Alex Taylor is a co-owner of the shop and has lived in Denver since 2009. He worked with his business partner and friend Moeh Haywood at Newspeak before taking the shop over and changing the name to Crimson Hilt in 2012. “I consider myself to be very fortunate. I have my dream job in an awesome environment, with fellow artists that believe it better to contribute to tattoo, instead of concerning themselves with what they can take from it. My brothers and I push each other every day to be better than the previous day. I have an awesome clientele, wife, friends and family that without I would be nothing.”

Alex’s style is heavily influenced by Traditional American and Traditional Japanese tattooing. He is also heavily influenced by Surrealism as well as Art Nuevo. “I strive to not fall into any category, it is a fear of mine to be pigeon holed into any one style.  I love the challenge of a well planned, large scale custom tattoo; as well as an “on the fly” walk in, they both present a different challenge.”

“As long as I have a machine in hand or a paint brush I am a happy camper! I hope this has been somewhat helpful in your quest to find the right artist, I hope to see you in the shop soon.”
