While professional tattooing was first introduced to the United States in New York, Chicago was only a few years behind. Chicago was a late bloomer and while many of the major cities in the US were thriving, Chicago was still a wilderness. However, once it got going, Chicago became one of the most powerful cities in America. Many famous tattoo artists set up their studios on State Street “that great street” and today Chicago is still known for having some of the most famous tattoo parlours in the United States. If you’ve had bad experiences getting tattoos or you’re not fond of what you currently have, you have options. There are laser removal businesses and you can even get a cover-up from your tattoo artist. The point is, Chicago is home to some of brightest and best minds when it comes to tattoo art. If you’re looking for the perfect piece of body art, you can’t go wrong when you’re in the Windy City. Hours vary and some may be open 24 hours. Check our listings for tattoo artists that serve the Chicago area.
