Muralist and tattoo artist Mel Waters leaves his mark on San Francisco

From the Carlos Santana tribute wall in the Mission District to his Jerry Garcia piece in the Haight, much of Water’s work celebrates the iconic figures of San Francisco’s past. Mel recently opened his new tattoo parlor and art gallery Moonrise Tattoos and he stopped by KALW to talk about being a new small business owner and leaving his mark on the San Francisco street art scene. 

You can check out Mel Waters new mural with Precita Eyes’ at the Ellis Street Senior Apartments in San Francisco’s Tenderloin.
