Welcome to

our shop

Since opening in March 2016 on historic Brant Street in Burlington, Ontario, THE TELL TALE HEART is proud to have contributed to the local economy and quickly become a landmark, with visitors from all over Canada and the abroad making the trek every day to get a custom tattoo with one of our in-demand artists – many of whom were booked a year in advance.

We are proud to be winners of the Burlington Post Reader’s Choice Diamond Award for Best Tattoo Studio in 2018, 2019, 2021 and the Platinum Award in 2020. With the help of our friends and family, we built the shop with our bare hands, with the goal of making the place itself a work of art. Customers line up around the block on our Surprise Walk-In-Days for an opportunity to get a small tattoo from one of our fine artists.

In addition to Superior Custom Tattooing, we also contribute to the local arts scene by curating art shows that showcase the work of international artists including horror icon Clive Barker (Hellraiser), Hellboy’s Mike Mignola, dark artists Travis Louie, Chet Zar, Nat Jones (30 Days of Night), and many others.

For these efforts, we have been awarded the Platinum award for Best Art Gallery four years in a row. The place is a veritable museum, unlike any tattoo shop in the world. We are so proud to be Burlington’s #1 tattoo studio, and of the incredible tattoo art that comes out of it every day.

We think you’ll love it as much as we do, and we can’t wait to see you!
