Custom Tattooing by Zeph Fish


I am pursuing an MFA degree in Arts and Social Practice at Portland State University and am focusing on socially-engaged projects. For the time being I am not taking tattoo requests.

I've been tattooing since 1998, mostly in the SF Bay Area. Most recently I worked at Mermaids Tattoo in San Francisco’s Mission District. I also tattooed extensively at Diving Swallow Tattoo (Oakland) and before that at Black and Blue Tattoo (San Francisco).

I've also worked in Philly, New Orleans, Spain, Australia, and Canada, for short and long stints. Thank you to: Paradise Tattoo (Key West, FL); No Ka Oi Tattoo (Philadelphia, PA); Aart Accent Tattoo (New Orleans, LA); Inner Vision Tattoo (Sydney, Australia); Anubis Warpus Tattoo (San Francisco, CA); Voodoo Tattoo (Barcelona, Spain); Bodhi Tattoo (Vitoria, Spain); Urge Tattoo (Victoria, BC); Cottage 13 (Hamilton, Ontario).

Thanks to all my clients for trusting me with your skin, and for your support with my new endeavors!
