JAPANESE INSPIRED TATTOOS
Welcome to Studio One Chicago, now home to the private tattoo studio of owner Nuco Villanueva.
Since 2009 Studio One Chicago has been a operating as street shop in Pilsen where walk-ins were always welcome. Since we are required to operate by appointment only due to Covid-19, limiting the number of clients in the shop, we have adapted and laid out how to get tattooed by Nuco. Nuco’s books are open, and he is eager to tattoo from his portfolio. The minimum tattoo price is $250 and for larger multi-session projects his hourly is $250. You can visit his portfolio on Instagram @n_u_c_o and message him directly to schedule a consolation and appointment. All other inquires can be emailed to email@example.com Thank you!
Owner-Studio One/Tattoo artist-20yrs experience
Originally from Durango, Mexico, Nuco moved into Chicago's Little Village neighborhood in the early 1980s. Professionally tattooing since 1996, in 2009 he opened Studio One Chicago in Pilsen neighborhood. As his career developed he experimented with different styles and realized that traditional techniques and applications are fundamental to a bold and long-lasting tattoo. So naturally he was drawn to American and Japanese traditional tattooing. Studio One respects that tradition, and is reflected in the work by both resident and guest artists alike. Today, Nuco continues to study and travel to learn from the best.
New Safety Procedures at Studio One Chicago:
Increased disinfection & cleaning: We will increase the frequency of disinfecting and cleaning of all high touch areas.
Maintain social distancing: We have spaced out appointments to reduce congestion. Only one artist will be working at a time, and only one client is allowed in at a time.
Masks: You will be required to wear a protective mask during your tattoo session. You can also wear a face covering, if you so choose.
Hand washing: It is requested that you wash your hands upon arriving to Studio One. Your artist will also wash their hands at this time too.
How to Prepare Before Your Appointment and What to Expect:
If you are sick or feeling ill, please stay home and contact Nuco directly to cancel. No fee for cancellation.
We are now offering a private tattoo environment, by appointment only, as we find this the safest way to ensure all common areas are property cleaned and disinfected before and after your session.
Eat before you arrive, come to your appointment rested and healthy.
Please come to your appointment alone. Only you will be allowed in.
We require you wear a face mask during your entire session.
We ask you refrain from touching any common surfaces excect for in your designated waiting area, which you will be asked to remain in while we prepare your station.
No food or eating is allowed in the studio, and please bring your own water or designated drink.
We appreciate your understanding of our increased safety measures. It is understood that increased procedures can be an inconvenience at times, but ultimately keep both you and our staff as safe as possible while visiting. Thank you!
