My client came to me with a design she wanted to represent where she grew up. Here in Gran Junction, Co.  If you are from Grand Junction, you know about the infamous Independence Rock and all the sage that grows around the valley.  

Ive also grew up here in the valley. Born and raised. Left for about 5 years and lived in the Denver area. Moved back and opened up the tattoo studio. The great thing about this town is how beautiful it is, mountains surrounding you, hiking trails, biking, camping, skiing within less then an hour away. It really is a beautiful place to live. The downside...everyone knows you.  

Not that I don’t mind connecting with old classmates and friends, but you run into just about everyone, everyone seems to “know” you or at least thinks they do.  

So at times I’ve found myself hibernating in my house rather then being Mr. Social that I use to be in college and early on in my tattooing profession.  

I cant imagine not living in Colorado but I do have a huge desire to see more of the world. So I’m not sure Grand Junction will be my forever home, but for now, I’ll take it!

If you could pick anywhere in the world to call home, where would that be? 


Much Love
