“Estelle did my first tattoo and it’s beautiful! She put a patch over it that I leave on for many days so it’s very easy after care. Parking is easy to find, yes they only take cash or email transfer. Estelle did it free hand and then added in the stencil blooms. Love it :)” – Christina C

“I have been to several tattoo spots prior to visiting Chronic Ink and was completely blown away by the level of service, friendly staff and quality of the available artists. The staff was so attentive to my questions and showed patience and understanding while answering them. Tommy, my artist, was an expert and I really felt that he listened to me and exceeded my expectations with the quality of his work. I have not stopped raving about Chronic Ink since I started getting work done here, referring people here and I am currently in the process of booking my next tattoo with one of their amazing artists! Highly recommended!” – Paolo De Ciantis

Fourth on the list is Tattoo People. Their story goes back many years to Seoul, South Korea when the owner, Khan J, opened his first studio in the heart of Hongdae. Shortly after, he opened a second studio in his hometown, Busan. At that time, tattooing was still very underground and not accepted by the general population of the country. Although the world of tattooing has opened up tremendously, it still remains illegal in South Korea. After meeting his wife, the pair decided to make the big move to Canada and opened Tattoo People Toronto in June 2014.

“I just wanted to give a big shout out to Justine (@justinemaediaz)!! I got a couple of tattoos from her and I’m very satisfied with how they all turned out. Her work is incredible and she has her own unique style. If you have your own design ideas, she’s very attentive to details and really cares about what you want. OH ALSO, I would really recommend getting one of her flashes, they’re such cool designs. 💕✨” – Chae-young Park
