REVIEWS OF Chicago Ink Tattoo & Body Piercing IN Illinois

Barbara Corcoran

Second time there and Rosemary is great 4 private piercings!!! Was hard 2 find a place 2 get them and she is really nice and totally professional!!!

Nahiomy Rodriguez

I recently got my nose pierced here. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. My piercer was Rossmary, she was amazing. She explained everything she was using and made the experience quick and pain free (as possible). Everything was opened in front of me and aftercare was explained thoroughly. Highly recommended this place!

Raul Aldana

This was the best experience ever .Carlos is doing my biomechanical sleeve, and every were i go ,i get complements about my ink .thanks for your professional work carlos 5 stars all the way

Latoyia Runnels

No complaints! Got my nose piercing and it looks nice

Ceejay Alegros

Mercy was awesome to work with! We were originally assigned a different tattoo artist that rubbed us the wrong way, we're glad we asked for someone else and thank God it was Mercy! Her lines were prestine and precise. She did exactly what we wanted, gave her input but ultimately made sure her customers were happy. We were not disappointed at all. I would absolutely recommend her 100%!


A little pricy but great at what they do!

Jason Porter

This tattoo shop is fantastic. It is clean, professional, and the staff are very friendly. My tattoo artist Carlos Cisneros was top notch! He had my design ready to go when I walked through the door and was open for any changes to it. The small details and subtle effects like shadows and lighting that he put in to my tattoo really show off his gift for tattooing. I would recommend anyone to get a tat by him. Much appreciated Chicago Ink team.

Yesenia Moreno

My sister and I walked in for a consult with Mercy, after finding her work on Instagram. She is a very talented artist! Mercy is very professional, sweet, keeps it real and super outgoing. She gave us a very reasonable quote for the work we wanted done and was very quick to respond to our emails after. She was very gentle during our tattoo sessions, and overall made our visits very enjoyable. I recommend her to anyone looking to get any ink done, and will definitely be back to see her soon!

Aria Hayden

Alisha Gonzalez

Oh how I love my tattoo I put one on each eye lid when is this girl and the other one is a rose a rosy skull I put these in my eyes because I got two goldfish named after my two penthouse is that I bought in California

Jenny_ D

Rude staff. Not worth the hassle. *Your reaction is priceless. You do not know what type of treatment you will get until you get there. Proceed with caution, my fellow humans.


I love it there. I got mine industrial piercing done yesterday. Everybody was so nice. I got it done by Rachel, you guys seriously I recommend this place for anybody.

Shawnterra Rogers

Today was my first time coming to a tattoo shop in general and this was absolutely the best experience ever. Rachel did my nose piercing (nostril) and it wasn’t painful at all. It came out super pretty and she did it fast. She also has really great customer service skills. She talked to me a lot and made me extremely comfortable. I will indeed come back here again.

Mary Highes

The "manager" Reuben was very unprofessional and rude.

Aubrie Wild

Mercy is fire

Marimar Ramos

A friend of mine went to get a tattoo a couple months ago and recently went in to see if she could get a touch up because she wasn’t completely satisfied with the art work, she wanted one part to get shaded in a little darker because it didn’t fit in with the rest of the tattoo. Roberto, her tattoo artist, said that the tattoo was good for his standards and said he wouldn’t do a touch up, but if she wanted to add on to the tattoo he would charge her for that. It’s bothersome to see that he cares more about his satisfaction rather than caring for the the satisfaction of a costumer.

IF YOU NEED A NOSE PERICING COME HERE ITS ONLY 30, So I went in needing help to fix my nose piercing, where it was done by KnM Body Art. Within 1 min of looking into my nose they knew I needed a bigger piercing. The lady who fixed it was …

Yahaira Cortez

Staff is nice and place is clean. I went to get a surface piercing but it didn’t come out straight, it was slanted and I still got charged for it unless I took it off, was pretty disappointed.

Jessica Covaci

Super clean and professional!! Mercy was so awesome! She was so fun to talk to while getting work done. She was gentle and even provided numbing spray!! Came through with that!!

