Two Thunders Tattoo was established in 2020 by tattoo artists Cante Eagle Horse and Tanner Minock.

We are a new Indigenous/Queer owned private tattoo studio in downtown Denver, Colorado, operating on the unceded territories of the Arapaho (hinono’eino’biito’owu’), Cheyenne (Tséstho’e), Ute (Núu-agha-tuvu-pu) and Očhéthi Šakówin.

Cante Eagle Horse

Cante Eagle Horse is a Lakota Artist from Colorado and the co-owner of Two Thunders Tattoo. Their primary goal was to create a safe space for the healing of underrepresented bodies and voices in the tattoo community while being able to giving back. Cante is now going into their 6th year of tattooing. All floral, nature related, fine line and traditional ideas are welcome but open to any project, in black and grey or color as well as non-tattoo related commissions. Check out their website for more photos and FAQs.

Cante accepts she/they pronouns, but instead of pronouns, Cante is preferred in their place. Cante is pronounced as Chun-tay.
