Very pleased with my experience here. Super affordable and professional. I was pierced by a trainee and the owner supervised her. They were both very professional and made the experience very pleasant. I'd highly recommend getting your piercing done here!

Got 2 of my tattoos from Alvi last year and I love them so much, the work is incredible, Alvi is improving so fast and I'm happy that she's doing her job so well. Totally recommended. Will visit again.
Gavin Mak
Everything about this place is of the highest standard and very professional, Rob takes his time to make sure all is done well and the experience is as comfortable as possible as well as the work standard definitely making it a place to recommend. Will certainly go back...soon hopefully. Thanks Rob. Rob
Rob Fili
Great guy to deal with! I’ve had multiple tattooists and can say I’m definitely going to continue to use rob at living art
Timothy Hemi
I highly recommend Living Art (Rob) I did the piercing training through living art and it was worth every cent. Rob made me feel comfortable which took alot of the stress away. The training is perfect, well explained. He even offered me a job afterwards and stated that if I ever need help or guidance after the training he will be there to help. Even if I wasn't to work with him. If you ever want to get into the piercing or even tattoo industry Living Art is definitely the place to go!
jaime rangiawha
I have been to Living Art (and old Primal) for 90% of all of my piercings, and every time has been quick, painless and stress free. Vertical Labret - Ten years strong and still perfect! I also had my Septum pierced roughly 2 years back, for this one I was very nervous but Robs confidence makes you feel a lot better and it was perfectly straight and amazing. I warn everyone to try not to play with your new piercings as much as possible!! I am a hay fever sufferer and couldn't help it and made my own septum slightly crooked during the healing process, thankfully you can only tell when I look up!! ;) either way, the team here are the bomb and I'll be coming back for years to come, guaranteed.
Courtney O'Connor
Their advice is very good! I had a nose piercing for over 6 months which I had gotten done at KEEN ON PIERCING. The second time i enquired into what the bump was, they recommended studex and nothing further. I had 9 keloids over the course of 6 months!!! I HAD ENOUGH. Living art changed my piercing to a screw on. They also recommended using tea tree oil, however with the simple change of jewelry, the keloid had disappeared. Never had any problems since, hoping it heals right this time round. I would highly recommend living art, as they are honest in what they do.
Ben Malu
I had my chest tattoo done and it turned out really nice! I was really nervous at first but the artist made me feel comfortable and got me through it. Alvi was really nice and friendly I would definitely recommend for anyone getting their first tattoo or looking to get a nice piece done. A++

Got my cover up tattoo done today and my experience was excellent! Rob was professional and did a great job. Life changing. Would definitely come back again. My new Rose is badass!
Jay Mataia
What a great choice for "My first tattoo experience". Great consultation and design advice. Rob's personality puts you at ease and he manages to keep that up during the tattoo. The end result is perfect even to the tiny details in the design. Thanks Rob I'm thrilled with my Tatt!
Sally Harris
No time to be nervous about your piercing! Rob definitely knows what he's doing and is done before you know it! Would highly recommend!

Tony Mokomoko
I came here yesterday to get some script done by Alvi. She did a beautiful job and made me feel at home! :) Couldn't of asked for a better experience!
Kristen Davies
Pretty Good work.affordable.
Andrea Bartlett
Redid my adult ear piercing which had been botched as a child. Did my daughter age 11. Very sensible and treated her like a sensible young adult. Recommend highly. Don't get your childrens ears pierced by a pharmacy newbie
Melanie Rees

