In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, tattoo parlors are facilities where the player can include tattoos on their player character, Carl Johnson. Much like haircuts, tattoos increase player respect from fellow Grove Street Families members as well as sex appeal from girlfriends.
There are a total of four tattoo parlors in San Andreas. Of the four parlors in the game, only one has a specific name, while the other three assume a less descriptive storefront with only a "Tattoo(s)" signage.
The tattoo parlors include:
- An unnamed "Tattoos" parlor in Idlewood, Los Santos, close to Reece's Hair & Facial Studio and across the road from a Well Stacked Pizza outlet;
- An unnamed "Tattoos" parlor in El Corona, Los Santos;
- Hemlock Tattoo in Hashbury, San Fierro, next door to a Sub Urban outlet; and
- An unnamed "Tattoo" parlor in Redsands East, Las Venturas, at a corner store next door to a Gay Gordo's Bouffant Boutique.
Players can only apply tattoos to their player character's upper body, but have the option of picking any one of its multiple parts, including the upper and lower parts of their arms, the upper and lower parts of their backs, the left and right chest, and the stomach. Players can also remove existing tattoos at the tattoo parlors.
The range of available tattoos depends on the city the player in. The Idlewood and El Corona parlors offer the same selections of tattoos, while Hemlock Tattoo and the Redsands East parlor offer different sets of tattoos each. Prices for tattoos range from a low of $25 to a high of $720, while removal of each tattoo cost $400.
The following is a complete range of tattoos available to the player by tattoo parlors.
