Our professional artists offer any and all styles of tattooing. Experienced piercers can provide a wide variety of peircings. All this and quality jewelry. We care about our client’s decision in getting tattooed or pierced, and the experience that they have will determine whether or not they come back through our door. We feel a good tattoo is not how it looks 10 minutes after being put on, but how it looks 10 years later.
Owner, Tattoo Artist
My name is Greg Skibo and I'm the founder of Skibo's Tattoo, which opened in the spring of 1982. I have been tattooing since 1974. This was preceded by a stint at CIA, Colorado Institute of Art, and a series of jobs including Commercial Artist, pasteup artist, retouching/ repairing antique photos, airbrush artist, sign painter and a variety of other creative endeavors.
Ever since I found out I had some art talent I knew I wanted to be a tattoo artist. About the ripe age of 13, I started to really get into the look of tattoos. I loved the way that someone with heavy coverage stood out in the room. So I started purchasing tattoo magazines whenever I could scrounge up enough cash. My tattoo magazine collection was (and still is) larger than most of my friends fathers nudie mag collections. I would spend hours and hours stylistically mimicking images I would see in magazines, metal album covers and horror movies and turn them in as art assignments in school.

I started my apprenticeship here at Skibos in July of 2007 in both piercing and tattooing. I had no idea this job could be so much fun! Prior to that I attended Western State College of Colorado in Gunnison where I earned a bachelor of fine arts degree in graphic design with a minor in business. I've always been kind of an art geek; like being a senior editor of my high school yearbook and senior photography editor of my college newspaper, but I've always loved to do it! In July of 2012 I reached my 5 year mark tattooing and in the same shop I got my start in:)
