REVIEWS OF Freedom Ink Tattoos IN Illinois

Crystal Montgomery

Tim did a terrific job describing the procedure and cost. The shop and even the bathroom was spotless :) My experience was friendly and professional and my tattoo is perfect! I highly recommend this shop and will return soon. Thanks Tim!

Jeff Pickard

Tim Beck is the man. I won't go too anyone else does beautiful work and fast. He's the best around I highly recommend this shop all the artists are amazing. Don't waste your time going anywhere else!!!

Travis Miller

I have had 4 tattoos done at Freedom Ink. Three of mine are with Tim Beck and the other with Jeremy. My wife has had 4 done there with Zach Dole. We love the quality, the experience, and the professionalism. Each time I have come to Tim with a rough concept in my head, he has taken that idea and made it much better than I had envisioned. He has a knack for developing a tattoo concept for the area and the environment. He knows what works and what doesn't. He's not afraid to tell you what won't work, which I appreciate because who wants something that just doesn't look right. When you are putting something on your body for life, trust in the artist is important. We definitely have that trust in Tim and the guys! We are committed long time clients. We also love the vibe of the shop. Not a pretentious tough guy tattoo shop with skulls and evil clowns everywhere. Just awesome tattoo work done by very approachable, cool, respectful, talented people. The way it should be.

Amy Funk

Look no further. I spent weeks & weeks searching tattoo establishments. Let me save you some work: just pick this one. : ) I gave Tim Beck an idea and he turned into something seriously magical. For me, tattoos are significant markings for major life transitions. I spend a lot of time thinking about the tattoo meaning. Tim is great artist who understands a proper layout for a tattoo. Every element "fits" and matches the intent of the tattoo. This shop meets my criteria for serious attention to safety precautions. The atmosphere says it all: crazy clean and professional, with a fun, creative vibe. I love the incorporation of tattoo history-classy!

Kelton Heathcoat

A outstanding place, so clean! I had a awesome experience for my first tattoo! Tim is spectacular at what he does! He sure has amazing gift at tattooing!! I would recommend anyone at Freedom ink and everyone there is so friendly!!!

Logan Mooneyham

A little expensive but do great work! Would recomend.

Virginia Bruketta

The best work I’ve seen! Great friendly staff and very clean! Have gotten several tattoos from here and will continue to go back!

Erin Blucker

This was my first tattoo and I wanted to go somewhere that was clean and comfortable. I had heard that Freedom Ink was a great place from several people, and they were right. The staff and artist that I had were very professional, competent, and put me at ease. And they did a beautiful job! I plan to go back and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone!

Jenny Tye

Great artists, clean shop, did a fantastic job with my very nervous daughter!

Brian Cagle

Very professional traditional tattoo shop. Had my Memorial tattoo created and inked by Jeremy and it came out better than I could have ever hoped. Will definitely be going back.

Emily Rogers

Very clean but extremely overpriced. My small simple piece no bigger than a baseball took 3 hours. The guy dug way too deep into my skin and it got infected and was still painful to the slightest touch a week later. Lost lots of ink due to scarring. I will never go back. $300 down the drain...

Riley Donald

Zach Dole has done 2 tattoos on my left arm & each has turned out better than I ever imagined when seeing him design them. Incredible artist all around. Worth every single penny to go here & will only go here for the rest of mine. Unbelievably clean & professional looking shop. Not a bad word to say about these guys!

Scott Neuweg

I've gotten tattooed twice by Tim Beck and both times were awesome. Very clean, very professional, and super talented work. Tim and his crew care about their craft and it shows. I wouldn't hesitate to get another tattoo there by Tim or any of the other artists there!

Tonia Royer

Clean and sterile! They seem to really care about their quality of work and making sure you will be satisfied when they are done. Jason did my tattoo and he was awesome to chat with. And I couldn't be happier with my new art! Thank you everyone at freedom ink for the great experience!

Erin Doyle

My friend and I had an amazing experience! They were all super friendly and very helpful. The place was clean and super cool. My artist was Tim, he finished my tattoo in 15 min and I felt no pain. His artwork is amazing too! My friend had Travis, he was also super nice and the elephant he drew was perfect! We are very happy with our experience and would definitely refer all of our friends here(: Thank you so much for a great first experience!

Lisa Granter

Thank you Parker for another amazing piece of art done! I wouldn’t go anywhere else if you want quality, cleanliness, friendliness, and just some awesome artists doing their thing to make your ink come to life!!

From conception to completion. Great experience. Can’t wait for the next one.

Madison Maloof

Came in for my first tattoo a few months ago and was completely astounded by the outcome. I was tattooed by Jeremy, and he did a phenomenal job. In addition, the customer service was absolutely wonderful. Jeremy was professional, honest, and very kind toward me. I can tell that he and all of the other artists at this shop are passionate and confident about their work. I will be returning for another tattoo in the near future, and I simply cannot wait. Props to Tim, Jeremy, and Zach for representing a beautiful form of artwork.

