Howdy Tattoo People!!!

I am a custom tattoo artist, tattooist, tattooer (I’m not sure on that last one, I think it’s American) with 20+ years professional tattooing, I work in a variety of tattoo styles including, Biomechanical, Oriental (Japanese), Portrait, Skulls and Horror, Old school Traditional, Fantasy art, Large and Small, Colour as well as Black and Grey…… that’s to name just a few, I really could go on all day.

As some of you may know Tattoo Freaky was the name of my studio in Lower Hutt, and that I closed the studio back at the end of 2013 and moved up to Tauranga.  I am now tattooing at Heritage Tattoo 832 Cameron Road, Tauranga. Call into the shop and say hello!!!

Check out the new domain name!!! Until recently I had still been using my old web address www.tattoofreaky.com which was the name of my old studio in Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt.  But it is now time to let that go and move on with the new address davemcewantattooart.com cool aye? It has even got my name in it!!  With that in mind there has been a few change over issues with a few files and images not making the shift.  Therefore some things may not be working properly yet, particularly the galleries.

My approach to tattooing is to create a individual piece for each and every client, as there is nothing worse than seeing your tattoo on three different people on one trip to the supermarket?

Remember folks Pinterest is a great tool for inspiration and reference but shouldn’t be the place to take someone else’s art.


Come in, take a look around, check out my gallery and about page. For Booking and inquiries see the contact page.

Covid 19 Level 2 Restrictions

We are open under level 2 Covid 19 restrictions but there are some changes to how we are open and will be taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our artists and clients. 

-Preferably all clients will pre-arrange their tattoo or consultation appointment time and date with their chosen artist.

-Only the persons being tattooed will be allowed into the studio, ie NO hand holders, hangers on, looky loos, or visitors.

-We will be requiring accurate contact information of all our clients for the purpose of contact tracing if required.

-We require that if you have been feeling unwell in anyway or have been in contact with anyone with Covid 19 in the 2 weeks leading up to your appointment, that you please stay away and reschedule your appointment.

-While under normal circumstances we welcome walk in traffic, Please call ahead if you are wanting to come in for a consult, our studio is only wee and it can fill up pretty fast , therefore we need to keep the numbers at a manageable level.

Thank you 
Dave
