Brenton is my go to for all my piercing needs! whether that be getting a new one, or changing jewelry, he’s the man for the job! the front desk staff is also very sweet and helpful 🙂
Great place to get piercings. Felt like I was in their waiting area and filling out their customer background forms for longer than the actual consultation/cleaning/piercing. If you can, get your piercings done by Damon. They quadruple checked the precise ear location I wanted mine done on and helped map out where I can expect I want future ear piercing locations. In and out with spot on cleanliness, can't ask for more.

I've used both the tattoo side and piercing side and every time I come here I have such an amazing time. Claire is so unbelievably talented and just a joy to talk to. Hands down an experienced artist. I got a cover-up from her and I can't even see my old tattoo anymore. Her music taste is also impeccable which is a plus. Naiya is such a professional piercer. Answered any and all questions and put my friend and I at ease. She was fast and thorough, and took extra time to make sure we were okay. Can't wait to come back!

Always a pleasant experience here! I live in LA but always come back to Chicago for all of my piercings and tats. Tat Cave is my true go-to! Love them!

I went in as a walk-in on a Saturday afternoon and had Moses do a hip tattoo which came out sooo good that I returned that following Monday to do the other hip! Moses is friendly, great with communication and extremely talented. He makes sure to make you feel comfortable and always professional. Thank you!

I spent a while looking for a good tattoo place when I moved to Chicago, and Chi Town was everything I was looking for! I've so far had my ears pierced, and I've gotten a back tattoo from Mandy, who I highly recommend! She was always easy to get ahold of and was very open to working with me on my tattoo design. This is definitely my go-to place for body art!
