Lucky Soul started out as a dream, and with a lot of hard work it became a reality. Jim LoPresti first opened the doors of Lucky Soul Tattoo in December of 2001, with an original location in Ansonia, Connecticut. Believing that a tattoo shop didn't have to be a place where people felt uncomfortable or unwelcome, Jim started out LST on a good foot - providing clean, custom tattoos with a friendly smile. Great tattoos with that kind of customer service really caught on, and Lucky Soul became one of the top-rated tattoo shops in Connecticut.
Lucky Soul moved to its current location in Woodbridge, CT in March of 2011 to provide an even more client-based custom atmosphere. It was then that Jim paired up with Tracey, who had been with the shop since the beginning and had helped Jim create the great reputation that LST has today. Jim and Tracey are a great duo, at times hilarious, and quite a lot like Oscar and Felix.
Staying in the same building, in May of 2018, Lucky Soul moved to the first floor and expanded in size to bring on more artists and allow for more available tattoo time. Moving downstairs also allowed us to bring in another service for our clientele - an old tyme barber! Our good friend Mark Fernicola is now on site providing great cuts and shaves, bringing the historical combination of barbering and tattooing back together again. We now take both walk-ins and appointments, for both tattoos and haircuts, and still provide the amazing quality of work and shop experience you've come to expect from LST.
Lucky Soul Tattoo is not just a place to come and get a great tattoo, its a place to become part of the family.
In the wise old words of Andy LoPresti, the inspiration behind the name of the shop, and the man who made Jim what he is today - "You Lucky Soul!"
