Umbrella Ink Tattoo and Fine Art was established in early 2008, and was built from the ground up to serve a need in Northwest Indiana for serious custom ink in a fun and safe environment. Our team at Umbrella Ink could best be described as a loving family, waiting to serve and share our talent with you.

Our studio is clean and professional – a top of the line medical-grade clean-room ensures you a sterile, clean tattoo, every time. ALL OF the Umbrella Ink team are trained and certified in accordance with the local and state regulated blood-borne pathogen statutes, and continue to keep up to date with autoclave maintenance and spore count monitoring system through “Confirm Monitoring System” as recommended by the Center for Disease Control. Umbrella Ink uses brand-new, single-use needles, and is meticulous about the upkeep of our very serious tattoo machines. From the bathrooms, the hygiene of our artists, to the tattooing studio, Umbrella Ink is CLEAN.

The artwork that adorns Umbrella Inks walls are like little adjectives, describing our tattooists. From a nod to tradition in classic framed flash, odd puppets, and custom skateboards, and of course, original art by our artists and friends—Umbrella Ink is an experience in tattooing. We want to encourage you to look around, explore– let us give you the custom tattoo as rich as if we plucked it from your dreams. Bring us your idea, your story and we will draw up what you have always wanted. For your skin– forever.

We stand by our work, we want you to be happy and loyal, because we are happy and loyal to you. We offer free touch-ups for the life of your Umbrella Ink Tattoo.

From custom cover-ups, little scripts mapping the story of your life, to elaborate sleeves and back pieces—Umbrella Ink has got you covered.
