Tattoo 719 – We Tattoo Colorado Springs!
If you’re thinking about getting your first…or when you’re ready to add another design, stop looking around because, here at Tattoo 719, we’ve got you covered…in living color. Our tattoo artists are certified pros and creative masters with needles and ink. Our house is cool, comfortable, and clean, and we’ll be glad to show you our huge variety of designs from happy clients. Come by and see how we tattoo Colorado Springs.
We do everything we can to make sure you feel safe and comfortable. We want to be your first choice and favorite Colorado Springs tattoo shop. That’s why your tattoo session will be in a private room…sterilized and clean above and beyond government requirements.
You probably have questions like:
• What kind of artists work here? – Like we said…certified pros and creative masters
• Are we insured? – Yes. Each of our artist carries their own, and our shop is insured.
• Are we licensed? – Yes. We’re licensed following all the guidelines of Colorado state laws.
• Do we use autoclaves? – Yes. Autoclaves provide more sterilization pressure than other methods.
• How long have we been open? – We’ve been in business since 2013.
We invite you to check us out on our social media channels, review sites, and other places around the internet. And even more than that, we invite you to come by and look us over. We’re proud of our shop, and we’d love to show you around and introduce you to the artists. Everybody’s friendly and willing to help. And you should never book a tattoo session with any shop until you’ve checked ’em out in person anyway. Remember, a crappy tattoo job can be a serious health risk…not to mention how bad a crappy design can make you feel.
Here are some real important things to remember when you’re ready to make an appointment with Tattoo 719…
• Tell us if you have any disease or illness that might cause a problem (hepatitis, diabetes, HIV, anemia, etc.) We need to know how to help in case your illness could cause you to faint or something like that.
• If you take aspirin or other blood-thinning medications, you need to hold off for 24 hours before coming in. If your blood is too thin, you could bleed a lot more, and you don’t wanna make things so hard on the artist…do you? Besides, it could interfere with the quality of your design/art.
• Don’t come for your tattoo session on an empty stomach. We have to let you know, because we’re dealing with needles and skin, that there’s always the chance of passing out. That’s especially true if you don’t eat before your session. No need to fill up on wings and beer…but have at least a sandwich or something. You could bring some candy, too. And you can offer us a piece if you like. We don’t refuse very often.
• Since you’re gonna be lying down or sitting still for quite a while, don’t forget to wear comfortable clothes. It’s not that we get many suits in here, but even the wrong pair of jeans can get uncomfortable after sitting too long. And you might have to be in a weird position to make it easier for the tattoo artist to create your masterpiece.
You might not hear a lot of tattoo shops in Colorado (or any other place for that matter) tell you to really think it over. And even though we like to say we tattoo Colorado Springs, we don’t wanna tattoo anyone who might regret it later. We’re not here for that. So, maybe you’re in the mood right now. Maybe you’ve been looking at your friends’ tattoos. Or maybe you’ve been all over the internet looking at all the amazing designs and colors. And now you’re all revved up to get inked. But we still want you to think about it.
You might have heard somebody say, “You’re gonna have to live with it for the rest of your life.” Well, that’s true. So, make sure you’re not just getting a tattoo to “look cool” or “be cool”. A tattoo needs to connect with you. It needs to show the you that you want the world to see. And you need to be at least pretty sure you’ll wanna show that the rest of your life. Have you ever seen one of those cartoons or movies where some guy had a tattoo of his girlfriend’s name on his arm…then, he had to get that one crossed out and get the next girlfriend’s name. Then he did it a third and fourth time. Don’t be that guy.
And just as important as the design is where you place the tattoo. You gotta know if you put a tattoo of a zombie on your forehead, that’s probably gonna limit you on some jobs. Yeah, there are still companies who frown on tattoos in the workplace. So you might need to get yours in a strategic place. Even though it might not be an issue right now. Remember, things change. You might not always be working where you do now.
Wanna know how to get the tattoo artist buzzed to do your session? Come up with something completely original. Our artists love a challenge like that. Let’s say you’re a big fan of Colorado Springs and Pike’s Peak and all the cool stuff to do around here. And let’s say you’d like a tattoo that shows how much you love living here. Well, don’t just come in and ask us to tattoo Colorado Springs on your arm. Bo-ring. But, what if you came in with an idea for a Pike’s Peak silhouette covered by a horse with fire flaring from its nostrils? Well…now, we’re on to something. That gives an artist a chance to do something that hasn’t been done before. And what artist wouldn’t love that? Ours do. Look around the internet for design ideas. Ask any of your friends who can draw to come up with something. The main thing is…be original. Let your personality shine through. Then bring it in, and we’ll do our best to give you the needlework you’re looking for.
Many people, who’ve never gotten a tattoo before, ask if it’s gonna hurt. Well, yes. After all, we’re talking about needles poking your skin. But’s it’s not some unbearable torture chamber. We promise. It’s mostly like quick, little pinches or sunburn. Different people describe it in different ways. But keep in mind…if that little woman who’s five feet tall, with the tulip tattoo, can take it, you can too. Here’s how it works…
First your tattoo artist will put on gloves. (Our artists use powder free black nitrile gloves) Then the artist opens the needles and inks right in front of you. That way you can see how sterile everything is. Next, we clean your skin thoroughly so no external germs get under the skin. Then, we put your stencil in place, apply some Vaseline on your skin, and get started with the tattoo.
Now, don’t get nervous. If you start to feel a little uneasy, just talk to the tattoo artist. Let ’em know what’s bothering you. Our artists are happy to explain each step and walk you through it slowly enough to reassure you it’s gonna be fine. They’ll help you focus on something to get your mind off the needles and process. In fact, our artists are great talkers. You’re bound to hear more than one colorful and interesting story during your tattoo session.
When you get a tattoo in a visible area on your body, don’t be surprised if people ask you about it. People you might not ever talk to, otherwise, will sometimes walk up to you and ask what it is. Or why you got a tattoo. Some people will love it. Some will hate it. But that’s not why you’re getting one…right? You’re getting a tattoo to express some creative, inner part of you in an creative outer way. Right? So, when someone asks, tell ’em.
Hopefully we’ve given you enough information to make a better choice about a tattoo. Be sure and check our other pages for more about who we are and how we got started. You’ll also see our open hours, and you can even book a tattoo session online. We welcome small tattoo walk-in’s. But if you’re looking at a full sleeve or something else more complex, you’ll need to book an appointment. After all…you don’t wanna rush the artist, do you?
One final note about our tattoo artists…you’ll never hear them complain if you’d like to tip. It’s funny, but they just don’t seem to mind the extra money. Tips are not required, but think about it this way…if you think you might come back for another tattoo, a tip would certainly inspire your tattoo artist to remember and maybe do something just for you.
Be sure and use our contact form to send us your questions, comments, and other feedback. We love hearing from you. And we’re always looking for ways to improve our services. That’s just another reason why more and more people say…
