Cherry Bomb Tattoo

Cherry Bomb Tattooing
CHICAGO, IL 60622-2452
Established: 1999
Artists: Patrick Cornolo
“Please note that I am a one-man operation so I am not always able to get back to people as quickly as I would like.” This is the apologetic ending to the voice mail greeting of Cherry Bomb’s sole artist and operator, Patrick Cornolo, who has had to deal with a lot of big changes this year. Located on the second floor of a building that also houses art studios and galleries, this “one-man operation” was founded in 1999 by Kim Saigh, of L.A. Ink fame. The two shared the space until May of this year, when Saigh handed the reins over to Cornolo so she could focus on her work in Los Angeles. While Cornolo explains that he and Saigh knew each other “from around” (their most direct link was through Deluxe Tattoo’s Ben Wahhh), it wasn’t until Saigh began working on Cornolo’s right arm that the two really formed a friendship. When Saigh opened her own studio, Cornolo approached her about teaming up. “I was like, ‘Hey. You have an extra room…’” he explains of his partnership pitch to Saigh. The rest is history. “Kim and I wanted a place where we could work on custom and large pieces without being interrupted by walk-ins,” Cornolo explains about the appointment-only policy at the establishment. The off-the-beaten-path locale was also a conscious choice. “People really need to know where they are going,” Cornolo says. This ensures that the clients who walk into the shop are there because they really want a tattoo from him. “I think that’s pretty cool,” says a humble-sounding Cornolo.

While they don’t serve any draft beer (just bottles), the decor (think tables made out of old tail pipes) and the scene are so engaging, you’ll hardly even notice.

SPEND: Quimby’s Book Store, 1854 W. North Ave., 773-342-0910. Carrying everything from art books and contemporary fiction to vintage erotica and “hip lit,” you’re sure to find your personal reading pleasure at this bookshop.

  1. It seems compact, however it just isn’t: FIFA 14 includes a mass
    of choices, strategies and management screens.
    FIFA ultimate team is a unique game format and I like the FIFA ultimate team’s chemistry feature because it doesn’t allow one player to be a god and every one that can’t
    afford him get flogged game after game. The previous week has
    witnessed the annual Wreck Beach Bare Buns Run, the PGA Championship,
    the New York Red Bulls, the FIS Summer Grand Prix, the World Badminton
    Championships, and the friendly football match between
    Scotland and Denmark and so on.

Biden didn’t assist the situation of stability round the world by taunting the extremists by stating his line “Osama bin Ladin is dead and GM is alive!”. This stating to receive votes just obtained individuals hurt and killed…that and 9/11…not some silly, terribly manufactured movie clip.

  16. I’m not sure why but this blog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  17. Firefox wont start but when I open a link that opens firefox, It works fine. What do I do?

  18. I believe that avoiding processed foods is the first step in order to lose weight. They could taste fine, but packaged foods contain very little vitamins and minerals, making you feed on more simply to have enough electricity to get through the day. When you are constantly feeding on these foods, switching to cereals and other complex carbohydrates will aid you to have more vigor while consuming less. Great blog post.

  19. I would also like to convey that most individuals who find themselves without health insurance can be students, self-employed and people who are unemployed. More than half from the uninsured are really under the age of Thirty five. They do not really feel they are wanting health insurance because they’re young plus healthy. The income is usually spent on homes, food, and also entertainment. Some people that do work either entire or part time are not provided insurance through their work so they head out without with the rising cost of health insurance in the states. Thanks for the strategies you discuss through this website.

  20. But wanna input that you have a very decent site, I love the design and style it actually stands out.

  21. The Ships’s Voyages

    I think know-how just causes it to be even worse. Now there is a channel to hardly ever care, now there wouldn’t be a possibility for them to find.

  22. The Absent Game

    Amongst me and my husband we have owned additional MP3 players over the years than I can count, together with Sansas, iRivers, iPods (typical & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players.