Mandi Ballard

If your looking for a clean, experienced tattoo shop this is it! Everyone I talked to at the shop was friendly & professional. Tim Beck just did a phenomenal piece of art on my back & I couldn't be happier with how it turned out! He took a picture I brought in and made it into a original piece for me! If your looking for a truly talented tattoo shop in Peoria I'd suggest visiting Freedom Ink! They provide detailed after care instructions & are easy to get a hold of if you have any questions! I've had people who aren't even fond of tattoo's comment how nice the work is!

Erin Thomas

Drove 2 hours to see Tim Beck for my first tattoo. He was recommended by some friends and was absolutely worth the trip. Before I made the appointment, Tim took the time to explain his style vs. other tattoo styles and how tattoo art differs from art on paper. For someone like me, that kind of dialogue is critical. It shows how much he cares about his craft and about his patrons. And it is important to understand that something that looks good on paper doesn't always translate well on skin. If it's not going to look good, he's going to tell you up front. When I got there, the place was classy and spotless with a really great vibe. He took a general idea I had and turned it into something truly amazing in short order. Very laid back, cool staff that knows their stuff and are really dedicated to the tradition. I will definitely be back for more. I highly recommend Tim and his staff to anyone looking for a classic, classy piece. Thanks, Tim!!

Dale True Jr.

The team at Freedom Ink are all aces. Tim Beck just finished my first tattoo and the experience was tip-top from the moment I walked through the door. Great atmosphere, and wonderful individuals. Tim's a craftsman. So happy to now say I have a piece of his art. Thank you Tim.

Dana Belcher

1st tattoo. Tim did a fantastic job and it was a great experience. For someone who never thought she would get a tattoo and then did, I am very happy I went to Freedom Ink!

Kim Fogle

I’ve had two coverups done and both have turned out Amazing! This is by far the Best tattoo facility! Love the friendly staff!!!

Kristin Cline

Freedom Ink has a super clean and welcoming environment! My tattoo turned out amazing and better than I imagined. Tim Beck is the best at what he does!


Extremely clean environment. Staff was very helpful and respectful. Artists do excellent work and have a passion for each customer. Best shop in all of the Peoria area. Would recommend 10/10.

Rachel Schmidgall

Only place I’ll go for a tattoo. Very clean, comfortable and professional.

Brooks Biggs

Freedom Ink is absolutely phenomenal!! All the artists, Tim, Zach and Jeremy do GREAT work!! I personally have got 2 sleeves from Tim and his work is ridiculous!! I have seen numerous pieces done by Zach and Jeremy and their work is phenomenal as well. These guys are extremely polite, professional and helpful. They are all creative geniuses and the work is SECOND TO NONE!! If you are looking to get work done, THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO!! If I could give them 10 stars I would!!

bryan pilato

Words are not enough to describe this shop, it’s artists, and the atmosphere. Very clean! Jeremy worked me in as a walk-in and I couldn’t be happier with his pleasant attitude and professionalism. Meeting the legendary Tim Beck was a huge coincidence in my case as I picked this shop because they could fit me in. Now the weird part.....I’ve followed Blue October since Argue with a tree album came out and certainly know Tim Beck tattoos thanks to the band. Once two and two were put together I was elated to be in this shop for more obvious reasons. I’ve debated for 3 years the classic heart that Justin Furstenfeld has on his neck and now I’m in the shop getting a completely different tattoo. With that being said my wait will be over in two weeks as I would be honored to have this shop put that on me. Tim, thanks for taking time to converse with me (the autographed flash poster will be framed). Jeremy your work today was awesome and in two weeks you can do it again I recommend this shop NOT because of Blue October. That is a personal preference of mine. I recommend it because these guys are spectacular artists both flash and custom, easy to talk to, and detail oriented. Thanks again Freedom Ink, Tim and Jeremy.

Sarah Eckert

My husband and I got our tattoos done by Tim and he was awesome! His work is really amazing! Everyone took the time to help us out and get exactly what we wanted. Offered us refreshments while we waited our turn. We are now life long customers and will return soon! Will highly recommend this place to everyone for tattoos!!

Rebecca Klump

This was my first tattoo at Freedom Ink and it was great. It’s a good and clean atmosphere. Tim did an awesome job on my tattoo so I will definitely be back in the future!

ryan hand

I have no regrets going here for my tattoo. They were able to get me an appointment quickly and in the same week as my first visit. The artist was professional and did everything he could to make me comfortable. The only issue was they decided to do some work on the wall or something while I was there. It was very loud and annoying. Didn't seem very professional to me but it didn't affect the quality of my tattoo.

Kylee Greenburg

I love coming here for my tattoos. I have three and all of them have been done at Freedom Ink and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Both of my parents have also started going in and getting tattoos there as well!

Skyler Frisby

They were super unprofessional. Never tried to talk to us about what we wanted. They asked for a picture of something similar and walked away didn't let us have a say in anything. And super overpriced. And when we decide we weren't getting the tattoo from them the lady was super sarcastic and rude when we left. They may do good work but how you treat the what is what gets you customers.

Michelle Rose

I'm beyond thrilled with this! Tim Beck is an exceptional artist. He is incredibly professional and his kind demeanor put me at ease. All employees were extremely kind and helpful, and the shop itself is immaculate and upscale!

