Bearcat Tattoo Gallery

For The Love Of The Art

A SAN DIEGO TATTOO GALLERY

From the first step inside, you’ll feel at home. We’re like family here, and you’re always welcome. Once inside, you’ll be greeted by a tight-knit family. Bearcat is a crew of artists that pride ourselves on our passion for fine art and creativity.

From our relaxed, clean, and calm gallery in Little Italy, we create incredible masterpieces in a variety of artistic styles. We each bring our heart, passion, travels, style, personality, and influences into every piece.

Take a look at our artists’ work and set up a time to share your idea with us. We’d love to talk about your concept and get to know each other. You can proceed with your choice of artist, or if you’d like, we can get a feel for your vision and desired style, then introduce you to the artist that can best articulate your vision.
