Located in Wicker Park, Chicago

Speakeasy (formerly Cherry Bomb) is owned by Patrick Cornolo and is the home to world renowned artists each dedicated to giving you the best service and tattoo available. We are not your average tattoo shop…Speakeasy is an Appointment Only custom tattoo shop, designed not only to be a highly functional, clean work environment, but also to have a very comfortable, relaxed atmosphere that puts both the Artists and Clients at ease. We want your experience to be as memorable as the piece of art you leave with.

Being a custom tattoo shop, we prefer to work with our clients to come up with an original piece of art that you will not find on any wall. Each artist at Speakeasy works directly with their own clients, creating artwork with your input and their vision. We believe you should pick an artist based on how their style fits what you want.

That being said, please check out the rest of the site to see all of the artists and a sampling of their work, you can link to their individual websites or Instagram pages from there for a more extensive look at their artwork. Each artist at Speakeasy is responsible for their own scheduling so please be sure to contact the artist you are interested in directly. They will set up a consultation appointment for you to discuss your tattoo idea in person.


Current list of artists at Speakeasy:
Patrick Cornolo, Scott Fricke, Sean Adams, Jennifer Trok, Josh Grable, SoloKill , Crystal Martinez, Ashley Wollaston, Adam Fox (starting in September) & Christian Wise

Book your appointments early, it will be worth the wait! Most of our artist are booked out 2 months to a year or more. We have very limited space and generally cannot accommodate walk-ins. Please go to the FAQ Tab at the top of this page for more information on scheduling an appointment. We would rather you have the tattoo you DESERVE as opposed to a tattoo RIGHT NOW.

Speakeasy is a CASH ONLY shop! We are located near several banks for your convenience.
