i was really sad to hear about this shop closing. :( But i heard from one of my friends that 2tone opened up his own shop so i will definately have to go see him. The website is www.illstateink.com i dont know where it is exactly, but it should be on the website. I've been looking for 2tone ever since this shop closed and i know im not the only one! I ended up going to another shop and ended up with a regretful tattoo. But i know 2tone can fix it! :)

I went to this place after reading all the great reviews. Everyone was nice. The piercer (I forget her name) wasn't there when I came in but I only had to wait about 5 minutes. As I was picking out what ring I wanted, she told me she had left her equipment some place else. She told me I could come back the next day. I went to Chi-Town Tattoo's instead.

Pros: atmosphere, people, and the talent

Cons: none

I've gotten several things done here, from tattoos to piercings, and have never had a bad experience. First off, the shop is clean, open and an extremely friendly atmosphere. From the second you enter to the moment you leave, the guys there are just wonderful and make you feel right at home. They take pride in their work and will never make you feel embarrassed for having a question. The artists understand that tattoos are a big thing for anyone and will always work hard to give you exactly what you want. Everyone is always smiling and laughing, which helps to calm your nerves and keep you relaxed. Everything they do is custom and unique, just as any tattoo should be. Given the amount of talent and time the artists put into each thing they do, the prices are amazingly reasonable. I recommend The Gallery of Ink to everyone and will never go anywhere else.

My experience at The Gallery of Ink was great! when i walked into into the shop it was bright and clean. everywhere i looked i saw beautiful artwork on the walls which was a good distraction when i was getting my tattoo. all the guys were really nice and funny. they were joking around & laughing. it was like a big happy tattoo family. all the artists seemed happy to be there and the customers even more happy cuz they were getting their custom tattoos. me and my friends got tattoos from 2Tone and are very pleased with his work. i just told him an idea of something i wanted, and he drew up a beautiful unique design that i can treasure forever. overall my tattoo experience was great. nice clean shop, professional artists and and a good atmosphere where i felt comfortable and had a fun time. i will definately come back to the gallery of ink to get more tattoos. u can also look at all the artists' tattoos on their website.... thegalleryofink

My husband and I were looking for a place to get tattoos. We had an appointment earlier in the day at Blue Magic in Crystal Lake and we got screwed around by them for a 2nd time. So we were searching the internet and found The Gallery of Ink. From the first phone call when Steve answered, he was awesome. We drove out from the northwest suburbs into the city and we were greeted very warmly. When you walked in it was so clean and the windows were darkened on the outside so nobody could stare in. You had a lot of privacy. Steve was wonderful and great to talk to. He got us set up with our artists. I had Pete and my husband had Tim. They are two of the most chill, funniest people that we have ever met! They made us feel comfortable right away. They drew up our designs and within a 1/2 hour we were in the chairs. At no point was I uncomfortable. The whole shop was nice and friendly. We goofed around alot when getting tattooed and that took the pressure off. We were able to take breaks if needed. When my tattoo was done, Pete and Two Tone even walked with me so I could go buy a drink for me and my husband! Now that is great SERVICE!

They used disposable sterilized needles, always were changing their gloves and wiping down things. Their equipment was spotless. VERY CLEAN!!!

They show you the utmost respect and make you feel like part of the family. My husband and I HIGHLY recommend going to The Gallery of Ink whether its your first tattoo or 10th. I would say if you are someone who is considering getting their first tattoo, go to them!!! You will never have a better experience. They dont make you feel intimidated when you walk in the door.

We plan on going back to them in the near future and they are now the only shop we will go to. We have had quite a bit of bad experiences, but they blew away any other tattoo shop.

Thanks guys!!!!

The guys at the gallery are the most humble and down to earth kind of guys you'll will ever meet! I saw work that was done on some friends of mine and they told me about the gallery. They do only custom tattoos so you'll always have a unique tattoo that no one else has. I would highly recomend the gallery of ink to anybody who is looking to get a beautiful piece of artwork inked onto your skin.

This place is so freaking awesome!! FOR REAL!!!!!!!!!!!! I've seen all of the artist's work, and they are all so amazing at what they do....and so humble about their art. Arrogant artists seriously annoy me most of the time. Its very refreshing to walk into a shop and see some much great art everywhere without the arrogant attitudes. These guys are great! My step mom and I went to the gallery to get tattoos together. Pinga did mine and 2 tone did my step moms. Both of our tats turned out absolutely beautiful!!!!!!!! I get at least 1 comment every single day on my sunflower and I keep telling people that they gotta go experience the Gallery for themselves. I've been to other shops where while I was getting tattooed, other artists were hitting on me and making me feel totally uncomfortable. But thats not the case at The Gallery of Ink. These guys make you feel right at home and treat you with so much respect. As a woman, I definetely recommend this place. I promise that nobody there will make you feel uneasy! I actually was kinda sad to leave cuz I was having so much fun while I was there! Like I said, they are very humble and appreciate that your sitting in their chair and letting them put their art on your body. Pinga is the flower master in my opinion! He did my sunflower for me! And 2 Tone- my step mom has been raving about you since we left the shop. She keeps saying that when she comes back to town, she wants you to give her another one. Not only do they do amazing skin work, but I actually just bought a sick piece of wall art that Albert(one of the other tattoo artists) had displayed on the wall.. And I'm going back there to buy another one of his canvas paintings that is on one of the walls. I would love to have each one of the artist give me a tattoo, cuz they are all that talented. Good job guys!!! Keep it up! I'll be seeing you all very soon! I look forward to my future pieces of body art! Thanks again, much love

