Five and Diamond (510 Valencia St., 415/255-9747, www.fiveanddiamond.com) can bring you every aspect of the stereotypical San Francisco experience all in one storefront. Inside this unique space, you’ll find off-the-wall art, unusual clothing, and downright scary jewelry.
Those who make an appointment in advance can also get a tattoo here, or purchase some keen body jewelry. A trip inside Five and Diamond can be an exciting adventure for the bold, but might be a bit much for the faint of heart. Decide for yourself whether you dare to take the plunge.
