Best Artists in the Business 12/6/2009

I've had a couple of pieces done by the owner Billy, who is hands down the best black/grey and bio-mech artist I have ever seen. Each time I've been in, the staff is pleasant and helpful, it's easy to get an appointment, and I leave with flawless tattoos. In addition, my expectations were met above and beyond, and the prices for my tats were super reasonable. I have definitely found my tatttoo artist for life! Pros: Great location, clean shop, friendly, talented Cons: I'll get back to you if I find one more

Be VERY careful. 1/28/2009

My boyfriend got his tattoo here and had a good experience. I went a few days later and got a tattoo from the same artist and I left crying because it was so bad. The lines were not straight and it was completely unsymmetrical. A few months later I ran into a friend that knew the tattoo artist and she said ""he's great ONLY if he is into your tattoo."" Gosh... I wish I had known that before I got mine done. Pros: cheap Cons: poor work more

Amazing Tattoo Artists 1/14/2009

I went to Scarred For Life Tattoo for the first time yesterday. It was a great experience. My tattoo artist, Raoul did a pretty detailed tattoo for me in about 2 hours. It didn't even feel like i was in the chair for 2 hours. This wasn't my first tattoo, and Raoul had very light hands and the piece on my upper arm didn't even really hurt. I went on a Tuesday, so the shop was pretty empty, which was awesome because I got to chat with all the other tattoo artist as well. Everyone was super nice, the place was very clean and professional. I will definitely be going back there for the rest of my tattoos as long as I live in Colorado. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Pros: Worked with my budget more

A wonderful tattoo experience 6/14/2007

Kris at Scarred for Life was fantastic! This was my fourth tattoo and by far the most pleasant experience. He made it work for my budget and was extremely professional and pleasant. I've had experiences in the past where guys take advantange of having a girl topless or something, but Kris was not like that at all. I've also had experiences where I barely speak two words to the person giving the tattoo, but Kris was very personable and was always asking me how I felt and explaining to me what was going on. He was willing to stay late and finish me up and was not like other egotistical tattoo artists who act like they walk on water! I was anxious and eager to get my work done as I had spent weeks messing with some other awful place in Boulder (which I will refrain from mentioning by name). Kris made it happen and I was grateful that my awful experience elsewhere led me to this wonderful business! Pros: reasonably priced, efficient, PROFESSIONAL Cons: NONE! more

For the First Time Tattoo Experience ..... 2/13/2007

Somebody asked me before I went in, ""how long have you been thinking about getting a tattoo?"". I thought a moment ..... 46 years. Since my Navy days, I couldnt find a good reason to get an ""out of the book"" tattoo. Pros: Clean, comfortable and Friendly Cons: No dancing girls. more

reclaiming the losses... 1/24/2007

I called Scarred for life Tattoo, I think the guy that answered the phone was named Brian. Anyhow, the first impression he left me with was comforting. Ive been interested in another tattoo for a couple of years now, but each time I go into a place, with a pocket full of cash money, I am turned away by condesending attitudes. NO, YOU ARE NOT GOD! Pros: Clean, friendly, comfortable setting, full of talent. Definently pros. Cons: No, I don't think they were convicts more

My second two tattoos are my favorites!!! 12/10/2006

Kris did such an amazing job on my tattoos on my shoulders and was really nice about everything the whole time, trying to make the experience as pleasant and pain-free as possible. He was so cool and gave me such a great price on my ink that I gave him a huge tip and felt guilty for not being able to give more!! Definitely go here for all tattoos if you live in Boulder, Denver, Greeley, wherever in Colorado! A+++++++ more

Best Tattoo Ever 8/24/2006

Kris did the most excellent job on my tat. Just letters and numbers but every line and corner is perfect. Everyone that has seen my tat here in Nebraska has said that it is the best they have ever seen. Thanks Kris!!! Pros: Absolute wonderful and helpful customer service all they way around more

My first tattoo 8/15/2005

I went to Kris at Scarred for Life and although I was very nervous at the thought of getting my first tat, Kris was so very pleasant and made the whole experience wonderful. My tat is very details and required 2 sittings, I go back for color this weekend. Kris did such a great job from the pictures I gave him, it looks better than I could have ever imagined and I can't wait for the color! Pros: Great Prices, very friendly more

Great Tattoos and Inexpensive Too 7/27/2005

I got all of my tattoos at Scarred For Life, two Chinese symbols and one very large Tribal tattoo. They are all great. The prices were very fair and the staff is very patient and very talented. When I selected my first two tattoos Chris was very helpful. He made sure I was happy with my selections and gave me advice on what would look good in the places I wanted them. I'm very happy with the work. When I got my tribal tattoo, Billy, the owner, was very good at visualizing what I was saying. He was very patient. The tribal tattoo was custom and Billy went above and beyond the call of duty. He was happy to redraw my ideas and point me in the right direction without being pushy. I couldn't be more happy with my my tattoos. I can't give them a high enough ratting. Pros: Talented Staff, Great Prices, Great Atmosphere Cons: Limited Parking more
