recommend a tattoo studio in chicago (mi)

i just want something that is definitely clean -- my design is not anything intricate, and can easily be done in one session.

oh, and i live on the north side of town.

I've had 2 done at Jade Dragon. Huge studio. They're way out west on Belmont...around Laramie, I think. They're as clean as you get.

I found thislist on citysearch. I really have no clue if those rankings are worth anything but maybe it'll give you some ideas. Swank (Chicago Tattoo Company) and Medusa's Circle are each within a block of Clark and Belmont if you want to check them out sometime. Wow, I never knew Medusa's Circle was also a parlor...their clothes are awesome...

Response by poster: thanks :) i've seen the billboards for jade dragon, but i wasn't sure about their rep -- knowing that it's really as clean as they say means a lot.

I've had two done at Chicao Tattoo Company. While I thought they were a little over-priced, they're good and friendly. And the neighborhood is (used to be) a good time - stop in at the Punk Rock Dunkin Donuts on the corner!

Check out Deluxe Tattoo on Irving Park. The owner, Ben Wahhhh, is well respected in the tattooing industry, and he does tremendous work.

(I haven't gotten a tattoo from him, but I'm an acquaintence of his. He was profiled in the Reader last year sometime, too.)