Smile. Obsessive

Beautiful, clean work :) great service :)

Deyanira Guzman

i went in for a nose piercing and 3 minutes later i had one so cool.

Zanaida James

I got a VCH piercing. No problems and everyone was friendly. Rosemary explained everything and was very nice. It was over with quicker than I thought thankfully

Maggie Edwards

SUPER AWESOME !! got my nose pierced today by italo, and everything about the experience was incredible. they really do a good job there.


Knowledgeable piercers and friendly staff. Just make sure you park legally (not in Walgreens). You can find parking either on the opposite side or down the street.

Anni Leonard

Brought my 9 year old here for her first ear piercing. The staff are absolutely brilliant. Christina on reception made her feel very comfortable and Eldo was a fantastic piercer who talked her through every step and made her feel so comfortable. Can not recommend highly enough.

Morissa Sahutske

Carlos did an amazing job on my dagger tattoo yesterday! Will be coming back every time we come in for vacation!

Cassy Lovesu

If its your first time there dont park at walgreens theres literally a thirsty guy who waits in his car waiting to boot someone all I went to do was ask were I park and got booted less than 30 secs he was in a red truck with a hat on and yes this has to do with the shop because they should have a parking lot and have signs on the streets of where to park! Thank you Btw why y'all replying to me and not the people who actually didnt like there tattoo haha glad didnt waste my money here

EA Archibald

My mom and I went here for my first tattoo and her fourth. We had appointments with Axe, who was very helpful and created a design for my tattoo that was unique and beautiful. It was a great experience (especially for my first tattoo). The artwork is beautiful and is exactly what I expected of it. I felt comfortable and the shop is very clean. I was never concerned about cleanliness or service. I definitely hope to be back. I highly recommend getting ink here!

fernanda arechiga

Thank you! Carlos for my amazing tattoo!

Amanda Urdiales

I came in with my friend on a busy Friday night and they took us right away! Rosemary was absolutely perfect. I have a low pain tolerance but this was quick! I got my rook pierced and Rosemary was so accommodating. I kept trying to bail out, but she did everything to calm me down. I am so glad I got my piercing done by her! My friend also got another ear piercing and it took a second! Very quick, efficient, honest, and friendly staff. I love his place!

Don’t Trip

Axe was extremely helpful! Had a great experience. Very happy with my ink. Highly recommend Axe. Will be going back for a lot more work!!

Ben Walter

Great experience here. The tattoo turned out very well. Carlos worked with me to get a design that I liked, and he delivered. He also got me in literally the day after I walked in. My only complaint is that Carlos would sometimes walk away for 20-30 minutes to talk to other customers. I understand being busy, but maybe having "office hours" would be better instead of walking away in the middle of tattooing.

Lisette Carrera

Went in for a naval piercing & Italo was amazing! He was very polite, answered every question, was very professional, & made sure everything was marked perfectly before beginning. I 100% recommend Chicago ink!

salvador torres

Professionals. Quality over quantity. Highly recommend their piercing personnel

Anna Garcia

Carlos did my first tattoo. He was so helpful and nice ! I was soo nervous but he took the time to help pick the right size and all the details that came Into my tattoo. I’ve also gotten numerous piercings from there too done by Rachel. She did an awesome job. I love my piercings. Overall experience at Chicago ink was great im definitely coming back. (:

Miriam Dallal

Always had great piercing experiences here! Personally and for my daughter. Knowledgeable employees, caring and patient when answering all our questions, every time.

Essence M.

This place was great! The prices are reasonable and they make sure to treat you with kindness and care. I went to get a piercing adjusted because the end came off. The woman there was so nice and left me feeling happy to have found a place I can return to. For me it's about being able to find a good reliable place that I can frequent when I need to This is exactly what Chicago Ink was for me.

ohgabs -_-

I love my piercing! I plan on coming back for sure! Best piercing place ever!


