Googling an Auckland tattoo studio? You've found Sunset

Have you been thinking about getting a tattoo recently? Then you’ve landed on the right website.

Sunset Studio is a professional, clean and respected Auckland tattoo studio. We specialise in custom design skin art. We can design something unique that reflects your personal taste and will keep you happy for the rest of your life. But first of all … let’s make sure you want a tattoo!

Why get a tattoo?

A tattoo is a big deal, so maybe we should start with the reason why you should not get one. Don’t get a tattoo because you want to be cool or because you think it’s in fashion. Don’t get one because all your friends have one. Don’t get one because you want to express your undying affection for someone. You never know how long it will last (and laser removal is expensive and painful!)

Now, let’s consider why you should get a tattoo at Sunset Studios. If you want something that is unique and arty, if you want to express your individuality, and if you are over 18 and mature enough to handle the pain (that’s right, tattoos hurt), then you should call our Auckland tattoo studio right now. Because we love tattoos!

Why choose Sunset?

We take our profession very seriously, least of all our Health & Safety responsibilities. Getting inked in our Auckland tattoo studio is a safe experience. We practice the highest level of hygiene and meticulously adhere to the Auckland council Health & Safety guidelines.

History and location

In December 2014, after ten years of studying tattoo art around the world and in New Zealand's best tattoo studios, Tom McMillan opened his own Art studio together with his wife, well known NZ artist, Misery. The studio began as a private space for the pair to make art and tattoos, and has now grown into a busy art studio and tattoo shop. A year later their humble Auckland tattoo studio is now busier than ever. We pride ourselves on creating beautiful and bold tattoos to a professional standard and continue to share a huge passion for the craft of tattooing. We tattoo classic traditional pieces as well as custom work and are happy to tattoo flash straight off the wall too. We are also set up to take walk-in's most days.

The team

Tom McMillan has been tattooing for over 10 years and focuses on specializing in his own unique take on western traditional and Japanese tattoo styles. Tom switches easily between large-scale full body tattoos to palm size one-shot tattoos, and is always on the lookout for new, original design challenges.

Tristan Marler is of Te Rarawa descent, from the Hokianga in the far north. In 2014 he graduated from the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts institute with a diploma in Whakairo Rakau (traditional wood carving). Tristan is now tattooing full time, and specializes in Ta Moko, Blackwork, pattern work, geometric and dot-work tattoo styles.

Fabian Bidart hails from Chile, and has been tattooing in Auckland City since 2007. He specialises in western traditional tattooing.

Tattoo safety and hygiene at Sunset.

Hygiene is paramount when getting a tattoo, and we here at Sunset Tattoo take our responsibility very seriously. When selecting an Auckland tattoo studio you should make sure that they follow the strict Health & Safety guidelines of the Auckland council.

Sunset Tattoo is the Auckland tattoo studio you can trust. Coming to us for a tattoo is not only an enjoyable and stress-free experience, but a safe one. We practice the highest level of hygiene and meticulously adhere to the Auckland council Health & Safety guidelines. Our studio itself is spotless, never mind our needles!

How do we make our Auckland tattoo studio safe and sterile?

We always keep our tattoo accessories in the most sterile condition. Before we start working on your tattoo, our tattoo artist will disinfect and shave the area where you want your tattoo. We do this with disposable razors that we only use once. We will also show you the sealed tattoo needle and open the pouch in front of you. After we’re finished with your tattoo, we’ll throw the needle out. Each needles is only used once, and you can see this for yourself, putting your mind at rest.

It is likely that your skin will bleed a little when getting a tattoo. That’s why all our tattoo artists are wearing gloves throughout the entire tattooing process. It’s safer for you and for them. You could walk into a hospital and not notice the difference. That’s how clean and hygienic our Auckland tattoo studio is!
