop with laser removal, weird), they have a barber shop and the place is the nicest I have ever been in. If you want a really nice tattoo and want to get treated right then go here. A+++++++

These guys were awesome. When I first walked in I was greeted by a very freindly staff. They are very knowledgeable and do clean, solid tattoos. They quickly helped me draw up my idea and worked with me to make me very happy. Some of the other shops in the area made me feel like I was bothering them when I walked in. The portfolios at the other shops looked like "kitchen" artists. All the guys at Propaganda are great artists and I would highly recommend their shop.

Business Response:

Thanks, Kelly. People like you have made us the best San Diego tattoo shop around. Come back any time.

I love my tattoo. I was very nervous, but the whole shop is comfortable and relaxed. Once I got there, they encouraged me to take my time. We discussed a lot of options and finally chose a rose design with my kids name on it. The artist created it exactly like I had imagined.

Definitely a very good San Diego tattoo shop.

I was just in this past Saturday to have blaze work on some plumerias on my shoulder. They turned out AMAZING. The best work I've had done yet, and I will continue to go back to him and this shop. Great welcoming environment, also fun! I will highly reccomend this shop to everyone I know!

Chris gave me my first tattoo and he did a great job. He's very professional and an excellent artist. I was a bit nervous about getting a tattoo, but he talked to me like a guy getting a tattoo rather than acting condescendingly. in fact, every time I talked to him, and the other artists at Propaganda, there was a geniune feeling of concern, like they appreciated my business and wanted me to leave as a satisfied customer. I highly recommend Propaganda, and especially Chris. LOVE the tattoo!

My stepmom and I went to Propaganda for memorial tattoos for my papa who just recently passed. We heard about the place through a friend and Im very glad we did. The artists there were very personable and talented and gave my stepmom and I exactly what we wanted. I got a crimson clover and my stepmom got a wizard and as they are healing they just get more and more beautiful every day. I had Blaze do my clover and Thad did the wizard and they both did an incredible job. I plan to go back next month with my sister for her to get her memorial tattoo and Im getting a lily done for my grama who has also passed. These are a great bunch of guys.

The guys at Proganda are HOT, but better yet they are the BEST at what they do! The artwork was legit and they took their time to give you what you want. It is some of the best work I've seen. I will totally go back when I get my next tat!

I was referred to these guys by my barber and I was pleasantly surprised by the professionalism, peronal attention, and artist merit these guys have.

I walked in today and got another tattoo. Joe (aka: Grizzley Joe) at the Point Loma location was the one who helped me. He was professional, personable, very creative and a top professional Tattoo Artist. These are things anyone wants when they go get ink. Anyway, I was not disappointed by the crew and my new tat is good, really good!

I highly recommend you check these guys out before going ahead and getting your ink done somewhere else. The prices are good, service excellent, and the atmosphere in the studio is amazing. I have seen alot worse, and I can tell you that these guys are awesome and I definately will be coming back in for more!!

Thanks for my new tattoo Joe!!!!

Pros: Awesome Experience, Good pricing, Killer Atmosphere!!

Cons: none..................!

This was my first tattoo as I got a set of 4 paws down the side of my ribs. Everyone told me to expect it to be a little on the painful side as I picked a place to get my first tattoo that was mainly a bony area. Chris Primm was my artist and he had such a light touch that I barely felt anything! It was no walk in the park, but by the end of it, I was starting to fall asleep. It was such a great experience and took no time at all!

I followed Joe Arden in to the Voltaire shop to finish up a stellar Scarecrow tat on my left shoulder (like a one third sleeve). I was already pretty stoked about him because he's just a fun guy and a great artist, so I was pleased to find out it seems like all the rest of the artists are pretty similar. The whole place has a relaxed and personal atmosphere. It's perhaps a bit small and old, but unless you're working there for several hours a day, it's not an issue. Kinda adds charm in fact. If you're there certain times of the day you get massacred with fresh baked doughnut smell, too. Good place. Go get some ink.

I was referred to the college area Propaganda by a friend who got a rad tattoo by Zoger. I went in with a vauge idea of what I wanted and I explained it to him (Zoger). He sat down with me and took 2 hours drawing different designs until we got the one I liked. We busted out my Mer-man tattoo and it looks GREAT!!!! I'll never go anywhere else for my tattoos.

Walked in and immediately was greated by a friendly staff. Not your typical "I am so cool, dont bother me" attitude that you get at other shops. My girlfriend and I went to two other shops in the area and it seemed like they didnt even want to talk to us so when we went into Propaganda it felt really comfortable. I really like the artwork on the walls and Johnny and Zogger did amazing tattoos. It was cool because we were both able to get our tattoos at the same time. They took our idea and made it into a beautiful piece of artwork. I wouldnt go anywhere else

The best in business. I love Propaganda Tattoo. I went to this shop because it is close to my school. I got a great tattoo from Travis the bear. He knew exactly what I wanted with just a short description. If you want a great tattoo from some really nice guys then go to Propaganda.

