5 Year Anniversary Art Show

Hi everyone! Yes you read that right.  This October marks 5 years that Nautilus Tattoo has been open.  If it wasn’t for our loyal clients, it wouldn’t have been such a memorable and fun 5 years.  To show our appreciation, we are putting on a party.  On October 12th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. we are having an art show featuring artwork from artists and tattooers from all over the country.  Make sure to come out and join in the festivities.

Hi everyone. Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  Been super busy with some cool things with the shop.  In the mean time, Its that time again! Rethink Your Ink Laser Tattoo Editing and Laser Tattoo Removal will be back at Nautilus Tattoo answering any questions or concerns you have about laser removal on July 25th- 27th. If you or anyone you know has any less than stellar work on them we recommend coming down and talking. For more info you can call the shop at 860-372-4741 or go to here.


Rethink Your Ink March 26th & 27th

Its that time again.  After a few month hiatus from being on the road, Rethink Your Ink will be back at Nautilus on March 26th & 27th.  So if you or someone you know has a less than savory tattoo that they want either removed or lightened enough to be covered with something, now is your chance.

Winter Update 2013

Hello everyone!  First I want to wish everyone a happy new year.  Its already looking like 2013 is going to be a monumental year for Nautilus Tattoo.  Not only myself, but everyone at the shop has a busy few months lined up, filled with art shows and conventions.  So keep your eyes peeled here for updates on all of that.

It’s been a really good winter season so far (minus the occasional snow storm).  Our Tomorrow May Never Come flash day was a huge success.  We had a huge turnout and we got to do some really fun tattoos.  I would like to extend my thanks to everyone at Nautilus as well as Ben Reigle, Orrin Hurley, James ‘Diego’ Spurlin and David Nielsen for coming out for the day and helping with the tattoos.  I also want to extend a huge thanks to everyone that came down, got tattooed and celebrated the world ending!

Next I’m happy to announce that I have designed a new shirt for Nautilus.  They are a two location print on black Gildan shirts.  They are available in youth large to xxx-large.  They are $20.

Lastly, my schedule for tattooing is filling up quickly so make sure to come down soon to make an appointment before the wait gets long!

Thank you,


“Tomorrow May Never Come” $50 flash tattoo day!

Yes you read that right folks.  The Mayan calendar supposedly has predicted that the world will end on December 21, 2012.  So we figured why not go out with a bash!

On December 21st from 10 am to 8 pm, we are doing $50 flash designs ranging from end of the world craziness, randoms and everything in between.  We will be doing cash only this day and only 18 or older with ID.  We will also be having a TON of awesomely talented artists from other shops helping out.  The confirmed artist list is as follows:

The confirmed artist list for this event is:

On top of the tattoos we will be holding a number of raffles .  The biggest being a chance to win this original painting from our shop manager/apprentice Jim Adams.

Then after we’re done tattooing, we are having an after celebration party just up the road at Rivals Bar & Grill located at 2095 Berlin Turnpike, Newington CT.

So come on out, it should be a super fun time!  For more questions just give the shop a call at 860-372-4841
