The NZ Tattoo & Arts Festival is only 2 weeks away!

Just like Christmas, it seems to come round faster every year!

The Eighth Annual New Zealand Tattoo & Arts Festival will once again be held in New Plymouth, and once again Sunset Tattoo Studio will be attending.

The Festival

Featuring over 300 of the world’s best artists, the world-famous Festival will be held on the weekend of 24th-25th November at the TSB Stadium. Highlights include 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.

Sunset are of course heading down, with Tom Tom, Tristian, Capilli, Milky and Magali Corpus all representing Auckland’s best tattoo studio at the event.

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 Festival is in its eighth year, and it’s only getting bigger each year! Come along for the fun and say hello to the guys.
