Miss Ink Tonight

After a hard day tattooing, we have to judge a tattooed beauty contest. It's a hard life.... :)

Halloween Flash Day

Halloween’s going to be exciting this year: It’s our first in the new shop and we want to make it special. Saturday the 29th, we will have a Halloween Flash Day. We’ll have--

A professional makeup artist doing free horror makeup,

Candied apples and trick or treating,

Games of chance and skill (with real prizes),

And gift certificates for everyone who comes in costume!

And of course, the main event: Over 100 hand-drawn tattoo designs up on the walls, all priced between $85 and $200 for ONE DAY ONLY. First come, first served and all that jazz!

After Flash Day wraps up, join us at Halo Venue, for the finals of Miss Ink NZ, where we’ll be proud sponsors and yes, even judges! Tickets here:

As if all that isn’t enough, once all of this is done, we’ll be kicking into high gear (even higher gear?) for Shave the Date, our fundraiser for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer NZ on November 12. That’s gonna come with a ton of great prizes too, but more on that closer to the date!


Look for the Flag!

You asked, and we listened. Those of you who have had trouble finding the place now have a big, bright flag to point the way. Come see us! :)
