COLD AS ICE TATTOOS
NOW OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK!
Cold As Ice Tattoos was created in Chicago in 2002 and is the brainchild of owner, Dee Thompson. As a self-taught tattoo artist he established himself by working in various shops on the South Side of Chicago. Building a brand and creating a skilled team was always in his plans as Dee continued the grind to open his own shop. While working at a shop in the Bronzeville/Grand Boulevard area, he began schooling his new apprentice that would later become reality TV star Van Johnson about tattooing.
In 2009, the duo linked up to open a tattoo studio in Lacuna Lofts, together Dee and Van rode the wave of success as the vision of having a shop to call home was realized. Eventually the two would go their separate ways to pursue other opportunities but their tattoo bond still remained. Recently the two linked back up to give it a second go around. The two became co-owners of Cold As Ice Tattoos and they're back where it all began.
Today you can find Dee wearing many hats from owner, manager, entrepreneur to tattoo artist, father, husband and mentor. His partner Van can be seen regularly on VH1's Black Ink Crew Chicago, he is an entrepreneur, co-owner, reality star, tattoo artist, father and has a host of fans.
Cold As Ice Tattoos aims to be more than a local tattoo shop but a staple in the community and creates ways to give back to those in need of support. Both owners look forward to endless success, continued growth, and a brand that stands the test of time.
