From the first contact via email, they set me up with an artist who could bring my idea to life! I have gotten so many compliments about my piece and I can’t say enough great things about the entire staff! Friendly and personable, they make you feel right at home! I can’t wait for my next piece!

Very clean shop, Gary is the man he made my mandolin tattoo look great even after I was very indecisive about what exactly I wanted. Staff was accommodating to my friend and I in getting an appointment relatively soon after we made it and the price is low for the quality of the work. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a good shop in CT More...

I like to get new tattoos every time I go to a new state, so naturally while I was passing thru Connecticut, I was in need of a clean and professional tattoo parlor. Thanks to yelp I located this awesome shop just out of New Haven. Just from walking inside you could tell these guys were professional and cared about their art. It was also a barbershop, which I thought was pretty cool. I was greeted warmly even though I was just a walk in customer, a lot of places are kind of snooty about walk ins. Immediately one the artists Ryan was available to listen to what I wanted and quickly whipped up a design for me. Ryan was a super nice guy and he did a fantastic job of my tattoo. It was everything I wanted. If you're passing thru like me or live in the area, I highly recommend this place. The price of my piece was very reasonable in my opinion as well. Thanks again Lucky Soul tattoo! More...

Really, the pictures speak for themselves. Tracey did a double cover for me that is simply stunning. What you don’t see in the pictures... the shop is spotless, Tracey’s work ethic is absolutely incredible and her humility is something I strive for, not always to her success. The IG post T put up just showed a cool tattoo. It did not show the tat cover or the surgical scar she not only covered, but her placement and shading camouflages the vast amount of missing tissue.

Finally decided to cover up an old, dark tattoo and I am so happy I came here. Katrina went above and beyond and I am absolutely thrilled with the final result. She is brilliant with the needle and her work is truly exquisite. The shading and details are more beautiful than I ever thought possible. The shop itself is bright, clean, and super friendly. I thought the atmosphere was quite pleasant, which is important for appointments that are 6+ hours. Truly can't recommend it enough. Thank you for an amazing experience! More...

If you want a great tattoo, go to a tattoo artist. If you want a great tattoo artist, go to Lucky Soul.

I haven't got a tattoo in a very long time. Last one was from Danny Williams in Bridgeport about a million years ago. So, to say the least I've been out of the game for a while. Started searching around on the internet and also began asking people. Everyone seemed to say someone different, however Lucky Soul came up a couple of times. So, I was like OK, let me check this place out. Much to my surprise when I entered I was greeted by a young lady who apparently was the "Shop Manager". Wow! Tattooing really has come a long way. Way different from what I remember. The place looked very clean and the atmosphere is very inviting. There's even a barber doing haircuts and shaves. I explained to the shop manger (sorry, can't think of her name) that I was hoping to make an appointment with Jim, the owner because I heard that he does great work. I was told that Jim was booked out through November. I then explained that I was looking to get a St. Michael tattoo and the reason I asked for Jim was because I heard that he does great black and portrait work. The tattoo I wanted has a face, so I figured Jim would be the guy. I was then told that another tattooist also does that type of work. She then asked me if I'd like to meet him. I was then introduced to "Gary Noriyuki". Once I showed Gary what I wanted he said that it wouldn't be a problem. So I was like, Let's do it!! We made an appointment about 6 weeks out. We went back and forth about ideas together a couple of times and when the day came I was so excited l. Let me tell you people that Gary was fantastic!! Not just with his tattoo skills but his whole demeanor. By time I was done with him I felt like he was an old friend. Not sure if the equipment is newer since the last time I got a tattoo or if it's Gary's technique but absolutely no pain or discomfort at all! Great experience and I totally recommend Lucky Soul and Gary!! I'm already thinking about making another appointment with Gary ASAP. More...

I was honored to be with my friend as he got his first tattoo by Chad at LST. The tattoo looks great, Chad is awesome, and it was an overall really awesome experience overall.We were lucky to have found Chad. The more we got to know him, the more we realized how good of a fit he was for my friend's tattoo! One of his interests is in Nordic designs, which was what my friend was looking for, and Chad even created custom artwork that makes the tattoo even more personal and special. He helped guide my friend with this important decision without rushing him or any pressure. We appreciated his candor throughout the process. It was easy to go back and forth with designs and modifications - in person as well as over email. Chad was kind, warm, and very talented. It was chill chatting with him during the ~1.5 hour tattoo process. It was interesting hearing about his life and his passions, making the tattooing a breeze! We felt the connection. He even gave us a hug at the end. Ultimate cost was $230 (including $60 deposit for the custom design work). Two weeks later, the tattoo is healing great and looks awesome. More...