Nicole Gauwitz

I've gotten 2 tattoos at Freedom Ink in the last 2 months and couldn't be happier with the experience. The facility is beautiful, spacious and very clean! My first tattoo was done by Jeremy Armstrong and the second by Tim Beck. Both pieces look great and I would highly recommend them to anyone in the market for a tattoo. Check them definitely will not be disappointed!

Caitlin Rosendorn

Tim and the staff at Freedom Ink were excellent! They upheld a professional atmosphere while still making sure you are comfortable. I am in love with my tattoo and grateful that I went there for it. I fully recommend Freedom Ink, whether you’re going for your first tattoo or your 23rd.

Kim A

Just had my 5th tattoo done today by Tim Beck at Freedom Ink. Gave Tim some ideas of what I wanted, he added to it and it turned out Fantastic!! Highly recommend Tim. Great shop, great staff, and always professional. Thanks so much!

Josh Hudson

I had decided on a particular tattoo several weeks ago, and after asking advice from friends, they recommended Tim Beck at Freedom Ink. It was admittedly a very difficult skill level tattoo, and I was willing to pay more to have someone who could do it right. Tim was the perfect guy for the job! The tattoo couldn't have turned out better. This was my second tattoo at Freedom Ink (Zach did the other one and it's awesome as well). This is the only place I'll go for tattoos. The guys are professional, helpful, and the place is as clean as it gets. Id recommend them to anyone!

Jason Wilkey

I have gotten 3 pieces done here and all of them are fantastic!! Clean, professional, and talented! I will be back for more!

Andy Grabenstetter

Best tattoo shop in Peoria! My wife and I have been there many times and will continue to give them our business! Tim runs a great shop where they have excellent and friendly customer service, a very clean and sanitary environment, that is located right in the historic warehouse district of Peoria. I would recommend Freedom Ink to anyone asking for the right place to get a tattoo.

Matt Fuelberth

I have known Tim for more than 20 years. He and his team are the only people I would trust doing art work on me. Jeremy did an awesome job for my wife, Laurie!!!

Kevin Henderson

The shop has a cool vibe with its industrial decor. Super clean shop and friendly staff. Can’t say enough great things about Tim Beck. Professional, talented as hell and a super nice guy. This is my second tattoo from Tim and I will definitely be going back.

Rudy Tucker

This was honestly the best work I have ever gotten done. Tim worked with me to give me what I absolutely wanted. Definitely the most professional shop I have been in. 10/10 recommend

Vincent Klopfenstein

One of the best in the biz. A truly world class tattoo shop, Central Illinois doesn't know how good it's got it. Unless you are a regular, then you are well aware. Happy to call these folks friends. You won't leave disappointed, you'll walk away with a magazine feature level tattoo!

Rolinda Baty

Zach Dole did my tattoo about 2 weeks ago. I'm all healed up now and LOVE it. He was super patient and open to my design ideas and requests and worked very hard to draw things just right. The shop is ultra clean, professional and the owner shows obvious pride. Thank you again Zach...get compliments daily on your work...and I tell everyone who asks exactly what I think and why they should come see you.

Janna McGiles

Freedom Ink is "the place" to go for phenomenal tattoos. Just got the most amazing tattoo done by Zach today. I am so happy with the work he did. Very professional and super clean place. I will definitely be back to see him again. If you are thinking about getting a awesome high quality tattoo this is the place to go. These guys do such great work. Can't wait to see Zach again.

Brandon Mason

This place is awesome! I wanted a tattoo of my daughters name and what Tim drew up was beautiful. The color, size, and shading was perfect. If you want a great tattoo done right, I highly recommend Freedom Ink. Also, the shop as a whole is a very clean, comfortable, and welcoming environment. Thanks again Tim, I will definitely be back.


First of all I have no words to describe how great the shop is and the artists over there are. Tim Beck is one of the best tattoo artist i have ever encountered with, he is very very good at his work and got me exactly what i wanted. I only had a rough picture in my mind of what i exactly wanted and i just told these guys, Tim came up with the best of it. I recently got my 2nd tattoo from them and would be getting more in future.The only place i would ever get tattooed is FREEDOM INK. I highly, highly recommend this place. Simply they are the BEST. Thank you once again Tim!!

Shawn Adams

Having finally reached a point in my life as to where I don't care what other people think, I, at age 46, got my first tattoo here, and it has since lead to 3 more! Jeremy has done each one, and his work is absolutely amazing. Each time, I came in with an idea for each, and he was very patient, provided his artistic input, and came up with original and fantastic tattoos designs. The shop itself is pleasant, extremely clean, and the artists are utterly professional. I am totally looking forward to returning to Jeremy for my next tattoo -- I wouldn't go to anywhere or to anyone else. Kudos to Freedom Ink!!!

Kristin Campbell

Awesome shop! I got a tattoo here today and couldn't be more happier with the results. The shop is very clean and everyone was very friendly. I will definitely be back.

Caleb Daniels

Got 2 tattoos on February 17th. They turned out great as always! This was my 3rd time getting tattooed there. Would definitely recommend. Hope to make it back to the shop soon for more work!.

