I sat next to Nick in high school art class and it was apparent from early on that he is a gifted artist. I also had classes with his now wife, Diana, who had already found her calling, and would do piercings during the daily math lesson. I was extremely impressed when I moved back to the Sterling, CO area to see that they had gotten married and opened a piercing/tattoo shop. I initially sought them out because I remembered how talented they are, but everything about their shop is amazing, from the quality of work, to the pricing, to their awesome personalities that set a great atmosphere. When getting ink, I was allowed to pick the music playing, and Nick redrew and replaced my tattoo until it was exactly how I imagined it. While getting pierced, Diana had such a calm and confident demeanor (probably from so many years of experience!) that I felt completely at ease even while getting my skin punctured. It is obvious that Total Inkstruction is not just about business, but that they are truly passionate about what they do.
