Your tattoo artists are almost as important as your tattoos themselves. Once you’ve decided you want a tattoo, and whether you choose one of our artists or not, do your research! Read reviews about the shop AND artists, look at the portfolios thoroughly, talk to the artists in person, and ask as many questions as you need. Be sure you are comfortable with this person as you will be in close quarters together when you begin tattooing.
Sean Ambrose – Owner/Artist
Sean Ambrose is the owner of Arrows and Embers and Custom Tattoo and has over fifteen years of experience as a tattoo artist. He can tackle any style you can throw at him and is a self-admitted “tattoo geek” (seriously-just ask him about complimentary textures, the color wheel, or tattoo machines), and he loves tattoos of all shapes and sizes. Sean thrives most when he is allowed a little creative freedom with his clients’ designs; for a guy who considers Nikola Tesla, outer space, and the Illuminati “casual conversation,” the possibilities are pretty much endless.

Will Self – Artist
Will Self is a Texas native and a tattooing powerhouse. With both feet planted in Japanese Traditional and Traditional Americana, he’s all about bold colors, crisp lines, and tattoos that will withstand the tests of time. Will likes to say he makes tattoos that look like tattoos-no BS, just solid, clean work. We’re pretty sure black iced coffee runs through his veins and he’s got a strong affinity for nerd culture, but he’ll give you a damn good tattoo—like your granddad’s, only better.
