Amanda Sharpless

Tattoo Artist – Boulder
Hi, my name is Amanda and I’ve been tattooing since 2008. My whole life has been filled with art; as a small child, my parents would find me awake, late at night, drawing quietly in my room. As an adult, I found myself drawn to making a living at art and graduated with a degree in fine arts from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. Unfortunately, an artist’s career is easier said than done.

Roller derby took over my life in 2005 and that’s where I started falling in love with the art of tattooing. Through one of the Derby Dames, I met some tattooists at a local reputable shop. Steve Bauer, the owner of Premier Tattoo, took me on as an apprentice. I spent two years there before I moved up to Tribal Rites Tattoo and Piercing in Boulder, Colorado.

In Boulder, I’ve branched out and expanded my technique and style. I apply myself diligently to my work and learn new things every day while making people more colorful.
I just left tribal rites with my second tattoo done by miss amazing Amanda. I have to say that was the best experience I had ever had with any of my tattoos (I have seven done by four different artists) My shoulder piece looks absolutely wonderful! Amanda and the rest of the staff are so down to earth and I felt comfortable in there through both of my tattoos. Amanda drew up my tattoo by herself and she proved to be a really talented artist who clearly loves her what she does. She even came in early and stayed late to get the tattoo done to it’s full potential. I will return to Tribal Rites and Amanda for all my future tattoos.