Great custom work tattoo shop. No flash art on the walls, which I personally like, so that way you don"t have the same tattoo as a hundred other people. All the artists are willing to work with you to get the tattoo right. And by artists I mean guys who can actually draw, not a bunch of scratchers tracing designs. Quality equipment and all pre-packaged sterilized needles and tubes. I've been to ALOT of shops in Chicago and elsewhere and these guys are awesome. For being great at what they do, they don't have that tattoo artist arrogance. Real comfortable atmosphere, like I knew these guys for years. Ping, Tone,Albo and Jimmy all do clean work with vibrant colors and tight lines. So whether it's your first tattoo or you are adding to your collection, The Gallery of Ink is the shop you wanna go to.

Getting tattooed takes a lot of thought.
You have to think about what you want, how you want it done, and who can do like you want it.
I've seen a lot of Pinga's work, and it's quite amazing,I've looked at the pictures taken of the art he has done on so many people, its breathtaking, the detail, the color, everything, it's just awesome. From the flicks on myspace and now the awesome website, you know just by looking at the previous work done, that you wont be disappointed, by any of the artists. They have all been in the industry a long time.
I've talked to the owners, the workers, some customers (all satisfied), & the artists, they are very comfortable to be around and extremely friendly professional people. The shop looks great, it's soooooo clean, and I know that this will be the place I will be getting my tattoos done.
The Gallery of Ink is so great, they customize the tattoos to exactly what you want them to be.

With all the tattoo shops in Chicago, alot of nice ink has been done and a lot of really bad tattoos have been done.
So go where the good ones are done.

Pros: The talent, and Prices

Cons: Needs a Marquee sign...(I passed the shop a couple of times driving there), meter parking

From the moment I walked into The Gallery of Ink I felt completely at ease. Many places greet you with egos and attitude but this place was totally free of any of that. Most importantly the shop was extremely clean and sanitary. The whole experience was great and my tattoo came out perfectly!

Gallery of Ink is awesome. I've been to many a tattoo shop, and was nothing but pleased from the moment I walked into the door. It's very clean, very friendly, I had an awesome all-around experience. I'm a little sad that I live over 2,000 miles away, but I'm glad I have a place in Chicago to come back to for more ink. I found them through this website with all the positive reviews, and I'm very happy to do the same. Pinga is a great tattoo artist. The rest of the staff were equally friendly, talkative and talented. Everyone was having a good time, there was no attitude or pressure like some other shops I've been to. It was a happy environment, which is a shame that more shops can't follow suit, and I think that helps these guys stand out. Biggest plus? The price. I live in Los Angeles where shop minimums are ridiculous, so not spending out the wazoo was a tremendous bonus. Don't think they cheap out, though. Their equipment was top notch and clean and the workmanship was A+. Tattoos at a comparable shop in LA would have easily doubled. I couldn't recommend a better place.

Cons: Nada.

This place has new twists and a comfortable atmosphere like I've never seen at a tattoo shop. It's the kind of place you don't mind chilling out while waiting for your artist to work on you. All of the artwork is custom drawn for each customer. They drew the tattoo right in front of me! Everyone is friendly and non pressuring. They were very helpful in designing my new tattoo to fit the type of person I am and never pushed in any way for me to get my tattoo "right now". In fact, they even told me if I wasn't sure what I wanted, come back when I am ready. I walk into this shop and am instantly reminded of a clean doctor's office. They use prepackaged plastic sterile tubes, and brand new needles. I won't go to any shop other than The Gallery of Ink ever again!

Pros: everything

Walking into The Gallery gives me a feeling of the most professional service in tattoo that I have ever had. To start off, the staff are one of the most down to earth people I have ever met. Although their work is some of the best that I have seen in this area, there is no hint of arrogance. I have gotten work done from several shops in the Chicago area and I have finally settled with The Gallery as my final resting place for the extensive art that I plan to get in the near future. I am no professional at writing reviews for anything. I felt urged to voice my opinion of this business. Simply because the work and level of professionalism was so high. The bottom line is that after several years of searching for an artist and a tattoo shop that was up to par with my standards, The Gallery of Ink delivered. Hands down, the best tattoo shop in the Chicago land area.
