Who tattoos tattoo artists? Other tattoo artists, of course. And for many, finding the right artists to decorate their bodies becomes more important as they grow older and their skin is increasingly covered in ink. Some artists' choices are inspired by travel or their countries of origin, others by family, and a few have a laissez-faire attitude when it comes to the tattoos they sport. Click the link in our bio for some of Denver's best tattoo artists' favorite pieces on their own bodies, and the stories behind them. 📸: @jakecoxphoto . . .

It's no surprise Denver is a city undergoing a seemingly endless redesign, and it's not just big developers in on the action. Homeowners, business owners, artists and nonprofits alike are reworking how public and private spaces function. To celebrate all this, Mayor Michael Hancock has announced the winners of the 2018 Mayor's Design Awards, honoring new projects like the Art Alley at Dairy Block, updates on historical mainstays like the Molly Brown House renovation, and forward thinking infrastructure projects like the River North Stormwater Outfall (pictured). Hancock will present the awards at a ceremony at 6 p.m., Thursday, November 8. Click the link in our bio for more award recipients. Photo courtesy of Denver Community Planning and Development.
