Sunset welcomes Capilli Tupou and Ten Tigers Tattoo!

Sunset Tattoo is stoked to announce that the world famous Capilli Tupou will be working with us from now on.

Capilli has been working in New Zealand and all over the world for the past decade and will be running his own brand new studio from inside the Sunset Tattoo building!

Ten Tigers Tattoo

Welcome Ten Tigers Tattoo! Over the next year Capilli will be hosting plenty of amazing international guests, right here in Cross Street. Ten Tigers guarantees a clean environment, friendly atmosphere and quality workmanship. 

Capilli Tupou is an artist specialising in old school traditional style tattooing. As a New Zealander of Maori (Te Rarawa) and American Samoan heritage, Capilli brings his own unique Polynesian slant to the style.

Seeking a career change where he could use his creative abilities, Capilli began tattooing in 2008 and found himself a place with Two Hands Tattoo.

In 2011, Capilli took up an opportunity to join Sacred Tattoo , before returning to Two Hands Tattoo in late 2015.

A renowned and respected tattoo artist

Capilli’s work has been admired both within New Zealand and abroad, allowing him to work at some of the best studios around the world.

It is our genuine pleasure to welcome him to Sunset, and we look forward to seeing some of his amazing work in the coming months.
