Terrarium Tattoo is a truly custom Tattoo Studio focused on creating bold tattoos that will stand the test of time. "Art First" is our motto. Meredith and H.H. Little Sky opened Terrarium Tattoo in the Spring of 2015. Meredith and H.H. consider the art of tattooing a sacred act and want to honor the craft with great artwork and tattoos, while offering our clients a more private atmosphere. Their intention when opening the shop was to create an environment where people could feel comfortable while being put in uncomfortable positions (tattoos hurt). Terrarium Tattoo offers a range of styles and hourly rates. Please review our Artists' portfolios to get a sense of what types of tattoos they like to do and who would be best suited for your tattoo project.
We would also like to Thank all of our loyal clients over the years who have followed us along our journey. From Boulder to the art shed/apartment in Loveland and now to our amazing location across the street from the CSU campus. Thank you!

H.H. has been tattooing for 22 years having entered an apprenticeship under the tutelage of Paul Martinez at Metamorphosis Tattoo in Kingston, New York.

Meredith (his wife) and H.H. landed in Colorado in 2009 and H.H. began tattooing at Electric Quill in Boulder, Colorado in 2010.
