Glory Badges Tattoo provides amazing custom art and great customer service. We believe in giving our clients the entire experience, from getting to know them and their style to creating a one of a kind drawing. This ensures that each person gets exactly the art and tattoo they helped design, in a fun atmosphere that they'll want to tell their friends about.
We opened Glory Badges Tattoo in the summer of 2003 right next door to a pizzeria in downtown Colorado Springs. We moved a year later to our current location, a block east on the corner of Weber and Platte. Since then, we have made it our permanent home. Now we celebrate our 11th year and have all of our amazing clients to thank for it! We try to make everybody feel comfortable and let everybody know they are welcome. What sets us apart from other shops is our ATTITUDE. We actually love what we do, and we all get along so we can't help express that in our day to day. Even though we have all won awards for our tattoos, we always know our number one job is making people happy.
If we haven't tattooed you already, we are looking forward to it!
A lot of people ask me (Maria, owner of Glory Badges) how I came up with the name Glory Badges Tattoo. I have even heard rumors that people think I have been in the Army. Growing up in a patriotic family, military service always seemed like something important to me. I basically did what one of my good friends did in middle school when looking for a new name for his punk band--grabbed a dictionary. I scrolled through and wrote the words that stood out to me on a piece of paper. The first one (or two) starting from the back, were "Old Glory." I turned the book over and started from the front, and wrote down "Badges" after reading the definition. I then realized I had come up with Glory Badges, which was basically what a tattoo was. The rest is history!
