Came here a couple weeks ago to see DJ Pearson. He specializes in black/geometric. I booked my appointment with him earlier this summer for November. His books fill up quick! He was patient and listened to what I wanted (double headed snake) and he came up with a piece that I absolutely am in love with. I had a previous tattoo and I was worried about working this one in. I just wanted a nice flow to it on my arm. It ended up looking even better than I could have imagined! He works quick yet super high quality as well. We talked about adding more my arm in the spring and he was already throwing ideas out for me. Definitely will be coming back to see him when his books open up again. The studio is also incredibly clean and organized and everyone there just seemed super chill. Over all, he’s a super chill guy, great convo, and very professional and extremely talented!

I am beyond thrilled that I found DJ to do my tattoos. I’ve had a lot of ideas for tattoos that he made happen. I keep coming back to him because I’m always impressed by his work and I trust him. His work is phenomenal and I would recommend him to anyone who is interested in getting geometric/blackwork designs. His ability to connect to his clients and execute their ideas is always creative and original. He is professional, skillful, and thoughtful. He works quickly and efficiently too, which is a bonus. The shop itself is well kept and everyone who works there has been very welcoming and nice.

My husband and I came from 7 hours away to get tattooed from DJ, loving the style and quality of his work we had seen. Not only did the work exceed our expectations, but he was also a phenomenal human being! Was an overall great experience & we will definitely be going back!

Kat Morgan

What an amazing experience. I had the opportunity to get a piece done by DJ Pearson. He’s a truly talented artist, in addition to being really professional. I booked the appt. in advance because DJ’s books fill up quickly. He was really accessible and easy to communicate with. He specializes in black ink geometric patterns which are absolutely beautiful. We talked and I showed him pictures of the work he’s done that I was interested in. He drew something up same day for me, and the first piece I was presented with was amazing. He got the stencil printed, and the placement was perfect. I love the piece he did on the back of my arm. I was comfortable during the whole process. We had great conversation, good tunes in the background. I’m going back to him for another piece soon, and I can’t wait. I’ve been recommending his work to all of my friends, and have received so many compliments. If you’re looking for a truly one of a kind piece by an amazing artist, DJ is the guy for you.

I've been searching for a great cover up artist for over 4 yrs, talked with many places in Chicago, and then I got to talking with my co-workers recommending Mayday Tattoo co, they get work done by Garrett and Ponyboy. When I came in to meet some of them, I was immediately sent to see Gary's work online.. I finally met Gary at the tattoo show in Rosemont 2017 and brought my design and yes I waited 3 months later to start it but highly satisfied I did.. Spoke to other local shops, new and old and they told me stick with him and waited it out, you wont be disappointed.. Well I'm 13 sessions to date and the looks, and wow's at the amazing work and so precise and detail that the wait was well worth it, I'm not disappointed at all.. Pics will be posted soon as the sleeve is complete..Way to go Gary....thanks

First appointment today with Gary. Great experience, highly recommend.

Derek Cook

Staff is very friendly and professional! I'm currently about halfway done with a sleeve and couldn't be happier with the results. DJ has done a phenomenal job and has been a lot of fun to work with. I live nearly three hours away but it's been well worth it, we have even planned out another project for the future. Hands down one of the best shops around.

lets be honest. every artist is different. ive dealt with 2. pony is amazing! hands down, the best artist in the damn country. this goes for his customer service skills as well. however gary is another story. he has an ego as high as the roof, makes all of his clients wait hours for him, and doesnt seem to care. i had many problems with him. when i brought up all the issues with him, he threatened to blacklist me if i "bad mouthed him." im sure he will respond to this review with his arrogant lies, but i have to get it out there. i was going to file a complaint with the bbb, however they said i had to do it against the company as a whole, and i was not about to have that mark against pony. so a google review will have to do. garys work may be great, but his attitude does not match his artwork. i have so many more details i could share, but far too much for a review. I would recommend pony 150% though! and if it was just pony running the business, my review would be 5 stars.

Chris Pearce

Awesome shop, period. Elite artists. Incredibly fun, nice staff. Cleanest of environments. I won't go anywhere else for my artwork or tattoo needs and highly recommend Mayday Tattoo.
