About The Studio

Established in Riverhead in 2020

The pickled tiki tattoo studio is set in a country setting with a very laid back vibe. The studio itself is made up of completely private rooms. You will have your artists full attention so he or she can put 100 percent focus on you and your design.

We will be introducing The Pickled Tiki Homestay Experience during 2021, allowing tourists and locals alike to stay here for 2 to 3 nights. You can dine on traditional Maori cuisine (Hāngi) and learn about our beautiful culture before undertaking the journey of his or hers Tā moko (Maori tattoo) – or another style of tattoo if you prefer. Keep an eye on our website and social feeds for more information on when the homestay is open!
