REVIEWS OF The Inkery Tattoo Studio IN Illinois


This place is great! Top quality work. Gumby and the staff were great to work with. Very professional.

Andrew Gorney

Very easy-going prices are very reasonable. Going back in May to get my sleeve finished.

Tom Fleming

Great place, nice professional artists, friendly staff

Abby Bouldin

Just got a tattoo done here and I will definitely go back! Allen did my work and he captured what I wanted perfectly. He stayed after the shop closed to make sure it wasn't done in a rush too. I love that he talked to me about his life the whole time- it was really nice. The whole staff seemed extremely nice and knowledgeable. Great prices. Overall I'm extremely happy with everything I experienced there today and 100% recommend this shop! I've gotten work done at many different shops and this is among my favorite now.

Colette Liska

Clean, professional, and they do great work. I've already had 3 small tattoos done, all by different artists, and all 3 were excellent. I look forward to getting my next tattoo from here!

Mike Schwickerath

LOVE Gumby the artist and Linda who does the scheduling. They are both super nice and great conversationalists. We came here to get a tattoo fixed up from a previous screw up ELSEWHERE...Gumby did a great job and now I can live with my tattoo forever. His shop is very clean and his pricing is very reasonable. We will be back for my birthday to finish up my arm. Thanks guys!!

Kelly Madera

I've always had a great experience here. Coming across Gumby has changed alot of things in a good way. Unfortunately I have a handful of scars ranging from my arms to my hands and a few other places and Gumby didn't think twice about helping me and covering them up for me and putting something on my body that i actually want. I have now had 6 cover ups by him and I am more than amazed by them all. He's helped me through so much just between the amazing art he has gave me that has also gave me a new confidence, I honestly feel like he has worked magic on me, becuse you would never think anything is under my tattoos. Gumby is not only an amazing artist he's also an amazing person! Thank you for everything! And I can't wait to come visit you again!

Amazing Artists! This was my fiancé and I first tattoo and I could have not picked a better place for it! Gumby my artist was amazing and my LEGO Darth Vader came out freaking awesome! My fiancé artist Allen was awesome, he let her know all the steps and procedures that will happen during the tattoo. He made it a calming and amazing experience for her. Will get more tattoos here in the future!

Glen Keller

I have been getting tattoos for the better part of 15 years and the experience that I had here yesterday was one of the best I have had at any shop across the states. Gumby was able to knock off a full half chest coverup (minus a couple of color add ins) in a very short amount of time. Engaging, funny, and didn’t talk down other artists or even rag on my “terrible” tattoos that he was covering up. Very professional in handling the tattoo and very funny in conversation. I have already scheduled my next appointment a few months out to continue my work. Also, the staff were extremely helpful. The place has a constant stream of walk-ins and appointments which they are more than willing to accommodate. I’ll update my tattoo on here as soon as it is completely finished and healed.

Justin Solarski

Very professional, clean shop, and will be going back for more here.

Tracey Stiles

I came into the shop and I was greeted by several friendly employees. After meeting with Gumby about covering up a tattoo and getting the tattoo done correctly, I made an appointment. When Gumby was finished, I was speechless. He is artistically talented and gave me the best two tattoos that I have had. I am grateful and blessed that our paths crossed. I highly recommend going to the shop. Simply amazing experience.

Gumby is a phenomenal tattoo artist, shop owner and person in general. His artwork and tattooing ability are well beyond what I could imagine or ask for every time he tattoos me I can sit there without looking or worrying that it will not be right. He is the only person I let tattoo me and if you’re wanting great work by a great artist this is the place to go!

Karen Schroeder

I had Anthony do my first tattoo and I have to tell you, it was a great experience!! Thank all of you wonderful guys here for all of your great support!!!!

Rick Becker

I haven't personally had work done here however I am an observer of Gumbys work. Not to mention any names but I have a friend that continues to roll out some very large pieces. Gumby is a gifted artist based on what I have seen. Don't hesitate to have work done by him.

Becky Sikorski

Today I was tattooed by Gumby!! I want to emphasize just how comfortable and relaxed I was in his shop. This is a great team of professionals to have around. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Gumby met with me about a month ago to discuss my tattoo, details, what I truly wanted. The session ran so smoothly. I can’t explain exactly how much I absolutely LOVE my tattoo now!! He really nailed exactly what I was looking for and wanting! I can’t wait to go back soon and complete my piece!! And continue to go back for anymore tattoos I wish to have. Thanks a bunch guys!!


Gumby is awesome...

Brian Stanzil

I don't know how to express how amazing this place and their staff is...... My girlfriend has some extensive scars all along her hands, forearms, upper thighs, and some more that she is very self conscious about. She's a young pretty girl and these scars have been holding her back and really make her feel bad about herself. After doing some research online, she went in and spoke with gumby. They came up with a beautiful design that covered up almost all of the scars on an entire hand and wrist. The experience could not have been better. Super clean shop, super friendly people, and amazing artwork. After her tattoo was finished and she was cleaning it off, gumby spoke with me and let me know that the shop would be covering every single one of her scars she wanted covered at NO charge. They said they wanted to help her put something on her body that she actually wants there. It's truly amazing to know there are still people out there like that who truly want to help other people. Thank you sooooooo much to Gumby and The Inkery for an amazing experience and for truly changing my girls life. You really have no idea what you've done for her, we cannot thank you enough! And we will both be coming back soon to get more work!

Long story short, my husband surprised me with a tattoo and came up with a drawing of what I wanted. He went into the shop to tell Gumby everything I wanted and with all the details. Gumby made it come to life. It was everything I pictured. From the shading, to the colors.. I'm very pleased with the whole experience and obsessed with my tattoo. I would definitely recommend Gumby to anyone, he is very professional and cares about his shop and customers!

Cayle Blazonczyk

Boss man forgot his Roman numerals, and when I addressed the issue he put all blame on me and threatened me if I wrote this review. Very unprofessional manner. Allan was a great artist and very polite and respectable man, unfortunately the owner had to ruin my views on the inkery.

Mallory McCarrell

Alyssa is amazing ! She was helpful and listened to exactly what I wanted when I got my tattoo! She is a rockstar! I highly suggest this tattoo spot

Amanda Tomasek

Great shop and amazing owner! Gumby does exceptional work. I went in yesterday to get a cover-up done and needless to say I’m beyond ecstatic! I can’t thank Gumby enough! Most importantly I don’t need to explain what’s tattooed on my ankle now! ❤️

penny wilson

I wish it was mine to show. It is the most unique, fanciful, breath-taking tattoo I have ever seen. The utmost definition of having an artfully blown mind, figuratively speaking. Gumby is an artist beyond compare. Such an eye! With great singers, with great pianists, with great architects, I wonder at the beauty these blessed souls can create, a true artist beyond understanding. This a Gumby. Again, I wish it was mine to show.

Matthew Kunath

My 2nd time in the shop and getting tattooed by Alyssa. I gave Alyssa a few references of what I wanted and she came up with her own design and nailed it. Already have my next appointment set up. Awesome work, clean and great atmosphere.

Mariah Afshari

Thank you for the wonderful tattoo. Available on a walk in basis. I was able to get a tattoo with my sister on my birthday! Nice staff, cleanly shop, and great work it was a wonderful experience.
