REVIEWS OF Dream City Tattoos IN Illinois

I’ve gotten two tattoos done by Leo and I love how they look! All of the artists are super friendly and you can feel a good vibe in the shop! Definitely recommend stopping by!

Edgar Cruz

Karla Avila

Had an amazing cover up done by Carlos "Tito". Took his time to give me exactly what I wanted. He also has a super light hand so made the pain a little more bearable. Every other shop I contacted told me I either need to darken the colors of what I wanted or I had to get laser removal. If you need any work done I definitely recommend Carlos. The shop is also super clean and chill played great music the whole time.

They do very good work

brandon ripka

Went there a while ago got my arms evened out got a holy piston on my right forearm. As soon as I walked in someone was there to help me out. Very friendly people the girl up front hooked me up with the artist Lebster. He was in middle of another tattoo stopped helped me out and got everything organized in minutes. After finishing my tattoo he took a picture shows that the artist are proud of there work. Lebster does great work I got to get in contact with him to help me about a cover up now. Keep up the great work everyone. Definitely telling people about this place.

Great place. I would recommend Pedro to anyone looking to get a tattoo.

Angelina Mustaine

Got my first tattoo done here by Moose. He did a fantastic job. He was clean, friendly, and did great line work on my tattoo. I'm very please with the result I'll for sure come back for more ink in the future.

Geo Cervantes

The staff is really nice and friendly. The music is nice the place is really clean. The customer service though. It is what is really good about the shop. The shop always smells really great. My whole experience was just excellent

B House

Showed up for Friday the 13th tattoo and waited around for 20 minutes in what appeared to be a line and was told that "everyone knows that if you don't sign in before 10pm, you are not getting tattooed." I'm not sure who everyone is, but no one at the shop even directed anyone anywhere and when I called ahead, I was not told that, nor does it mention that anywhere on Facebook or anywhere else. So thank you, no thank you. Zero stars for tattoo not realized. I don't mind waiting hours to get a tattoo, what I mind is not being informed about their haphazard lines and then waiting around to be told "everyone knows". Really? Because waiting in line means I was attempting to sign in.

jeanette castano

My boyfriend got a tattoo there, the shop is really nice clean. Very professional and the staff is super friendly! Definitely recommend going there.

Yosmely Andrade

I got a tattoo done by Victor Luna. I’m very impressed with his work!! I can tell he’s very passionate with what he does and makes sure his clients leave the shop satisfied. Totally recommend him to anyone!

Armando Vega

Jasmine Ramirez

Love that it's not about the money but about the tattoo. Been coming here with my husband. In addition bought my sister in law.

Jr Jr

The first time I came to this shop, I was tattooed by Victor. Highly professional tattoo artist, with an amazing eye for detail, very clean and talks you through your whole tattoo. Would recommend 100 percent.

Gina Salgado

A little nervous going in but Arturo did an amazing job. I will definitely be back in 2weeks.

Raff Signa

I did a walk-in today and got a tattoo on my hand. My artist was Leo and he was super nice to me and gave me a few different options for designs and sizing. Would recommend this shop and can’t wait to come back for more! Note: cash is recommended (Chase is directly next door if you need an ATM) and if you want parking close by park on Neva there aren’t any meters and you won’t get towed!

juan munguia

Cooking with Becky B

Such a beautiful shop, great people, love the environment, great tattoo artists

Steve Gonzalez

Couldn’t a picked a better place to get my first tat.

Cesar Garcia

Had an appointment for a 6 o’clock tattoo. An hour sitting in the lobby and no artist to be found. I won’t name drop him or any of the employees who had nothing to say the whole time I was just sitting there. Very unprofessional. It was a tester tattoo because I have so much more I want to get, and so many people I could’ve recommended this place. Shame. Oh well, on to the next shop.

Stefanie Patsas

LOVE this place! So clean and such a friendly enviroment. Amber does my work and ive never been more content with my tattoos. Everyone is so nice and genuinely loves tattooing. 10/10 will recommend to anyone whos looking for a small or big tattoo.

Maria Conibeer

I first got a tattoo here in May, 2017, and since then, I've been coming back for more. The establishment is clean and modern, the artists are super professional, talented and friendly! If anyone if on the fence about getting a tattoo, they should look no further and come here!! Javier has been my guy, and he's amazing!!! ...But everyone seems to be great here :)

Orfanel Osorio

Best tattoo service ever Carlos Tito Robles if you want a good tattoo thats the guy who you want to go with highly recommended.!!

