I took advantage of the $24 Monday piercings. Surgical steel jewelry is included in this price. You can pay extra for jewelry upgrades. I went around 6:30pm, the wait was around an hour, with a long lineup, so go early!

The studio is located upstairs, there is seating in the waiting area. You can fill out a form then return later to get your piercing if you like.

The actual piercing experience was great, the piercer was very nice, and  professional even at the end of the day. It was one of the most painless piercings I’ve had, with sanitary processes. (I’ve had a ton of piercings and let me tell you this piercer was truly skilled and amazing).

Prices after tax and tip around $32, they accept cash and card. If you leave a review you can choose some free jewelry. [Eileen Lau]

We did ears lobe piercings for my daughter today and she was so excited and a bit scary, but Moha was so nice, professional. She did the procedure quickly,  calm her down and explained us how to take care of ears. After couple days almost no pain and discomfort.[Anna Kovalchuk]

Moha is a great artist. She is considerate of your needs and takes her time to make you feel comfortable with your tattoo. She does exceptional fine line work. Additionally, her partner is very pleasant and supportive. Moha’s studio is very clean and comfortable. Thanks for the great tattoo! [Bilal & Maha]

Client Reviews

It was my first time getting tattooed. The staff was very helpful and friendly, I had my councelling for tattoo design with Alex, I showed him few references and gave him my idea of tattoo and within 24 Hrs he provided me uniques sketches for go ahead.

Alex is super talented, he keeps you indulge in conversations and diverts your mind away from pain, extremely calm and has a strong attention to detailings. He will also provide you the instructions and after care.

The appointment booking part is also easy going.

I would definitely recommend Alex and steel N ink fo [Bharat Datwani]

Rachel at Steel and Ink was SO amazing!  I came in to look at some jewellery today and didn’t intend to buy right away.   She was so kind and was so helpful with choosing a piece – I ended up splurging and changing out two piercings which she helped me pick.

I’ve been to a few “well known” piercing and tattoo spots, and I was not met with kindness like I was with Rachel today.   She also took a look at my friend’s piercing who thought had an infection.

The space was so clean, and so aesthetically pleasing.

I will definitely be back for more jewellery pieces and piercings.  THANK YOU! [Kim Rose S]

Great customer service, professionalism and expertise.   I’ve had many piercings ‘reject’ but not the piercings I’ve had done at Steel n Ink Don Mills.  They will be honest and let you know if a part of your anatomy is not suitable for a particular piercing.  This I appreciate immensely. [Dinah Kagan]

Such a nice guy to talk to as well. Had a great time. [Abhishek Srivastava]

OKAY, I’m super stoked because I just finished not long ago with Alina, but if I could have gotten her to do all my tats I would. Definitely gonna come back in the future! The experience was sweet, she was a fun chat! and the atmosphere was friendly and calm 🥺♥️ Thanks so much guys. … [tina baby]

I got my tattoo done here by Dmitriy, and I must say he did a fantastic job! I now have my little boy attached to me always ! I definitely recommend this place ! Such great work done !

Thank you again !![Carly Lynn Torraville]

My tattoo by Alina is one of my favourites I’ve ever gotten, she is so dedicated to perfection and her talent is really exceptional. I also got my ear pierced and received excellent care, they have a good selection of jewelry as well. Their sanitary practices are the best I’ve ever seen, having gone to 5+ studios over the years, they show you all of the equipment they’re using and show all the needles are sealed and not expired, which I really appreciated. This studio is truly a diamond in the rough, outclassing some of the other well-known tattoo shops I’ve been to.[K]

Client Reviews

From the moment I stepped into North York Ink and met Ben Chen and the team, I knew I had chosen the right place. From our very first consultation, Ben took his time to incorporate my ideas for a very specific design. His professionalism and attention to detail made the process smooth and efficient. I ended up spending 20 hours over 6 months with Ben to complete my leg sleeve. To say he did an amazing job would have would be a huge understatement. Ben’s artistry and detail in his work have been the greatest compliment I’ve received about my piece. The studio at North York Ink is impeccably clean and the service from all staff makes this location our neighborhood go-to for tattoos and piercings. Thanks for a great experience! [Tiffany Chan]

Had my first tattoo with North York Ink from Ben 3 years ago with my partner, and the experience was so great that I went back for a second one the next year. My partner also revisited and had his front arm wrapped. Ben sure is a great artist, he was very patient throughout the process from consulting and drafting to ensure he understands how we want the art pieces with every little detail while giving professional advices. Ben’s creativity with his designs and expertise made his tattoo artworks just perfect! The shop is nice and neat with a pleasant ambience. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a place to get your next tatt 🙂 [Q L]

Great place to get your next tattoo!

I’ve gotten 3 tattoos done here (one inner arm, 1 thigh and then 1 glute that connected to the thigh piece) all of which were done by Ed, he’s an amazingly talented artist, super friendly and really takes your wants into consideration when creating your tattoo!

The studio itself is very clean, and everyone there is always friendly. [Breanna]

My favourite place to get tattooed ever!! The vibes here are so chill and fun, everyone is super nice. I’ve gotten two of my tattoos by Giti and I absolutely love her. I followed her from colibri Danforth tattoo. She’s a one of a kind artist!! Super sweet and responsive on dms. Every tattoo she does is better than you can imagine!! My forever favourite tattoo artist and place! 💗 [Rachel F]

I don’t think I’ve ever had a better experience at a tattoo shop ◡̈ I’ve had two tattoos so far both done by Marvin, he is so respectful with a gentle touch and such an efficient speed. I love my new body art and I can’t wait to go back for more!

The alien on my leg is his, and the other tattoo is in a more personal location or I’d share a photo 😅 [Natalie Brownell]

Such an awesome buzz the moment you enter. Conveniently located with ample parking just behind the store. Lots of natural light coming in the windows to fill the place if that matters to you. Awesome first experience and looking forward to many more.

Marvin is a wizard! Since my wife and I decided to get our first tattoo, we had a lot of apprehensions and reservations and in turn a bunch of questions. Not for once will you feel like you are stupid talking to Marvin. Such a personality, you will have the most amazing conversations about life and experiences. He knows his trade well! He quickly caught on to our vibe and helped us work with him on the designs. He will take his time with you. And until you are completely satisfied he won’t start. He’s made me and my wife fall in love with our first pieces and oh boy! we have already started planning our next. So if you’re also thinking of getting your first one, don’t be shy, come in and say hi!

Thanks a lot Colibri and Marvin!! [Rajdeep Bose]

Calvin’s skills at Unit5 are simply outstanding!

His professionalism and attention to detail always exceeded my expectations. The shop’s inviting atmosphere and the friendly couple makes the experience fantastic.

I highly recommend Calvin & Fran for their expertise and the exceptional services provided. [Bhagath M.R]

Super friendly and welcoming environment. Extremely hygienic! I have never had my hair cut but I have bought jewellery and got my ears pierced and it was for sure the best experience I had. My hubbygets his hair cut about every other month and always leaves looking like a new man! Would recommend to anyone looking for piercings and haircuts! [Brittany Middleton]

I’ve known Calvin for over 12 years. He has consistently evolved as a barber. Hands down the most professional experience I’ve had in 37 years of getting hair cuts. I’ve referred friends and family and then they’ve done the same. Customer focused, generous and has a very detailed eye. If this is the first time you’ve considered using a barber or if you have a long standing relationship with one and you’re looking for a change. I STRONGLY suggest checking out The Unit 5 Studio.
