Greg Irons (September 29, 1947November 14, 1984) was a poster artist, underground cartoonist, animator and tattoo artist. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he moved to San Francisco, California in 1967 where he soon found work doing posters for Bill Graham at the Fillmore Auditorium.

After working on the film Yellow Submarine, he returned to work for Graham Productions and soon branched out into album covers and work for the Print Mint Last Gasp Ecofunnies and other local underground publishers. In the mid-1970's he started doing book illustrations mainly for Bellerophon Books. One of his books was a coloring-book format illustration of Chaucer's The Wife of Bath's Prologue and Tale which was issued with The Miller's Tale illustrated by Gilbert Shelton. It was also around this time he began doing tattooing.

On November 14, 1984, while on a working vacation in Bangkok, Thailand, he was struck and killed by a bus.
