Gone but never forgotten. The late great Tattoo Tom Berkes. My Brother, my Mentor, My friend. Tha...

Amazing service. Rich did an amazing job and the price was the lowest I’ve seen around. I couldn’t be more happier. Definitely telling everyone to go to him!

He's straight up old school honest business owner and provides honest opinions and ideas. My go to for work from now on.

About us

Hello friends, Rich here from Fantasy tattoo Studio. Thanks for stopping by my page. I have owned and operated Fantasy Tattoo since February of 1992, starting at our location on Lejeune Blvd where we stayed for 26 years. We moved to our current location at 233-A western Blvd. on Nov 10th 2017.

 A little about me , I was mentored by the late great Tattoo Tom Berkes at the Imperial World of Underground Tattooing in Cicero Il., back in the mid 1980’s. He taught me to offer my clientele a fair deal on quality tattooing. This is the standard by which I still run my shop by today. 

  We are open most every afternoon for all your tattooing and piercing needs. Please pop on by some time and check us out or call us at 910-353-2288. Remember folks, it is absolutely free to stop by and have a chat with us and tell us and let us know what you are looking for.  We have a variety of tattoos to choose from or we can draw up the idea you have.  

“Don’t worry if it is your first tattoo Its not mine.” 
 Thanks all, Rich
