3129 W. Logan Blvd has been our home for six years, and it has been a truly special place for us to cultivate our work, a thriving artistic community, and provide a unique space for clients to be tattooed.  We are heartbroken to leave the prettiest storefront in Logan Square, but with all endings come new, exciting beginnings.

As a result of losing our lease, we are taking this bittersweet end as a huge opportunity -  while we both will be pursuing our individual travels, we will be hosting pop-up events around the country and beyond, intersecting to bring the full Butterfat experience to beautiful new spaces and places in 2017.

In these last few months we will be hosting events, posting the last of our projects, and tattooing our asses off.  We are only two people, so if you haven't had the opportunity to work with us yet, this isn't the end of your chance, for now or the future.  If you have unfinished work from us, now would be a good time to reach out to get on the schedule during our last few months in the space.  For new clients, the short-term projects we post on our Instagram accounts are still the most reliable way to get an appointment. Chicago is still home for now, so keep an eye on our individual Instagram accounts for updates on our future plans. If you haven't already, please sign up for our mailing list to keep abreast of updates through these next hectic months and beyond.  

We are so grateful for our amazing clients who have made the space a special place to work, and share - and couldn't be more excited for what the future holds.  Thank you for all your continued support, so long, and thanks for all the fish.
