is Northern California's premiere, award winning tattoo facility located in the heart of historic down town Vallejo. Founded in 1999 by a local artist, Hot Ink began as a small, flash based tattoo parlor. In 2007 the shop was purchased by the current owner, and artist, Rio. With a strong sense of customer appreciation, and a team of award winning artist's, Hot Ink has become a substancially recognizable name in the California tattoo industry. The continually awarded facility is dressed in neo-gothic decor with dark colors, spa-like accents, and natural wood floors. The staff at Hot Ink is incredibly talented, knowledgeable, friendly, and eager to work with each client. The Artist roster is Bingle, Greg, Mishayla, Austin, and Alex, who each have their own specialty, and style.
