It’s been a few years since she’s been on the track, but I was lucky enough to have Rad Die stop by for a shoot a few months ago. Finally getting around to sharing! Enjoy…

About Maggie’s Tattoos
I don’t think that anyone that gets tattooed has a tattoo that doesn’t have some form of meaning, story, or memory behind it. Even my most spontaneous of tattoos have entertaining stories behind them. I couldn’t imagine any tattoo not having some form of significance.

From head to toe:

Clover on Shoulder: Credit: Lady of the Lake Tattoo, Loveland, CO. This is a matching tattoo that I have with a friend. I am a great lover of Celtic artwork, and tend to have a remarkable stroke of luck when it comes to life.

Right Arm: Carp Fish: Van at Rocky Mountain Tattoo, Denver, CO. This tattoo represents my astrological sign, Pisces. I am not one who puts a lot of stock into Astrology, but as I’ve gotten older, can’t help but notice that I am extremely drawn to water, and meet many of the traits of this water sign. This tattoo also has a bit of a Yin-Yang element to it, as I believe in a lot of balance in life. An additional significance to this tattoo is that it represents one of my grandfathers and his love of fishing and outdoors.

Nautical Star: I got this tattoo during a turning point in my life. I was a bit of a shit show and the star represents a compass, as the stars used to be for sailors. It was meant to guide me through this time. Inside is a negative space that is the astrological symbol for Pisces, and the star is surrounded by water.

Right wrist: Black Cat: Moeh at Crimson Hilt Tattoo, Denver, CO (@moehskee on insta). This was the first Friday the 13 th tattoo I received. I didn’t care much for the flash the other shops were posting, but wanted to get tattooed. I wanted to get a black cat, but I had him change the word on the banner from “unlucky” to “lucky,” given my ridiculous luck.

Left wrist: Rose: Moeh at Crimson Hilt Tattoo, Denver, CO (@moehskee on insta). My second Friday the 13th Tattoo…I really liked this flash and wanted something pretty and feminine.

Left Hip: Magenta Star: Lady of the Lake Tattoo, Loveland, CO. This is another matching tattoo I have with a friend. The idea was that everyone in our friend group would get this simple tattoo in their favorite color – – of course the day we decided to go, everyone bailed except the two of us, so we went ahead and still got them.

Lower back: Mermaid: Moeh at Crimson Hilt Tattoo, Denver, CO (@moehskee on insta). This tattoo probably has the most meaning of any of them to me. It is a cover up (if you look closely you can sort of see the old tattoo underneath, which was designed by my high school boyfriend and I got after I graduated high school). It represented a huge life change for me…I’d wanted to get my old tattoo covered up for a long time, not because I didn’t like it, but just because I’d outgrown it. I decided to divorce my husband of 9 years several months earlier and was getting ready to make a big move for the first time in my life. It represents a new life.

Right Thigh: Horseshoe: Moeh at Crimson Hilt Tattoo, Denver, CO (@moehskee on insta). This was my first tattoo after I’d decided to divorce my husband – kind of represented my new-found freedom. You know how I kept referring to my luck? Yeah. I’m lucky. Really freaking lucky…but oddly enough, that luck seemed to be non-existent while I was with my husband. I noticed this pretty early on in our relationship…things that typically worked out in my favor no longer happened, and it seemed like when there was the slightest chance for something to go wrong, it would. I once heard his mom refer to something she called the “Pitchford curse.” The minute I ditched him, things started working out in my favor once again.

Right Inner Ankle: The Last Unicorn: (Honestly can’t remember the artist or shop name) Fort Collins, CO. This was my second tattoo — The Last Unicorn was a fairly obscure movie from my childhood and was my absolute favorite. This tattoo marked my first time living away from home and starting college.

Right Outer Calf: Deer: Little Alex at Crimsom Hilt Tattoo, Denver, CO. This was my first Friday the 13 th tattoo out with deby girls. I chose the deer because my family is really big into outdoors and wildlife. We almost always had deer in my yard growing up. This design is done in Tibetan style, so since this photo shoot, I’ve added some clouds to even it out with the tattoo on my other calf.

