We specialize in custom tattoos at Terrarium Tattoo... not only because we love getting creative, but because we feel that the best art is often times, a collaboration! Our Freehand Fridays Special with resident artist, H.H. Little Sky, takes this custom approach to the next level—
Book a Freehand Friday appointment and you'll sit down with H.H. to talk through possible ideas and placement. To help narrow the scope, we limit the subject matter to occult imagery, nature elements, tools and artifacts. After discussing some options, together you'll land on a concept for your tattoo. H.H. will then freehand draw a design, based on your concept, directly on your skin and get to work tattooing! In a couple of hours, you'll have an completely unique black & grey tattoo for only $200 — That's right, $200!

The Tomahawk was the Native American emblem of warfare - symbolized two sides of a coin: war and peace. A council ritual was associated with the tomahawk. When a war council started a tomahawk, painted red, was placed on the ground in front of the chief. If, after deliberation, it was decided to raise a war party the war chief would raise the red tomahawk and rouse the warriors with war songs and dances. To bury a tomahawk meant peace - to dig it up, meant to declare the most deadly warfare. Hence the phrase "to bury the hatchet" in reference to the settlement of disputes. Tomahawks were used in important ceremonies, such as signing a peace treaty. Ceremonial tomahawks were elaborately decorated with paint and feathers, and often had a hollow stem fixed at the end with a pipe bowl for smoking. — H.H.
This Tattoo was specific to the Client's Astrological Chart... Aquarius: The symbol for Aquarius is the Water Bearer, symbolically and eternally giving life and spiritual food to the world. The water from the vessel washes away the past, leaving room for a fresh, new start. The sign of Aquarius is forward-looking and growth-oriented. Concerned with equality and individual freedom, Aquarius seeks to dispense its knowledge, and its vision of equality and individuality, to all. The symbol on the vessel is Uranus: In Astrology, the energies of Uranus are electric and crammed with change. Uranus is forward-looking. It balks at tradition, and celebrates originality and individuality. Uranus is associated with technology, innovation, discovery, and all that is progressive. — H.H.
This freehand tattoo is all about the ritual... we wanted to combine Occult imagery, specific to client's request, arranged in a Tarot card style format. Each element on it's own has it's own symbolism and significance, and when combined, we make Magick... happen! —H.H.