Veronica Lomax

My favorite tattoo place ever! Everyone there is super nice and accommodating with great prices. You really get your bang for your buck here. I will never go to another tattoo place and Moochie is an awesome artist. Very fun, clean and comfortable environment and I reccomend anyone to get their tattoos here.

Natalia Sujata

Got some tattoos done here by victor. He was such an awesome guy he does amazing work he was very accommodating and understanding he came in on his day off to work on my friends and I. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to get some awesome tattoos done!

Ingrid Saint

My boyfriend and I got tattoos here. Loved them, they heeled great and the guy was super awesome. I have low blood pressure and tend to faint when a needle is involved. He gave me breaks in between so I was fine.

cintia gonzalez

Loved it! Drove 2 hours to get tattooed by Arturo and was not disappointed. We talked before hand and had a price for me, then drew up different sizes of my tattoo and made sure I was comfortable with the size and price before getting started. Very easy going the other artist all seemed to get along which made for a good atmosphere. He made sure I knew he was using a new needle and always asked how I was doing and if I needed a break. I spent about 4-5 hours there and am already planning my next tattoo. This place was recommended to me and I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for their next piece

Tracey Martin

Called ahead and asked if they took walkins and the guy who answered said sure come on in. Very polite. I explained that my wife and I just wanted 2 simple tattoos. When we got there they were all pleasant except the tattoo artist we were given. To say he was arrogant, cocky and almost to the point of rude is a understatement. I have 9 tattoos and my wife has 8. If we were from this area or had our car( took a lift there) we would have walked out. His work was good but damn needs to work on his people skills. We are actually going somewhere else tonight to ge a few more before heading home. Never ever would recommend him on his attitude alone.

solomon tamar

Get your tattoos at great price, they no what there doing.

My 18 year old son wanted to get his first tattoo. I was freaking out because he picked Poseidon and he wanted it on the side of his chest. We visited few different tattoo shops, but when we walked into Dream City Tattoos we were immediately impressed. Owner of the shop, Gonzo, is very personable and professional. He makes people feel comfortable and thoroughly explains things. The tattoo shop atmosphere is fantastic, the artists in the shop and the people who go there are great. They will work with you on what you want and make it look awesome. I highly recommend stopping in to this shop and working with the artists there. The artist that worked with my son was the owner of the shop, and he delivered on all points. He’s an awesome guy, and a REALLY GREAT artist, and my son have a beautiful piece of art on his body that he is very proud and excited to show off. Again, I can't say enough good things about this place. The atmosphere is inviting, the tattoo shop is clean, and the artists are professional and instantly make you feel comfortable and that you are in good hands. Most importantly, the work that they do is fantastic. Bottom line, if you’re on the fence about where to get your tattoo, than this is the place!

Jake Riegler

Went there for most of my work from Miguel and he's a great artist and never makes you feel rushed or uncomfortable. I'll continue to be a loyal customer

Dan Altobelli

Me and my two bros got matching thors hammmers, each one by a different artist, each did an amazing job. Prices were great especially for technical tats, the artist are really friendly and the shop is great looking and just as clean as there lines.

michael Howe-Ebright

Amazing spot.super nice staff and artists

Stephanie Marie

Clean and friendly environment. Artists are funny and respectful. I have had all of my work done here, by several artists - and the customer service is hands down the best you will find in a tattoo shop.

Jen Penge

Gonzo takes great care with his tattoos and clients and makes everyone feel like part of the family. They have very talented artists that can help with whatever design you want. Looking forward to finishing up my back piece next summer.

Antonio Perez

Drove 40 minutes to go to this shop and I was not disappointed Ganzo work is amazing and so is Dream city I recommend this place to everyone looking for a tatoo

I came here on Friday the 13th when they had their special and Victor did my tattoo! It was my first tattoo and he was so nice and talked me through everything and made me feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend coming here and ask for him! Also check his amazing work on Instagram @call_me_moose_20

