TATTOO FACTORY 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.
Called about walk-ins, and after discussing my idea, the staff referred me to Frosty. Showed him my references, and he sketched up two incredible pieces. Total time spent there was around 5 hours (definitely bring something to kill time i.e a book, podcast, etc.) and the price was stellar for such an amazing piece. All of the staff were so friendly and accommodating. 10/10 will definitely be going back. Thank you Frosty & team!
frosty is awesome!!! he’s very patient, friendly, and went above and beyond to make sure i liked what i was getting. he also did my finger tattoos a few years back, noticed they were fading a bit, and went ahead to touch them up for me! his work is very precise. and and he gave me a bunch of stickers at the end. frosty rocks

CHICAGO INK TATTOO & BODY PIERCING REVIEWS
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.
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.
Absolutely love this place! Been here on three separate occasions and they have never let me down. Both Elizabeth and Andres are amazing at what they do and will highly recommend them for any piercings or tattoos.

INSIGHT STUDIOS REVIEWS
I took my 7 year old in to get her ears pierced after doing extensive research for qualified and certified piercers in the area. She was incredibly excited after having spent the last year asking for them. Everyone at the shop was incredibly kind and helpful. Bob Jones was great with my daughter, even when she was having a tough time after getting the first ear done. Very patient, he had a good pep talk with her and they were able to finish up. She can't stop talking about how much she loves them. The shop was immaculately clean and we enjoyed our experience. Highly recommend Insight and Bob Jones for piercings.
This is a very interesting studio,its worth a trip just to check it out! Wendell did my piece, he did an amazing job, even better than I expected . All in all it's a very professional, pleasant & friendly, atmosphere located right here in Chicago????. I know I'll be back .
Did a walk in tattoo, and brought a design for a great white shark my sister made. Was brought back immediately and my tattoo done within 30 minutes. The line work is outstanding, and I'm pretty sure we'll fly back to Chicago just for our next tattoos! The earth ending tattoo was not done by them, FYI
