Denver arts community mourns Sol Tribe owner and muralist Alicia Cardenas and others killed in mass

This god awful shit just goes on and on.

When National Poetry Series champion Dominique Christina saw the Denver Police Department tweeting about a mass shooting that started at 1st and Broadway Monday night, she thought about calling one of her best friends, tattoo artist and muralist Alicia Cardenas. Cardenas’s shop, Sol Tribe Custom Tattoo and Body Piercing, was on the block, and she would surely know what had happened.

“Then I thought, she’s not usually there on Monday, so that’s fine,” Christina recalled thinking. “Also, I’m not going to text her and ask her about it right now, because I don’t want her to cuss me out about putting that energy out there. So I’m just gonna wait, and I’ll call her tomorrow, and I’ll ask her what she heard.”

Of course her friend would be OK, Christina remembered thinking. She believed Cardenas was impervious. Even supernatural.

But when Christina woke up Tuesday morning, she learned that Cardenas had been murdered at the tattoo and piercing studio around 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 27.
