Eddie Shaw has been tattoing since 2003. Bringing his experiences as an accomplished freelance fine artist, illustrator, and art instructor, he draws from a wide variety of styles and techniques to create custom-designed tattoos that combine both traditional and new school elements. He enjoys detailed black and grey tattooing as well as works in color. He specializes in a variety of styles and techniques from the bold, graphic, yet highly refined, to detailed works of realism and the surreal, as well as custom-designed lettering. Eddie grew up in Meriden, CT and studied Painting and Illustration at the Hartford Art School. He is an Army infantry vet and served in Afghanistan in 2006. Despite harsh and often violent conditions overseas, he managed the resources to set up shop and continued to tattoo fellow soldiers whenever time allowed. He returned in 2007 and has been tattooing professionally ever since. He continues to pursue oil painting, drawing, and illustration, and enjoys tattooing as a way to connect with people through art and a shared passion for life as a collection of experiences.
1. Start with a consultation. Choose an artist from our website whose style matches the look and style of your tattoo project. A consultation gives you a chance to meet the artist and talk about your ideas. Each piece that we do is custom, designed just for you, which makes the consultation an important first step. We can do consultations for pairs and groups, just let us know when you call to book it.
2. Your tattoo appointment will be booked at the end of your consultation, and a $60 non-refundable deposit is required at this time. The deposit will be deducted from the final cost of your tattoo. If you need to reschedule your appointment, please give us at least 24 hours notice, if possible. If you do not call and do not show up for your tattoo appointment, your deposit is forfeit.
3. A waiver is required every time that you have a service performed.
