Hanging a Pot Rack into a concrete ceiling

I live in an older condo that has concrete ceilings. I want to hang a pot rack that requires large eye hooks to be installed in the ceiling. What should I use to put these eye hooks into the ceiling so the will hold correctly?

I am new to this forum and not sure this is the correct place to post this but any hints would really be helpful. Thanks!

First confirm you have the association's blessing, since this will be considered common ground (your ceiling, their floor).
You will need something substantial to hold it, since your fastener will be in the same plane as your stress.
There are a few manufacturers of this product, but I just googled and found one to give you an illustration as to what you may need. Go to http://www.contractorstoolsupply.com/anchoring-products-large-diameter-tapcon-ldt-anchor-c-3_38.html and see the type bolt I am talking about. You will probably need a 1/2 x 3". You will have to modify the chain with a larger diameter link to attach it to the 1/2" bolt.
