Jade Dragon Tattoo and Body Piercing:

Where Art Meets Skin

Jade Dragon is the “World’s Biggest” tattoo and piercing emporium and is Chicago’s cleanest and safest tattoo studio. Founded by legendary master tattoo artist, “Fat Joe” Scapin, Jade Dragon Tattoo opened in 1980 and quickly earned the reputation for being one of the cleanest studios in the state, especially during a time when the tattooing industry was unregulated.

“Fat Joe” made Jade Dragon the tattooing and piercing haven it is today and he is greatly missed after he passed away in 2007. His high standards for cleanliness and quality artwork live on today as Jade Dragon continues to dominate the greater Chicagoland tattoo industry.


We specialize in original artwork, including the creation of full and partial sleeves. Browse our thousands of styles, including Asian, Traditional, Tribal and more, inked on actual skin so you can visualize the result you seek.


Piercings are performed by our 6 trained and experienced piercers, who can assist you with selecting the right studs from our unique line of proprietary body jewelry. View our piercing gallery to check out our work!
