In Denver, tattoo shops are a pretty common sight. It’s hardly a surprise, though, considering these days one in five Americans sports a tattoo somewhere, and even Fox News admits they're not just for rebels anymore. The best tattoo shops in Denver vary according to the reporter, but sources agree on a few fine locations. Denver Westword, for instance, recommends Bound by Design, a parlor that also specializes in piercings. The Fallen Owl boasts artists both talented and charitable, who spend a lot of time investing in the community through volunteer work. Kitchens’ Ink, on the other hand, draws devotees thanks to artist Joe Manly’s talent for infusing tattoos with vibrant colors.