Left Outer Calf: Bird: Moeh at Crimson Hilt Tattoo, Denver, CO (@moehskee on insta). This tattoo represents my other grandfather, who was a pilot and passed away the night before I got this tattoo.

Left Foot: Pawprint: Rockstar Tattoo, Boulder, CO. So, there’s a bit of a funny story behind this one….a friend of mine had talked me into going on a blind double-date with her. She’d been out with her dude a few times before and he had a friend. They were 21 and we were 20….but the guys really wanted to take us to play pool. We finally found a place that would let us in being under 21, but by that time I detested both guys so much, I just ghosted and went across the street to the tattoo parlor. I chose a pawprint because I’d just earned my certificate of completion from dog grooming school and decided it would be fun to mark the occasion.

Since the shoot, I’ve added one tattoo that’s not pictured: Left Ribs: Colfax street sign: Moeh at Crimson Hilt Tattoo, Denver, CO (@moehskee on insta). This tattoo marked my leaving Colorado…I’ve lived in Colorado pretty much my whole life so moving to California was a HUGE deal for me.

About Lux’ Tattoos
Tattoos have a way of allowing you to share your stories and feelings with the world. Each one for me is a representation of a time or place I needed to seal into my soul. A reminder that sometimes the pain in this life is what makes us each beautiful.

I must say my favorite is the roller skate on my left arm. It is an actual replica of my Grandmother’s skate from 1940s. Her and my grandfather met at a roller rink and after falling in love traveled the country doing what we call now Jam skate shows! I’m so proud to share a passion with them and a piece of their history!

I have had the pleasure of working with several artist. The two that own most of my real estate are…

Erik Campbell @ The Black Pearl Tattoo in Grand Junction, CO
Lilith Jacobs @ Lady Luck Tattoo in Aurora, CO

Some other shop shout outs go to…
Voodoo Tattoo in Las Vegas, NV
The BeeHive in Branson, MO
Twisted Soul in Denver, CO

I’m thrilled to have found a local talented artist in fellow RMRG derby girl Sweetie Ramone! Thanks for making me proud of my body in only the way true art can!

About Robin’s Tattoos

Peace/Love/World Tat: My 1st tattoo. Grew up in St. Louis and crossed the river into East St. Louis to get this done. Was doing a research paper on tattoos for a college class. No idea who or where I actually got this but I did get an A on my paper. Chose this design but I do believe in and want Peace and Love in the world. I have hippie inclinations I guess.

Lion Tat: My 2nd tattoo. Got it at Bound by Design on Colfax. Do not remember the guys name but he was amazing! I brought in a copy of the lion I wanted drawn and he free-handed it on my skin. Yes, I am a Leo too.

Road Runner Tat: My 3rd. Also done at Bound by Design. I used to be REALLY fast when I was younger and playing rugby. They used to be a sponsor of the rugby team I played for and I had won so much in free tattoos from them during a raffle.

Smiley Face Tat: My 4th. Bound by Design, with the raffle winnings. I just am a fan of smiley faces.

Darwin Fish Tat: My 5th. Bound by Design. I’m an Archaeologist so believe in the whole evolution thing.

Four Leaf Clover Tat: My 6th. Tribal Rites in Fort Collins. This is when my tats start getting way more meaningful. When my mom passed away I wanted something to make me think of her and smile. I always remember us going in the backyard when I was a kid and looking for 4-leaf clovers. She could ALWAYS find them and I was amazed at it. Good childhood memory. The design came from one of my friends who’s an artist and was just drawing different options on what the leaf could look like and I liked how they all looked different and weren’t connected. I felt that represented me and my family the best in that we are/were connected but yet not. Plus, I like abstract art so seemed perfect for me.

Strength Tat: My 7th. Smokey Banana in Broomfield. I felt I also needed something to remind me of my dad and that I am a strong person because of him. He also passed away (many years before my mom) and he was a very Red Foreman from that 70s show kinda dad. Tough love and all. So, I decided to go with a tattoo that symbolized me holding hands with strength (the part that wraps around my hand).
