Not what you'd expect.

Unless you're in the know about Dominick and Pia's Pizza or remember The Loft or one of our building's former lives, chances are you've never been down Brook St. in Waterbury. The quiet one way spits out on the cobblestone stretch of East Main Street by UCONN Waterbury and the Palace Theater. Our custom tattoo studio is nestled here, welcoming both appointments and walk ins. Private sessions are available. Dora and Heather create all custom tattoos in a clean and comfortable environment. The aesthetic is deserving of a mention, a page right out of Weirder Homes and Gardens. Stop in and say hey. See for yourself.

When coming to the studio after 4:30 pm or on Saturday there is free street parking on Brook Street. For small appointments before 4:30 the metered parking is $1 an hour. For longer appointments before 4:30 we recommend parking in the municipal parking garage on the right when you first turn on to Brook St.

Hours

Sometimes as early as 11 or 12 but sometimes a little later, but if we don’t have appointments we may not come in, or maybe we will, kinda depends on the day. Usually we’re in by 1:00 if we are tattooing and most often we close around 8:00 but sometimes a lot later, and other days we leave early. Again, it’s a crap shoot. If you want to see if we’re here, just call! If you want to know that we’re here, set up an appointment, even just to chat or check out the space! Basically, we’re like the wind, we come and we go, and even though we’re here more often than not you can never really be sure of when that’s going to be.

for Tattoo Appointments

EarthshipStudios@gmail.com

Email is the best way to get in touch! It’s tough to answer the phone while we’re tattooing and by keeping all of your information in our email we are better able to stay organized. We appreciate your patience while we get back to you. Due to the high volume of inquiries we receive it can sometimes take a few days or more.

 

If you could include the following information in your initial message we can get the ball rolling faster:  

Name, phone number, rough size estimate (comparisons help, like “palm sized”), brief description of your idea, and your availability. Please feel free to attach any reference photos.

 

WE DO NOT TATTOO ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18. Not even with parental consent!

 

Appointments require a $60 + tax deposit (single sitting) or $120 + tax deposit (large scale, multiple sittings). For multiple sitting pieces, the deposit is deducted at the final sitting. Deposits can be paid in person by appointment or online via Paypal ($2 fee applies).

 

READ THIS! : DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. DEPOSITS CAN BE TRANSFERRED WITH 48 HOURS NOTICE. APPOINTMENTS RESCHEDULED OR CANCELLED WITH LESS THAN 48 HOURS NOTICE ARE SUBJECT TO FORFEITURE OF DEPOSIT.

 

Consultations are not always necessary, but we may need one if we’re getting into a large or particularly involved piece.

 

MINIMUM: $80 + tax    *   HOURLY RATE: $120/hr + tax
