At its locations in Loveland and Denver, Tattoo Must Go's expert technicians erase unwelcome ink with a Q-switched laser, which sends nanosecond pulses of intense light to the treatment area. Patients go through a complimentary consultation before treatment begins, determining the number of sessions necessary depending on ink colors, skin tones, and how many Alfs are in the tattoo. During half-hour treatments, the laser breaks down particles of any color while minimally affecting the skin. A Zimmer Cryo 6 Chiller provides additional comfort during the process, keeping the treated area cool. Patients can return for their next treatment in as few as three weeks.
Michael spent his childhood scribbling drawings over every available surface of his mother's house. Sammy designed tattoos for his fellow Marines during the four years he was stationed in Hawaii and Japan. James listened transfixed as his grandfather, 90% covered in tattoos, regaled him with stories about each one.
These divergent paths led all three men to Living Art Tattoo, where they and their fellow artists ink clients with custom designs. In a nod to the military backgrounds of some of the staff, the Living Art team grants discounts to veterans and current military personnel. Along with tattoos, the studio specializes in piercings for various body parts, including earlobes, eyebrows, and tongues.
"I have always been an artist," says Heebee Jeebees' owner, Karen Knight. A native of Liverpool, England, her artistic travels have led her through careers in portrait painting, clothing design, makeup artistry, and other creative endeavors, before she thoroughly immersed herself in her love for body art. Alongside two other skilled tattoo artists, Knight creates custom artwork based on client specifications, and promises a lifetime of touch-ups to ensure the colors stay rich and the invisible ink stays invisible. Brightly hued walls lined with original artwork and photographs provide visual inspiration for patrons and passersby.
