I had my hand pierced (twice - no fault of Jade Dragon - it just worked it's way out) and I'm returning to Jade for a dermal in March 2013. I don't remember the guy who did it but he was a complete professional and charming. I had no issues with my first or second piercing. At the time, my piercing was unique. He took a picture of it and it's in his portfolio.

Received my first tat by Fat Joe in 1985 then went back to add to it. years later (moved away) came back a number of times for piercings and various Tats and NEVER had a problem and I think I met at least 10 artists. It is a bit pricey however those boys have to cover their chairs and bring home some dough. RIP Fat Joe....I'll never forget the time we hit a night spot and your antics were out of control. Thanks for all the late night bs sessions...bosa... The hearse...and those stupid dares you would get me to do. Peace

So, looking at all the mixed reviews left me hesitant to go to Jade Dragon, but my daughter really had her heart set on getting her first tat from there. This was not my first, but it was the first from Chicago (I am from New York). Anyway, we got there around 4pm, met Ritchie, told him what we wanted (well gave him our sketch) and we were out of there by 5:15pm. Daughter and I got matching Karma ambigrams on the inside of our wrists. Hers is on the left, mine is on the right. It has been one week. They look great! And, they are healing quite nicely.
Ritchie was fantastic! He was fun to talk to and was very focused on what he was doing. He did both of them. I will be going back because I now have an even number of tats (4) and need to make it 5. Don't ask, just know that I like odd numbers. Daughter wants another one too!
The shop was clean and inviting. Everyone was nice and accommodating. Yeah, it was a bit pricey (110 for a 2 1/2 x 1/2 inch tat, but the convenience more than made up for it. This is the first one I did not have to wait for. As we were taking our turns, we watched two other guys working and I could tell they were doing a great job (duh, the tats they were doing looked great! One was a large cross and the other was a tiger.)
Anyway, I would recommend Jade Dragon to everyone!

You jack holes are such media whores, most of your artist are losers who can't find work in a real tattoo shop. 90% of the cover ups I do all went to JADE DRAGON, and all swear to never go back again. I had this one guy who paid $500 for a celtic cross on his back, no color, no shading, and to top it off, it was crocked (no pun intended). A mental challenged ape could of done a better job using its feet. but hey, what do you expect from a place that is black listed from every major tattoo convention in north america. the only conventions they go to are the ones they have to sponser. If you idiots spent more time taking this profession seriously instead of creating review sights to B.S. everyone just to get them in the door like your doing here,... well lets face it, I might be out of work. thank god fat joe finaly went to hell, and can no longer bribe aldermen and zoning boards to keep other shops from opening in the chicago area. But I degress, keep up what your doing, it gives the real artist out here a better rep.

Jade is great. i went here for my third tattoo of a snake and a tiger fighting on my upper arm and Matt made it look perfect. He totally got what i was talkin about when i gave him the idea. There shop was very clean very professional and matt was really cool.There prices are a little higher than the other places but in my opinion its well worth it. I will not be going anywhere else but here, ive had some bad experiences at other shops but not with Jade. I will for sure be going back for more and whenever someone asks me where i got this tattoo im proud to say Jade Dragon

I didn't get my first tat at Jade, nor my second. But I really thought it through before I got my third since it was going to be a unique and very special work of art. I thought about it for about two years and than it came to me. I finally knew what I wanted. I was a grandma of six wonderful grandbabies, (ranging in ages from 1 to 11) and I have always told them to shoot for the stars, the sky's the limit. So in keeping with that I knew I wanted something that would always be with me as well as a reminder of the importance of what I wanted to instill in each of my grandkids. I was so very lucky to walk into the best Tattoo Parlor in the city ! I was impressed with the personal service, and was overwhelmed with the excitement that my idea for my tat was met with. I couldn't believe that I was immediately taken to meet Gabriel, as I was told that he was the guy to do my "special" ink for me. I looked at him, and knew right away. Yes, Gabe was the guy who understood what this met to me. They really know their stuff there. I told him what I wanted and he immediately picked up on exactly what I saw in my minds eye, as I could tell he saw it too. He sketched the most amazing and exact version of what I wanted. It wasn't flash off the displays, It was all that I had imagined. And yes, a Tat done right does tell a story! I now have an amazing piece of art on my shoulder that is of the sun with a sliver of a moon (by the way, he gave the moon my green eyes, making it really all my own) inside of it blowing 6 stars out on their own journey,across the sky, each going for the limit. Each star is the color of each grandkids birthstone, and each grandkid knows which star is theirs. They always have to point to their own star, and say "here's mine" They are all so proud of their special place in my heart and on my shoulder for the world to see. Gabriel was in touch with the importance of this tat to me, and gave me something unique and special, and forever it will say to my grandkids, believe in all you do,and who you are.... shoot for the stars. Gabriel's art touched my life in an amazing way. He is much more than just a guy with some ink and some flash doing a job. He gave me something to cherish, and to wear proudly. Thanks Gabe. Your the King Of Ink ! The artists at this shop take pride in all they do, and I was lucky to have one of the best leave his mark on me. It was his love of his craft that gave me such a wonderful gift that I will always have with me. ( I have a new Granddaughter Gabe, so I need one more star added, I'll be seeing you soon ! )

I've been going to Jade Dragon Tattoo for high quality since 1981. My whole family and all of my friends go to Jade Dragon too. You can always count on Jade Dragon to deliver Top Notch Artwork at Dirt Cheap Prices! All of their stuff is brand new and sterilized. Its cleaner than a hospital at Jade Dragon Tattoo.
I have collected over 70 tattoos from Jade Dragon since 1981 and their colors are so good that I have NEVER had any touch-ups on any of em! If you want great body art at great prices check out the DRAGON! I wife and I even meet DMX at Jade Dragon while he was getting tattooed.
P>S. No wonder Jade Dragon is the world's biggest and busiest tattoo and piercing store!

PROS: Real good artists and piercer guys. Cheap prices. Giant selection of tattoo
CONS: I RAN OUT OF SKIN!!!!!!!

Jade is one of the most popular places in Chicago to get a tattoo done. I've had mine done here and most of the people I know who've had work done got them here. The place is clean, the artists are friendly and they got 1000's of tattoos to pick from. The prices are very reasonable and they're open until late in the evening.

I have be shopping around for a clean reliable tattoo studio to get my first tattoo done. I was a bit scared and neverous about the whole ordeal until I met the artists at Jade Dragon on Belmont. The shop was spotless and everyone was so friendly and they put my mind at ease.
I was surprised to see that out of the seven studios I went to, Jade Dragon gave me the best price by far. My tribal armband was only $170- and Tattoo Factory quote me $345- for the same tattoo! Over Double the price.
If you want a sweet tattoo at a very resonable price check out Jade Dragon Tattoo. This place is sooooooooooo clean
you could eat off of the floor.
I'm bringing my girlfriend here for a belly button ring for her birthday next week.
You can count on Jade Dragon for a positive Bodyart experience.

PROS: Great Price! Great Artists! Great Selection! Helpful! Friendly!
CONS: None!

They have the best selcection of art around. The prices are good. The area isn't the best, but hey it's a tat place. They do peircings too. All thier equiptment is clean and sterile. Looks new too! The artists are great and friendly. They help you choose what you want. They can draw you a tat if you don't see one you like.

This is one the three best known tattoo parlours in the Chicago area. Inside the store is fine but the area outside can be a little sketchy at night. They're working to clean up the area. Actually, most of the stores in that block have left (they're renovating the area) so call before you go because Jade might haved moved. At any rate, it's a great stop. You can count on clean count on new, clean equipment and really gorgeous artwork.