Chris Ferrantino

I was tattooed by Tim Beck in July. The shop is amazing. It’s clean, there’s a lot of cool original artwork and it’s in a beautiful area of Peoria right by the river. Tim is very nice and professional. He’s a great artist who is good at every style of tattoo. I would recommend him to anyone for any style of tattoo. He absolutely killed my Jumpman embroidery style tattoo! Well worth the trip if you are from Chicago or the suburbs or anywhere in the world for that matter! Top notch tattoos are made at Freedom Ink

Tristin Welch

Awesome shop along with an awesome first experience! Well worth the 2 and half hour drive and money! Thanks for the Awesome first tattoo experience Tim Beck (and Tess)!

Jeffrey Bakken

Very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely a very clean and professional environment. Would highly recommend.

Mandy Mooberry

I was there Thursday March 30th for a partial sleeve. It was my first tattoo from Freedom Ink and I could not be happier with everything! Jeremy's artwork is beautiful, the place is clean and everyone working was nice, friendly and professional! First time anyone as ever called the next day to see how my new ink is doing; which I thought was awesome.

Dom Comfort

The shop has an amazing atmosphere with a friendly staff and very skilled artists. I will absolutely be back.

jamie cioni

I can't say enough how wonderful this shop is! I am over the moon for how beautiful my tattoo turned out! Worth every penny!

Stefanie Hays

I called ahead, became a walk-in. Wanted a small wrist tattoo. Turned out perfect, and I have officially found my home base for any future tattoos. Thank you @jasonparkertattoo for the clean, professional, perfect work. I’ll be back!


Excellent place, clean shop. Jason did my cancer constellation tattoo, it turned out amazing and I’d love to go back again

Ashley Urish

Tim Beck did a fabulous job. He drew up exactly what I wanted and it turned out even better than I imagined! The shop was very clean and everyone was polite and professional. I'll be recommending them to anyone looking for an excellent experience and won't be going anywhere else in the future.

Addison Ahart

What a great new location for this wonderful staff. Just got done receiving a portrait by Tim Beck and turned out better than the actual picture. Very clean and lit place. If your anywhere near the Peoria area and want ink your crazy if Freedom Ink isn't your number 1 choice.

Rachel Seelye

Tim is amazing! Only place I’m going to from here on out! Everyone was so welcoming. I’m looking to head back in for some for ink therapy!

Brett Gosteli

Jason Parker is a fantastic artist. Tess, the office manager is super friendly, too. You definitely get what you pay for here. Award winning artists.

Steve White

Tim far exceeded my expectations. Friendly service, smooth lines, and a great atmosphere! What more can you ask for. Completely satisfied!

Whitney Breweur

Extremely friendly staff that does great work! They make sure to take the time to help you design something you will love. Simply the best.

Dave Carroll

It was my first time getting a tattoo. Tim made me feel very comfortable. He is an incredible artist that does amazing work. I couldn't be happier.

Rosie Tonsor

Cool shop. Got one done last week by Jeremy and it turned out amazing! I absolutely love it and I have gotten so many compliments. I would definitely go back!

Justin Duncan

Cool guys without the cool guy attitudes. Every dealing I've had with these folks have been professional and I've been more than happy with the results thereof, thanks again guys you got a great shop!

Megan G

Freedom Ink is one of the best shops I’ve ever been in. Super clean, top notch friendly staff, great atmosphere. I drive 2 hours south to get tattooed by Tim Beck and I know every other artist there is just as talented. Make this your first choice for a tattoo in Peoria, you won’t be disappointed.

John Reed III

First tattoo and couldn’t be happier. Asked Tim to do a pretty tough piece and he nailed it. Very cool, relaxed environment that’s also very clean. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Amazing work and can’t wait to go back!

Emi Ragan

I have been tattooed here several times and have had nothing but great experiences! The artists here are passionate about tattooing, and are fantastic artists. They are super nice too. Also watch for their guest artists to come in town - they always do great work as well. If you are looking for a quality tattoo done by professionals in a clean environment, freedom ink is the place to go!

Douglas Ford

Professionalism at the highest of quality - right here in Peoria, IL. Tim Beck's Freedom Ink is a legitimate tattoo parlor; run by professional artists who care deeply about cleanliness, client satisfaction, maintaining a relaxed atmosphere, and the quality of their craft - ART. I've been to Freedom Ink for most of my many tattoos, and I always leave feeling as if my expectations have been exceeded. Tim, Zach, Jeremy, and many of the best guest artists around have always been extremely insightful in helping turn my crazy ideas into outstanding tattoos. Though the theme of the shop tends to lean toward the "traditional" style of tattoos, these artists have never been afraid to wander outside of the box to tackle a custom idea. Sometimes certain ideas won't work well as tattoos; if this happens to be the case, these guys are able to provide the best suggestions to make your idea look/work best around the curves of your body. I could go on, but perhaps you should allow the work to speak for itself. Visit Freedom Ink in Peoria, IL for the highest quality tattoos around - see you there. -Douglas S. Ford


I decided to get my first tattoo here because I liked Tim's portfolio. I have zero complains about my new tattoo, I absolutely love it and the line work is pretty much perfect. However, the experience was awful. For 15 minutes of work @ 300$ I was expecting for my 15 minutes to be only mine. I got this tattoo to help heal and honor past wounds and I was in a meditative healing state and he had his next appointment chatting with him about her tattoo, interrupting my time and worst of all I was feeling her spit on my back and it was gross. Unfortunately this chat about the next client's tattoo went on the entire time. I basically know what his next client's tattoo is. The front desk girl was also in and out interrupting, but at least she was not standing over me and spitting while talking. But he did not let my sister sit with me. I guess it's ok when the next client will also be paying 300$ or more for her tattoo. That is poor customer service and complete disregard towards the person's reason (s) for getting a tattoo.

