Tattooed Mom review image

Tattooed Mom


530 South St, Philadelphia
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Tattooed Mom should really be categorized as a museum - one that just happens to have a bar inside it. The walls, top to bottom, are covered in years of stickers, spray paint, and sharpie, and it would take an exhaustive “I Spy” search to pick out all of the different murals by both famous and local street artists. It’s so quintessentially South Street in the way that pretty much anything goes - whether that’s craft night on Sundays, drinks with cotton candy and pop rocks, or literally just scrawling whatever you want onto their walls without any concern for being thrown out.
