EC Tattoo is a San Diego Tattoo shop that has been providing local San Diegans and travelers high quality tattoos since 2007. We are not your average “pick form the wall” tattoo shop. Our hiring process for a new artist is vigilant, ensuring we only employ the best of the best. It’s important we maintain our stellar reputation and we do so by providing best in class artwork, a sanitary environment and premium customer service. Our commitment to strict hiring standards ensures you only work with highly talented tattoo artists.
Our process for a new tattoo creates a relaxed environment but also enables you to work with your artist on perfecting your concept prior to committing to your artwork. You can come by the shop with an idea in mind and invite an artist to contribute feedback to improve your concept. Some of our clients want to pick a tried and trusted design while others want to ensure their tattoo will be one of a kind. Whatever your style or thought process is, we’ll be there to add to the creative process, anyway we can.
We understand deciding on a tattoo is an important life decision so we listen intently to our customers. Once we thoroughly understand your vision, we match an artist that has the particular style, skill set and relevant expertise to ensure your tattoo turns out perfect. From experience, we have learned that working closely with our clients upfront, results in a remarkable tattoo and another very satisfied client. When you come to EC Tattoo be prepared for a thorough initial discussion, being paired with an artist that matches your specific needs, a sketch up for your approval and a tattoo that is sure to impress.
We are extremely proud to have hundreds of clients that are more than satisfied with their tattoos. More often than not, they come back for a second & third tattoo and refer friends to our shop. We hope you will become part of our tattoo community and we are hopeful to turn your artwork vision into an everyday reality.
Stop by today to get acquainted with our team and take action on your first or next tattoo. We look forward to serving you and developing a long term relationship.