Had my piece done by the Hong Kong girl, think her name was Alvi Was an absolute pleasure, and it looks amazing. Thank you so much!
Wen Wei Xie
Have been back time and time again, Rob is always helpful and a fantastic artist.
Alfred Vipond
Had the absolute pleasure of being inked by ALVI last weekend ❤ She is just wow ! I walked in going with a gut feeling to trust her and I'm so glad I did. She has great customer service and mad needle skills 👌 She made sure everything was perfect; she didn't rush or make me feel uncomfortable at all; if I'm honest I totally forgot she was working on me most of the time. It's almost finished healing and I'm even more happy with the result than when I first got it 😍 I cannot recommend her more ! I will be back ! Thanks so much babe ! See you soon ! X
Jess Caterer
I always get my tattoos here, and got my sister coming here now too. The service is excellent, and the tattoos always turn out really well. Rob is a really cool guy, with over two decades of experience. I cannot recommend this place more.
Mario Kiss
Amazing experience! Has my tattoo done by the tattooist Alvi and she did an awesome job! Would recommend her again to anyone 💓
Grace Izett
Love the new location. This was my 2nd tattoo and Rob was as friendly and professional as before. Highly recommended!!
Jan McNay
What a great experience I had getting my Tatt . Rob put me at ease straight away , and managed to get me in sooner than expected . 5.5 hours just flew by for me , not so sure about Rob though . The end result is more than pleasing ,and worth every dollar. No need to ask where I'm going for my next one. Cheers Rob , a true artist , and Gent .
Ian Robinson
Really awesome!!! If or when I get another Tattoo I'm definitely going there again.
Heinrich Muller
Never have I been in a tattoo studio that was so relaxing. It was like I'd gone to a spa but instead of getting a massage I got inked. Rob the tattoo artist was friendly, easygoing and professional with a steady hand and the studio itself was clean and comfortable. Very happy with the work I had done and would definitely go here again.
Amy Nisbett
If you are after a testosterone laden environment, with Harley's and '56 Chevy's, this may not be the place for you. If you are into art, a clean spotless facility, willing to help with design , placement and perfect execution of your design, then this is your place. Great customer service. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Best experience ever. Got exactly what I wanted and am really happy with my decision.
Philip Esdaile
Amazing ***** Would like to say thank you to rob & pat for just an amazing expereance, while I was in New Zealand I drew my tattoo and they drew it on my leg, exactly the same. Rob is incredible make you feel at home and talks to you like you've known him for ages. Brilliant guy a lot of respect for him, Pat, who did my tattoo amazing, art work and thank you for the tat, looks amazing. I would highly recommended anyone going for a tattoo to go there I went to a few for price and I didn't get anything near the heart warming welcome I got at living art tattoo would go back for more can't thank them enough,
jason nash
Really good Piercer. Had my rook done on my ear and it didn't hurt one bit.