Brad Noble

I have had 4 tattoos done by Tim. He is a true artist and would not consider going to anyone else. If you aren't sure exactly what you want, all you have to do is give him a small piece of what you are thinking and he can totally run with …

Julie Atteberry

I got a tattoo from Tim about 12 years ago, and the work is SO good I sought him out now to let him know! He did an armband a few inches above my wrist, helping me turn a little doodle into a work of art. My band has some intricate lines …

Jim Voller

I went in to Freedom Ink today with my wife who has had a few tattoos. This was only my second tattoo and I had grand ideas with size, but the tattoo itself, I only had a basic concept with the meaning I wanted it to portray. It took very little time for Tim Beck to understand what I wanted and then to give me something so far beyond my expectations while still capturing the meaning I wanted to portray. This is the difference between someone that just tattoos and a true artist. The quality of work, the level of detail, the cleanliness of the shop. There aren't enough stars to portray the quality of this place and the artistry of Tim Beck. I will recommend him and his shop to anyone looking for some body art.

Candace Cook

First time at Freedom Ink tonight! Jeremy did an amazing job. Took my idea, changed it up a little and made it awesome! Very clean, friendly and comfortable atmosphere! I will definitely be back!

JD McQueen

You get what you pay for....Tim Beck had a great attitude and runs a great shop.


I've only gotten work done by Jeremy, but I'm up to I think 11 tattoos now. Each artist here is great. Through my time spent in Jeremy's chair, I've seen work be done by both Zach and Tim. I wouldn't go anywhere else, and I certainly wouldn't put as much trust into anyone else. Sometimes I go in having no idea what I will leave with that day, but I have loved every piece of art that was drawn to be put on me. Tattoos are a lifetime, people have to remember that with their increasing popularity, so people should be sure they are going to someone that is skilled and great at what they do.

Mike Comiskey

Had my first tattoo done here and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Showed Tim a picture of a design I liked and told him to do his thing with it. He drew up a design and it turned out better than I imagined. 100% times better than the original picture I brought in. Shop was clean and had a cool vibe. Highly recommend them.

Frank Gebeck

Tim Beck recently hooked me up with a neck tat and it's the cleanest one I've ever gotten. The man also free handed it which speaks volumes to me! Voted best tattoo artist in Peoria for a reason!!

Amy Wilson

I am so pleased with my experience at Freedom Ink! Zach did an amazing job, he truly captured my vision. The shop is clean and everything is single use. I will definitely be going back for my next tattoo. Thank you Freedom Ink.

Greg Heft

This is my 3rd tattoo at Freedom Ink. Everytime has been an excellent experience. The entire staff is awesome, all 3 of my tattoos have been with Tim Beck. He will listen to what you are wanting and then will help guide you to the best possible tattoo. Tim works very efficiently, all my tats are a good size and have taken no time at all. Definitely recommend checking their shop out.

william schwader

William Schwader reviewed Freedom Ink Tattoo Co. — 5 star Yesterday at 1:08pm · Jeremy and the guys at Freedom Ink are awesome! They helped me turn the idea I had for a tat, into a reality I will cherish for the rest of my life! The place is spotless, and the guys do amazing work! Im a customer for life! Thanks again Jeremy!

Ryan D

If you are gonna get a tattoo, this is the place. You cant get any better than Tim Beck.

Charlotte Holsten

Just got my first real "visible" tattoo from Tim Beck. I went in with several examples of the look I was going for but hadn't really found exactly what I wanted; I merely had an idea in my head. I explained to Tim what I was looking for - he disappeared and minutes later came back with a drawing of what I had imagined all along. Amazing! A beautiful vintage rose chosen out of an old botanical print book. He suggested the colors and I went with it - trusted him completely. It turned out perfect - wonderfully detailed, fine lines, gorgeous color. Exactly what I wanted. I'll love it for years to come. Thank you Tim - I'll be back.....

Ben Pope

Super nice people and all that but a small had tattoo was going to be 350 bucks. Going back to American inkwell.

Ben Van Wyhe

I contacted the shop regarding a sleeve I want to get done. I got connected with Jason Parker to do the first (of many) tattoo for my sleeve. It’s one I have been wanting a long time and I was a bit nervous. I asked a lot of questions and they were happy to answer them. The day of my tattoo I felt at ease. The shop is pretty awesome and everyone was super friendly. The artists all had a familial feel and it was an overall great experience. Jason did an excellent job on my tattoo. It was better than what I had imagined and I am looking forward to booking many more appointments with Jason at Freedom Ink. I highly recommend any of the artists here!!

allen boggs

Tremendous experience!! I highly recommend Freedom Ink for all your Tattoo needs in central Illinois. I came in with a tribal tat from 2013 from the shoulder to the elbow that was quoted at $1,000 and took 7 and 1/2 hours at another parlor in Peoria. I decided to complete this tat from the elbow to the wrist on both side of my forearm expecting the same price and time. To my surprise it was $500 and it was finished in less than 3 hours. Freedom Ink has a great atmosphere in the warehouse district and when taken back for my tat, I felt like I was in a clinic. Very clean and professional!! The only place I would ever go in the future will be Freedom Ink. The staff was very friendly and Tim the owner told me to come back 10 days after to see if my tat was healing properly or need touched up....WOW!!! Special shout out the the artist Zach Dole (Mad Skills) my friend....

