Established in 1999, Cottage 13 remains one of the most reputable tattoo and piercing studios in Hamilton, Ontario and beyond. 

We are dedicated to providing a superior level of tattoo and piercing services in a clean, comfortable setting using only the best quality equipment and products. 

All of our tattooers have years of experience and are professional and personable.  Although each artist has their own unique style, they are all versatile and capable of executing almost any design.  We encourage you to take the time to look through each portfolio and choose a tattooer to approach about your design.  If you are unsure who to choose, you can be rest assured that all of them are capable of doing an outstanding job.

Our studio is inspected by the Hamilton Health Dept. bi-annually and we continue to have a great relationship with our Health Inspector.  We adhere strictly to health standards and implement protocols that exceed Health Board requirements.  Our sterilizer is only used for piercing equipment and jewellery and it is spore tested every 2 weeks to ensure its efficacy.  All tattoos are done using disposable equipment (both needles and tubes) and although we implement a small fee to cover our costs, it is with your health and safety in mind.

Everyone working at Cottage 13 has had training in Infection Control relevant to our industry and we are all very mindful of maintaining a clean and safe place for us to work and for you to get work done.

Our reputation speaks for itself, but so does the amazing body art we create.  You have only to ask around and you will hear Cottage 13 mentioned again and again as the only place to go for your piercings and tattoos.  So whether you are after some new ink, a new piercing or beautiful, high quality jewellery, we can’t wait to see you and provide you with a positive experience you will be sure to remember forever.  Hope to see you soon...!
