Wild Wind Tattoo – Chicago’s Tattoo Shop


Wild Wind Tattoo opened in 2014 in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago by Rich Marafioti. Marafioti spent 10 years tattooing professionally in Chicago before opening a shop of his own, which focuses on custom work while their open-air set-up gives the shop a welcoming but electric atmosphere.

Wild Wind is a still a traditional walk-in shop, and resident artists Chis Cendejas and Carlos Montilla, along with Marafioti, have broad stylistic backgrounds within tattooing that give the shop a versatility and range to service needs of a universal clientele.

The shop’s back wall features an 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.
