Have an idea of what you want

We have an extensive library of tattoo styles and designs from around the world, organized by subject and category, take your time and have a look through them or browse online: a good source of tattoo art is the website Tumblr.

Bring a print out or photo on your phone

Or email us contact@tat2.co.nz an image of a similar tattoo you like. We never copy a tattoo but it can help speed up the process of creating your own tattoo if you can show us what style you like.

Tell our tattooists

Remember a tattoo is permanent, we don’t want to give you something you aren’t 100% satisfied with but can only go by what you tell us so don’t leave out any detail.

Still aren’t sure?

If you aren’t sure, our tattooists are happy to chat about possibilities and show you examples.
