TATTOO FACTORY INC. REVIEWS
I was in town for a few days with only about a week of planning. Definitely the nicest shop I've ever stepped foot in and I've been all over the country. The staff were friendly and Technique, who did my piece, gave me the best piece of artwork I now carry on my body. Instead of rushing his work he took his time to design it perfectly. I've decided to make Technique my regular artist, it's only a 5 hour drive but it's 100% worth it. Looking forward to working with you again! The pictures tell all here. Total time including design time was 7 hours.
Me and 2 other friends decided to go in for spontaneous walk in tattoos. We were the told the wait would be around an hour which was understandable due to the amount of people, but we only had to wait about 15 minutes then we each stared getting tattooed. Everyone was super friendly, especially Jeremy who tattooed me. He made me feel super comfortable, gave me advice on the placement & size of my tattoo, & kept me laughing which distracted me from my nervousness. This place was also the nicest/cleanest shop I’ve been in so far.
Amazing shop! Super talented artists and incredibly professional. We were walk-ins from out of town and we were so well taken care of. My artist was David Dillon. He did a ton of amazing work in a short period of time. My daughter had an equally killer artist. Can't recommend enough.

CHICAGO INK TATTOO & BODY PIERCING REVIEWS
I went here for a "big tattoo" it was my upper arm and Ruben nailed it. Each day I love it more and more. I was skeptical at first that someone could tattoo my dogs face and was originally just going to incorporate my dogs, dog tag. After seeing his work and talking more with Ruben, he gave me the confidence he could do it and he did it perfectly. I will gladly go back to him for his professional artwork. He has definitely mastered the craft. A+ work!!!!!!! See the photos and judge for yourself.
I love this place! Ive gotten all my piercings done here (helix’s, daith, rook, septum, and nose piercing). Honestly, this is the only place I would get pierced at. I love their new location and it’s super clean! All my piercings healed nicely and they’re very professional. The piercers are super friendly, cool and patient! I love how they inform you of everything after your service. I’ve always had an amazing experience and i will continue to keep coming. They’re very welcoming and make you feel secure under their care. Bryan, the person helping me pick out my jewelry, was super chill and very helpful.
My best friend and I have wanted matching tattoos for years but could never decide on one because our styles are so different. Not only did Rafael take us on short notice he designed a few samples and waited patiently while we made our decision. The facility is exceptionally clean and professional. Our tattoos came out better than we imagined. It was an amazing experience that we can add to our list of adventures we've had together.

INSIGHT STUDIOS REVIEWS
Just got my tattoo done and I absolutely love it here. We live about an hour south and it was definitely worth the drive. Amazingly nice staff, open and willing to changing and working with you if something isn’t quite right and overall beautiful and clean place. Even made conversation with some of the customers and they were extremely nice as-well.
I called as my nose piercing stud (got my nose pierced about 6 months ago) had fallen out the night before and I was nervous it may close. They were able to fit me in as a walk in and get it fixed with new jewelry quite quickly. I decided to add on a cartilage piecing and they were able to accommodate myself and friends easily. Overall the experience was great.
Great experience, Nicole very friendly, professional, courteous!! I recommend Bob Jones very knowledgeable, friendly,courteous, professional..Highly recommended and agree!!.
