2017 in Auckland with Otautahi Tattoo

03 Jan 2017 in Auckland with Otautahi Tattoo

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year guys!! wow, 2016 is over and 2k17 is HERE!!
We’ve had an epic end to the year, we’ve had a good couple of days off over this break period and now we’re back at it for the year, ripping into 2017  with gusto and expecting some awesome stuff to come!

2017 is going to be an exciting time for us at Otautahi, not just here in Auckland, but across our three shops nationwide! We’ve got some exciting stuff in the pipelines with only room for more goodness to come! In Queentown we’ve had a space open up for a new artist to come on board, looking for a realism specialist in colour and black and grey, a big opportunity there! Christchurch is really taking off with the crew there getting tighter than ever, getting more established in the city  as a place to be! Here in Auckland we’ve got some exciting stuff with both apprentices Tae and Twigs stepping up and starting taking on full clients in the final journey before becoming full time artists!

Auckland is going to be a bit of a hub of activity in the coming days it seems with gigs and events running through January most evenings and thee is plenty to get out and do while you’re living up the last of your Christmas/New Year holidays!
Coming up top of the list here we’ve got the Jimi Hendrix tribute gig this friday 6th Jan, at Ascension Wine Estate, while Electric Rush fill out the Britomart Country Club that same night!
There are plenty of other events out there whether it’s a free showing of Elvis in the Park! down at Cranwell Park in Henderson on the 8th, a day of DJ’s at the beach for Takapuna’s Sun and Sound event on the 14th, or maybe a trip back in time with some of the old school vibes from Hipstamatic’s Soul Revue tour hitting Ponsonby Social Club on the 19th, bringing “a 5 piece rhythm section, a 3 piece horn section, and 3 powerful vocalists” so says event finda!
There’s so much more than just this going on up here, and in the midst of all your trekking and adventuring across Auckland city, there is Otautahi Tattoo, sitting right on Karangahape Road around the corner from Queen Street, with some nice comfy leather couches, nice refreshing filter cooled water and some relaxing (possibly not) music to help relax yet keep the mind active so you can get telling us about your next piece!

The events are many, the options are widespread and we’re still here to help figure it all out!
