We started strong here at Sunset, and we're getting stronger! And as we grow we're looking for a talented tattoo artist to join our exclusive team. Do you have what it takes to work for Sunset?
What we're looking for
If you're applying for the position then please read this.
We're considering experienced artists only. Absolutely no apprentices under any circumstances. Any applicants must have a solid portfolio of work and preferably a strong client base. If you're planning on moving to Auckland and don't have any clients, then don't worry, we'll still consider you, as long as you have the ability to build a base.
All styles are welcome! We already cover a wide range of styles here at Sunset, including traditional, Japanese, and Maori, so we are looking for an experienced tattoo artist to compliment and add to the range of styles that the shop provides.
