Minneapolis, in the state of Minnesota is one of two cities, the other being Saint Paul, that create the Twin Cities. This title indicates that the two cities were once separate although close in proximity but as development and growth progressed, the two cities merged together to create one large metropolitan area. There are over two hundred municipalities that are included in this area (within over a dozen counties) however Minneapolis is the greatest and most populated. The city is split by the Mississippi River which provides Minneapolis with beautiful natural scenery and plenty of greenspace. Along with the river, there are 13 lakes located in the city attributed to the large glacier that stretched across the country tens of thousands of years ago.The name Minneapolis comes from the Dakota Sioux word for water, mni, and the Greek word for city, polis. The Dakota Sioux were the first inhabitants of the land that would become Minneapolis and are deeply integrated into the city’s history. In 1867, Minneapolis was established as a city and found itself expanding quickly because of the ability to harness waterpower from the waterfalls nearby. The labor necessary to operate the technology and the industries that came out of it attracted workers from around the country. Minneapolis is known for its city-wide support of art, music, and theater. There is a large amount of theaters in the city that caters to several troupes of actors and diverse written works. There are a number of historic theaters as well that have been restored to provide more venues for shows and performances. The city also hosts several festivals and fairs annually to help promote the arts like the Fringe Festival, May Day Parade, and many other summer art fairs. There are dozens of regional and neighborhood parks in Minneapolis, most of which are open from early morning to midnight, allowing for hours of recreation time. The Saint Anthony Falls, the waterfall system that lies within the borders of Minneapolis, create a scenic dynamic that the city’s history is built around. The boom of the late 19th century and the ability to utilize the falls as a power source allowed the city to flourish with the introduction of sawmills, textile mills, and flour mills all powered by the rushing water. These industries built the city into the modern metropolis it has become. While providing work for eager laborers in the mills, the falls also required a series of dams and locks so that the raging water could be controlled and used more efficiently. With the abundance of work, a diverse group of pioneers and Europeans came to live and build families in the young city. Minneapolis is well-known for its Skyway System, a series of covered footbridges for pedestrian use that spans more than 11 miles throughout the downtown area. The project began in the early 1970s and wasn’t completed until 1976. The bridge allows access to multiple buildings and businesses, ensuring that in the cold Minnesota winters pedestrians need not traverse far outdoors. Minneapolis, Minnesota has a rich tattoo history. Featuring shops such as Saint Sabrina’s, Uptown Tattoo, Leviticus, and Twilight Tattoo, Minneapolis is a great destination if you’re looking for some new ink. With a population of around 388,000, there are lots of potential customers for the parlors in town. Yelp currently lists 39 different shops when searching for “tattoo” in Minneapolis. Google Places lists 164 different tattoo shops in the Minneapolis area, which shows how competitive the city truly is. When doing research for your artist, we suggest not paying too much attention to price because quality is much more important when you’re going to be living with the artwork for the rest of your life.
