Tattoo Talk: Ryan Willard on hard work, Denver's tattoo scene and Abraham Lincoln

Ryan Willard has been working non-stop since he started tattooing ten years ago. He's is the owner of Marion Street Tattoo (where yours truly got a tattoo a few months ago), which will be celebrating its fourth anniversary in April. Willard plans to spend the year traveling and tattooing across the U.S. and Germany; before he takes off, we caught up with him to talk about his background, his thoughts on running a business and the tattoo industry in Denver.