They literally have the best customer service and they carefully listen to you. Also they make sure that your experience is fun nd memorable

Gwen Tillman

I got a scoop piercing by Rosemary today & she is awesome. This is the place & she is your go to person. She was AMAZING!!!!! I WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK FOR MORE PIERCINGS

Pink Tacooo

The staff is always so nice and welcoming.


VERY EXPENSIVE These ppl charge an 100 dollar tattoo 500. And offensive as you can see by their response lol imagine how rude they can get if you get them on their nerve? I recommend True Blue Tattoo

Roberto Marquina

The best tattoo chop in Chicago

Camille McSpadden

Quick stop into the shop on a Saturday for a nose piercing. Rossmerry was A-MAZ-ING. Quick, virtually painless and very professional. She explained the process as she went along. I would certainly recommend--they were doing some SICK tattoos while I waited. May have to go back for some ink as well!

Cassie Campos

Service was great tattoo came out horrible. Lines are all broken up and different thicknesses the colors arent the same even tho only one shade of blue was used. Waste of $200 since I have to go get it re-done now.

miranda parries

Excellent! I was a walk in and Reuben was great! Going back for the rest of the work that I want.

Nida Kidwai

Very clean and organized. They have a private room for piercings and can make the tattoo booths private as well. They are open late and their piercers are very patient and experienced. I love going here for all my piercings!

Veta Hicks

Went in for daith piercing. She did a great job for my daughter and I. We both suffer from migraines and really hoping for some relief. The place was clean, but did not have a complete sterile feel compared to other parlors I've been to. The staff was all friendly.

Learning Nutrition

I did not like my experience or the art work done on me. The tattoo piece looks nothing like what the artist drew. Ruben, the artist I worked with had no interest in creating art work to complete my arm. He was mainly interested in taking as much time on half my arm. I had two sessions with Ruben - during the second session he asked a follow artist (Nestor) to help him create more art around my arm. Supposedly, they are the two best artists in Chicago that won awards. So I trusted them both! I’m looking for a complete back tattoo, but I won’t be going back to Chicago Ink nor do I recommend working with those two artist. Here the art work done. Be your own judge on their art work. Definitely was not worth $1,100. Session 1:

Jes Sito

I walked in and was helped immediately. Rachel did an industrial piercing on my ear - that was great & extremely reasonably priced. Claudio did a tattoo design that I brought in (by another artist) and absolutely killed it! 10/10 would recommend.

Ashley Kohlman

I got a walk in nose piercing today done by Italo and he was awesome!!!! Didn’t even wait for 5 minutes before I was brought back. He was very professional and managed to make the situation less nerve wracking and more enjoyable. He explained everything he was doing and gave a full run through of aftercare. Will definitely be coming back to Chicago Ink!!!!!

Jonathan Melo

This was my second tattoo done here at Chicago Ink. The first time by Ruben who did an amazing job with my koi fish tattoo and this second time I came in with a friend who I recommended should get it done here. We were both tatted by Mercy who did an awesome job with both our pieces ! Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for quality work done by awesome tattoo artist! Definitely coming back for my next piece!

Rita Brown

Everyone was very nice, I will definitely go back to get a tattoo. Rosemary is great, she did my nose piercing. If I decide to get another piercing, she my goto.

magda magana

Great staff and great experience overall. I had my septum and daith pierced by Rachel and she was great! She is very informative and friendly. The process went by quickly. The location was pretty clean. I would definitely come back and recommend to my friends and family.

Tara Jeschke

Amazing experience for my son’s 18th Birthday!!! Thank you for taking us with short notice, making sure he got the right artist for what he wanted and working with him to make sure everything was perfect for something so permanent! His tattoo far exceeded all of our expectations - he LOVES it!!!

s. corriene

I recently got my ear pierced with Rachel. She is wonderful and did a fantastic job! She is very thourough, detailed , careful, and made the process quick and painless. She is a true artist and cares a lot about her work & clients. It shows! I love my piercing! Thank you Rachel!!!

