Liberty Tat is a fully licensed and government approved shop.
Dean Angelo is a passionate 28-year veteran tattoo artist that is native to San Diego. The son of a Marine father and spiritual mother, Dean considers himself a working class artist. His career began in juvenile hall drawing on envelopes and tattooing with a staple. Dean’s art works have been featured on TV in the locally shot series Silk Stockings and Renegade. He has done design work for the San Diego Zoo, the USO, In-N-Out Burger, Playboy Magazine, Taesa Airlines, and local businesses.
Tattooing makes Dean happiest because in his own words, “I can relate to my clients better” than the corporate ones. Dean has previously owned Lemon Grove, Spring Valley, and San Diego Tattoo and he wants Liberty Tat to be his best and final shop of his career. As a teenager in the 70’s, he worked not even a block away from where Liberty Tat is now, and Dean also used to shop within the same building that is now Liberty Tat. All work is guaranteed for both artistic and applicable quality, and there is no hourly rate.
Dean opened his own shop, Liberty Tat, in the hopes that he can continue to pursue his dream of creating outstanding art through tattooing without any limitations. Liberty Tat will also offer other highly-skilled, committed, and friendly tattoo artists that Dean himself will deem fit and vet-out before they begin tattooing any of our customers. All other Liberty Tat artists and employees will provide you with the same high-quality level of inking and personal service that Dean demands of himself to uphold. In the future, Liberty Tat will provide body piercing services as well.
Liberty Tat can be found at 3660 Main Street, San Diego, CA. Not only is Liberty Tat in a great centrally located area and easily accessible from the I-5, 15, and 75, but it’s also STEPS away from Gate 29 of the San Diego Naval Base / “32nd Street Naval Base” and near North Island Naval Air Station.
Being near the base provides us with a unique ability to cater to our servicemen and servicewomen while providing them with the highest quality of service and respect that they’ve earned and deserve from each and every one of us. Dean and the Staff at Liberty Tat understand that military life has it’s unique circumstances, therefore we will do whatever we can to make our military family happy and comfortable through flexible scheduling, providing a $30 military ink deal with Military I.D., and also free shuttling to and from the nearby Base. It’s not uncommon for us to work through the night with our sailors and marines to get some ink work completed before deployment. We know that our military is dedicated to all of our fellow Americans, and we want to show our military just how dedicated we are to them as well.
