Recommend me some tattoo shops in Chicago!

Recommended Posts

Planning on getting my next tattoo sometime soon.. As in a week or so & I'm looking for a shop that I could hopefully regular whenever my budget is up.

Would really like to hear about some well done work but at a decent cost, and not all that far from my area ;-)

which by the way, is near Midway Airport. Or near Cicero, whichever helps capture the image better.

Lets go!

I go to Deluxe Tattoo when I'm in Chicago (Chris Smith, Hanna Aitchison, Miles Maniaci etc). And Asado Coffee is just down the street, so you can get some excellent drip coffee too.

Tim Biedron at Pioneer. "Decent price" and Tim probably don't go hand in hand though. Not that he overcharges but it sounds like you want something done on a budget which I would imagine wouldn't be up his alley being one of the best in the game. But if you were willing to save and wait thats who I would suggest depending on what you want ofcourse.

I actually just booked in today for Deluxe again in late June ... Knee piece...

Never knew Pioneer Tattoo existed, had fun browsing the site. Biedron's new school (if that's the right term) = pretty impressive stuff.

Anytime you want to breathe in history, and be able to hear it from the people that wrote it, Chicago Tattooing Company wins hands down, but I gotta agree with Matthew B, can't go wrong at any of those spots!

I would recommend Chris Smith at Deluxe tattoo if you're trying to get some traditional work done. He was $150 an hour which is pretty average and may work with you on the price depending on how big your piece is =].

That's the tattooing covered... More importantly, where are the essential places to eat!?

The Purple Pig, Lou Malinati's, XOCO... I'll be hitting those up again. Want to make it down for a burger at Kuma's Corner this time too. And I know Original Pancake House is probably 'meh' for you North Americans, but we don't get many such well-executed heart-exploding breakfast establishments here, so I'll be popping back in there too...