J Lee

I've been waiting 16 years to find the right tattoo artist. I have 17 pieces and the last one until now was done in 1996. Jeremy Armstrong did some amazing work for me and I am hooked on the ink once again. I highly recommend Freedom Ink. …

Matthew Burnburg

After 20 years of thinking about getting a tattoo, I did some research and found that just about everyone said either Tim Beck or Freedom Ink was where I should go. For a first timer, Tim was an excellent choice. The work was great. I like detailed tattoos and Tim likes to do them. I am very pleased with all the tattoos I have gotten at Freedom Ink since then. Even people who generally don't like tattoos commented on how good mine are. If you want the best, go to the artists at Freedom Ink.

Sarah L

We had a great experience here. Tim made beautiful tattoos on my friend and myself. We traveled to come to the shop, ad it was worth ever minute and every dollar. The shop is clean and beautiful and well run. Tim and the other tattooers work hard and it shows.

Wes stockham

Tim Beck (owner) and his crew are the best around! I've personally been getting inked by Tim for nearly 12 years. He's not only a great artist, but a great guy all around.


Freedom Ink is hands down the best tattoo shop in Peoria. The shop itself is clean and aesthetically pleasing. It’s neat and nice, a real cool vibe. I have had 4 tattoos done by Tim Beck within the past 2 years. Tim is a top notch tattooer, a true professional. His work is impeccable. He knows what works and what doesn’t and I put all my trust in him with excellent results— better than I could have imagined. Peoria is lucky to have a tattooer of his caliber. I highly recommend Freedom Ink for your tattoo needs.

Brooke Troisi

I just recently got my first tattoo at Freedom Ink and everyone there was awesome. I walked in with an idea of what I wanted, but let them take over creating the actual design. What Zach came up with was perfect and way better than what I could have found on Pinterest or Google. I would definitely recommend asking for their creative input as they are definitely great artists. They were are super friendly and made me feel completely at ease during the whole thing. I felt that they were all very competent and professional. The place was super clean. I would recommend anyone I know to go to Freedom Ink!!!

Abigail Carroll

Recently my best friend and I came to Freedom Ink to get each of our first tattoos, and I’ll speak for both of us when I say it was an awesome experience. The place is cool and clean, and the employees all give a great vibe as well. I’m so happy with how it turned out, and Jeremy Armstrong’s artistic ability was top notch. Will be back again!

Michael Kelly

I've been tattooed a few times at the old shop and a few at the new shop and you couldn't ask for a better tattoo experience. Everything is top notch and done the way it should be. All the artists do incredible work. Treat yourself ✌️

Tim Beck is amazing, put into ink what I could barely describe. absolutely amazing work and in such a clean environment. I have never seen such a spotless tattoo shop. All the employees were well dressed and the artists show you each item as they are putting the gun together so you can see the sterile items being used. I would recommend any of the artists!

My experience at Freedom Ink. Tattoo Company was exceptional. The staff was professional and courteous, and the overall environment was very welcoming. I came into the shop with high expectations, and I am pleased to say that these expectations were not only met, but far exceeded. Tim Beck created a custom and masterful work of art that I will undoubtedly enjoy for the rest of my life. I will definitely be returning here for my next tattoo! I highly recommend this shop to anyone looking for a professionally done and one of a kind tattoo.

This is where I went to get my first tattoo. It was the greatest experience. They gave me a quote for price range, they were extremely professional and delivered exactly what I wanted. I was so thrilled with the artwork and had an amazing experience. Thank you so so much!!

Mindy Bachmann

First time at the shop and first tattoo with Tim. I was impressed with the shop and how clean it was! Tessa was great on the phone and in person, super easy to work with! Everyone was professional from start to finish! I have tattoos from others, Tim is the Best! He was quick and precise. I am very happy with my tattoo, I would definitely recommend Tim and Freedom Ink!

Kristin Opperman

I went to Freedom Ink. Tattoos a few months ago for my first tattoo. The shop was very welcoming and clean. Tim Beck did my tattoo and I was extremely happy with it. I just gave him an idea of what I wanted in a quote and he made it into something amazing. I was pretty nervous for my first tattoo but he made me very comfortable and it hardly hurt at all! I was very impressed and so were my friends and family. I will be going back in the next month or so for my second!

Heidi Taylor

Three words...Jeremy Ross Armstrong. It was so much more than I imagined. Such an artist.

Andre Hurst

Did a better job than I expected

Wm. D. Nelson

Amazing tattoo shop, could not have been in better hands and those folks have a lot to be proud about. Wonderful top of the line work and just stand very proud to say I've had work done there and plan to in the future and soon. Excellent shop! Very high quality everything and you couldn't find a cleaner place in Peoria. You would basically eat off of their floors.

