Pacific Tattoo


Tim began tattooing under Leo Zulueta at Black Wave, Los Angeles in 2000. He was inspired and influenced by Sua Sulu'ape Paulo, and Keone Nunes and also while working as a stone carver with Gordon Toi.

Tim has a strong feeling of connection to the natural world, and a love of Maori and Polynesian art and philosophy. After 5 years in the Paekakariki village it was time for a change, and the studio is now in the back garden of an old cottage in Otaki. It is a relaxed and peaceful setting to help make for a comfortable and memorable experience."
