Owner/artist Kyle Berg named The Constable Tattoo Parlor as an homage to his grandfather, Gerald G. Berg, whose shop,…More The Constable, sold supplies to police stations in the Chicagoland area until 1990. According to Kyle’s website, www.constabletattoo.com, Grandpa Berg’s work ethic as a police-supply salesman and talent as an artist served as an inspiration for both the shop’s name, logo and reputation as a wholesome, drug-free, family-owned shop.
In addition to Berg, the shop features tattoo artists Brendan Heneghan, Lori Pecchia and Joe Chase, as well as body-piercer Jeff Clark. Although family members and friends are welcome to watch the shop’s talented artists at work, Heneghan said The Constable strictly adheres to state law, which specifies that anyone getting a tattoo must be 18 years of age or older. He recommends booking an appointment to allow sufficient time to choose the perfect tattoo – whether from a photo, by looking through artists’ portfolios or working with one of The Constable’s artists to create a one-of-a-kind design that will last a lifetime.