Gary did an amazing job!  He was very friendly, and reassuring,  and very skilled at what he does. He did a great job of asking questions, and making suggestions when his expertise could help (e.g. fine lines fade faster, so I should take that into consideration when designing/sizing the tattoo), which means I got something I will be happy with for a lifetime.  Highly recommended!

One of the best shops I have ever been in! The artists are incredible and their work is some of the best I have ever seen! My favourite tattoo was done by Tracey and I can’t say enough good things about her. She was professional, accommodating, kind, and she made sure that I was always comfortable and at ease... The other artists have amazing portfolios too, Jim Lopresti’s portraits are absolutely amazing and he is a kind, generous, and welcoming guy! I drove six hours to get there, totally worth the drive! I can’t recommend this place enough! Seriously, go get a tattoo from these great folks! You’ll be glad you did! More...

I have had many tattoos done here. The shop is immaculate and all the artists are not only amazing in their own right, they make you feel welcome. I always feel like I am hanging out with my friends when I am there. I have always felt that I was never rushed, that the time was taken to make sure my tattoo was not only perfect, but special to me.

I switched over to Lucky Soul after looking for a tattoo artist for years who understood what I wanted when I couldn't articulate my ideas and had vague descriptions of my thoughts. While Tracy came highly recommended, I ended up going with Gary as my artist. I've had two pretty big pieces done by him so far and plans to finish more in the very near future. Not only is the line work and coloring incredible, I get stopped repeatedly to discuss the content and quality of my tattoo itself. Gary made me feel incredibly comfortable, which is good when you're sitting for a few hours, and I swear I've told him more than I've ever told my therapist in the past. ;) More...

I have received tattoos from both Jim and Tracey at Lucky Soul, and can't say enough how great they both were. I came to them with basic ideas that they were able to translate into beautiful artwork. I liked the fact that they explained to me why some things that I wanted were not a good idea, would not look good or stand the test of time More...

Jim, Tracy and Michelle have been part of my family’s life for many years. They did many tattoos for my daughter and I got my very first on 11/5/16, in honor of my daughter on the one year anniversary of her passing. Not only are they great artists, they are so thoughtful and are always there to support their friends and customers in their hour of need. Best group of friends you can ask for. And their work is beyond reproach!! More...

I came here simply for a consult for two tattoos I was thinking about. Ryan Miller, who was my artist, was able to fit me in right away for one of the tattoos. It came out so well. The following week I went in my other one, he custom made and drew it on my arm. Everyone loves how they turned out! The lines were so clean and the colors were so vibrant!! I went back today for 2 small tattoos with Ryan again and they also came out so well!! I love all them with my heart!! All of artists are so talented so you most certainly will come out with an art piece. I highly, highly recommend this shop!! More...

Calvin is amazing, I followed him to this shop because I can't imagine anyone else tattooing me, and I'm so glad I did!

I'm not fully tattooed, but I have my fair share and I am somewhat of a tattoo snob. I know what I want and like and Tracy Rose (proprietor) gave me exactly what I need. She took her time designing, altering, color scheming, placement and then tattooing. She is easy to talk to about ideas and is very open to incorporating your vision with traditional tattoo look. Her other tattooers seem to be cut from the same cloth and the shop is very cool and pumps some old school rock. Everyone here are friendly, professional and have their own unique aesthetic. They only hire and put highly skilled and acclaimed artists on the needle here. I know why clients come from great distance to get their tattoo here and they certainly delivered today. I highly recommend checking out their social media and making an appointment or if you are local just walk in.I will be back for my next piece and others to follow. Tracy already has my vision and scope in mind and creative is in the works. Enjoy and Peace out! More...

this is a great tattoo shop! there are a variety of male and female artists to choose from and they have their portfolios in the waiting area where you come in which is really cool to browse. Bronwyn dis my rib tattoo and she was amazing. she was kind, quick, friendly, creative, gentle, professional and carried a nice conversation with me through the occasional cringe. he design is better than I could have imagined and I will be booking her for all my future work in the area. the price a little higher than expected but i love the work so much so I cannot complain. the location is through a door and up the stairs in a building with a few business and at was confused where to go at first because the small paper sign on the door was not very eye catching.

