    Can anyone recommend a good tattooer?

    I am looking for someone who has been tattooing for 10+ years

    All depends what kind of work you want to get done. What did you have in mind?

    Mario Desa and Nick Colella at Chicago Tattooing Company http://chicagotattoo.com/home.html are probably the two most notable traditional artists in Chicago. Haven't had anything done by either, but I've heard nothing but good things about both. Chicago Tattoo also gets a fairly decent number of people doing guest spots when they're in town. I've also heard lots of positives about Family Tattoo http://familytattoochicago.com/home.html . Hope that helps!

    patrick cornolo, used to be 1/2 of cherry bomb tattoo, before kim saigh went off
    to film "la ink" and ended up moving out there. he came highly recommended,
    but i could never get an appointment, so i can't say for certain. check him out at:

    i ended up going to deluxe tattoo on irving park, mostly because of jason vaughn.
    super cool guy, or at least i thought so. love his style, and well worth checking out:

    Agreed.
    Mario Desa is awesome. Chad Koeplinger is doing a guest spot there real soon(like maybe next week?).