Ramon Tiscareno

We went to Dream City Tattoos for my wife's microblading whit Stephanie. She's very professional, takes her time to measure and do the line up before start putting the ink. The result was amazing! My wife's eyebrows are symmetrically and perfect!I highly recommend the microblading with Stephanie at Dream City Tattoos

antonio j

Glad i found this place

Dead Pool

Best place to get amzing tats at fair awesome price . only place ill go to

Jorge Castillo

The artist are amateurs, take such a long time to draw up ure tattoo, then 1hr to set up. Want u to pay up in cash. And touch ups... don't bother.. they got ure money already, they don't care to do so.. and the ink they use must be from the dollar store, cause it's only been 3 months and my tattoo is already fading. By the way.. customer service sucks too. Go any where else... any where... but here. U could only dream!! of having a nice, decent tatto..leaving "dream city tattoos "

Javier Becerra jr

Krzysztof Koziel

Robert Snyder

Always great service when I come to this shop, no waiting, no games, just artists doing their work. Thank you for the great tats and memories that come with it

Elvia Aviles

J Perez

Don't spend your money nor time here, they will rip you off. i have ran into several people who encountered the same issue. They will force you to pay in full, yet never follow up for the following sessions. The "owner,boss/supervisor" is never present and will never answer the phone. Yet BBB and Lisa Madigan have been attempting, they will forever avoid.

Mael B

Great services! My artist was very patient and chill. I got my tattoo there about a month and half ago but I always forget to write reviews.

Dakota Eisenhauer

was told 360$ then the artist said he had to leave .an other artist said thats a 600$ peice .but we agreed on 400 an the work was amazing.

Jessica B.

I saw a well-done tattoo and found out about this place. The place is easy to find, clean inside, prices reasonable. Ricky greeted and assisted me almost immediately after I walked in. I can be horribly indecesive but he was very patient while I picked out fonts. The final product is exactly my vision- super neat, perfect size and placement is spot on. I love it!! I already have 2 more people that want him to do pieces for them and I'm definitely going back to get more tattoos as well!! Thanks Ricky! Update: Back here again with my friend two weeks after getting mine done and Ricky has delivered once again!! Check him out- does such great work and his customer service is on point!!

David Soto

Louis!! Exceeds expectations every time he designs and finishes a tat. I've gotten three consecutive pieces that continue to amaze anyone that sees them. If you're looking for high quality ink at a great price he's the one to see.

Leo Ferg

Delilah Santiago

Had no complaints. Arturo tattooed me and he did a great job. Will definitely go back and recommend him.

Manuel Colón

Super professional and skilled artists here. I suggest going with Julio. He'll work from idea consultation and full through. I went with a friend and were both more than satisfied.

Cory Czuk

I had a horrible experience with Eric. He calls himself scriptinator. I made an appointment a month in advance and paid a deposit. I get there at 3pm just like I said I would and he doesn’t show up. No call and no text. I find out soon after that he’s at his house doing another tattoo and wanted to pawn me off to another tattoo artist. Very unprofessional. I finally get in touch with him and he said since I didn’t get ahold of him the day of he didn’t think I was still coming. Isn’t that what a deposit is for? Long story short he never showed up. Basically stole my deposit to do another tattoo. Never refunded me either. Thought I was hiring a professional tattoo artist but that was not the case. Seemed more like a con artist. So learn from me and do your research.

Christina Soto

I exclusively get my work done by Luis. He is super talented and very professional. I refer all of my friends and family to him and he never disappoints!!

Josh Reigle

Very welcoming and relaxing atmostphere everyone was real cool and they did great work on our tattoos.

Brit Williams

Very professional as soon as I walk in all the way until I left out..the artist name Manny was super awesome and made me feel comfortable about the whole session. I will highly recommend and I will be back. Im glad I went to this shop.

Evelyn Antolino

Keoaeka Cager

Great place fun friendly and professional

Alex Burton

David Jimenez

Smells! Like weed in there , dont have a problem with weed smokers but dont want my artist under the influence of anything, many tatoo shops want a sober customer so expect the same of my artist.

chi- town hitta

Yes yes yes good work

Gabriela Gryc

The workers were super friendly and chill! Got my nose pierced for a good deal and my piercer was very kind and gentle. Definitely going back if I need something pierced or tattooed.

Dr Sherese Brigham


Milagros Lopez

I've gotten both tattoos and quite a few piercings here. All with Moochie. I wouldn't switch to anyone else. She's professional and so outgoing. Moochie accommodates your needs and always has a smile on her. Her prices are spectacular. She made my experiences here go smoothly. Have nothing but good things to say about her and this place. Thank you Moochie!!!!!!!

