Got my first tattoo done here, amazing job! It was done so fast and super clean. The finish was amazing. Super friendly as well. Overral would recommend this shop to everyone.

Stephanie Ivette

If I could give zero stars, I would. My friend got one of his tattoos done here, and I couldn’t be more appalled at the quality of work and customer service this place has to offer. First off, the guy doing the tattoo quoted the wrong price, and was calling my friend expletives when he winced in pain. He also rushed the job, and as a result, the tattoo ended up bleeding outside of the tattoo lines. It looks awful to say the least. If you want a poorly executed tattoo and horrible customer service, I would recommend this place. If you want quality ink and good service, avoid this place at all costs.

I would not recommend this shop for piercings. The way my nose was pierced was entirely wrong. My piercing site ended up with a keloid(big bump) with months of constantly trying to shrink it I finally was able too. I can not put a hoop in due to the way it was pierced and I can barley get the stud in and out. When I do attempt to take the stud out it just bleeds and will not go back in correctly. This has happened to 2 of my other friends as well, they got keloids and an infection in their cartilage piercings even after vigorously cleaning the piercing site. My friend went to a shop that speacializes in only piercings and was told that they had pierced his cartilage incorrectly and that’s why he is getting reoccurring infections. The products there are cheap and the professionalism is low.

If I could give this place ZERO stars I would. This place does NOT know how to give proper piercings. 3 of my friends came to this shop for simple piercings (2 came for a cartilage and 1 went for a nose piercing) they were placed nicely and they knew how to get the customer ready but every single one of their piercings got infected. It's not a coincidence when it happens to 3 of my friends. My friend who got a nose piercing developed a keloid and cleaned it religiously. It is now 5 months later (the recommended wait time to change a nostril piercing is 4 months) and had attempted to change the nose stud to a hoop (which was purchased at this piece of shxt shop) and it DIDN'T FIT. How the h*ll are you going to pierce someone and give them a different size hoop? Also, when nostrils are pierced, they are pierced on an angle and this one was pierced on a crooked angle I noticed while trying to help my friend who was screaming and crying from the PAIN of trying to put a fxcking hoop in. My two other friends got their cartilage pierced and it got infected when they cleaned their new piercings religiously too. when my friend went to a different shop to get a different piercing, dude asked him 'where'd you get this piercing done' (in a disgusted tone) he simply stated 'big head tattoo shop in elgin and dude said 'that explains it' they use cheap jewelry which caused so many problems bc his body was trying to reject it. This place is very nasty and I feel AWFUL for my friends having to be put through this pain. I'm SO thankful I never got anything done at this shop. Absolutely HORRIBLE.

Samantha DiCostanzo

I saw Frank at Bighead Tattoo last December and could not have had a better experience! I had sent him a few ideas of what I wanted before the appointment and he created a custom design for me. This man is talented you guys, I fell in love with the design right away! This was my first tattoo so he was great at explaining everything which helped calm my nerves. I will definitely be back again! Thanks Frank! :)

I highly recommend. Felt welcome, unbelievable pricing and the dude does amazing work. I did not have to look far comparing to the competition.

I got a back piece done here and still a year later It looks great, I would recommend bighead tattoo to anyone looking for a clean quality tattoo.

Tyler Stanford

I got my cartilage pierced here and I’ve had it for over a year and it is constantly getting infected. I’ve read that cartilages have a long healing process but I followed through with the aftercare of this piercing but it never seemed to heal. I Also got a large hard bump on the back of my ear with this piercing that will not seem to go away. When I went to a different shop to get my ears pierced the piercer asked me where I got my cartilage done and when I told him he told me that it “explained everything” he told me that my ear was constantly getting infected because of the cheap jewelry they used and the way it was pierced. I would not recommend coming here as the staff is not professional and the materials they use are not good quality.

Letta Babla

I gave 3 stars only until I get the other half done, had to allow this side to heal. He is tattooing a sleeve.

Brought my daughters for Piercing and loved the attention that was giving to us the moment we walk in. Nothing but excellent service and very professional. I definitely recommend this place. Thanks Andy (nephew) for the referral.


Ziel Smith

Absolutely dreadful experience. He was super rude and insulting the entire time, didn't help with design at all, just copy and (poorly) pasted an image from the internet onto my hand. 0/10. Not an artist.

Demi Reitzel

Clean place with professional, friendly staff and great prices. I will definitely be back.

Jose Gabriel Cruz Vargas

Just got a sick tattoo at Bigheads and is the best tattoo yet. Definitely recommend it. Coming back for my next tattoo for sure. Not only good tattoo but great costumer service. If ur trying to get a tattoo DO NOT HESITATE TO COME HERE!!!

kayla Benitez

When I went to executive ink tattoo they f'd up so bad so I came to big heads for a touch up and he made it look 100 times better. I went back to him to do a huge leg piece and he does an amazing job and is a super cool dude! I see a lot of comments of people saying he's rude but maybe y'all are too sensitive ?? He's just intimidating but he's freaking awesome. Will go back for more tattoos !

Best shop in Illinois

Big head. I recommend him because most of the in and i would say 90% of the ink is done by him, make sure you only get him but his people are trusted if he trust them.

Whitney Warner

Actual Actually

I went in this tattoo shop with my girl friend and the owner of the shop greeted us with a major attitude, All we wanted was a quote on a tattoo. As soon as we walked in, he treated us like garbage and called my girl friend fat as if he was a skinny dude to begin with. I would not recommend this shop to anyone horrible experience.

Keith's Montoya

went in there to get tattoos with my fiancé and they were friendly and did really good work.

Natasha Ellis


I got my first tatoo here tonight. It looks beautiful. I was extremely nervous but the staff was rediculously patient with me. Will be going back again :)

Linda Egner

Great tattoo artist

Caitlin Welch

Marco always does an amazing job on my tattoos and ever since I started going there I’ve gone to him since. I trust his judgment and I know he loves what he does. Also his wife does piercings there and does an amazing job. I defiantly give this business all stars and I recommend checking them out for tattoos/piercings!

BigHead does an amazing job!!! The only person I will go to ever to get my tattoos!!

Thomas Keys

Owner came off extremely rude, and to be honest seems very racist because there was no need for that kind of behavior if I’m willing to spend money here

I have two of my most beautiful pieces done by Big Head. One before he even opened his shop I got a watch with a rose on the left side of my chest. The next year after I got my half a sleeve of a wolf with a moon and stary sky that he drew by hand directly on my skin. Every time I show off my tattoo I get many people come up to me and compliment me on how beautiful it is.

for a nose and ear piercing do we need to buy a stud from there? if yes how much in total

Erin Ugarte

Walked in after a few other bad experiences. They were able to do my tattoo that day and did an incredible job. Thanks a bunch, they really made my day
