San Diego’s Best Tattoo Shop Just Got Better with a New Location in Pacific Beach

For the last 19 years, Pacific Beach’s Funhouse Tattoo Shop has been providing the highest standard of body art in San Diego. Featuring pieces like breathtaking portraits of Polynesian, Japanese, traditional, black and grey, and nautical ink, we really offer it all from a group of the most talented, passionate artists in the industry. Despite the dense competition in the area, we have continued set a new standard for tattooing in the community and are ready to take our commitment to tattooing further. We will open our new location, Funhouse Tattoo: International Guesthouse across the street from our Garnet Avenue original, but with a new and inventive twist.

An International Hub of Body Art

Beyond the 9 award-winning artists that are featured at our original location, we will invite some of the greatest tattoo artists from all over the world to display their talents for our ink-hungry customers. To cultivate a new level of body art in the local community, we are going to be bringing in international tattoo artists to show off their skills. We intend to build a truly unique tattoo experience from a dynamic lineup of all-star artists from across the globe. This will establish the International Guesthouse as a mecca for the vast world of tattoo styles and body art philosophy right in our backyard. The new spot will even feature a VIP backlot parking space for our customers, which is unheard of in Pacific Beach.

How Tattooing at the International Guesthouse Works

Similar to the current location of Funhouse Tattoo, artists will be commissioned for their featured visit. We invite world-renowned artists to come showcase their skills in San Diego where as you would never get to see these people. Owner, Seth Reynolds explained, “You’ll be able to get tattooed by your favorite artists from around the world that you might never get to work with otherwise.” This is going to up open up the tattoo community in San Diego to a new league of expert artists that is relatively unheard here. Still under construction currently and set to open in early August. This 3,000-square foot studio will welcome 9 artists at a time and features a backside guesthouse equipped with a full kitchen and bathroom where the artists will reside during their time with us.