I LOVE LUCKY SOUL TATTOO! The ambiance is awesome, the prices are reasonable (but not cheap!), the staff is so friendly and creative. I showed Dora a painting I did and asked her to make it more geometric and less colorful and she did it PERFECTLY. I am so in love with my new ink, it took her ~3 hours to complete it. And from chatting with the other artists, it seems as though any one would have done a fantastic job. More...

I recommend them to everyone and can't wait to go in April to finish a piece Tracey started years ago and to get matching mother daughter tattoos. Thank you lucky soul. Always a great experience.

I can't wait to get my 7th tattoo. But, only will be #2 done by LST. I love Lucky Soul Tattoo! They are the best artists by far in my opinion. Only wish all mine tattoos were done by them, but at least they will be doing the special one in memory of my sister Dawn Marie. I had one done on my back shoulder for my kids and that too is very special. I love it and I'm sure I'll love the one for my sister as well. It most likely won't be my last. I hope to have 5 out of my 6 tattoos I have at this moment reworked by them. More...

I just got my first tattoo at Lucky Soul with Matthew Kiley and I couldn't be any happier with my experience. A few weeks ago, I visited the shop and met with Matt briefly, who gave me his card and told me to email him some ideas for my tattoo. I wanted an "eye" that was simple, girly and unique (I'm a to-be Optometrist). About 2 weeks later, Matt sketched up a drawing for me and I thought it was perfect. I was scheduled for an appointment a few days later (today) and am currently in love with my new tattoo! The shop is clean and cozy, and Matt was great at calming my nerves (in hindsight, I had nothing to be worried about). Definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for great artists and service!

I would definitely go back to Matt without a doubt for another tattoo & I would highly recommend him to anybody !!!!! He is the nicest guy he made me feel so comfortable & relaxed though the tattoo he offer to stop if I felt I needed him to,we talk the whole way though the tattoo he really put me at ease I was so scared  !!!!  I would definitely give him 5 stars all the way !!!!!!!!

Just got my first tattoo here -- hurt like hell but Matt was SO PATIENT and kind and not at all judgmental. The butterfly was estimated to take half an hour but I kept needing to take breaks, and he emphasized over and over again that that was totally fine. It ended up taking over an hour and he was wonderful from beginning to end, not to mention SO TALENTED as an artist. I love the end product so so much. I can't recommend Matt more highly, as well as all of Lucky Soul. :) More...

Let's start by stating that Lucky Soul has some of the best tattoo artists in the industry. If you never had a tattoo, or you're in need of another look no further. Jim,Tracey and all of the artists here are extremely friendly and skilled. They will listen to your ideas. Come up with a good plan that you are comfortable with. I recently had some very tough cover up work to do. Jim sat with me and took in all my ideas. I was very pleased and quite frankly blown away with the results. I recommend you check them out.Keep up the great work! More...

For my First Tattoo at age 49 these guys were GREAT! All the artists and the owners were "up beat" smiling, engaging and make a great atmosphere. My Artist Beth is a new higher from Maine and she was exquisite. Very informative very engaging her technique is great. She stopped and told me everything before she did it. She also stopped every so often to check that I was OK. I can honestly say that had I not read all the good reviews and the awards I would still not had a tattoo. One of my biggest concerns all these years in searching for the right place was the shop and its cleanliness. Thanks Yelp and Thanks Lucky Soul! I would give Beth an A+ and the entire shop and experience an A+ its no wonder why they have awards from the Advocate. The owners are really doing the right thing there. Great Job Guys! More...

Extremely grateful that I was introduced to Lucky Soul! Everyone there is awesome and all artists create amazing works if art! Currently have a half sleeve in progress by Tracey. Her talent, skill, and personality preceded her! It's been an amazing ride watching Tracey bring my tattoo to life! I do not believe I would receive such quality and care had I chosen a different artist's studio! I highly recommend Lucky Soul Tattoo and all their artists, especially Tracey Rose. I do not believe I will be in the market for a tattoo artist for quite some time. More...

A few weeks back I stopped by Lucky Soul with my daughter to drop off some pictures I wanted designed into a new tattoo. Yesterday I met with Beth to review her design and get a new tattoo. My hopes were she would have a design ready that I would love from first sight. She did. I was looking for her to design a tattoo that loosely represented the ships I was on in the US Navy based off their ships crests. What I got was a one of a kind tattoo taking key elements from each crest melding them together to give what I was looking for. Can't wait to get back in and finish. Thank you Beth! More...

