Best tattoo shop: No Regrets Tattoos

By Cecilia Milmoe, Features Editor

For many, tattoos are an important part of self-expression. Whether they are small or large, tattoos are a great way to stand out, and No Regrets Tattoos has been deemed the best place to get one in Champaign-Urbana.

Located on 117 W. Church St. in Champaign, No Regrets Tattoos has been putting art on people’s bodies since it opened in 2006. Unlike many other tattoo shops, which require appointments for tattoos, No Regrets Tattoos opens its doors for walk-ins, allowing anyone to get a tattoo or a piercing whenever they want. This business model, along with the quality of the artists’ work, has made No Regrets Tattoos stand out from the rest.

Matt Stines, the owner of No Regrets Tattoos and a tattoo artist, said the shop makes sure customers are in a comfortable environment.

“We’ve got that type of longevity of experience behind our shop and people trust that they can come in and feel comfortable,” Stines said. “It’s a safe environment. We’ve always held the highest standards of health with the health department, and we’ve always kept a clean, safe place that you can get quality work.”

No Regrets Tattoos opens its doors from noon to 10 p.m. every day of the week, meaning that customers can easily fit the time in their busy schedules to get beautiful artwork on their bodies.
