I??ve written this before, but it??s no less true: there are tons of tattoo shops in San Diego, and most are in PB! You could walk into any number of them and walk out with ink on you in no time. But finding a place that truly takes pride in doing custom work, to be deeply involved in the process and have a fun, relaxed atmosphere is an entirely different thing. Mum??s Custom Tattoo is one of those shops and excels at it all.
Located down Garnet Ave, a few blocks away from the main hub of bars and clubs, Mum??s opened two years ago after the current owners had gotten fed up working under other owners who were less than stellar. What that means is, they wanted to work with owners who actually knew the tattoo industry rather than some guy who sees it as just a fat paycheck. With five full time artists, the shop can do anything from a silver dollar sized piece to full body suits. The shop is clean, open and is way bigger than it looks from the outside; it nearly reaches all the way back to the street behind them!
The coolest part is the amount of creativity that is present in the shop. There??s framed flash art on the walls, but it??s more for decoration or reference. There??s also a sizable library open to customers who may want to browse and get the creative juices working for their piece. The artists want the customer to be happy with their new ink first and foremost, so all these references help to capture exactly what should be done! With a strong clientele and steady new business despite the bad economy, Mum??s Custom Tattoo is definitely a cut above the rest.