I've gotten 4 of my 6 tattoos at Lucky Soul (should have been all 6), by various artists, and I'm always amazed at the quality of work and professionalism and the creativity. I just got my 6th one done last weekend by Stewart and I was and still am blown away. He created the tattoo after hearing some of my interests and it came out better than I could have ever imagined! I'll be back in a few weeks to finish the piece. Seriously, if you're looking to get a tattoo, don't go anywhere but Lucky Soul! More...

I just had my first (ever) tattoo done at Lucky Soul and literally couldn't be happier. For personal reasons I had to schedule my appointment with less than two weeks notice and also needed the entire piece to be completed in one session. I was so appreciative that Stewart could accommodate both requests. He is extremely easy to communicate with; a superb artist and professional who put my mind at ease immediately. I brought Stewart some mehndi patterns that I love and explained what I was looking for and he drew the whole piece by hand. The final stencil exceeded my expectations and once the session began he even free-handed some details that put the piece over the top. It is gorgeous. His lines are SO crisp and delicate and he really captured the beauty and whimsy that I had pictured in my head. The design is very intricate and fairly aggressive for a first tattoo but I felt confident from beginning to end that I would get exactly what I wanted. I seriously can't say enough good things about Stewart and the caliber of his work. Everyone in the shop - Jim, Tracey, Dora, Jeremy - was lovely and my time there (about six hours) was relaxed and warm. The place is immaculate but somehow you still feel as if you're being tattooed in a friend's living room complete with comfy leather couch and awesome soundtrack. It might sound way corny, but as a tattoo newbie I really do feel like I "got lucky" having my first piece done at Lucky Soul and won't be going anywhere else to have work done in the future.

This place is spotless! When you first enter the shop, it looks like a very well kept living room with some books on the coffee table. The walls are not covered with flash art, instead you can find sculptures and framed artwork. The artists all have different styles so the chances of getting exactly what you want are much higher. The design I had was an original design which Jeremy adapted freehand on my arm/shoulder.  He spent a considerable amount of time getting the design just right for me and was very patient. I will be back again. More...

Let me first start this review off with a disclaimer.  I am not tatted up from head to toe.  I have 1 tattoo.  Let me rephrase that; I have one bad-ass tattoo.  I do however see a lot of work that comes out of this place and I am never anything less than amazed.  Tracey and Jim rock!In 2002 I went out an got a tattoo (not by Lucky Soul) which at the time had oodles of meaning to me.  Life goes on and over the years I wanted that thing off me, so after about 2 years of figuring out what I wanted, I took the advice of my brother and decided to make an appointment at Lucky Soul with the talented Tracey.  My appointment was scheduled three months out, due to her awesomeness and thus gave me time to confirm my design.  A week before my appointment I went into the shop and showed her some ideas.  She called me back a day later, saying that she was literally losing sleep because my current tattoo was not symmetrical and it would be hard to cover....she had ideas and at the day of my appointment, we could decide what to do and tweak some ideas.  The day of my appointment had arrived.  I walked into Lucky Soul and was Tracey's first appointment of the day.  We looked at all of her various ideas and she explained why the one that I had picked out would not work.  It didn't matter because once I had seen what she had drawn up, my idea looked so boring.  I was never so excited to know I'd be sitting there for 3 hours getting poked by little needles.  Yay!Three hours later, no pain no gain, right?.... I couldn't have been happier.  The most beautiful, "no -one- will- ever- know- it's- a- cover-up"- cover-up was done. It's loaded with color, it's the perfect size, it's top quality stuff and after tanning all summer long (covering it with tons of SPF of course) it still looks gorgeous!The shop is spotless.  I've never walked into a tattoo place and was amazed at the sanitary precautions this place takes.  Very impressive.  The waiting area is set up nice, with cool art displayed all around.  The artists are very friendly and funny. I brought my iPod thinking I'd be bored and didn't need it once.  Everyone is talkative, and very laid back.  Jim is the owner/artist and very funny as well........points for being a dog lover.  He and Tracey had great taste in music, they played a really funky mix of disco/indie/rock.  From what I understand, they win "Best In Connecticut" the past few years in a row.  I completely understand why.  They're awesome.  If you're interested in getting inked... this is definitely the place to go.  Word to the wise, you need to go to the shop to make an appointment with a deposit.  TIME IS MONEY for them.  I don't blame them.  A friend of mine just made an appointment and as of last week they're booked through the December.
