Kira Knowlton took over the Lodge in September 2022. Originally a Denver native, Kira strives to bring modern practices and techniques to the western slope. Her best work is completed when given creative freedom. From large scale to one shot bangers, Kira enjoys full color, monochromatic or black and gray tattooing. Kira gravitates to projects within neotraditional, neoromantic, medieval, gothic, victorian, cottage core, anime/pop culture subjects, illustrative and blackwork. She is more likely to take on projects based within these subjects, and is prioritizing bookings requesting her pre drawn designs!
