    I highly recommend Diablo ink tattoo. Sam is great, he does outstanding work. Very professional, responsive and honest. He did a cover up for me, an amazing tattoo for my husband, and gave my daughter her first tattoo that she absolutely loves. We will definitely be going back for more.

    I brought my daughter here to get her nose pierced and she was super nervous! The owner is so efficient, patient, and wonderful that before she could even drop a tear...it was done. My family has been here a few times and it gets 10 stars from me! I appreciate the cleanliness, professionalism, education, and quick service.

    Out here in the Bay Area visiting my mom and wanted to get a meaningful spur of the moment tattoo and messaged the owner Rickey-Lee from Diablo Ink to see if they could accommodate us. He was quick to respond and got us in with Sam. Sam was very nice and patient and combined my moms and my fingerprint in this tattoo. This was my moms first tattoo and she was a champ! Thanks Diablo Ink and Sam for a wonderful and memorable experience!

    Rickey-Lee is an amazing artist, a veteran and all around good guy. The tattoo work is phenomenal and so is the conversation. I'll be going back again soon.

    Sam is the man!! He got me a session the following day of calling, this was my first time getting tatted and I got 5 done back to back, he made the whole process super chill, he got the more sensitive areas done first and out the way which I really appreciated, he also wet wipes down the tats after which I really appreciate over just dry wiping them, he’s a super chill dude and everything was done before I knew it, the time flew! The shop is very cool as well, I’ll be back to more done for sure

    Diablo Ink Tattoo

    Diablo Ink Tattoo, established in 2007, stands as a beacon of artistic excellence and personal expression in the East Bay. At the heart of this creative sanctuary is Rickey-Lee, the owner, whose journey in the tattooing world began in 1991 under the mentorship of “Pops” Saller in San Pedro, California. Rickey-Lee’s naval service allowed him to hone his craft across the globe, from San Diego to Singapore, before he decided to lay down roots and share his passion for all styles of tattooing, from intricate portraits and fine line black and grey to vibrant traditional color, with his community. His dedication is matched by his talented team, including Miss Jessie, a formally trained artist from the Academy of Art, San Francisco, who brings her love for anatomy and pin-ups into her work, and Sam Issersohn, whose multifaceted artistic background infuses his tattoos with a unique blend of graphic design, portraiture, and geometric elements.

    The Diablo Ink family also includes Chase Elsberry, a digital savant and rising star in the tattoo world, and B, a UC Berkeley art graduate with a distinct, bold style that incorporates dark, graphic elements into his body art. Each artist at Diablo Ink brings their own unique flavor to the studio, united by a common thread of artistic integrity, innovation, and a deep commitment to their craft. Together, they create a diverse and welcoming environment where creativity flourishes and clients’ visions come to life. Diablo Ink is not just a tattoo shop; it’s a community where art and personal stories are inked into the skin with precision, care, and a deep respect for the individual’s journey.
