Tattoo Shops

  What to Look For in the Best Tattoo Shops in Chicago

There are many tattoo shops in Chicago but not all are created equal. Although your choice is completely dependent on your own personal preferences, there are a few things you should keep in mind no matter what style of tattoo you're going for. Here are the top qualities of tattoo shops that anyone looking for a shop should be mindful of.


  Clean/Sanitary & Safe


Not only should the tattoo shop be clean in general, it should also be sanitary. You shouldn't see leftover food wrappers all over the table, but you also shouldn't see uncovered needles laying about. Make sure your tattoo artist keeps the space clean, sanitary, and safe for each customer.


  Welcoming & Friendly


Your artist should welcome you into their chair, talk with you about your ideas, and offer helpful feedback. They should always make sure you feel safe and comfortable from the moment you open the door.


  Willing to Customize


You may have a lot of big ideas that don't translate well as ink on skin. Your artist shouldn't simply tell you "no '', but should be able to explain why what you want won't look good and offer alternatives.


  Answer Questions & Provide Guidance


You should never be afraid to voice your concerns or ask questions to your artist. After all, this art is going to be on your body forever so you should be happy with it! They should also give you instructions on proper tattoo aftercare.
