Legend Ink SF - Historic Roots

Shortly after the time when Tony Olivas and the other original godfathers of black & gray tattooing such as Jack Rudy, Brian Everette and Mark Mahoney were redefining modern day photo realistic tattooing, Peter Bogdanov had opened his first tattoo studio in San Francisco in 1993. Two years into tattooing Peter would win awards in best tribal, best large tribal, most unique and best color by showcasing a painterly fine art style never before seen. While Tony Olivas would help define what black & gray tattooing could be, Peter was also busy crossing boundaries providing fine art for such clients as Olympic Athelete Picabo Street, The Black Crows, "The Who's" Pete Townshend, am/fm Radio, The US Post Office and other power house brands such as the NBA and NBC television. From these roots our legends Tony Olivas & Peter Bogdanov bring you Legend Ink San Francisco.
