Durango Street Style: Button-ups and tattoos from Fifth Dimension in Durango

by Patty Templeton

Eddie McGuire is the gregarious sort with a giant smile, welcoming conversation, and if you’ve been to Moe’s, you’ve seen him behind the bar.

DGO chatted up McGuire about his laid-back, button-up style.

“When I first moved out here, I was almost traditional Durango where, not to be rude, I didn’t give a shit. I dressed in raggedy clothes. It wasn’t a priority. Once I started bartending at Moe’s, I decided I had to look a little more professional. I don’t know what I am. Hipster chic? [Laughs] I’ve got tattoos and gauges and I like to look nice. So it’s a lotta button-ups, grays, maroons. I like to pretend that I look like a rock star but I feel like I look like anyone else.

When I was younger I had an idea of getting a whole sleeve done. Then I didn’t get my first tattoo till I was 21. From then I got into piecing together a sleeve. It’s turned out they’re all asymmetrical but matching. Most have some sort of significance.

My owl is for my son. My candle is an homage to Anthony Green and Circa Survive. I put the owl right there because the same day I found out I was having my son I was getting my candle tattoo. The poppies are for my parents … There’s a symbol from a Bon Iver song called ‘33 ‘God.’’ Arrows are for me and two other friends who learned how to shoot archery at the same time.

My butterfly, I kinda got that whimsically. I was hanging out with my tattoo artist friend and was like, ‘Are you gonna tattoo me or what?’ and he was like, ‘Well, pick something out, stupid!’ [Laughs]

I go to Fifth Dimension Tattoo with Jesus Gonzalez. He’s my go-to guy, right now. Really good and at a good price. He’s done four tattoos on me now.”
