Part arcane mystic, part tattooer, and 100% metal, Omar, a.k.a. oms (pronounced OHMS), has been tattooing in Chicago for over 20 years, and with the help of his wife Cheri Basak, opened Revolution Tattoo in 2004.

Since then, Omar has been refining his finely detailed style while offering the proficient tattooing of many other styles in demand. oMs prides him self in his versatility and cranks out bright bold and colorful illustrative pieces, as well as black & grey photo-realism, neo-polynesian tribal, reproduction of fine art paintings as well as traditional Americana, but he really likes to tattoo black and grey realism and portraits.

When he isn’t at Revolution Tattoo (which is rare), he likes drawring, vannin’, playing pointy guitars through ungodly loud tube amps, and traveling the world with his wife to see the ultimate Metal festival.
