About Mel Waters

Photography courtesy of the SF Weekly.

Mel has been drawn to art for as long as he can remember. His earliest artistic influences were cartoons and comic books. Later, 90’s graffiti, hip hop culture and growing up in San Francisco, inspired and propelled him down the path he continues on today.  

Mel is available for artwork commissions and takes tattoo work by appointment at his San Francisco based shop, Moonrise Tattoo.
