Tuomas Tarkki (born February 28, 1980 in Rauma, Finland) is a Finnish professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing for Kärpät Oulu in the Finnish SM-Liiga.

After playing junior hockey with Lukko Rauma, including three SM-liiga games as a backup, Tarkki studied at the Northern Michigan University and played four years of college hockey, being named the top goalie in the NCAA in 2005. After college hockey he spent a year in the minor leagues before returning to Finland to replace the injured Andy Chiodo as the Kärpät Oulu starting goaltender.

On December 9, 2006, Tuomas Tarkki made SM-liiga history by facing his younger brother, Iiro Tarkki, who was in goal for SaiPa. This was the first time in the league that two brothers had played against each other in goal. Tuomas made 31 saves and registered a shutout while Iiro, five years his junior, allowed four goals on 20 shots.
