We will be changing our shop hours as of February 1st, 2014. Our new studio hours for tattoo and piercing are as follows:

Monday-Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Sundays 12:00 p.m. to 5 p.m.


Due to a couple of recent concern-causing incidents we, at I-Kandy, have changed our policy regarding children in the studio.

-NO children under the age of 7 are allowed in the studio.

-During your tattoo and/or  piercing session, please do not bring your children.

We regret having to make this change, but feel that it is best for all concerned.

If you have any questions regarding this; or any of our studio policies – please call us at 604-532-1188.

Thanks everyone.

Hello, on Saturday the 12th I got a monroe piercing done by Mihela, & I just wanted to say I was really impressed by her knowledge & her kindness. She was very friendly, & she did really well in helping me to relax before the piercing. All in all; I left very  impressed, even by the friendliness of the reception staff, who were patient with me with my lack of knowledge on the piercing names aha. You guys are great!    -Hannah H.
