I can't say enough great things about Shred . He is an outstanding tattooer and extremely well rounded artist!! For about a year I had been searching the chicagoland area for someone to design a tattoo that I had been wanting. A big eyed characture of my dog and I . Simple enough right?? Wrong! Trying to find an artist in Chicago that actually drew anything other than traditional art was frustrating. When I came across the few, and I mean few artists in Chicago that claimed to be custom artists I was disappointed when viewing there portfolios. Until one day, while waiting for a friend to arrive at midway airport. Lucky for me her plane was delayed for 3 hours. Bored and hungry I decided to venture off and go get some food . While driving aimlessly down a side street in search of food I noticed a tattoo studio with a beautifully painted sign. What drew me to the sign was that it was so bold and colorful . I couldn't stop thinking about that fabulous black cat smoking a cigarette while eating. I decided I was gonna stop in there on my way back to the airport. Best decision of my life! I was pleasantly greeted by the owner Shred. I flipped through his portfolio and was just in aww of his work. Not only does he do the most amazing work that I have ever seen he does a huge variety of different styles of art. That's impressive! Shred is really an extremely easy person to talk to with no attitude. Very professional and you can tell when speaking to him he takes pride in his work and really cares about what he tattoos on people . Shred did my tattoo a few weeks later and Its more wonderful than I could have ever imagined it to be. Go check him out you wont be disappointed!!
Best tattoo place in Chicago! Shred is by far the most talented artist Chicagoland has to offer. If your looking for the best you found it!
Going for my 2nd Tat by Shred – Shred did my 1st tattoo. My BF brother had his done there. Shred designed exactly what I described. It turned out great & He made it a meaningful experience. The colors are still vivid & its been almost 8 yrs. He's an excellent artist & good conversationalist. I def recommend Shred's Inferno.
Awesome – I don't even know where to begin.
Shred made my first tattoo experience wonderful and enjoyable. I had no idea what to do, but Shred was super accommodating and made himself available to help me through the entire way.
When I first decided I wanted a tattoo, i did a ton of research and sent out some e-mails to a few different artists. Some artists took over a week to respond, and all of them took more than 4 days.
Shred answered my e-mail in less than 12 hours, and told me to come into so we could talk about what i wanted to do.
I had a vague idea of what I wanted and some text I wanted incorporated, however, for the most part, I was kinda lost.
Shred came up with the an amazing design that blew me out of the water.
His work and portfolio speaks for itself. It's absolutely phenomenal. Look it up. However, there are a lot of great artists, and what sets Shred apart, is his customer service and making sure that I was comfortable and satisfied every step of the way.
I can't recommend him enough and will go to him for all my future ink.
Best Portrait Tattoo Artist in Midwest – Shred is by far the BEST portrait tattoo artist in the midwest! He is award winning and just an all around great guy! If your seeking a tattoo in Chicago look no further! No attitude just amazing work!
Hands down the best Tattoo artist in Chicago – This place is the best.
I was looking for a place for my first tattoo and decided to check out Shred because he was in my neighborhood. I had a very specific design for my tattoo in mind but i didnt know how to get it in paper. shred told me to trust him with it and i could not be more pleased with the result. he really cares about making his pieces perfect. I was unsure about what to do with the coloring and i trusted him and thank God i did. i would 100% recommend him to anyone!!! i already told a few of my friends to go to him and they got the same results.
Derrick Rose is one of his loyal clients and if he approves what more than you need to Pick Shred's Inferno!!!!!!!!!!!! GO TO THIS GUY
Caring staff, great art – I went to Shred's cuz my brother has gotten a few tattoos from there. Shred's employee James has even designed some sweet designs for my brother.
This was my first tattoo and Shred's Inferno and James made my experience very comfortable. Not only did James ease my nerves with his easy-going and simple "nice guy" personality, but he showed concerned when I got a little light-headed halfway through my tattoo. After I cool back down, he continues on my tattoo and did a BEAUTIFUL job. (note: it's a ichthus, black only but shaded on my wrist.)
They say once you get a tattoo, you're going to want another and it's true, I do!
And I'll be going back to Shred's Inferno!!
Mom against tattoos was amazed at the result – I was never fond of tattoos until my 20 year old son visited his older brother in Chicago with a goal in mind of getting a tattoo. He researached and found Shred was the place he wanted to go.
I was amazed at the artwork that he came home with. Shred is a true artist and makes a thought come to life.
I must say that my views have changed regarding tattoos and now understand they are a true expression of one's inner-self in a very personal way.
I would even consider going to Shred for a tattoo myself.
These artworks are a part of my son so what's not to love?!
"Shred's an outstanding tattoo artist" 5 stars all the way – I thought one day i might just stop in and see whats up with this Shred's Inferno tattoo shop just to see if they can fix up my tattoo. I can tell you one thing im very happy i stoped in:)
Shred did one hell of a job fixing up that old tattoo. I recommend going to Shred's inferno for all of your tattoo's you will not be disappointed:)
"I am a Shred's Inferno customer for life"
