When owner Ben Wahh opened Deluxe Tattoo in 1997, he based the location solely on its proximity to his favorite barbecue restaurant (which since closed). Needless to say, he had no idea that years later, his shop would be considered among the best in Chicago, made famous by LA Ink artists Kim Saigh and Hannah Aitchison. The shop's specialities run the gamut, from simple five-minute tats to full sleeves and backpieces, American traditional, Japanese, biomechanical and photo realism.