Desire Sosa

This is hands down the best experience I've ever had at a tattoo shop. Everyone, and I mean everyone, in the shop has nothing but good vibes.

Came here to get my first ever tattoo done by Victor. He did absolutely fantastic and I couldn't be happier with it.

Alexis Salgado

I went in with Arturo for my first session this weekend, the next session will be in a few weeks. I am beyond pleased with the results, and I would highly recommend Arturo as an artist. He was very helpful throughout the whole process, and very professional throughout. Would definitely recommend!

Jonathan Bosas

Great overall experience! The shop is very clean and it's a fun and professional environment. I worked with Gonzo on a half sleeve Tribal Polynesian. He is very creative, passionate and precise with his work. Highly recommended!

Lori Mingey

I was referred to this place by Gonzo the owner and I wanted something with unique writing so he referred me to his lettering guy Manny. Great music while I was getting my tattoo. Everyone very friendly and professional. I came in with a picture of something I wanted tattooed. It was very plain but with the vision of my artist Manny he was able to create a one of kind, custom, masterpiece just for me. I’m super happy with my tattoo. I will be going there again in the future and you all should too!!

Mireya Coriano

Everyone is very professional. Very clean and well organized. Great tattoos and artists. Highly recommend!


About a few month ago I walked into the shop and spoke to Miguel about getting a cover up of a tattoo I seriously regretted. Today i went in for my cover up and I will say I FELL IN LOVE with the cover up. Miguel kept asking if I was okay. Best experience ever

Dino Ildefonso

Manny Perez

Gabe was fantastic in making sure my Polynesian sleeve was filled in completely! Like I’ve said in previous reviews, this place has amazing talent and an amazing owner! Gonzo has really made sure these guys handle everyone in a professional yet friendly manner!

Dianne Quiba

Went back for another tattoo with Arturo Barrera and once again exceeded my expectations! Arturo is a great artist, very precise with all his work. I’m very happy with both tattoos that I’ve gotten from him and will definitely go back again! Thanks Arturo and Dream City!

Tim Brosch

Great staff, I could do without the rap music.

Jasmin Lopez

Over priced


Karlton Watkins

Visit amber she's the best

Jayaraj Narayanan

Worst Service. Doesn't care for customers than inviting them with banners. Walked in seeing their big banner "Tattoo & Piercing". Turned away saying they don't Pierce till further notice. Approach to customer extremely bad.

jake brauneker

Nicolás Sarute

Amazing art done by Miguel


I got a tattoo from Arturo of a lotus. It came out really nice and healed well. The overall vibe of the place is cool and I enjoyed my time getting tattooed. Will definitely go back again.

Kira Felde

Hit up my boy Victor Luna for some really clean work. He did some lettering for me on my chest and it turned out just the way I wanted it to! Really great tattoo shop overall.

Michael Steele

the ideal tattoo experience. SAME DAY SERVICE, with a smile and a great price. SUPER clean, great job on the tattoo. Highly recommend

Gerald Ramirez

Everyone is friendly and great artist

Wanda C

Very happy with my tattoo! But what set them apart was the customer service. Friendly counter/apprentice and Lebster was very attentive to detail and came up with a great one of a kind design.

K Swa

Always good customer service with my experiences. Grab somebody your comfortable with and they can be your own personal Tatto artist. I enjoy it here.

Juana Ramos

Miguel was super nice and friendly and took his time. I really love how my tattoo turned out

rudy Lopez Jr

Very nice people and good artist my cousin Victor is truly an artist and loves what he does if you ever think of stopping by here make sure to check Victor out you wont regret it!

Joelisa Wilson

Came from Forest Park passing up 5 different shops because I heard they were good. Nope, a lie. As soon as I walked up (mind you it's only 12:55am), they're talking and tell me they're closed. Really??? I thought it was supposed to close at 2:00am, the main reason I came this far was because of the time they stayed open and then I tried to call ahead but didn't get an answer. Didn't even step in the place and was beyond annoyed at their service. What a waste of my Time and Gas. I guess I'll just go to Ageless Arts on North Avenue instead, they do great work anyway.

Juan Carlos


Ramiro Guerrero

I got my tattoo done by Carlos Tito Robles And I couldn’t be any happier. He is really easy to talk to and very communicate with you about your tattoo.