I go to SDSU and have alot of choices for tattoo parlors in the area. My friend and I went to 4 or 5 shops in the area before walking in to Propaganda. Their shop is the nicest and cleanest looking for sure and they guys who work there are not scary at all. In fact everyone was really nice. My tattoo was of scripture on my side, it really hurt but it came out beautiful and I get compliments on it all the time. I can't wait to show it off at the beach. I even got an email follow up a few days later asking how my tattoo was doing and to call or email them back with questions. Thanks Propaganda, You Guys are the ones that ROCK!!. LOL

Guys are friendly, helped me through my first tattoo. Did the job well, offered free touchups, professional, reasonably priced. They're active in the community - a dude with apparent mental disabilities came in to get a CD burned while I was in there. Just a good place.

i went up and down visiting several tattoo shops in the area, and when i walked into propaganda, it was nothing but professionalism, and smiles.
They were the only shop that took time to hear what work i wanted, and the only one who through ideas at me, and didn't ask me to bring in "EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED LIKE SOME ARTISTS"
Johnny Blaze did a great job, very cool, and talented.
YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR>
i'm very happy with my tattoo

Propaganda Tattoo is an awesome place to go for a tattoo. I got my first tattoo, a japanese symbol for eternity, a week or so ago there and it was a great experience. Everything is so clean and the guys are really cool. Shawn did my tattoo and he was great, made sure i was comfortable. He is very talented and I couldn't have asked for more with my first tattoo! I DEFINITELY reccommend Propaganda to anyone interested in getting a tattoo!!

Shaun is a great tattoo artist and propaganda is a great tattoo shop. When I got to the parlor I was greeted by the nicest guys. I didnt feel stupid or like I was bothering the guys (like I have at other shops in the area). Shaun actually made me feel right at home and did a drawing for me on the spot. He took his time explaining the process of the tattoo and how to take care of my new tattoo. I am going back to the shop next week to get my second tattoo. Its official, I am addicted to tattoos and to propaganda.

I had a basic idea of what I wanted and I brought it in to Blaze in the College Area shop. He drew exactly what I wanted and a few days later, I got the nicest tat ever. All my friends are telling me they wish they went to Blaze. He did a great job. The shop is really nice and big, really clean and next to a bar, so I was able to go for a drink afterwards.

No matter what kind of style or artwork you looking for propaganda can provide it. Every tattoo artist in the joint is exceptional. I personally have Sergio do all my work, he is the small funny brazilian man lol but coolest guy ever. All my art work is color and i've never seen color turn out the way mine has and all my friends have color but no like mine. Over all the guys here are down to earth and funny, you dont feel like you just walked into a parolee office, but a nice tattoo shop right next to the beach, ask for sergio

I am from Alabama and was visiting San Diego for a few days. I have gotten 3 smaller tats in Bama, none were terrible but none super impressive either. I decided a while back I wanted a piece on my arm that would really pop and that people noticed, however I really couldn't decide what I wanted. I also wanted to get it somewhere other than home. I saw San Diego as that chance so I did some researching on line and settled on Propaganda. About 2 weeks before coming, I contacted Sergio at Propaganda and explained I wanted a tattoo with some Christian symbols and overtone but really didn't know what I wanted as I have no creative/artistic ability. Sergio got back in touch with me (after a few days and phone calls) and told me some ideas he had working. I told him put it on paper and e-mail it to me. He came up with an awesome piece. I went by the shop, he modified a few details for me and then went to work. Three hours later I had the piece of art on my arm I have been waiting forever to get and it looks badazz. The atmosphere was easy and the artists very accomodating (no attitudes or stereotypes to deal with). All was very professional as far as tattoo's go. If / when I visit San Diego again, Propaganda will be a must.

If you want to get an excellent Tattoo in a friendly environment this is the place. I have had two tattoos from this shop and they both look better than any of my other work. I recently brought in a design with intricate line work and could not be happier with the work that Eric did. The attitude in the shop will make you feel as if your getting a tattoo with a bunch of friends. There is even a circus bear eating animal crackers.

Ok, after thinking about a tattoo for literally years I got up enough nerve to just do it. I read a ton about the process, selection and places to do it and Propoganda had the most positive reviews out there. I went in and met Chris. Awesome guy with a great artistic skill. I let him know that this was my first time and he took care of everything. We did an armband that extends all the way around. Surprisingly it wasn't nearly as painful as I thought it would be. Of couse the sensitive inner part of your arm was a bit more tender, but that's what I expected. After about 2 hours, I had an awesome design that I totally love. I didn't see Chris' name on their website, but I'd highly recommend him. If I decide to go for more, Chris is definitely my choice and Propoganda definitley lived up to all of the recommendations I read on line.

