Voted top 3 tattoo studios in Mississauga 2018 by www.ThreeBestRated.com

after 50 point inspection


After years of working for outdated shops and employers, Kelly Pain decided to open a shop that would better reflect his visions of the industry. Tired of the intimidating old fashioned shops, he was eager to revamp the attitudes, etiquette and image of tattoo shops. He needed a place that would reflect an open mind, and the diversity of the community.  



Struggling through an array of obstacles and tribulations in the pursuit for a new shop, alongside some of the youngest up and coming tattoo artists from all over the cultural spectrum, Pleasure & Pain Ink Tattoo and Piercing Studio was finally established in the heart of Mississauga.



“Ink for Heart” was another event we did where a tattoo/piercing marathon was organized to raise money for the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Ontario. We have also hosted a few parties at nightclubs to promote our presence in the entertainment scene.



A year after opening the shop, Pleasure and Pain ink Inc was selected amongst three other candidates to tattoo Chris Bosh, former captain of the Toronto Raptors for a documentary titled ‘First Ink’.



Other memorable clients include:

Actor Rob Archer from Lost Girl,

Toronto Argonaugts Defensive Player Jalil Carter,

Featured Canadian Artist Drake,

2-time IBF World Lightweight Champion, Steve Molitor. 

DJ Poet of the Black Eyed Peas, 

Danny Fernandes, 

T-RexXx of 1LOVETO, 

and a plethora of DJs, singers, rappers, rock band members and artists in the entertainment and artistic community.   



There is still a long way to go,

 & much more to overcome before our visions come into fruition, 

but without struggle and sacrifice, there is no appreciation.   

Without pain, there is no pleasure.