Kate DeGroot Parrish

Tim Beck is an amazing artist and a true professional with extraordinarily high standards for quality and cleanliness. I went to Tim with the idea of what I wanted and he made it even more gorgeous than I could imagine- to the point that I can't believe this is my tattoo. Tim is an outstanding artist and I would recommend Freedom Ink to anyone interested in high quality and insanely beautiful tattoos.

Elizabeth Foster

My experience with Freedom Ink Tattoos was nothing less than stellar. This was my first tattoo & my researching for the best led me to Tim with Freedom Ink. I walked in without an appointment to inquire about my ideas, and even though they were clearly busy, Tim took the time to talk with me and give me his professional opinion along with some ideas to think over. The shop is beautiful, comfortable, & clean, and the staff is friendly & welcoming. Upon my appointment, Tim took genuine care to utilize his expertise and creativity, while listening to what I wanted and making sure I was happy. He was professional, polite, and took the time to explain every step to me. The pride he takes in his work is obvious, and he and the staff showed genuine excitement for me when my tattoo was complete. Most importantly, I couldn't be happier with my tattoo! It's perfect and exactly what I wanted. Aftercare instructions were very clear and I've healed beautifully. Tim is an amazing artist and the entire experience has created a loyal customer of me. Thank you Tim & Freedom Ink staff!

Dan Nystrom

Awesome professional place and staff. Tim beck tattooed me and it turned out better than I expected.. I'll be back again soon .

Lori Pennington

I've just had my first tattoo and my experience couldn't have been better. Jeremy made me feel relaxed and the artwork is gorgeous, way better than I could have imagined! Already thinking of my next one and will definitely send people their way! Super clean, professional and loved the decor! Believe me, I did a lot of research and Freedom Ink was hands-down the best!

Scott Pepino

Amazing. Not sure there's any other way to describe it. From the building which is modern, artistic, rustic, the front staff, to the artists, everything was amazing. It's so professional, clean, and inviting. Tim Beck did my work, and just from a few pictures taken right after, I've received the most incredible comments. Many have said its the best work they've seen. I would agree. I couldn't be happier. Had many tattoos before, I'm disappointed this is my first from Tim. He was personable and appreciated how important this particular tatoo was to me. I can't wait to go back. Thank you guys for such an AMAZING experience.

Dustin Wells

Just got my first tattoo here, it's a great shop! Everyone was super friendly and helpful, and Tim did an amazing job! Will definitely be going back soon.

Freedom ink is a very well established tattoo shop located in savvy, Downtown Peoria's warehouse district. Walking in the front door provides you a feeling that you have come to the right place. You will find yourself in the center of Americana and touches of a older time where things were built to last and people were happy to see you. The warehouse provides a great backdrop to Tim's new facility. Classic pieces of tattoo flash hang on the walls mixed with art from around the world and my personal favorite, classic tattoo art and American history pieces. The Lord knows I want to walk away with some of it. You wont be able to help but flip through the owners published books of art while you enjoy the warm buzz of a tattoo machine just through the passage ways that were once busy loading docks full of working class folks trying to enjoy the American Dream. Feel free to take a peek over the wall or through the classic, hand painted window at the people getting worked on... they'll be happy to share whether or not a tattoo is painful... just ask, we like that. Tim Beck saved my arms from rookie adventures in the tattoo world and has completed other pieces for me. Whether it be your first tattoo, continuing your collection, flash art or a custom portrait... Tim will leave you pleased with your purchase for several years to come. Freedom ink is very welcoming, very sanitary and staffed with great folks ready to help you decide what you'd like to have permanently placed on your body. Rebecca was there to answer my calls this week and to welcome me to the shop this afternoon, don't call her Becky.. she's never been a Becky. She's a Very fun, down to earth person ready to help you. You won't be disappointed with your choice to spend money at freedom ink.. buy a hat, buy a shirt. Enjoy a free sticker with your purchase and leave 100% cooler then you were when you arrived.

Donna Jones

Tim is a great artist, I would recommend his services. He is a family man who is a Christian.

Jason Lowe

Awesome first tattoo experience in a hip, clean and professional shop. This location is first class and the artist Tim Beck is a true master. My wife and I both could not be more pleased with his work. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED WITHOUT RESERVATION!!!

Mickey Sweatt

Very pleased with Tim's work. Very personable guy that understands and meets your requests. The shop was pristine and overall experience was 5 star.

Morgan Reuter

Tim Beck at Freedom Ink is the best tattoo artist I've ever encountered. I showed him a picture of what I was wanting and he turned it into the most beautiful piece of art. I will go to Freedom Ink for all of my tattoo needs going forward. The shop is clean and the guys there are friendly, highly recommended!

mark craig

I've had three tattoos by three different tattoo artists. Tim Beck is by far, the best. Tim and the rest of the artists at Freedom Ink are professional, courteous, and willing to help their patrons get a tattoo that exceeds their own expectations. Freedom Ink is clean and has a welcoming environment. I would recommend anyone wanting or thinking of getting a tattoo to visit Freedom Ink. Tim has done an entire sleeve on my arm: I get multiple compliments on the design and details of the tattoo. Simply put, he's the best.