I got my second tattoo done here by Sergio & it was amazing. It turned out way beyond my expectations that I came back about 3 days later to add to it. I absolutely love my tattoo that I'm looking to get another one done. Sergio is wonderful; he's so experienced, professional, & knowledgeable. Sergio has super crazy skills. He knows what he's doing and made me feel super comfortable. Teer tattooed my boyfriend and i must say that he has some crazy skills, too because my boyfriend's tattoo came out quite nicely. Teer and Sergio rock my socks!! He didn't pressure me into getting anything that I didn't want & he was ready & willing to help me with every aspect of my tattoo. Everyone at this shop is so chill and the vibe is super kicked back. Everyone talks with everyone and everyone is friendly. The parking isn't the greatest, but don't let that hold you back from checking this place out. I got my first tattoo done elsewhere & I wish I would've waited and gotten everything done here at Propaganda. These guys really know what they're doing & are all very talented. I recommend this place a zillion times to anyone looking to get inked!!!! =)

so this was my first tattoo, but ive been wanting one for the last 3 years. im really big on text and the meaning of words, and thats what i wanted, a poem. i had been looking at tattoo parlors in san diego for quite some time. ive gone with several friends to get tattooed at several places. a few i liked and many i didnt. some of my friends thought i was making a big deal out of something so simple, text afterall. but i wanted a good experience, with someone talented and knowledgeable. a friend of mine referred me to propaganda so i went and checked it out. it was super bowl sunday and dead as could be, but the environment was chill and relaxed. eric came out and talked to me for a bit about what i wanted etc, i could tell he knew what i was talking about and felt comfortable with what i wanted. so i booked an apt for later in the week with him. i was excited, wednesday rolled around and everything went smoothly, it was an awesome experience. everyone made me feel very comfortable, it took like an hour and a half, but everything was so calm it felt way faster. i spent the time looking around at the awesome art on the walls, listening to the radio they had going or chatting with, my boyfriend, eric and the guys in the shop. it was an awesome first tattoo / experience and i would recommend them to anyone looking to get one.

Pros: DOWN TO EARTH FUNNY DOES A AWESOME JOB

Cons: NOT ALOT OF PARKIING

This place has received 5 stars consistently, all well deserved. This tattoo shop is awesome. I came here because Eric moved here from Above All Tattoo in PB. Eric has done two Tattoos on me and I have recomended him to all my friends wanting tattoo. They have had great experiences with him and with Propaganda. Eric is a true artist not just a tattooer, he took an idea of mine and turned it into an amazing piece of art and when I brought him a picture, he managed to make it even better than the original. He is patient creative, funny and great to spend six hours with while getting tattooed.
I really enjoyed sitting for my tattoo at Propaganda. Some tattoo shops have way to much attitude, this one not at all, the artists are all welcoming and friendly and absolutely know what they are doing. If you are looking for a shop to go to, go here, you will not regret it! It is in a obscure location but that is no problem at all and well worth the trip.

Also, the music was so unpredictable but it was so much fun! I'm so happy w my new tatt I will definitely go back for more when I am in the area..

I visited Propaganda for my first tattoo, entered the place, was welcome right away in a super relaxed atmosphere. I explained my tattoo idea to Teer and he came back 15 minutes later with a design I loved. Nobody is pushy there, everybody has a good sense of humor, a total blast for me. And the result is awesome. I am already thinking about my next tattoo - guess who is going to do it?

I went into this shop wanting a tattoo, and I knew relatively nothing about tattooing. I only had a vision in my mind, and the staff helped me make it a reality! The shop was flawless, and the staff were so nice to me. I didn't expect the level of service that I got, and it really helped to make my first tattoo experience absolutely amazing. I would recommend this shop to any person who wants to have a fun, safe tattoo experience.

This shop did my nose piercing, and did it well! The staff was friendly, and the shop was clean. I would definitely tell everyone to go to Propaganda Tattoo/Piercing.

I heard about Propaganda through a friend that had been there a few weeks before I went in. I saw the work they did for her first tattoo and thought I would talk to them about a design that I had drawn up and wanted. When I went into the shop, the artists were friendly and willing to help me out with any questions I had. After looking through their books and liked what I saw, Sergio (very good artist by the way) set me up for an appointment for 2 days later, so he could take my design and tweak and peak it so it would be exactly what I want. When i went in 2 days later he had the design I had wanted he started inking me up. The whole process took around an hour and a half to 2 hours and it came out fabulous for a great price, half the price of some of the other shops I went to before. I will definitely be going back to them again and telling all my friends to check them out.

I decided to go here after reading all the positive reviews and I am so glad I did!!! The place is clean and fun with lots of examples of their work. I went in and talked with Teer cause I had seen a picture of a flower that he had done that looked similar to what I wanted. He was able to take all the pictures I showed up and come up with the perfect design. I had to set an appointment to come back in but it was worth the wait!!! He did an awesome job!! The colors came out wonderfully and the detail in each flower is amazing!! I felt very comfortable the whole time I was in their, all the guys in their are so nice and fun to be around! And, now its been a little over a week and my tattoo is pretty much healed, so follow their after care instructions, they really work! They say not to put on lotion for two days, and I was hesitant about that, but I followed their instructions and it came out beautifully!! Absolutely nothing bad to say about them!!!!

I decided to go to Propaganda because there were so many good reviews and I now fully understand why. It is a clean, very relaxed atmosphere and all the guys there are friendly and more than helpful. This was my first tattoo and I think it was a great experience. I will definitely go back if I decide to inflict some more pain on myself in the future. They have good prices too and all of the artists are really good. Eric did mine and it couldn't have turned out more perfect. He was super nice too!
