Top Milwaukee tattoo artists Phil Constantineau, Brian Bielawski and Peter Bielawski, piercer Adam Rodriguez, and the best in subculture clothing can now be found at Ink 101 Tattoo Lounge, located at 240 N Milwaukee Street, Suite 101 in the Third Ward. The new, nearly 4,000-square-foot Milwaukee tattoo parlor is not only a great place to get inked and pierced, its theater lounge also makes it a great place to hang out and host parties.

“Our Downtown Milwaukee piercing and tattoo parlor offers much more than the best tattoo artists and a comfortable place to get a tattoo,” said store owner Alex Trevino. “We also offer body piercings and sell H2 Ocean tattoo and piercing aftercare products, custom handbags and other unique clothing.”

For those who want their feet to make a statement, Ink 101 offers Rick Murphy’s popular Illwalkees. These hand-painted shoes are custom designed to each customer’s desires. Murphy works with any type of leather shoes, from sneakers to pumps (sorry, synthetic materials won't hold the color). His paint is weather resistant and will hold up to normal wear and tear and gentle hand washing.

Murphy paints both customer-requested designs and his own original artwork. He then gives each pair its own custom name, like “Imaginary Friends” and “Cookies.” Murphy also paints skateboard decks and murals.

Somar Leathers handcrafts quality leather products, like custom handbags, clutches, purses, wallets, executive bags, luggage, briefcases, backpacks and belts. Somar offers a number of lines, including:

  • Exclusives – special order products not available in any other collection

  • Executive – special leathers specifically designed for the respected businessman or woman
  • Exotics – items made from alligator, crocodile, lizard, snake, ostrich, elephant, stingray, etc.
  • Classics – durable products made from hand-selected leathers
  • Favorites – best-selling products, distinctly modified for the changing seasons

Sullen is a collaborative art-driven lifestyle apparel brand that integrates like-minded subcultures. Co-owner Ryan Smith, a professional tattoo artist of over a dozen years, and some of the world’s other top tattoo artists, graffiti artists and painters create unique designs for culturally aware youth.

Hardnox Clothing was created by artist Aaron Fulcher who, along with partners Bob Judd and Don Burgess, created an underground clothing company with a loyal following. The guys say that their anti-established method is a “Refreshing Punch in the Face” to the mundane fashion scene, and that Hardnox Clothing Co. is for those who demand more than trend.
