About us

Painful Pleasures was founded in 1999 with the goal to provide the widest variety of tattoo supplies, piercing supplies, and body jewelry in the world. Over the past 14 years, the Painful Pleasures brand and vision have evolved as we've worked towards that goal. Meant to be a one-stop shop for Tattoo Artists and Piercers as well as the leading provider of body jewelry with the largest selection available online, Painful Pleasures now offers more than 8,000 products with over a million variations and strives to provide the best customer service in the industry.

Here's the Painful Pleasures' vision:

PainfulPleasures.com will be the go-to online store for:

  • Tattoo Artists and Piercers around the world who are continuing to branch out and looking for the most innovative and widest selection of tools in the industry
  • People exploring the world of piercings and tattoos who are looking for the widest selection of body jewelry, aftercare products, and other solutions to meet their needs
  • Artists, Piercers, and the general public who want to buy from the store with the best selection and the best customer service

We believe that our customers' experience plays a large role in whether they will shop with us in the future. That's why we have put a lot of emphasis on making sure our items are delivered on time and we respond to every customer request. In order to do that, we keep our entire inventory at our warehouse in Hanover, MD, and keep our stock and inventory updated.

Painful Pleasures looks forward to the future and evolution of the tattoo and body piercing industry, and to providing our customers with the best product selection and customer service
