Fabian, one of our top tattoo artists

Growing up in Santiago, Chile, Fabian was initially drawn to tattoo artistry through the local music scene, and soon started working from a friend’s shop when he was still just a teenager. After tattooing his way around most of Spain, our traditional tattoo artist finally settled in New Zealand several years ago where he continues to refine his art. A big fan of bold design and traditional tattoos, Fabian uses lots of color and shading – have a look at his work in the gallery and give us a call if you’d like him to design your next tattoo as your tattoo artist. If you already have an idea in mind about what type of tattoo design you want, or you have a rough idea of what it will look like but don’t have the artistic skills to render it, then pop in and see us. Fabian can help make your rough concept a reality.
