ILL STATE INK

SERVING CHICAGOLAND EST. 2012

Ideas become dreams. Dreams become reality. ILL State Ink bloomed from the idea of a trio of artists who wanted to open a tattoo studio dedicated to quality tattooing and personally attentive customer service. You'll find no "tattitudes" or egos from the artists at ILL State Ink. Our goal is to provide clients with a unique tattoo as original as a custom piece of art. Our studio is located at 3088 N. Milwaukee Ave, in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago just minutes from Logan Square. Our studio offers an inviting relaxed experience. Our lounge area features comfortable seating with internet access and streaming movies. You'll feel right at home. Browse through portfolios and just kick back  as you wait for your new tattoo. Visit ILL State Ink today and let us turn your new tattoo idea into a reality.
