After co-owning Enlightened Art Tattoos in Oakville for 5 years, Lila Way decided to make the move over to Burlington to do her own thing. She opened True Grit Tattoos on Brant St in the spring of 2009. 5 years were spent at that location and 4 have been at our current location of 480 Brant St.

The move to the current location has been quite a positive change, gearing us more towards a private studio and less like a typical street style shop. All artists have private tattooing rooms as the open concept of most shops can leave clients uncomfortable. We also have a day for private appointments only, so there is no coming and going traffic. Comfort is our goal, as well as beautiful artwork and a memorable experience.

The staff at True Grit Tattoos are well equipped to handle any and all styles of tattooing, as can be seen from the posted portfolios. To book with an artist please call the shop at 905 639 2949 and our wonderful counter staff will assist you.

Walk-ins welcome but cannot be guaranteed! Please call first to save the trip.


We are neatly tucked away at 480 Brant St #8. If you drive south down Brant St, you pass Caroline St and we are on the right hand side, DIRECTLY across from Smith’s Funeral Home and in the plaza with the Burro Restaurant. See you soon!!!