Blake Purcell
I can't say enough good things about Rob and Living Art Tattoos & Body Piercing. Rob did an absolute AMAZING job on my tattoo. The colours are absolutely unbelievable!!! I had no idea colours that good were even possible in a Tattoo. The artwork itself is a masterpiece!! Rob is truly a Guru and Legend with decades of experience!!! The store itself is immaculate, clean and extremely hygienic (which was important to me). The atmosphere is extremely relaxing and friendly. Rob is a true professional. An interesting and entertaining bloke. Highly recommend anyone to get their tattoo or piercing done here!!! A+++
Paul Martin-Williams
I've been here for 3 piercings and 4 tattoos. They're very friendly and alvi is an amazing artist.
Dannielle Morris
Such a privilege to have Rob tattoo myself and my two sisters recently. He puts you at ease while working and makes sure you are comfortable with the TV on. His work spaces are tidy and was very accommodating with the pieces we all chose on the day. This was my sixth tattoo and I will be back for more
Ray White Swanson
Had an awesome experience with rob. He is an amazing artist. Was relaxed and friendly I definitely will come back again. Can recommend to anyone looking for something unique. Thanks again rob
Chris White
Good bloke. Sense of humour.
G Holden
Got my first Tattoo today done by Pat. I was a bit nervous at first but he made me feel very comfortable. Pat managed to make my tat even better than the picture I've shown him. I am super happy with his work and would definitley recommend going there. Thank you guys for your awesome work!
Tickle Ticklelino
Thank you soooo much Alvina, I am absolutely in love with this tattoo 😍😍😍 thank you for your dedication and making me feel so at ease but most of all, I appreciate the fact that you actually took your time to make it perfect just for me :) Can't recommend this young lady enough!! For someone who hasn't been in this industry for long, she has achieved alot and Her work just keeps getting better and better 👌 I honestly think she is going places, so y'all should keep a lookout for this one!!
Sophie I
Was in today getting my first tattoo in memory of my mum and I absolutely love it. Rob you are the man!!! He listened to what I wanted came up with something better than I pictured. Highly recommended and kept me entertained while I sat in that seat thank you Rob!!! If you are like me and it's going to be your first tattoo and your worried Rob is the man to see!!!
Kratos M
Alvina puts all her heart into each and every one of her designs, she took her time to perfect my tattoo yet also working at a fast steady pace. She also has the best personality and will definitely make you feel at ease during your stay.
Northstar 4
Great and friendly staff. Had the pleasure of Alvi designing and giving me my tattoo. More than happy I must say!
Rob is an amazing artist with the cultural and historical knowledge and personality to know what kind of tattoo fits a person. He'll do that stupid shark tattoo you want but he'll even make it look goooood. I've spent about 9 hours as his canvas so far and I would highly recommend him for someone looking for a powerful, meaningful tattoo.
Steven Yang
Simply awesome experience. I had an intimate piercing done in the wrong place at different establishment. I spoke to Rob about it and he was professional, understanding and re-pierced it where it needed to be. I am going back for more peircings and tattoos after the lockdown. Thank you Rob, keep safe and I'll see you soon.
Absolutely brilliant, I asked for a 3d tattoo and that is exactly what I got. I would recommend Rob to anyone that want a tattoo. It was professional and worth the money I spend. Will definitely go back for my other tattoos
Sean Rocher
Got my first tattoo there , a cross on my arm. It is more than I expected. I went there with an idea, and what Rob suggested was way better than what I had in mind. Amazing job so proud of my decision choosing Rob to do my first tattoo. Looking forward to get the second one. His sense of humour and the relaxing environment made our visit absolutely unique.
Amine Khoueiry
I have been here to get my tragus peirced, lip and two nipples peiced and 1 microdermal removed by Rob, he did a good job. He is very friendly for starters and professional. His work place is very clean and tidy. Overall I am very satisfied. Thank you so much. I Will be returning to get a tattoo and more peircings lol
melissa poneka
Very professional studio
Rafael Veiga
Rob made me feel incredibly comfortable when I got a personal piercing today. Super professional so mellow and very good at distraction to calm me down when I was freaking out. Thank you so much Rob!!
Jessica Harrison
Experienced, Professional, and Exceptional. Rob is an expert and I could not recommend this store nearly enough. Living Art is my go-to with body mods, and I will be returning happily for years to come.
A good friend and me decided spontaneously to get a piercing and this team is just amazing! Now I've a beautiful piercing (nose) and my friend a second earring! No pain and a nice short Smalltalk, because I was sooo nervous, but now I'm just happy. And also very important - it's a clean shop. I would do it every time again!🙏
July K
Got inked by the lovely Alvi. Very happy with my very first tattoo. Fun and very welcoming girl. Highly recommend A ++. Will be coming for more. 👌
Rosarine Kauapa
Rob has done an amazing job for me. He was very professional and talked me through everything clearly. After breast cancer 🎀 and bi lateral mastectomies, I eventually had my reconstruction. Rob completed my journey back to feeling feminine again with having the tattoos done. Rob has before and after pics fir anyone to see the amazing work he has done. Thank you so very much Rob. I will always recommend you to others and I will never go anywhere else myself. Regards Paula
Paula Ayris-webster

