Hurts like hell – I went to get my lip piercing done at Master Mind Ink. Steve the piercer there did the piercing. After I came home my lip started to swell up. The jewelry started to sink in my lip. I called the shop but couldn't get a hold of the piercer. So I called around other shops to get some advice on what is wrong with my piercing. I got a hold of a piercer from a shop not too far from Master Mind Ink. He told me that my problem is that the jewelry is too small for the initial piercing. So I went to him and he changed it to the correct size and gave me instructions on how to take care of it.
Was my first tattoo and strongly recommend it. – I recently got tattooed for my first time and it was a awesome experience, the people were nice and allowed me to express what I wanted done without criticism but offered me their ideas. It was a clean and nice environment you could tell that they take care of the place. When it was time to get tattooed they explained to me what i needed to such as not hold my breath and not to tighten my muscles which helped to deal with the tattoo. It was a three hour session and I will be going back. I live in Indiana and I feel as though I would rather make the trip to get tattooed in the environment rather then getting tattooed around here. I would recommend this establishment to anyone getting tattooed, if its your first time or been tattooed many times.
Get It Right the First time – Interested in getting a new tattoo?
Get it right the first time, and make an appointment at Mastermind Ink. Mastermind Ink is a shop with substance. With incredible, well-rounded artists and a professional attitude to match, privilege yourself with the right decision.
Getting tattooed is as personal as it is permanent. Have a conversation with Speck Osterhout, and you'll be showing off to friends a tattoo just as you imagined it in your head. Head over to the North Side, and just have a look at the portfolios on display at the front counter. Only the inherent talent and experience of the artists at Mastermind Ink could yield such beautiful tattoos. Mastermind Ink is not only a tattoo shop, but an art gallery. The diversity of all the artists at the shop is evidenced by their canvas paintings and sketches on the walls.
Speck Osterhout has tattooed me several times, and will continue to do so. I wouldn't go to another artist in Chicago.
Get it right the first time and ignore the over-priced hipster shops and make an appointment at Mastermind.
Will be back – If you're looking for really quality tattoos at super reasonable rates, Mastermind is absolutely the place to go. I've had several large pieces done at other high caliber shops and although the quality was just as good, the prices were always outrageous.
Speck did a fantastic job on a fairly large piece I had done on my back. I sent her the photo and she had it all drawn up when I went there 2 days later, and had even put some thought into adding a little extra to make the tat "pop". It took awhile, but since they don't charge by the hour like some other expensive places I've been to, I didn't mind at all.
The atmosphere was really welcoming and my friend even got to hang out and chat while I was getting the work done. They definitely welcomed us with open arms and I have been back a couple times with other people. They don't even mind if you just chill on their huge sectional couch and watch TV.
I've also recommended Mastermind to several other people and I know they have all been happy with the result. I would never recommend a good friend to a crappy tattoo joint so to me that says a lot.
i love mastermind! – i know when i go there i'm going to get great work for a great price!
the artists are amazing & love what they do. they love doing original work on original people. anyone i know that's been there, won't go to anywhere else, because they know they've found the best. the artists are just down to earth, cool people that make for a comfortable and friendly environment. A+!!!
never going anywhere else again – well first off, we werent sure if we were going to make it to our appointment on time, but the staff was awesome there told us to not worry about being late and worked around our schedule.
the staff is all really talented and super friendly.
we had an idea, but wanted her to make it her own piece so she took out some markers and just went away at drawing the stencil on his back.
we figured the outline of the tattoo would've taken 5 or so hours, but she did such an amazing job and did the outline of a full back piece in just 2 1/2.
i can't wait to come back in a week or so!
Unconventional Convention – I had the pleasure of getting a tattoo at a convention. I met three of the staff, who were entertaining, funny, and very supportive of my desired design. Usually, at conventions, artist don't want to do original pieces, or draw up something, not only was the artist willing to draw it up, on the spot, but also was quick, professional, and made it a great time for my family, friends, and myself.
The Greatest Tattoo Experience EVER!!!! – Fun exciting environment!!, Great Friendly Faces. Relaxing vibes Let's you forget you about some of the pain lol. Amazing experienced Artists!!! cuz who wants a prison Tatt right? A++ In my book Get Tattooed her NOW!!!!
BEST SHOP IN CHICAGO HANDS DOWN – Everyone here is super nice, they give you incredible prices for really, really good work. Best shop in the area for sure. Stop by and check out the art on the walls, you will see true talent.
