Otautahi Tattoo Logo

The story of Ōtautahi as a whole starts with a humble beginning in the Garden City of Christchurch.  The shop and the artists started to gain momentum within New Zealand and then soon the world!  But all that came crashing down when we tragically lost our Christchurch shop in the 2011 earthquake.

After Ōtautahi branching out to Auckland and Queenstown, it was time to come back to the 03! So with that we did.  Three years after the earthquake we reopened the doors to our Christchurch Tattoo Studio and moved location to the fast pace Riccarton Road. But at end of 2019 we finally moved back to where we belong; in the heart of our rebuilt city, right next to the Bridge of Remembrance on the edge of the Avon river.

The setup is fresh and unique with a wide open plan layout, 9 stations with various tattoo artists, both national and international, specialising in their own unique flavors and styles. At Ōtautahi Tattoo we have some of the best tattoo artists in Tā Moko and Tatau, Neo traditional and Old School tattooing, as well as, Realism and Lettering/Script work.  We would love to meet you and have you visit our friendly and professional Christchurch tattoo studio and we would be honored to do your next tattoo!