msjacquec campbell
I’m 46yrs old and finally decided to get a tattoo. I got hold of Rob and asked him to have a look at my design. He was prompt and very friendly, so a booking was made. I was blown away with the suggested addition to the design, which further enhanced the meaning behind it. The whole process was flawless, and apart from his professionalism, he was really funny with a great sense of humour. I’m pleased to say that my tat looks fab, the stencil work is just top notch. If you’re considering getting a tattoo, I would highly recommend his outfit. Cheers Rob! Martin Murphy
Superb craftsmanship. Hygienic. Extremely professional. Great banter. Reasonable pricing. Parking aplenty. Highest recommendation for first timers and those are well inked. An Auckland gem.
Tim Elliott
Thank you for my new free piercing I got Today was an industrial and I love it highly recommend living art friendly staff.thank you
Whitney Eva & Antonio
Rob is the only tattooist that I use. I have been going to see him for many, many years. He is always so professional, has fantastic ideas when I am unsure what I am and does a beautiful job. I have had a full sleeve done and other tattoos. My daughter has also had tattoos from him. Love his work !!
nikki shute
Can totally recommend Rob at living art tattoo!! I am so in love with his work! And the detail involved! Especially for the remembrance tattoo I had done for my mum and dad, it is absolutely perfect and exactly how I had imagined!! Very clean and hygienic studio as well which is a biggy for me, and Rob himself is a totally awesome guy!! And explains things as he goes. Thanks again Rob, I will definitely be back again once I decide on what I’d like next :)
Allison Ryan
5 stars absolutely amazing experience, professional and it all turned out looking sharp and clean, she even stayed at the parlor late so she could fit me in. thank You Alvina!! ❤
Will Tomkinson
Got my first tattoo from Alvi it is awesome. She treats her customer more like a friend<3
yau edison
Awesome experience! Would highly recommend this place! Thanks Alvi
Alana Dunn
It was an amazing tattoo of mine. Thank you so much for an amazing work you do 😊 I would highly recommend this place 👌
Sujeeta Naidu
Got my first tattoo by Rob and I couldn’t be anymore happy with the end result. If you want an experienced artist that’s willing to listen and get the tattoo down to the T. This is the place to go!
Maria Ruka
Alvina done my tattoo 2 weeks ago and im still obsessed with it I cant stop staring at it. She was so lovely and comforting (as it was my first) and settled all questions and nerves that I had. The process was easy and straight forward right from the start and id happily be tattooed by her again. Ive also got to add that the fact that the tattoo room had a tv in there and had "tattoos after dark" playing was a huge relief too as i have major anxiety and kept thinking about the awkward silence that would occur but nothing of that sort happened which extremely made me feel welcomed. I would without a doubt recommend Living Art Tattoos & Body Piercing to anyone and everyone!
Tyler Moore
A very sterile, polite and stress-free experience. Would definitely recommend :)
Karlee Bloomfield
Great service.
Michelle Foley
Had my tattoo completed with Rob yesterday. A week prior I had gone in and explained the story behind the tattoo and what I was looking to get. Yesterday Rob blew me away with the end result, the tattoo was more than I ever could have expected it to turn out like. Rob takes the time to listen and understand, he will recommend but never pushy, and makes you feel 100% comfortable. Rob is very gentle when it comes to tattooing, although that may sound odd, people who’ve been tattooed will understand what I mean by that. Highly recommended, if you need a piece done, go to Rob he will give it justice.
Sarah Roberts
Just had my first Tattoo with Rob. He did a great job and made the experience a great one! Would highly recommend! Great shop layout and very hygienic.
David Feeney
Awesome piercing experience with the team today! Molly was amazing. She made the experience so easy and comfortable talking through the process step by step assisted by Rob who too helped the nerves with a bit of banter which is always appreciated(when you’re not a small talker lol). I will definitely be coming back for more! Love the private clean and organised set up too! If you want something done this is the place for sure. Cheers guys!
Jamie Clarke
OMG I am so impressed with this genius at work Not only did he manage to fit me in on very short notice he managed to make sure I had the most amazing experience for a first time tattoo. I definitely recommend this shop 100% and now I've tasted wat it's like I think I'll definitely be back for more ink I love the piece you did for me Thank you so much I'll be sending my sons here 4 sure
Anne Linden
Extremely calm atmosphere, getting my double helix piercings was extremely quick, love the results!
Diabolik Blaze
I visited Rob to see if he could cover a drunken mistake I got done In my teens. I've seen other tattooists who all said no they can't help. My partner mentioned him and he said yes he could help. I've waited 8 years to finally cover it up and he done an amazing job I'm so wrapped and pleased I absolutely love my new Dragon tattoo I'm so proud to wear it. His name is Whero. I will definitely be back to get more. I'm a very happy customer the price was fair his studio clean and tidy he made me feel comfortable and relaxed with a movie to watch. Thank you so much Rob I love my Dragon so much...
Chanelle Drummond
I never thought I wanted to get a tattoo but after stepping into Living Art Tattoos, I wanted one straight away. I happen to come across this place by chance and man am I glad! From the moment you walk in you can tell that this place is nothing like the other tattoo shops you find. Thank you Rob for the beautiful piece, I am sure to be back for more in no time! And to anyone who is unsure of what to get or from where - please check out Living Art Tattoo first before going anywhere else, guarantee you won't be disappointed!!!
Nabi T
Great service, awesome team
Alfie Prasad
Alvi did an amazing job on my thigh cover up! I've only finished one session but she was amazing! She didn't push me to doing more when I was starting to feel uncomfortable. I can't wait to see this piece finished 😍 Also can't wait for the sleeve plans!
Daniella Flores
Awesome experience today after getting a daith piercing. Will be back for more work. Give Ross a call if you want any piercings done. Highly recommended!
Tracy De Villiers
Would highly recommend Rob, very professional and helped with infected Helix piercings due to Keen On piercing in Henderson. He has pierced afew areas now and will be back for more hopefully soon, Thankyou so much!
Eshwa 94
Had Nathan for my first tattoo, he did an amazing job :) Very professional (and cute), and the tattoo looks amazing
Tessa Broadbent
Tattoo artist made sure I was comfortable and had water and napkins on hand. Hout on the latest movie for me while he started on my tattoo. I called the shots and Whenever I wanted to take a break he was very happy to let me do my thing. He even suggested at no extra cost we could do the tattoo in stages if it was too much to handle. Lovely man. He is worth every cent. I am considering going back for more work done. Excellent
Soteria Mareko
Awesome. Could not have asked for a better experience.
D Barnes-Vaughn
Rob is an amazing tattoo artist, he fixed my tattoo which made me more confident!! Thank you Rob!

