Fortune Cookie Tattoo is located in the heart of downtown Denver. The owner, Jon, is a true genius behind the gun. He is known to be quick, precise and passionate, what serious customers look for in a tattoo artist. The shop itself definitely holds a professional standard for its cleanliness and by the book sanitary precautions that are obvious when you're inside the place. Considering how clean and sanitary a parlor is before you choose to get a tattoo done there is very important. A tattoo gun punctures the skin and injects a drop of ink into the skin. A puncture wound has a great chance of becoming infected and has the potential for disease transmission. Most materials used in the application process should be disposable. Things like the ink cartridges, ink cups, needles, and gloves. Fortune Cookie Tattoo follows these guidelines as they only use single-use materials that arrive in sterile packaging. Time and money should definitely be a factor when deciding where you want to get tattooed. You’re paying for something that’s going to be on your body for the rest of your life, so you don’t want to go searching for bargains. You also don’t want to overpay for a tattoo. Smaller tattoos done in professional shops typically won’t be more than $100. Larger pieces vary depending on detail. You want an artist that can work efficiently, meaning they go at a steady pace but not quick enough to affect the quality of the tattoo. Some pieces do require multiple sessions. Jon is the head artist at Fortune Cookie and is very accommodating to his customers wallets, but does set a higher price for higher detailed pieces. He gives an estimate on price and time once the sketches are drawn, which is helpful to customers who want to have a complete idea of what’s to come with their tattoo. Tattoo artists have specific styles that they excel in and other styles that they may not be as skilled at. Its important to pick an artist that specializes in the style you’re looking for. Fortune Cookie houses four talented artists. Jon Lew, Dan Archer, Jay Stein, and Bonnie. Jon focuses on custom neo-traditional pieces with a lot of color. Dan specializes in illustrative styles such as American & Japanese Traditional, Newschool, and New-Traditional. Jay and Bonnie are skilled in all genres and are willing to work with the artist’s imagination. Professional tattoo parlors like Fortune Cookie are hard to come by. The strict sanitary precautions, affordability, and widespread artistic skill in different genres makes it one of the top 3 shops in Denver. This shop will really make you feel at home as it’s easy to connect with your artist and express your wants. Customers are sure to feel comfortable with the tattoo process and the outcome.
We get take out or delivery frequently at Wok Uptown. Service is friendly and helpful but the food is the highlight. The beef dishes are made with steak, chicken is tender, shrimp are nice and plumb and fresh veggies are crispy. I love the Sacha triple delight which has plenty of veggies, chicken, shrimp and beef all in one....served over steamed jasmine rice and that is perfection. The sauce is spicy with lots of flavor. Chicken dumplings are the best in town and my kids are addicted to their crab cheese wontons. My wife loves the Asian Noodle bowls with rice noodles and it is gluten free. She loves Wok Uptown because they are willing to modify any dish since it is cooked to order and offer a lot of gluten free entrees, too. She just had the new Shanghai Bok choy dish and loved it. Wok Uptown Is our favorite Chinese restaurant in downtown Denver because the food is always great and the value surpasses any other place around here. Highly recommended!
In my first meal at Star Kitchen, I was pleased to discover a menu full of many great choices and old favorites. The food was very good and so was the service on a busy Saturday night. I had planned on being a regular. However, I later found my bank account was charged a 26% tip, when I had left an 18% tip. I disputed the charge I did not sign for through my bank, and the bank – not the restaurant – refunded me the unauthorized tip. There was also a security issue: The restaurant allowed a man to distribute marketing flyers at its front door, and when I refused a flyer on the way into the restaurant, the man blocked me from getting to my car on the way out. He stood in front of my car door. I had to tell him several times to leave me alone to be able to drive away. This made me uncomfortable and was an unpleasant way to end my meal. I alerted the restaurant, but don’t know whether any action was taken to prevent this from happening to other customers.
Strange Grounds is a diamond in the rough. The atmosphere and staff welcome you like old friends and family in their home-away-from-home, and their eats and treats are surprisingly decadent being made from scratch with love. Morning hours vary (and the door says 10ish, which is fair) because their night life is thriving with live music and comedy. The best part? Live acoustic music happens all the time, and many local groups choose to grace their house with live music while they jam together. Frieda has managed to cultivate a wonderful place for creatives and intellectuals to gather and mingle like coffee shops of old, and I look forward to watching her place grow through the years while I and all the new friends I've made here enjoy her fantastic coffee, wonderful food, and beautiful music together.

Did my first walk-in for a tat, normally do a lot of research looking at profiles. I am very happy with a piece and time I got from Billy. Very educated artist, clean, and awesome experience.. Will be going back in 4 months for a four hour set down on a large 1/2 done piece. Looking forward. I am very picky about whom inks me and skill. For a wim out of the blue walk in, I was very pleased and glade I did, found a new awesome place for a finishing of my sleeve and more down the road. out of town visitor-- from Colby, Ks/BFE
