Fortune Cookie Tattoo is located in the heart of downtown Denver. The owner, Jon, is a true genius behind the gun. He is known to be quick, precise and passionate, what serious customers look for in a tattoo artist. The shop itself definitely holds a professional standard for its cleanliness and by the book sanitary precautions that are obvious when you're inside the place. Considering how clean and sanitary a parlor is before you choose to get a tattoo done there is very important. A tattoo gun punctures the skin and injects a drop of ink into the skin. A puncture wound has a great chance of becoming infected and has the potential for disease transmission. Most materials used in the application process should be disposable. Things like the ink cartridges, ink cups, needles, and gloves. Fortune Cookie Tattoo follows these guidelines as they only use single-use materials that arrive in sterile packaging. Time and money should definitely be a factor when deciding where you want to get tattooed. You’re paying for something that’s going to be on your body for the rest of your life, so you don’t want to go searching for bargains. You also don’t want to overpay for a tattoo. Smaller tattoos done in professional shops typically won’t be more than $100. Larger pieces vary depending on detail. You want an artist that can work efficiently, meaning they go at a steady pace but not quick enough to affect the quality of the tattoo. Some pieces do require multiple sessions. Jon is the head artist at Fortune Cookie and is very accommodating to his customers wallets, but does set a higher price for higher detailed pieces. He gives an estimate on price and time once the sketches are drawn, which is helpful to customers who want to have a complete idea of what’s to come with their tattoo. Tattoo artists have specific styles that they excel in and other styles that they may not be as skilled at. Its important to pick an artist that specializes in the style you’re looking for. Fortune Cookie houses four talented artists. Jon Lew, Dan Archer, Jay Stein, and Bonnie. Jon focuses on custom neo-traditional pieces with a lot of color. Dan specializes in illustrative styles such as American & Japanese Traditional, Newschool, and New-Traditional. Jay and Bonnie are skilled in all genres and are willing to work with the artist’s imagination. Professional tattoo parlors like Fortune Cookie are hard to come by. The strict sanitary precautions, affordability, and widespread artistic skill in different genres makes it one of the top 3 shops in Denver. This shop will really make you feel at home as it’s easy to connect with your artist and express your wants. Customers are sure to feel comfortable with the tattoo process and the outcome.
I went to Endless Ink when I first moved to Denver. I had gotten a tattoo of an angel holding on to a cross done about 3 years ago (not at Endless Ink). after taking months to igure out what flowers I wanted to cover it up with I sent the pictures to JJ (the artest that did my cover up) and a week later I went in and got the cover up done. He did an amazing job. He was very nice and so was everyone else that worked there. I was very comfortable and I did not take him super long to finish the tattoo. I will be going there for any tattoos I get later in life. I loved my experience there.
Did my first walk-in for a tat, normally do a lot of research looking at profiles. I am very happy with a piece and time I got from Billy. Very educated artist, clean, and awesome experience.. Will be going back in 4 months for a four hour set down on a large 1/2 done piece. Looking forward. I am very picky about whom inks me and skill. For a wim out of the blue walk in, I was very pleased and glade I did, found a new awesome place for a finishing of my sleeve and more down the road. out of town visitor-- from Colby, Ks/BFE
