Arrows and Embers Custom Tattoo!

Arrows and Embers Custom Tattoo specializes in fine, electric tattooing and has been New Hampshire’s premier destination for award-winning tattoos since 2010. You may have seen Arrows and Embers and the work of it’s artists published in local and international print such as The Hippo, New Hampshire Magazine, The Concord Monitor, Tattoo Revue, Tattoo You Magazine, and Rebel Ink, just to name a few.

At Arrows and Embers we take the time to listen to you and your ideas to design a custom tattoo that exceeds your expectation. If you are looking for flash or pre-designed art, you won’t find any help on our walls. We encourage you to be completely inspired by your own ideas for your tattoo, and to utilize our creative talents and artistic skills for guidance.

We only offer walk-ins whenever we have the time, so it is always best to call ahead first. Walk-ins are first-come first served, CASH ONLY, and *our shop minimum is $130.* You must be IN the shop with cash in hand to get tattooed. Other than that, every tattoo requires a proper consultation and is done by appointment only. When you come in for your consultation, please bring with you all of your ideas, photos, color references, inspiration images, and text (written out with proper spelling). Be sure to also think about your budget if you have one, as that will impact the size, intricacy, color saturation, and more. Every tattoo is priced differently; we cannot quote a tattoo over the phone or internet. Artists can only quote a tattoo during the consultation.



"First tattoo experience and I couldn’t be more happy!!! Sean took my drawing and brought it to life! He’s creative, talented and super intuitive; I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. Professionalism and cleanliness were on point (above and beyond) I walked in and felt immediately comfortable and welcomed. His talents are a hot commodity so if you’re thinking of getting some rocking art on your body, start planning now and try to snag an appointment! Everyone here is talented - you won’t be let down! Thanks A&E!!! See you again soon!"

Amanda Morgan

"Recently had a really fantastic tattoo experience here. The vibe of the shop is so relaxing and welcoming. There is a bit of a wait for any of the artists there, but they were able to get me in sooner than originally scheduled (would have been well worth the wait even if not!). My session with Amy couldn’t have been better. She’s an impressive artist and awesome person. Will definitely be back!"

Mackenzie Dillon

"Jason gave me exactly what I was looking for. I love the tattoo and can't wait to come back for more!"

Sean Noseworthy

"Incredible work absolutely the best! They do amazing work over there just had a piece finished on my arm, came out awesome!"

Brett Navarro

"Sean is incredibly talented and goes above and beyond to make sure your experience is a great one. The references I had are nothing compared to what he actually designs because what his designs are SO much better! It may be a long wait because he's so booked, but he is very much worth the wait. Plus his establishment is beautiful and very, very clean."

Caitlyn Bohanan

“I have 3 tattoos, and my first 2 are by a female artist, and my third is from Sean. My tattoos all have meaning, and Sean tattoos with that meaning in mind. He is brilliant, kind, caring and considerate of your wants and needs. Sean takes his time, talks to you during your session, makes sure you are doing okay and feeling okay. Sean Ambrose is a one of a kind, genuine tattoo artist! I will never go anywhere else, and I can’t wait for Sean to tattoo me again. His shop is clean and well kept. His staff is so kind, and they answer your questions to the point, and get back to you in a short amount of time. I highly recommend Sean to my friends, and strangers. You won’t get this kind of work anywhere else!  Sean Ambrose, 5 stars, brilliant, brilliant artist!! Thank you for a remarkable tattoo experience. Hope to be back soon!”

Heather Greene

"Jason did an amazing job replicating the design I wanted. The colors and blending are great. He's very personable yet professional. I'd recommend Jason to anyone and can't wait to go back to have a little color added to a boring black one now that I see what's possible."

Diane Chaski

"So this was my first tattoo and I can honestly say I will be more then happy to come back to this establishment to get more ink done! OMG it's so nice, everyone there was very patient and understanding. I felt very safe and comfortable because they really take their time and care about creating a one of a kind piece just for you. The work done so clean and professional, my art came out amazing it looks perfect! It really puts one's mind at ease when you sit down and chill music is playing and you're surrounded by gizmo and a temple of Buddha and dragons, with a cool person to talk to. Thank you so much for making the experience a positive one and finally helping me get over one of my fears!"

Brittany Frisoli

"I recently sat for an afternoon with Jay and am just now finding the words to describe how I feel. I have multiple tattoos all with significant personal meaning to me, but this one by Jay is by far the one I hold dearest. At the consultation, I felt his excitement as I described what I wanted. He then took my images and brought everything to life. His lines are crisp, his color work is amazing. I honestly can't sing his praises enough. I'm really looking forward to booking my next consult with him."

Kris Bucyk

"I got my first tattoo last year, with Sean. I was wowed and loved the whole process, from booking with the amazing Jenn to the finished product. I had a life changing journey during April '18 & I wanted to commemorate it. Sean was so booked, I decided to give Amy a go. It was an equally enjoyable process and I couldn't be more pleased. They are great at their craft! The new spot is pretty awesome with free parking as well!"

Carla Mora

"Getting your first tattoo can be scary, but Jay made me feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. He is an INCREDIBLE artist! The piece I got was gorgeous and I'm so glad I decided to go here for my first tattoo!!"

Samantha Ricker

"Hands down the best shop! Absolutely love it! They make you feel very comfortable and two of the nicest guys you will ever meet!!! There work is amazing! Jenn is so sweet and always answers all your questions thoroughly."

Jill Minery

"Amy did my tattoo and I couldn’t be happier. I love working with her. She did an amazing job and I’ll definitely go back to see Amy. The shop is awesome, looks and design are inviting. Amy was such a pleasure. Such a talent and I loved our conversation and hearing about her adventures."

Sandy Frazier

"I had a great project going with Sean and now it's finished and I couldn't be happier with the final piece. The entire process was great from start to finish; Sean really understood what I was looking for and made it into something beautiful, personal, and meaningful, something I am so very proud of. Definitely excited to get more beautiful art done here in the future!"

Krystal Bloom

“When you get tattooed by Sean Ambrose you get way more than a tattoo, you get a life changing experience. Sean puts so much of himself into his work and it is very clear he loves what he does! He is an amazing artist and person! You wont get your everyday walk in off the street pick a picture off the wall tattoo at Arrows and Embers, you will get an original piece of art made with passion and elegant artistry. Working with Sean on my back piece has been a spiritual life changing experience for me and he is the only person who will ever tattoo me! Sean Ambrose and Arrows and Embers Tattoo–miles above the rest–In a category all their own!!! I cannot say enough!"

Shaina Curtin

"Super clean shop with really amazing people! Definitely the best shop in NH in my opinion. Everyone was so nice and friendly and I had a great experience with beautiful work done. Will be back for sure!"

Sean Holden

"Just had my very first tattoo with Jason, and I couldn't be happier. He did spectacular work, he was attentive and pleasant, and made a newbie like me feel very comfortable. The shop was clean and professional, and I couldn't be happier with my choice to work with Arrows & Embers. I can't recommend them highly enough!"
