THE TELL TALE HEART is a one-of-a-kind, high-end custom tattoo studio and fine art gallery, located on historic Brant Street in downtown Burlington, just a few steps from City Hall. Opened in March 2016 by veteran tattoo artist Shane Faulkner and filmmaker Jovanka Vuckovic, THE TELL TALE HEART takes its name from the famous Edgar Allan Poe short story, and is the culmination of the founders’ combined lifelong passions for tattooing, film, art and literature. We welcome you to visit our spectacular space to view rotating museum quality collections, buy fine art by world renowned artists, or book an appointment for your dream custom tattoo with one of our exceptional tattooers. All of our artists are by appointment only and usually booked a few months out, but we also accept walk-ins. Subscribe to our mailing list to receive announcements about our special events! (Sorry, we do not do piercing.) Street parking is free on weekends downtown, so pay us a visit. We look forward to making a great impression.
