Born from a passing conversation, Tom and Erik decided that they wanted to find a new way to make tattooing an overall better experience for the owner, the artists, and the clients... thus Vital Ink was created.

Vital Ink is a tattoo studio in Barrington, NH strictly designed with the clients comfort and satisfaction at the forefront. The team works hard to ensure that the client's vision is met with the professional help and design strategy our artists provide. We want to make sure that every client that leaves Vital Ink does so with a tattoo that they will love and enjoy for the rest of their lives.

So if you enjoy having a good time, witty banter, and an overall light and fun feel, stop by the shop! We would love to help you start working on your next project.

Tom "Bonehead" McNeil



I'm Tom.  I like long walks on the beach, coffee by the gallon, and doing tattoos. 

I started off as an airbrush artist and pinstriper and specialized in painting custom motorcycles. I took the leap and transitioned into tattooing in 2016.

I enjoy doing most styles, including black and grey, new school, and custom script tattoos.


I work hard to keep my clients vision in mind while working on their design.  I like to keep my appointments light, fun and comfortable.  Thank you for reading this mumbo jumbo.  

Please check out my portfolio... let's get something started!

Erik Hilliker


Erik has been drawing since he was 5 years old and has been an artist and avid reader most of his life.  In 1990 Erik started drawing tattoo flash for local shops and delivered the designs himself.  Soon his best friend encouraged him to learn the art and offered his own skin for practice... the rest is history.


Erik has a fondness for tattooing skulls, monsters, birds, flowers, sci-fi and video game characters. 

 Come in and see Erik, he would love working with you to create an amazing custom tattoo.


Lyndsey McElreath

Hi! My name is Lyndsey!! I love tattooing in a black and grey illustrative style. I'm an art school grad (with a job!!) with a Bachelors of fine art in illustration from Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge, MA. 

Art and tattooing is my passion but I also really love music, anime, and video games! Let's start something! :)

Candice Cosco

Hey there, I'm Candice! I'm currently a tattoo artist at Vital Ink. Drawing and painting has been a passion for mine for as long as I can remember. Some topics I'm super passionate about drawing/tattooing would be botanicals, skulls, insects, and wild life.

I'm always open to trying new styles so if you'd like to start a new project, I'd love to hear from you!

Katie Yonts

Hello! My name is Katie. I have been drawing and creating art since I could hold a pen in my hand. 

I started my tattoo journey in South Carolina after college(BA), where I found I have a love for neo traditional and custom anime tattoos. 

3 years later I found myself living and tattooing in New Hampshire here. 

I love being able to provide unique and fun art for people to enjoy for life.

Hi, I’m Danny. I’ve been an artist since I could hold a pencil. I started tattooing in New Orleans in 2000. Back in on NH since 2013. I’ve had the opportunity to tattoo with and learn from some great artists over the years and develop my tattoo skills and style. I enjoy tattooing  black and grey, illustrative and neo traditional styles. 

I enjoy tattooing and I strive  to bring my clients vision to life on their skin.

Hi! I’m Chris, your friendly neighborhood professional body piercer... I’ve been very passionate about customer service and body piercing for over 20 years. My goal is for you to have a happy and healthy piercing experience. Aftercare for me means I care as much  after you see me as you do for your piercing. The hat I’m wearing is how I keep from getting sunburnt when I fly my RC planes, or race my RC cars on my day off :)
Peace to you my peeps !!  

Chris does walk-ins only.
