I met Meredith last week at Blue Rose Tattoo parlor on University Hill in Boulder. Meredith moved here from Florida and pursued her passion in body art and piercings.

Meet Chance! Chance works at his family’s wedding dress shop and spends his time learning about the business. The Wedding Seamstress has been a part of his family for the past seven years in Old Town Arvada. Chance is very outgoing and passionate about many things in his life, and his unwavering respect and love for his stepfather is one of those. “On my arm I have two ribbons on my wrist; one is black and that is for melanoma, and one is purple for domestic violence.
