Toltec Spirit Tattoo, circa 2017 is owned and operated by Dr. Allison Tait, DVM. Allison’s lifelong love of animals and nature has led her on a unique journey. After studying fine art, switching to Veterinary Medicine and running an animal hospital for 20 years, she felt the need to follow a more creative path and made the leap into Tattoo Art. Her background in art, fine surgical skills and knowledge of how to maintain a “clean field” helped to make a smooth transition and after an apprenticeship with a Guelph artist, she opened Toltec Spirit Tattoo in 2017.
Michelle first discovered her passion for painting when she attended the Art & Art History program at the University of Toronto. After graduating, she furthered her studies with Interpretive Illustration at Sheridan College and pursued commercial art for several years before solely concentrating on her love of oil painting.
