The Truth started back in 1991 when Peter Bogdanov set out to start a career as an artist. After his best friend, biggest fan, and future wife Donna Adelita invited him to an art class at SFCC, the rest would be an epic artistic history. Peter started tattooing in 1993 as the owner of Demented Again on Potrero Hill. Shortly after the two would partner to form Beyond The Flesh in the SOMA area. The studio would move locations one more time in California to the Excelsior before opening up The Urban Soul in Portland. The Truth Tattoo was opened in Pacifica in 2012.
The Truth is all about history.

Of course you do. We've got answers! We've collected frequently asked questions
Yes. It is a very simple answer. If you are not 18 you cannot get a tattoo in California and not at The Truth. Do come back to us when you are of age. Let's rock then!
We run day time hours for all persons 18 to 20 years of age who want to get tattooed. If you are under 21 you can visit the shop between 1pm and 6pm and schedule your sessions.
Common sense and respectable artists is where it all starts. There are no laws against allowing tattooing when alcohol is around. Yes, it does thin your blood, but no, it does not affect your healing or procedure. That is a uneducated myth. Just take your tattoo seriously and drink within boundaries. Don't ask us to tattoo you when you have had too much to drink and we won't laugh at you - promise.
Remember that we are artists. We have a gift to help other people see things they can't. So just ask for a design consultation and let's see where we can take you. Let our imagination be your limits.
