As it so happens when Chris Hinkle, owner and founder of Piasa Body Art, first started in the tattoo industry it was not on his mind. Having always been artistic, it took some free time and a lot of shadowing the professionals in his home state of Ohio to bring him to his senses. Chris, learning the craft from the bottom up has given him the insight he needed to start his own business in 2008 and create Piasa in 2013.

How It All Began

Professionally, Chris and Piasa cover all genres of tattoo styling; you have a certain look and feel, they can do it. Have a drawing for an original or coverup, Chris can get it done. Being versatile on what his customers in the Alton, Illinois and surrounding area want has connected the old school of doing things with the new and innovative methods.


Giving the customers what they want has been Piasa Body Art’s hallmark. As always, Chris and his artists have given their customers many options when it comes to coverups which are their specialty. By giving his customers access to laser removal at one point, he has now connected with the next in Tattoo Coverup Evolution.


The Cutting Edge

As the latest Tattoo Studio to become a Tatt2Away Center, Piasa Body Art now has the most effective methods to remove and modify someone’s tattooos. Tatt2Away, a non-laser tattoo removal system, enable Chris to offer an additional (to coverup those unwanted tattoos) way to remove that bad tattoo with non-laser methods. The latest cutting edge in tattoo innovation that no one else in Alton has!

“By wearing all the hats when it comes to the tattoo business, the thing I enjoy most is the process of creating the art with my friends here in the community.”said Chris. And we at Tatt2Away couldn’t agree more!
