Tino di Camaino (c. 1280 - c. 1337) was an Italian sculptor.

Born in Siena, the son of the architect Camaino di Crescentino, he was a pupil of Giovanni Pisano, whom he hepkled in the works at the façade of the Cathedral of Siena. Later Tino followed his master at Pisa, where in 1311 he became responsible of the works of the Cathedral. Four years later he executed the funerary monument of Emperor Henry VII; subsequently he executed similar works in Siena and Florence, including the famous tomb of the Bishop Orso at Santa Maria del Fiore and the tomb of Gastone della Torre in the museum of Santa Croce.

From 1323 he worked in Naples, under King Robert of Anjou. Again he executed several funerary monuments, including those of Catherine of Austria in San Lorenzo Maggiore and Queen Mary of Hungary in Santa Maria Donnaregina.

He died in Naples around 1337.
