Two tattoo artists



Each of our tattoo studios in Kitchener-Waterloo, Brantford, London, Barrie, and Banffhouse an impressive roster of

tattoo artists, each bringing their own unique style and

approach to the table.


With this kind of versatility, we’re sure you’ll find an artist that will be able to

work with you to bring your tattoo ideas to life.


If you’re unsure, our staff will gladly help to find the right artist for you.

We also offer free consultations, which gives you the opportunity to sit down

with an artist and discuss your ideas, pricing, placement, etc.

We’re committed to constantly improving our craft.



You must be 18 years of age to get tattooed without parental consent, and you’ll be asked to provide valid government photo ID.


If you’re under 18, you’ll be required to have both a parent present and valid government photo ID for each of you. That being said, we have the right to refuse service even with parental consent. These decisions are always made with your best interest in mind.

Before getting tattooed, you will be required to fill out a consent from. This is for legal purposes, and informs us of any medical concerns that could impact the healing of your tattoo. Your artist will then discuss the procedure and design with you, and when all paperwork and design details are finalized, you will be prepped in a private room. This will include cleaning (and sometimes shaving) the area to be tattooed. In most cases, a stencil is then applied to be sure the placement is what you are looking for. Once completed, the tattoo will be cleaned and bandaged, and aftercare instructions will be given. It’s always best to listen to your artist and follow their instructions, as they truly know what's best. In some cases, tattoos will be completed in multiple sittings (typically for larger pieces like sleeves or back pieces), and in this scenario, the tattoo from the first sitting must be fully healed (min. 2 weeks) before a second sitting can take place.



Our Commitment to Health and Hygiene in Tattooing


Each Perfect Image tattoo shop adheres strictly to the health standards set by their respective regional health units across Kitchener-Waterloo, Brantford, London, Barrie, and Banff, ensuring a safe and professional environment for both clients and tattoo artists.


Your tattoo artist has been thoroughly trained to take all necessary precautions to protect you as well as themselves. Sterile single-use gloves are worn by the tattoo artist. During each tattoo session, your tattoo artist will open a new package of sterile needles in front of you that they will use. Any other disposable instruments or supplies that will be used during the session will be both new and sterile, again being opened in front of you before use.


Each session will use fresh ink poured into disposable containers which are discarded after each client. Also, all areas which may be touched with contaminated gloves will be wrapped in clear plastic to prevent cross-contamination. Equipment that cannot be autoclaved (such as counter tops, machines, and furniture) will be wiped with a hospital-strength germicidal disinfectant. Before any tattooing begins, we also ensure that the area on your body where the tattoo will be applied is shaved (if necessary) using a disposable one-time-use razor and then disinfected. Each studio is equipped with bio hazard containers for objects that have come into contact with blood or bodily fluids and sharps containers for used needles.

Tattoo Aftercare

Tattoo Aftercare


There are some risks associated with existing heath conditions that may cause allergic reactions or infection. These can be minimized by taking proper care of your tattoo exactly as directed by your tattoo artist.


It is recommended that persons with diabetes, hemophilia, any auto-immune disorder, persons taking blood thinning medications, recipients of organ/bone marroe transplants or persons with other medical or skin conditions that may hinder the healing process should consult your doctor before getting tattooed.


It is also advised that you inform your tattoo artist of any metal allergies or allergies to certain healing agents that could be found in aftercare.


Women who are pregnant or nursing will be refused so as to allow the appropriate attention the body requires for the demanding and complex task it is already performing.




"I’ve been to this shop on numerous occasions and cannot say enough great things about them. Starting off, this is an LGBTQ+ safe space, I’ve never felt uncomfortable going into this place of business. Everyone is super friendly and knowledgeable, every tattoo artist I’ve seen in there has been a dream to work with. Their piercers are also extremely nice and will walk you through everything before the piercing starts. Always have a fantastic experience here."

"I've come here for multiple tattoos and piercings and I always leave happy! The staff is always polite, friendly and professional, and the artists are very talented. I love the atmosphere, it's clean and 100% passes the vibe check. I always recommend Perfect Image to others and will definitely be returning in the future"

"I LOVED MY EXPERIENCE!! I have been wanting this piercing for ages, and I was not disappointed. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful with all my questions. It was such a great experience that I went back two more times that month. Once more for me and once for my husband. I highly recommend them."


Tanya S.


"I finally ventured forth and tried a new tattoo shop after getting my first 8 at a different place and was not disappointed. Every single staff member who I interacted with during the walk-in was lovely, and the artist who did my tattoo was stellar. He helped me set reasonable expectations of what to expect and helped me find a compromise on my original idea so that it would hold up and better fit the space. He made me feel comfortable the entire time I was in the chair and I am extremely happy with the quality of work that he did for me today, simple though it is. I will definitely be back!"

"Absolutely amazing service! I've gotten 6 of my piercings done there and they’ve all healed amazing. Definitely the perfect place to go for piercings! The piercer always calms me down and makes me feel so much more comfortable."

"Went here to get my ears pierced, and it was honestly the best experience ever. The staff was really friendly and nice to speak to. The place itself was really clean, which was a bonus. The person who pierced my ears helped ease my nerves and took the time to make sure I was happy with the placement of the piercing and everything as well. Overall, a wonderful experience!"


Mahtash N.



"This location is very clean and professional. I got 3 piercings in one sitting and ended up feeling lightheaded, my piercer was extremely gentle, kind and understanding, and let me take all the time I needed before we finished up. My piercings look great and are healing perfectly. I definitely will recommend this location to anyone else and will be coming back for more!"

"Amazing service, friendly employees, good atmosphere and super clean. Been a multi-time customer for piercings and a tattoo and it was a better experience than most places I’ve been to."




"I've had two piercings done here (conch and helix) and they were both incredibly quick, professional, and painless. It's been a little over 3 months now and they're healing wonderfully. Very nice staff, very clean work stations. Would highly recommend :)"


Grace L.


"Absolutely love Perfect Image! Great vibes here and the staff are very skilled, talented, super friendly and awesome! I got my ears pierced a few years ago (and they were great - very helpful when I was anxious). Recently also had my first tattoo here and the experience very good. Quality people here! Would highly recommend their services!"
