Hello, and thank you for visiting patrickshackley.com

Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, I moved to Colorado Springs in 1995 for my tattoo apprenticeship. After a few years in a street shop, I returned to Denver in 1998 and began concentrating mainly on custom work.

If you’d like to make an appointment, I can be reached at;

Monarch Tattoo Studio

Early on, I was heavily influenced by the literary works of H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Ray Bradbury and Stephen King. Artistically, I am captivated by the works of Frank Frazetta, Phil Hale, John Singer Sargent and Adam Hughes, among many, many others. Tattoo influences are varied and changing daily. I admire people who have  a distinct style yet remain versatile.

Always striving to be better and learn more, I embrace the concept of the “perpetual journeyman”. I am confident in my abilities but open to new ideas and methods. I believe that once you think you know it all, you stop growing, both in art and in life.

My main goal with tattooing is to, not only, do the best work that I am able, but to create a friendly and welcoming, collaborative, environment for my clients.

Aside from tattooing, I enjoy painting in oils and acrylics, sculpture, wood carving, playing music and getting up to the hills for a healthy dose of nature.

Thank you,
