I originally went to Chicago Tattooing Co. with my sister-in-law so that she could get a tattoo. While I was there, I ended up getting my piercing exchanged and had one of their piercers do it for me. She was very nice and everything was very sterile. The parlor is large and very clean. They follow the correct protocol on piercing and tattooing. My sister-in-law's tattoo looked great! The guy did a really nice job.

I went here to get my lip pierced four years ago and to this day I still recommend people to go here. I have gone back to buy jewelry and have my lip stretched. I've never been here for a tattoo but I have seen the work they do and it's amazing. Everyone here is really friendly and very knowledgeable. The piercers are super friendly and converse with you on a one to one level so you really don't feel like a customer but a friend. They can answer any questions you have regarding piercing and tattooing. They are extremely clean and sterile and take all the proper and legal requirements before any job is done. I love this place and it's a personal favorite among Chicagoians. They have been around for a long time and moved more east on Belmont within the last two years. This new location is clean, nice, and more welcoming. The waiting area is bigger and there is much more wall space to display the work of the tattoo artists.

Not your typcial place. The music was at a great volume, and it wasn't death metal. Not that I don't like that music, but sometimes you want to relax when having ink done. Mike Dalton finished out a tat I had started some time ago, and did some lettering for me. Very quick, and more importantly, almost painless. A good sign of a tattoo artist is not only the artistic side, but the ability to know how deep and hard to push the needle, and he did a great job. I recommend them.

Pros: Great atmosphere, easy going and friendly staff, pricing

Cons: None, unless you want the industrial sized parlor

The communication in this tattoo shop is awful. I stopped by to make an appointment on a Friday afternoon, looked at some portfolios, and decided on Josh. He was tattooing some one else at the time, so the receptionist took my name, phone number, and the pictures I had brought in. She told me she'd have him contact me to make an appointment. After waiting nearly a week (Thursday) I gave the place a call. The guy who answered apologized and told me he'd give Josh the message. I did receive a voice mail while I was in a class the same day from Josh and called back not an hour later. The same receptionist from before answered the phone and took my information again and said she would have him contact me. I called again later, and this time the receptionist was impatient and short with me. She again said she would have him contact me, but I have not received any kind of phone call directly from Josh or from the tattoo shop. It has been two weeks since I first went in and I did not even succeed in making an appointment. I did end up going to Taylor St Tatto, made an appointment the same day I came in, and was able to start my tattoo today. Great job on Taylor St.'s part. Chicago tattoo co., on the other hand, did not take communication with their client seriously and did not give me the impression that they had any sense of urgency when it came to getting an appointment scheduled.

Pros: None, due to the fact that they never gave me the opportunity to see any

Cons: Poor communication

I went here to get my first tattoo after reading the reviews on this site and was incredibly pleased with the results. The receptionist and artists were very helpful when talking to me about the design of my tattoo, the facilities were clean and well-maintained, and I only had about an hour wait before we got started even though it was moderately busy. The artist who worked with me was knowledgeable and informative about the process and what to expect. I went back a week later, this time on a Sunday afternoon, for the second tattoo I wanted, and this time the only wait was for the preparation and stenciling of the design. The design, which I had drawn myself, was much more complicated than the first, and the artist (the same gentleman I had the first time) was able to recreated it perfectly. While I wasn't sure what to expect as far as prices went, it seemed reasonable to me, especially considering the great service I received. From my own experience and my observation of the staff and other customers, it seems like the staff is genuinely concerned with the well-being of their customers and are will talk to you about what will work for you and how to properly care for your tattoo or piercing. I would highly recommend the Chicago Tattooing Company, especially to anyone who, like me, is new to tattoos!

Pros: Service, atmosphere, cleanliness

Cons: Parking (I had no problem finding a spot on a side street, but most streets are permit only after 6 pm)

This place is clean, the artists are friendly and knowledgeable and the price is fair. Josh did a large piece on my chest and it looks fantastic. This place is real find.

I went to the Chicago Tattooing Company for my second tattoo after spending way too much on a small, run-of-the-mill tattoo at the Tattoo Factory. I was beyond pleased with how friendly and helpful both the receptionist and tattoo artist were. I explained what I wanted and the receptionist drew it perfectly for me. This tattoo was larger, more complicated, and more colorful than my first tattoo but cost significantly less. The store was clean, well-lit, and attracted all different types of clients. Highly recommended.

For someone who has only two tattoos, I had a lovely experience at Chicago Tattooing Company. The receptionist didn't treat me with condescension, the artist gave me a break with the price, and in general I experienced nothing but respect. Plan to go back there to get a piercing.

Their slogan ""The Oldest and The Finest"". I have two tattoos and was venturing for my third. I have a good idea on what I wanted but always like to view the walls to check it out. While the staff seemed grossly uninterested in my money (threre were4 others waiting to get tats) this was okay with me. However once I approached the receptionist and stood for at least five minutes I finally get a rude can I help you. IN the most unsurly tone I can imagine she asked what I wanted did I have a picture of it...then she turns to ask the artist if he could do what I asked where I had asked for it..with out even looking at it he said NO it would have to be bigger (more monay for him..) the receptionis then informed me I should think about it and there was a 2 hour wait anyways to come back later. I habe never felt such a negatice attitude in a tatoo /or piercing place and won't ever recommend this place. And if you read this and still consider going think about this...they have a 50 minimum for any piece no matter how simple...I can go elsewhere thank you
