Luxury Meets the Tattoo Shop - Chic Ink Boutique

Share Article

Chic Ink Boutique has opened its first luxury tattoo shop in Scottsdale to cater to those looking for a high-end tattoo experience. Tattoo reality shows have catapulted the tattoo industry into a socially acceptable form of expression, and now Chic Ink has created an elegant and exquisite environment for all of those who have been waiting for just the right place to take that leap and get inked with the best tattoo.

Americans spend nearly $3 billion on tattoos each year, and that number continues to grow. The fastest growing segment of the industry is women ages 25-40. In fact, 2012 was the first year that more women than men got tattoos – a trend that continues. Influenced by beautiful, successful, and intelligent women such as Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, and Heidi Klum, all of whom have elegant tattoos, more and more women feel comfortable expressing themselves with tattoos.

Until now, the only choices for people interested in getting a tattoo were typically dark, out of the way, and often in less than ideal areas. And since the State of Arizona has no specific regulations for the tattoo industry, anyone with any background (or no background at all) can buy a tattoo machine and ink from anywhere and start tattooing. While there are many great tattoo artists who have built very successful businesses this way, there’s a rapidly growing number of clients who want a meaningful and elegant tattoo, but are unwilling or uncomfortable in that type of environment.

“I wanted to create a completely new and different tattoo experience for those wanting an exquisite tattoo, but were intimidated or uninterested in the current options available. Every detail of Chic Ink has been designed to offer the discriminating client a high-end, sophisticated, exceptionally clean, and pleasurable tattoo experience,” said Heather Schlueter, owner.

Heather’s background as an attorney and successful business owner opened doors to locations other tattoo establishments have been unable to penetrate. Located in the stylish 94 Hundred Shea complex, sitting between successful Scottsdale restaurants such as Stone and Vine and Ling and Louie’s has added to the ambiance of Chic Ink Boutique.

The location is just the beginning – clients enjoy espressos and lattés, bottled or sparkling water, and are introduced to the touchscreen design center, which is followed up by highly trained artists who consult with them at the custom made artists’ light table where they create one of a kind tattoos. Finally, the clients are escorted to the ultraclean and elegant tattoo stations where only the highest quality and best available equipment is used.

In addition to high quality tattoos, Chic Ink Boutique also offers permanent makeup application by expertly- trained and experienced artists. Customers seeking permanent eyeliner, eyebrows, lip liner, and full lip color now have a convenient and upscale salon-type of establishment at Chic Ink.

The opening of Chic Ink Boutique in Scottsdale will expand the ever-growing tattoo industry and has carved out a niche for those who want a completely different tattoo experience. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please visit
