Juan Canon, West Side Tattoo, Colorado Springs, CO

Juan Canon


Greetings and Salutaions. I'm Juan. I've been making tattoos at West Side for the better half of my 12 years as a scab merchant. I enjoy long walks on the beach, hunting unicorns, and looking like chewbaccas illegitimate cousin.  I will tattoo almost anything you put in front of me if you'll let me be your huckleberry. I've learned how to walk and write twice, which was super fun. So come down to get some bold and colorful scabs. @obijuantattoos on the instagrams

Hannah Shea


My name is Hannah Shea and I am a blackwork/ dot work tattooer. I moved to Colorado from Florida with 3 suitcases, my dog and a tattoo machine so I could surround myself with super talented artists and live in such a beautiful city. I grew up in a tattoo shop with my parents as artists, because of that I have always held the industry very close to my heart. In my free time I like to be out in the mountains hiking and that’s where I find a lot of my inspiration for my designs/art. I love tattooing animals, pets, greenery/florals, mystical creatures and lady faces. I really enjoy making my work with bold lines and thin intricate details. I would love to create something dope for you !:)

Christian Puig

Hi I'm Christian Puig,

Hello! My name is Christian. I specialize in black and grey tattoos and love doing dot work, mandalas, floral, ornamental and illustrative. I've created art since I was a child which eventually led me to CU Boulder, where I graduated with an art degree and a minor in French. I have since worked for a local artist aiding in the creation of large-scale abstract paintings and other contemporary works.  I have also painted murals and have a love for photography. Although I work with several mediums, diving into the world of tattoos has been a game changer.


In my free time I enjoy hiking with my dog Onyx, climbing, boarding, and anything with adventure!


Check out my work!

🇧🇷 Vicky Ellis 🇺🇸

Hello, I'm Vicky. I was born in a tropical forest in Brazil, under a mango tree. Since I was a child my favorite thing was drawing on caves' walls  using acai ink hoping that some day in a distant future someone would find them and think it was made by ETs. In 2017 I began my professional career  and the rest is history. I specialize in fine line work, but I also do a lot of dot work, black work, and colors.
