If you haven't already heard of Union Tattoo, you need to get out more in the Wellington tattoo community. The studio will turn one in December and has already established itself as one of the most popular places to get ink'd in the capital city. Owner Craigy, after doing a stint at ALC and leaving his mark on international clients across the globe, settled into his new spot on Willis St. Union sits conspicuously on Willis with light streaming in and a drawing corner for the resident artists.
Craigy spends more time in the studio than anywhere else and for that reason he's made sure Union feels homely. Union Tattoo flashes in gold foil on the storefront and the inside has character. With guest artists making appearances and Halloween flash events, Union has made a name for itself among first time clients and those looking for genuine pieces.