Alejandra Salgado

I love this shop. Everyone here was super friendly and professional with me. I got my first tattoo by Claudio. He was so nice and very professional, I loved that he took his time with me and made sure I loved the tattoo that I was getting. …

Jordan Kearin

Had an amazing experience here! I came in to get my first ever tattoo, and Carlos did a PHENOMENAL job. His line work is very clean and the tattoo turned out exactly the way I had pictured. I’m in love with it! The entire staff was very accommodating. Rosemary the body piercer pierced my nose the same day as my tattoo and she is such a professional. I went to this place on a whim, and now I will be a long time customer!

James Horn

This Awesome I'm sitting in my room and room service knock at the door here's complimentary drinks Wow this is cool.

claire mullaney

My two friends and I came in for walk-in tattoos and had an amazing experience! They were extremely accomodating, very kind, clean and each of our artists were extremely talented. They made sure we were comfortable all did a really great job. I would highly recommend this location and hope to come back again!

Jessica Chavez-Hernandez

Quick service. They greet you right when you come in. Offer upgrade in jewelry. They give you after care instructions.

Black Bougee

Rossmary did my nose piercing. She was professional friendly and she added to my beauty very wonderful service

alice whatley

I got my eyebrow pierced here by Italo and nipple pierced by Rossmery and felt very taken care of, safe and comfortable.

Astarte Howell

Great customer service! Rachel is an amazing at piercings. She gave me great advice on what would look best with my ear shape and I definitely agree. Plus she was super kind and sweet to both me and my friend who came for moral support. The shop is also very clean and organized. I feel super safe going there and will go there again. If you’re getting anything pierced ask for Rachel!!!

Isabelle Mazurek

I went there around last week to get my nose pierced, the place seemed clean and everything was sterilized. It was a quick and painless process. I would recommend this place to anyone thinking about getting a piercing / tattoo.

Daniel Gregory

There are some really good artists here. Ruben did my tat and I'm very happy with it.

Natalie Callejas

I recommend this place if you want a nose piercing. The process was very fast and they were very professional. They gave me tips on how to take care of it and Rachel did my nose piercing fast. Rachel is the best.

Ayari Simmons

I got a tattoo here from Ruben of a portrait of my daughter on my right arm and after 2 weeks the tattoo completely faded after healing. I do not recommend going here. I came back to see if he could touch up my tattoo and he basically said there is nothing he could do. Looking for a cover up artist who can do portraits. This place sucks.

Theo D

Had a great time here. Received my first tattoo from two very professional artists. I had seen their work from social media and local events so I knew that I would love their work. Libby and Norman were so informative and let me know the best ways to care for my new art. I def recommend checking them out.

Oscar Daniel Luna

First tattoo ever. Staff was nice and location invitates to creativity in different levels. Pedro was an amazing guy since he understood my general idea and he improved it with his ideas. The level of details were impressive. The tattooing experience was smooth considering how Pedro handled me as a first timer. Only the last 15 minutes of the 8-hour session were tough.

Yvette Ramirez

They were very welcoming and professional. I don't know how to spell his name but Niko did musical notes on both sides in the back of my ear, and I loved the outcome of his work. I'll most deffinetly be coming back for more

Lillian Torres

After 10 years of wanting an Octopus tattoo, I finally found the design and pattern I wanted. I'm so glad I walked into Chicago Ink and met with Carlos. You can tell he enjoys his work and is proud of what he creates. People are so impressed when they see my sleeve, and I say thanks, but the credit goes to Carlos at Chicago Ink!! Check out my page on Instagram, debaser555 to see my Octupus sleeve!!

julisa Ocasio

In love with my portrait tattoo by Viktor!! what an amazing artist! Will for sure come back for more work :)

Ramsin Gabriel

Great place, great tattoo. My first tattoo, went with my Daughter as she got her tattoo here also. Great price and I am extremely pleased with my design.

Red Rum

Got my nose pierced here. Very professional and great service.

Lucy Stahl

Mercy took care of me at Chicago Ink Tattoo for my first tattoo and blew it out of the water! Great service, great price, clean, and welcoming environment. 10/10 would recommend!
