In 2008, three close friends founded Lucky Vans Tattoo -- Lucky, Van, and Eric. The shop is not your typical tattoo shop. It’s a street shop.

Appointments preferred, and can be booked here. Walk-ins are welcome on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The shop has a humble beginning, with zero business loans and no banks involved. Lucky Vans was put together and founded on the concept of friends and family. It was born and baptized in the struggle, then raised in the hustle of San Francisco’s rough streets and neighborhoods.

As a family-ran shop, Van has often tattooed four generations deep in family lines, from baby boomers to millennials. The shop has never relied on advertising for its patrons. Strictly word of mouth. The art and satisfied customers speaks for itself. San Francisco has supported Lucky Vans through the good times and the bad, and the shop has done the same for its City. When we refer to “San Francisco,” we mean the PEOPLE. The FAMILIES. They have impacted us, and we have colored their lives. We are here to provide a special and memorable experience, with the utmost quality artwork. This is exactly why we have so many people come to us for their first tattoos.

We welcome all walks of life in Lucky Vans tattoo. Inlaws and outlaws are welcome.
