about us


Slick Styled Steel is by no means a rookie when it comes to the piercing and tattoo game in Montreal. Established in 1999, Slick set up shop on St-Laurent Boulevard; the very first of its kind on the main. Shortly after, a second location was opened in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, and it has since been an icon on the boardwalk. As time went on, the shop’s reputation grew and by 2003, a bigger downtown location was needed to fulfill the growing demand.
Slick Styled Steel remained on St-Laurent, but moved to a bigger shop. The shop was built from the ground up by Slick himself, allowing for significant improvements in the quality of experience customers were getting. In 2007, the shop moved to its current downtown location on Ste-Catherine Street. This third build allowed for further customization and the possibility of raising the bar once more in the name of sterilization and quality. The shop has also maintained an untarnished reputation when it comes to their staff. At Slicks, you will find that the staff is modest, passionate, and friendly when it comes to their trade.



Slick (you may know him as Rich!) began his piercing career in Daytona Beach, Florida in the early 1990’s when the piercing trend swept America. He apprenticed under Paul Merk of Florida’s famous The Corner (est. 1992). He returned to Montreal in 1999 to share his experience and since, has established a soundly respected legacy.
