After searching for the "right place with the right vibe" for quite a lengthy time and coming up blank, I started looking online for reviews on tattoo shops.
Obviously I looked for the highest rated and had my search narrowed down to 2. The first one (only first due to closer location) met me with an elitist attitude and what seemed to be a complete ignorance of what I was asking for (references all in hand).
The second was Mile High Tattoo... what a difference. My husband, son and I were met by the very friendly Van and spoke with Matt Garner who actually took the time to listen, offer suggestions, and seem excited to do the work. The shop was clean and professional with the vibe I was seeking... not a club, not a morgue! The price was exactly what I had expected and budgeted and the portfolios were excellent. Obviously, I booked an appointment.
I couldn't be happier with the work that was done. I was looking for a cover up of a 24 year old "steaming kidney" on my arm (not really a kidney, but 24 years ago it was a flaming heart) and Matt did such an amazing job in a 3 hour sitting (oh, I was remiss in stating that shop 1 vaguely told me this "could take up to two 4 hour sittings due to blah blah and blah....").
I left with a turtle that was intricate and beautiful. He was not only thorough in the artwork, but likewise in the after care steps. I left with no questions and no concerns and a tattoo that I CAN live with and love forever :-)
I will never go anywhere else but here, neither should you!
The place you should go! For sure! – Great friendly staff, very welcoming! Professional as well. I would highly recommend this place!
Best tattoo shop in Colorado – I am constantly impressed with the work of one tattoo artist in particular, Lonnie Lindberg. Whenever I view his work I see more and more detail to appreciate and the story unfolds with a variety of subplots whereas upon first viewing I mistakenly think it is but a single image. I also like they way he interviews clients. After hearing what they want tattooed he then asks why they want a tattoo which enables the story to have greater depth and personal meaning.
p.s. I stopped in there today to have a look around and noticed some great pin-up art on the walls shot by a local photographer. It was nice to see a new twist on an old style of artwork.
