From the first tag to the latest wheat paste, upstairs at TMom’s has been home to a rich history of local & international street art. This is an ever changing gallery: an un-curated & spontaneous outpouring of creativity by local & traveling artists and the countless visitors who leave their unique mark here nightly.
The birth of the upstairs as a vibrant art space is in part tied to a 1999 exhibition by brothers Noah & Nathan Rice. That year the Brothers Rice brought their umbrella wheat pastes we’d been admiring around South Street to Mom’s. All 5000 of them.

Be still, beating hearts: Tattooed Mom is open indoors again! We missed y’all SO much, and we have so much catching up to do—walls to draw on, special moments to celebrate, dum dums to enjoy, chilled drinks to sip, tots to scarf down… AND MORE TO COME! Let’s not waste any more time. Here’s what’s up at TMoms:
Update, 8/12/2021: As mandated by the City of Philadelphia we will now require proof of vaccination for all indoor guests. Unvaccinated guests or guests with no vaccination card are welcome to enjoy our outdoor seating, take out, and delivery options.
In the words of the modern philosopher Beyonce, “Who run the world? Girls“—and honestly, where is the lie? Every single day mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, daughters, and other maternal figures wake up & choose to make the world go round.
For Mother’s Day 2021, we wanted to honor the hard work of all mothers & maternal figures by spotlighting a few mother-run organizations that are doing vital work in our communities:
Mothers In Charge – A violence prevention, education and intervention-based organization that advocates for and supports those affected by violence.
Oshun Family Center – Providing racially concordant care to members of the Black community that are struggling to cope with life transitions, especially those impacted by postpartum mood changes, birth, and racial trauma.
Rae’s Roots – A wellness tea company for mothers, founded by a Chinese American mother.
PS. A mom can also be a place you go to eat & drink, where you feel safe & loved :’) Hint hint, it’s Tattooed Mom, and we love you <3
Missing cozy afternoons on a comfy Tmoms couch? Yearning for tater tots & late night hangs in a bumper car? Fantasizing about sitting at the bar with less than 6ft between you and the rest of the world??

UPDATE FOR 5/18/21: We’ve added a few important resources ahead of the May 18th primary election! For more information, check out A Closer Look at the Philadelphia Ballot (jump to section). Strangely, we weren’t expecting the issue of voter suppression to have changed so rapidly between November 2020 and now—YIKES!—so please note that some of the resources in that section may not reflect the most up-to-date information.
As part of our ongoing commitment towards conscientious activism and anti-racism, TMoms will be using this space, as well as our social media pages, to aggregate resources & information regarding:
No radical movement begins or ends with voting, but voting is a necessary & individual choice with a complicated historical significance. Voting is a privilege, and we must use that privilege along with activism & community care to help the most vulnerable among us.
This space is a work in progress. If you’d like to bring additional resources to our attention, feel free to email us.