Dauson Stimpson-Gagnon

Epic place to get ink done. The staff is really friendly and the talent is amazing. Highly recommend getting your tattoos done there.

matt leathers

This is by and far the best tattoo shop I have ever visited. The shop was extremely clean and the decor was awesome. I went in with a rough idea of what I wanted, because I have no artistic talent and Tim Beck was able to draw something for me that was perfect. There was no pressure and he made sure that it was perfect before we even got started. I was blown away with the tattoo when it was finished. They gave great advice on after care and even did a call back the next day to make sure everything was going perfect!! I will definitely be going back and it won't be soon enough. There work speaks for itself, whether you have many tattoos or this is your first this is the best shop around. Thanks a lot Freedom Ink -Matt

Scott Walk

I have had two tattoos done by Tim Beck and my wife one. This place is absolutely awesome, they do amazing work, the shop is clean and professional looking as can be and everyone that works there is laid back and nice as can be. Couldn't …

Bernie Waibel

Very professional

Manuel Garza

Very nice people! Clean shop and very good quality too! This is where you go if you want the best!

Justin Miller

This is easily the best tattoo shop in the area. The store itself looks great with a designated waiting area and a large, clean work space. All of the artists are extremely talented and Parker did an amazing job on my last tattoo. The prices are reasonable and Becca is great at answering any questions you might have before and after your session. I cannot recommend this place enough, you will not be disappointed!

Aaron Dollar

So far I’ve got 2 out of 3 of my tattoos at Freedom Ink. The first tattoo I booked with Jeremy Armstrong. This time I booked my appointment with Tim Beck. Can’t say enough good things about this shop, their professionalism, and the artistry. Super clean and inviting atmosphere - great people to work with. Love their style and especially love my new ink. Will for sure be getting more work done here in the future.

Mandi Kenney

Had my first tattoo done by Tim Beck. I wasn't sure how I wanted it laid out and he designed something I never would have thought of. Extremely happy with it! Great place!

adrienne reiser

I absolutely love Freedom Ink. I have gotten several tattoos from Zach and they are amazing. I have seen other work done by Tim and Jeremy. Would highly recommend Freedom Ink to anyone looking to get a quality tattoo, you will not be disappointed!

Bryan Hernández Dempsey

Consummate professionalism meets immaculate artistry at Freedom Ink. Tattoos. Tim Beck and the team of artists he has assembled at this shop represent the pinnacle of the art of tattooing in central Illinois if not the entire country. Tim has an attention to detail, sanitation, and cleanliness that is matched by his incredible skill and vision. This is no backwater, seedy tattoo parlor. It is instead a place where people can get the most out of what a tattoo can and should be. Tim's passion for (and dedication to) old-school, WWII-style, Americana tattoos is evident and has even served as an inspiration to me. Tim and his gang are always enthusiastic and genuinely excited for their clients; whether they come in with a tattoo idea or not. They are masters of taking rough ideas and making them more spectacular than you could imagine; and nothing is ever done unless it meets the client's expectations. Each one of my tattoos has come out better than I ever imagined they could and it is all thanks to Tim's suggestions and guidance. I have learned so much about tattoo history from my sessions at Freedom Ink. and I keep wanting to come back for more. I can not recommend this shop enough or more highly. You will absolutely not be disappointed should you decide to have your tattoo done here; in fact, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not come here first.

Victor Gray

Got first tattoo very enjoyable experience. Had lion head done on upper arm. Tim Beck is an amazing artist portrait was exactly what I was looking for.

Liz Keturi

Absolutely fantastic place that I highly, highly recommend! All the guys were welcoming & friendly; made you feel right at home! And the finished product was worth every single penny! Will definitely be going back to them for any future ink

April Burgett

Freedom Ink is a beautiful, clean, professional tattoo shop in the gorgeous warehouse district of Peoria. The staff are friendly, informative and the tattooers are top notch. If you are looking for an amazing traditional shop with walls full of flash to choose from, this is the place. If you are traveling, you definitely won't want to miss an opportunity to visit Freedom Ink and if you call Central Illinois home, you need to visit and get a tattoo at Freedom Ink. Tim Beck and his staff will not disappoint.

Barb Reardon

This is one of the coolest Tattoo shops I've ever been in. Not only are the artists there amazing at their jobs, they are all friendly and the music isn't too loud and annoying like in some shops. Jeremy is my artist, I've loved everything he's drawn. Thanks for everything Jeremy and thanks Tim for recognizing other great local artists and getting them in your shop.

Dmitri Krieger

Just got my first tattoo in the Peoria area here and my experience was exceptional. Tim Beck gave me a wrap around on my calf and worked diligently to make sure the piece was nothing but perfect. The shop is clean and comfortable, the staff is friendly and inviting, and the work speaks for itself. If you're serious about getting quality work done, I would definitely recommend Freedom Ink.

Emily Morgan

I received a tattoo by Tim about two months ago and I want to say it was simply stunning work! Tim drew up a tattoo exactly like I wanted and when the product was finished it looked amazing. This was my first time visiting Freedom Ink and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great artist and a clean shop. Tim goes the extra mile and all his staff were kind and genuine. I can't say enough great things please stop by Freedom Ink if you want a great quality tattoo.
