Located in the heart of the Old North End, Jade Lotus offers custom tattoos and quality piercings.

On staff are 6 tattooists to choose from of varying artistic styles. Custom designs are drawn for the client alone, and will never be reused. Each artist takes great pride in their craft and possesses sound technique. All inks used at Jade Lotus are of high quality and are vegan friendly.

Also on staff are piercers Derek Mastriopetro and Jesse Fraser. With over 17 years of experience between the two of them, you are in good steady hands! Piercing are done with internally threaded, implant grade stainless steel or titanium jewelry, carefully selected to be the appropriate size and style for your piercing. We also have a large and ever changing selection of glass, and organic body jewelry of varying sizes.

As always, the safety of our piercing and tattoo clients is held of utmost importance. Jade Lotus follows, and in many cases, exceeds Vermont State regulation in the fields of cross-contamination and sterility. For example we test our autoclave weekly as opposed to the state minimum of monthly. If you have any questions about our procedures, please never hesitate to ask
