Spirit Gallery Tattoo

Spirit Gallery Tattoo is a custom tattoo studio and fine art gallery located in downtown New London, CT.

Our studio boasts five tattoo artists and one body piercer, bimonthly gallery shows featuring local artists, custom jewelry for sale by local and national artisans, and multiple art workshops every year hosted in the gallery.

With over 2500 square feet of space, clients have room to relax while getting their body art, artists have room to show dozens of large pieces in the gallery, and we even have tables and couches for patrons to lounge in while they browse artist portfolios or take in the latest show.

Committed to the best customer service you can find in the tattoo industry, we offer free consultations for all tattoos and piercing, and will work with you to create the best possible tattoo design for your needs.  You will be greeted and treated with respect - we know that your artwork is important and personal to you, and we take pride in creating one-of-a-kind pieces for our clients every time.

Our tattoo artists all create paintings and drawings outside of tattooing.  Blaze and Dee are realist figure painters, Stacey B combines realism with occasional cartoon characters and bright colors in her paintings, Frank is exploring a series featuring Goldfish (the crackers, not the fish!), and Mike cranks out skeleton and monster sketches on a daily basis that work beautifully as wall art and as tattoos.  We feature online tattoo portfolios on our website,, as well as a blog about tattoos, tattooing, and all things Spirit Gallery.

On the gallery side of the business, we love to show off-beat artworks that might not get accepted into other traditional galleries.  Monsters, graveyard photography, fantasy illustration and spiritual art often are featured here.

In 2010, we hosted a one week Creature Building Workshop for over thirty students with Hollywood sculptor Jordu Schell (  Following this intense and inspiring class, Jordu had a one month show featuring his alien and monster masks.  It was a huge success, and since then we have brought in several artists to teach one-off workshops to the public about painting, drawing and design.

Annually, we host Skin to Canvas, an art show featuring the paintings and drawings of tattoo artists in New England.  Tattoo artists are often painters and creators outside of the tattoo studio, and this show displays their creativity and expression off of the human body.  Look for Skin to Canvas III this summer!

Anyone interested in receiving some great custom body art, selling unique and quirky artwork in the gallery, or hosting a class or workshop in our space should come on down and visit us!  We love providing a place for the public to explore their creativity and experience the connection between fine art and body art.  Our monthly newsletter will keep you updated with the latest shows, offers and promotions happening at the studio.  We look forward to seeing you!
