Omar, a.k.a. (((oms (pronounced OHMS), has been tattooing professionally in Chicago for over 25 years, and with the help of his wife Cheri Basak, opened Revolution Tattoo in 2004.

Since 1994 Omar has been refining his craft while offering the proficient tattooing of many styles in demand. He prides himself in his versatility and cranks out black & grey photo-realism, illustrative blackwork, pet portraiture and graphic ornamental tribal inspired designs, as well as traditional Americana and Japanese inspired art. But he really enjoys tattooing black and grey realism, illustration and portraits. Oms prefers to work by appointment, but occasionally (very rarely) he has availability for walk ins or same day/next day appointments. It is advisable to email or call the shop to inquire regarding availability.

When he isn’t at Revolution Tattoo he likes drawring, vannin’, playing drums like a caveman, chugging huge doom riffs on pointy guitars through insanely loud tube amps, and traveling the world with his wife to see all of the Heavy Metal shows.
