Our History

It’s not just a shop. It’s a culture.

To provide you with high-quality body art. We understand that tattoos are forever, and a bad tattoo makes forever a very long time. We appreciate that our customers have a choice of tattoo shops, and we want you to continue to choose Spirit Gallery Tattoo for all of your body art and piercing services. We strive to make the time you spend with us enjoyable, a positive experience every time. We recognize that each of our clients is an individual, so there is no flash on our walls. Each tattoo is a custom piece of art designed by our artists just for you. We provide a safe, clean, and comfortable environment, just as you’d find in any other upscale salon or spa. You wouldn’t expect anything less. Neither would we. A little taste of New Orleans hospitality.

Our commitment to excellent customer service and the look and feel of the shop are inspired by New Orleans, a city SGT owner Lari Mostro fell in love with so completely, he wanted to bring a little bit of New Orleans charm home to downtown New London. The art, architecture, culture, and history were inspiring, but the people even more so. Everyone he encountered was so genuinely friendly, treating a tattooed northern stranger like a long-lost friend. This exceptional attitude eventually became our high customer service standard. Add a dash of New Orleans Voodoo (check out our shrine to Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau!), and welcome to Spirit Gallery Tattoo!
