Traveling: Studio/Places Recommendations

Recommended Posts

In 2 weeks I will be going to Canada: Repentigny Quebec to be exact.

Any body from up that area that can recommend a good studio and good places to eat and visit?

Also I have a layover of 4hrs in Chicago Ohaire... Looking to do something during that time. Any recommendations up in that area as well?

Thank you!

Depends on what time your flight comes in - four hours at O'Hare can easily turn into eight, but it can also shrink to two if you're incoming flight is late. Four hours is cutting it close to make it "downtown" but you could run through the park and see the lake.

You can get on the L at the airport. It probably takes 50 minutes to get to the Loop, 45 minutes to get to Lincoln Park, 45 minutes to get to Great Lakes Tattoo...

There is Frank Lloyd Wright stuff in Oak Park, close to the airport.

There's a huge outlet mall right at the airport.

There is food - everywhere. Chicago is an excellent food town. My suggestion would be to eat :)

Awesome! My flight is there @ 12:00PM and leaves around 5:15PM to Canada. Thanks @Tornado6!

The only recommendations I will ever make for Canada:

1. Try the fries and gravy. It's really good.

2. Go to the biggest lake you can find and try to catch a Northern Pike. Those are some of the most fun fish to reel in. Last time I went I brought in a 42 incher so tough I thought I'd snagged a sunk tree and couldn't even hold him properly for a good picture.

    • Hi Lilu can I ask what your tattoo looks like now? I have a similar problem with my new tat
    • Hi everyone, I got a floral tat on my arm exactly a week ago. The little turtle in the middle has been there for a few years, the flowers around it are new. Fresh out of the chair the shading was light and perfect. But three days later I noticed the three flowers closer to my elbow were getting darker - specifically that the shading was getting darker. The flowers closer to my wrist are not so bad. A week on now and the dark shading in the petals seems to have gotten slightly darker still. Is this normal? Could it be a subtle form of blow out? I really liked the lighter shading and I feel like it is now too dark, I'm hoping after everything has peeled it will look lighter again. Photos attached I know we won't fully know what it looks like until it's healed in 4-6 weeks but any help in the meantime would be hugely appreciated, especially if anyone thinks this is blow out or has similar experience with shading that seemed to get darker instead of lighter Ps I'm in Sydney Australia where covid restrictions have lifted for tattoo parlours
