Sacred Vessel Tattoo

intersectional feminism at its finest


Sacred Vessel Tattoo is an oasis in which to honor and adorn your body.  We provide sanctuary space for the ancient ritual of tattoo, connecting to life's deeper meaning or intention.

Sacred Vessel Tattoo aims to preserve memories, commemorate the passing of time, and adorn our bodies with personalized fine art.  We are here to help you to embody yourself in a positive light. 

We believe in the transformative and healing power found through the process of designing and decorating one’s body with one’s own unique vision.  

We believe that each person is a unique work of art in our own right, and that a tattoo can represent a way to enhance and strengthen one’s self-esteem and ability to conduct our lives with confidence.  

Tattoos are talismans, shields and symbols of protection or guidance, memorials to deceased loved ones. They are the stories of our journeys through lifetimes. They are dreams. They are rites of passage.  They are a personal declaration of who an individual is on a soul level, made manifest in visible form. Tattoos are universal and translate across all spoken language barriers. 

From the whimsical to the mystical, we are here to help you manifest your vision and transformation. Each of our clients is as unique as the tattoos we create for them, each tattoo a journey into new territory and new awareness. We respect our clients need for safety, both physical and emotional. Where will your journey lead you and how can we help?

Summer Special Offering

We are so super excited to announce our first guest artist, coming this summer!! Malia Luna will be joining Esmé on July 7th and 8th for 2 days of intuitive healing tattoo sessions. They will each offer 4 sessions per day, so sign up soon, as we know these spots will fill quickly. This is Malia’s first visit to Vermont.

::A little more about Malia in her own words::
“I offer tattoos as activating and transformative medicine, created in ritual space. 
In my practice, I utilize the power of prayer and intention to facilitate deep and transformative energy work.  
I work with tattoos as prayers woven into the skin and the experience of a person. In session, I hold space for a design to emerge that carries the prayer deep into a person's being. 

The tattoo process begins with a small, hands-on energy/body work session, in which sound and light language is used. 
All tattoos will be hand-poked.”
