Vinny has been tattooing for eleven years now. The majority of his work is american traditional but he has the skills to tattoo just about anything. One of his favorite things is drawing up custom fonts and lettering for his clients. When he isn't tattooing he's probably playing a show with his band "THE POTATO PIRATES".
Ben Granillo is a Colorado native who has over 7 years of professional tattooing experience. He is fun to work with and loves working with people to create the perfect tattoo. With his years of experience he can help guide you through the tattoo process from inception to a finished tattoo with beautiful results. He enjoys making strong, bold tattoos that are easy to read, such as traditional, tribal, Polynesian and Japanese. He also loves making beautiful floral tattoos and Colorado wilderness themed work. When he’s not at Tribe, he enjoys spending time with his family in the great outdoors! Please book a consultation with him to start the tattoo process or just come by and chat with him. He works Friday - Monday, open to close, every week.

Connie has been at Tribe Tattoo since the start of her career. Even as a native to Colorado, you're more likely to find her staying true to the city limits instead of out in the wilderness.
