Tattoo artists

ALL of our tattooists are talented artists who are constantly adding to their artistic portfolios (whenever time in a busy studio permits!)  They each have original and prints of most pieces available for purchase from the studio and they regularly feature their work in their social media accounts (links below)…

Andre Simpson has been tattooing since 2007 in Christchurch, and he has worked in Sydney, Melbourne and here in Wellington. Andre’s capable of executing a broad range of tattoo styles, specialising in neo-traditional and classical traditional custom pieces, as well as photo realism and pop-culture pieces.

Interpreting and bringing your ideas to life in a unique one of a kind piece tailored to your needs is what he strives to achieve.

Bree Collins is our junior tattooist whose artistic talents are already highly sought after.  She can draw just about anything.  Her styles include pop-art, geometry, insects and mandalas and she’s working on enhancing her photo realism skills to be able to tattoo in that style.

Bree draws extensively on her life experiences to bring empathy and understanding to her clients.  She’s an old soul with a fantastic sense of humour.
