In the PlayStation 2 version of GTA San Andreas, Hemlock Tattoo is inaccessible to the player, resulting in the player having no access to Hemlock Tattoo's unique selection of tattoos and the Hemlock Tattoo is only can be accessible via Hidden Interiors Universe. This problem was rectified for succeeding versions of the game. However, the PlayStation 4 re-release of the game apparently shares it's tattoos with the Los Santos tattoo shops, presumably an oversight.
- The tattoo, "San Fiero" is misspelled as it is missing an 'R'. This isn't the only cause, for the non-interactive San Fierro Rifa gang tag is too written with only one 'R'.
- This is the only named tattoo parlor in the game, but it still says only "Tattoo Parlor" when entered, and it shares the same interior with the other tattoo parlors in the game.
