About the Shop
Wild Wind Tattoo opened in 2015 in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago by Rich Marafioti. Rich had spent 10 years tattooing professionally in Chicago before opening Wild Wind, which focuses on custom work. The open-air set-up gives the shop a welcoming, but electric atmosphere.
Wild Wind is a traditional walk-in shop. Resident artists along with Marafioti, have broad stylistic tattooing backgrounds that give the shop a versatility and range to service the needs of universal clientele.
The shop’s back wall features ever-changing installations designed and constructed by the resident artists as well out outside artists. Installations are always free to the public during regular business hours.
