Tattoos + Fine Art

Hi All! I'm Amy Porter and I've been tattooing since 2015! I love anime, kawaii, botanical, and cat portrait tattoos!
I'm the founder of Alchemy Tattoo & Gallery located in Elgin, IL
Our mission at Alchemy:
"Our goal is to provide a safe, beautiful, and professional environment for our art collectors. All bodies are welcome in this judgement free, LGBTQ, and body positive tattoo studio near Chicago. Whether patrons are collecting body art or fine art, we seek to provide a unique, inclusive experience. Alchemy blends the curation of body art with modern safety standards, always striving to exceed expectations. We aim to bring vision to reality for our patrons through communication and understanding."
It's always been my goal to find a space where my clients could comfortably collect tattoos. The space I envisioned didn't exist so I created it.
I opened a private studio in 2020 called Alchemy Tattoo & Gallery. Through lots of hard work I expanded Alchemy in 2022 to house 4 artists and welcomes traveling guest artists from across the nation.
I'm lucky to work alongside talented artists that continuously inspire me.
Tattoo appointment take place in a licensed privately owned tattoo studio. No open floor plans provide a comfortable experience.
Each tattoo is uniquely designed to suit a client's needs. With a focus on large body work, Amy seeks to create unity amongst her clients art collection.
