Sean Ambrose Custom Tattoo Artist Arrows and Embers Tattoo New Hampshire

Creativity and focusing on the emotion of each piece has always come pretty naturally to Sean. While he loves tattoos of all kinds, his favorite pieces always tell a story. Although his clients give him artistic liberty due to his experience and expansive portfolio, he’s helping them tell their stories. No matter how big or small, detailed or simple, he’s in a service industry and finds it extremely fulfilling to be a tattoo artist. Plus, from researching art to the mechanical components of the tattoo machines themselves, to the science and psychology behind good design, every aspect of tattooing truly satisfies his self-proclaimed ‘geekiness.’

“Tattooing is a very comfortable way for me to connect with people. When I’m tattooing, I feel at home. And it never gets mundane; challenges are always present and growing and changing, and that helps to keep things interesting, too. I especially enjoy the challenges-when I get someone in the shop who isn’t necessarily artistically inclined or someone who says they want a skeleton riding a dishwasher… To anyone else, it sounds crazy. But when I put it through the filters of complementary color schemes, complementary textures, and good composition, all those artsy-fartsy words mean something and it’s about the science of pleasing the human subconscious. When I’m finished they have a piece of art that they’re proud of, that I’m often told looks better than they had imagined, and that’s awesome-there’s nothing more rewarding for me than seeing how happy someone is with their tattoo that we’ve literally created together with our imaginations. I feel honored to do what I do, and I love it. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
