It's that time of year again! The NZ Tattoo & Arts festival is back!

It’s that time of year again! The Southern Hemisphere’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 in November, with Live music from Deadbeat & Bleeders, FMX & BMX shows, live performances, art & much more. 

This year’s festival will be held on the weekend of 23rd-24th November 2019 at the TSB Stadium.


We will all be heading down to New Plymouth again this year to join in the fun.

If you would like to get in with one of our artists or special guests you can contact us or message them directly ! @habbytattoo @adrian_hing_tattoo @capillitupou @manawa_tapu @luckyfelixtattoo @rogermoore_tattoo

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 will go on sale soon and 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 9th 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!
