Dont go to this place! The owner is a scumbag who exploits artists and even outright steals from them . He is greedy and shamelessly hits on his female clientel no matter their age. The artist barely get paid...most only get 30-40% per tattoo...and are expexcted to rush through tattoos as fast as they can to get more people in the door...at the expense of any creativity or real art. Dont give your money to this evil empire...its as bad as walmart. Go to an artist run shop...support your local artist! NOT THE PEOPLE EXPLOITING THEM!
Ok so my lady and I go in to get a price on a cover up and to get some ideas the artist there says he can't do anything for us because his back hurts. Ok we didn't want work done we were looking for a price and ideas he looked at the tattoo and says he surprized she ant sick. His cow coworker working with him was actually laughing about that. Worst experaince in a tattoo shop. It will be awhile before I can find an artist to trust.

My wife and I stopped in for some new ink today (I already had two pieces done at this Celebrity location in the past). Their posted operating hours were 12pm -10pm today, but by 12:45pm they still weren't open. (Parking was $15.00, so that was a bit frustrating.) Still, wanted to use Celebrity so we went to their Golden location, which had posted hours opening at 10:30am. Also closed, with a sign on the door indicating they'd be back at 2:40pm. So, quick Google and we went to Faith Tattoo in old town Golden...which turned out to be an awesome place, with fantastic customer service, extremely talented artists...and Faith became our new regular tattoo joint...

I've had 5 tattoos done at Celebrity over the last 3 years & would not go ANYWHERE else! Thor & Felix are both incredible artists & all-around cool guys. They take the time to listen to my ideas, talk about what I want & give great suggestions. There's no pressure to do things ""their way"" (as I've had at other shops) and they are honest about the realities of tattooing (for example, telling a customer that a tattoo on the toe will need a lot of touch ups). I'm always impressed with the work I see when I go into the shop. The professionalism at the Lodo shop is second to none. The shop is super clean. I would (and have!) recommend this shop to anyone. I have a total of 11 tattoos done at 6 different shops so I have a little experience in this area ;) I cannot say enough how awesome these guys (and their work) are. Celebrity Lodo is the only shop to get your tattoo!

I have been going to Celebrity Tattoo since June 2000, I stayed at the Lakewood store up until January 2011 because I had finally had enough! (almost 11 years!!!!)
Before I write anything I do want to say that the review titled ""Dirty Drunks"" is not even close to accurate though! Celebrity Tattoo is one of the cleanest tattoo shops in the Denver Metro area, and I can say that about all of their locations. I think that Zeke has done a good job at setting high standards of making sure that his shops are clean. So when it comes to any worry about that, I have NEVER felt that I needed to be concerned about safety or cleanliness when I go there and I have a very low tolerance for anthying that even looks like it might be unsanitary..So I think that review is BS, and probably was written by another shop or someone with a 7th grade education (at best)
BUT having said that, I did quit going to the Lakewood location because the bullsh*t there is just too much...They have had a few really good artists leave over the last few years and I still stuck it out going there (and I average 2-3 tattoos a year) its not Zeke that is the problem....Its the manager Natalie, that is the issue...IF you are a female and you walk into that shop, she is the most rude disrespectful human being I have ever had to deal with. She might be that way with the males that walk in there, but i've never seen her try it.. She will make your entire stay there so uncomfortable with her nasty looks and ""sh*t talking"" that is within earshot, that it is misreable being there. And unfortunatly it has created a severe ""high school"" feel in there and sadly isnt just limited to her but other artists as well.
Your tattoo will look fine, if you feel like fighting about it with the artist untill they ""give in"" to doing it the way YOU want...
There is a new level of arrogance in that place that just sucks....I made the decision to stay with Celebrity though, because like I said, I do appreciate the ""clean"" feel in a Celebrity shop.
I went downtown to the location on Market and had a GREAT experience, there were only 2 artists in there when I walked in, and I ended up having Thor do my tattoo touch-up that day and he did an amazing job! Since then I have been back twice and everyone that has been in there while I was there had great work done, but more importantly the atmosphere DIDNT suck!!! I think the Market St location is the better location to get your work done...I hate drama and BS when im getting tattooed and I dont see that happening there. There is no ""manager"" on duty there, but with how worthless the one at Lakewood is, i'm not sure there would be a difference (except for caddy garbage being added) Thor is awesome (he will actually take the time to sit down with you and come up with something you like, and give an OPINION on something that WILL work if he feels what you wanted wont work) and he never came close to ""talking down"" to anyone that I saw him interact with. I am married with kids and really appreciate that he was professional and I could enjoy my time that I get to myself without drama, I am moving out of state but you can bet when I come back Market St is where I will go

I needed an ugly jail-house tat covered up (in-my-youth), I told the artist Thor to do whatever he thought was kewl.... He did a very good job of covering-up what could be covered and enhanced what was way to obvious. >4 hibiscus connecting a tribal around my ankle (2 pt tat). The next 1 was 4"" tribal fire surrounding a pentagram... Sweet!!! Once again Thor is amazing artist and over-all good dude. Management was very kewl, great tunes played in the back-ground, customer service is high quality, place is very clean & sanitary which to me is the most important thing in that kind of environment. Over-all great experience.. going back next month for another> ask for Thor the man!
