The New Zealand Tattoo & Art Festival is back next month!

It’s that time of year again! Australasia’s biggest tattoo event is back!

Featuring over 300 of the world’s best artists, the NZ Tattoo & Art Festival, will be held in New Plymouth next month, with highlights including Ink Master stars Ryan Ashley Malarkey & Nikki Simpson, Dan Smith from LA Ink, Steve Butcher, FMX & BMX shows, live music, live performances, art & much more.

This year’s festival will be held on the weekend of 24th-25th November at the TSB Stadium.

And of course Sunset will be there!

Tom Tom, Tristian, Capilli, Milky and Magali Corpus will all be heading down to join in the fun.

You can get tattooed at the festival by either pre-booking an appointment via email/message or get a walk up booking.

Appointments are to be booked directly with the artists, make sure you include plenty of information in your email/message about what you want tattooed, size of tattoo, where on the body etc.

A large number of artists will be doing walk up tattoo appointments all weekend long. Tickets can be purchased from or at the Ticketek box at the gate during the festival weekend.

And remember, the NZ Tattoo & Art Festival is a family friendly event, so bring the kids along! Alongside tattooing there is FMX & BMX shows plus a dedicated kid zone area. Kids 14 & under get in free when accompanied by a paying adult.

This is the 8th year of the Festival, and it’s only getting bigger each year! Come along for the fun and maybe grab yourself a tattoo while you’re there!
