Burrowed among such historical downtown sights as Union Square and the Chinatown gates, Moth and Dagger Tattoo Studio leaves its own permanent mark on San Francisco by outfitting the city's residents with custom tattoos. Well-rounded inksmiths Mario Delgado, Justin Davis, and Joe Kelly run the shop, and all are trained in their own unique styles. Mario specializes in realism, sprawling familiar images across limbs and buzzing them to life in full color or black and gray. Justin represents a more familiar approach with traditional American and Japanese designs. Joe's specialty is pointillism or stippling–creating intricate images out of thousands of little dots. When they're not sketching new images, the trio is fixing or covering up old tattoos, allowing clients to finally have the confidence to leave the house naked.
