in 2013, owners Nick and Sarah Colella opened Great Lakes Tattoo in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood. The shop is a one-of-a-kind space with an attitude-free atmosphere that celebrates and honors the traditions of tattooing; past, present and future. Considered one of the best tattoo shops in Chicago, Great Lakes Tattoo also houses the Great State Gallery, an art and event space that hosts art shows, storytelling nights, live music and more.
