Tiki specializes in Polynesian tattooing using ancient hand poked bamboo methods, Tiki does not use machines. Each tattoo is drawn right on the customer freehand, every design utilizes symbols and patterns fitting to the customer. Tiki has studied the meaning of these symbols, making each tattoo specifically for the customer.
The Bamboo tattoo is a completely different experience compared to the machine; it is slower to complete but it hurts less than the machine tattoo. Another big advantage of a bamboo tattoo is that it heals significantly quicker than a machine tattoo, typically allowing the client to get back to vacation activities much faster.
In 2022, Tiki was one of the first if not the first New Zealand tattoo artist to release his own Polynesian art NFT collection.
He did my first bamboo tattoo . It is really beautiful and like I wanted. It was like he read on my mind for the drawing. Very good job, nice guy. The same for his wife she is really kindly. Everything good, I’m very happy. You can go for a tattoo and trust him, he know his job 100%. Thank again. See you for the next part of my arm. Leny M

First tattoo, great experience! Tiki is a great guy. He worked with me on the design asking questions about why I chose a tattoo and customized the design to match my story. Very clean and comfortable studio. The bamboo technique was a lot less painful than I thought it would be and the results are amazing! Thank you Tiki for your beautiful work and a great experience. - Matthew Scrivo
