Meet Our Team


Steve Rohlandt - Tattoo Artist (Owner)

Born and bred in Richards Bay, South Africa, I brought my love and talent for tattooing to New Zealand 7 years ago, now tattooing in Christchurch. Being a Carpenter by trade I decided to put the tools down for good and to follow my dream, and I have not looked back since. 

As an artist I enjoy many different styles of tattooing, but I do have a passion for black and grey realism.  

However, bring me your ideas and I will turn that into something custom for you to enjoy for the rest of your life.