Amazing tattoist
Anna Longley
Alvi has done 2 of my tattoos and she's amazing! She makes me feel so comfortable and her work is incredible!
Rachael Cochrane
I went in on Friday afternoon not knowing the $15 special had ended. However I was taken care of in a professional and respectful way. I was even offered a discount on the piercings I wanted. Which was so incredibly gracious. I felt very safe, and the aftercare instructions were very clear. I'm very thankful to the piercer. It's so important for people in such industries to be kind and respectful. And I received exactly that treatment.
Xander Butler
Had a daith piercing done today for free as someone was training in further piercings! I had my nose piercing done here a few yrs ago I would honestly recommend them not only for their piercings but their customer service. Honestly made me feel awesome!:) thanks guys!
santana jerome

Morgan Laura Rose Taylor
Love this place:) my very very first time at a tattoo shop in my past 21 years. I had my nose piercing with Rob, and I came all the way from Mount Albert which is a bit far way. Lucky it was worth...Rob is professional and not talkative at all which really surprised me lol😂😂I was quite nervous at there, and he was so cool. So far so good, no swollen, no infection. Good price and good quality. Thanks Rob!
Ciki Yoo
Very professional! Highly recommended!

Got a quick tattoo here this morning of my baby’s birth date and the service was great right from the beginning. Tattooist was straight forward where he was able to give me a quote through fb messenger before I made an appointment which I found really helpful. The actual tattoo was quick and turned out amazing! He was friendly and easy to get along with too :) enjoyed my experience here
Lynesia Tohilima
Love it
Aroha Chase

I spend one year in New Zealand and i absolutely wanted a very special souvenir. My favourite New Zealand bird: the fantail. So I emailed Rob a picture and we spoke about it and I got my appointment. Rob is a very friendly and highly talented Tattoo Artist and he absolutely knows what he is doing. The result was amazing! Its my most beautiful Tattoo and I've never seen such a good healing process on one of my other Tattoos. I'm really proud to have a wonderful piece of Robs art on my Body now! Thank you so much!
Sophie Eichhorn-Sammelhammer
Have been to living art a couple times now, Rob always makes it really easy to feel perfectly fine and happy, i have no regrets with choosing Rob as my place to go for any work!! Great work and thanks heaps
Tara Taylor
We had the best experience getting our daughter's ears pierced: professional and clean. For a kid who was nervous, you put her mind at ease, talked her through the process and effortlessly pierced her ears. It was exactly why we wanted to go to you rather than a chemist! Thank you
Victoria Patterson
Awesome preparation, patience, design and quality of work on a particularly tough cover up, can highly recommend Rob

Tatia Adams
My first tattoo was from Alvi here (on my foot!!!) and thanks to the amazing experience she gave me being so patient with my wussness has gotten me hooked to get my next 1(or 10!) and 100% would go back to Alvi for each and everyone one of them- special recommendation for anyone who wants their first one, Alvi is the best to go to!!!
Ellie Bee
Rob is absolutely fantastic. I was really scared as thought a belly button piercing would hurt. Did not even realize when he was done. Highly recommend.
Karina Adkar
Rob was very kind and reassuring, the environment was very sterile and welcoming. Would recommend for everyone, whether it's their first time getting a piercing or not:)

tania johnson
Rob done an amazing cover up Koi tattoo for me over a large black kanji tattoo that nearly every other shop said was impossible or said I would need expensive laser surgery first. It has been nearly 4 weeks since I got it done and it healed very quickly and looks great. He done it all in one session and is an awesome friedly dude. Excellent customer service, clean and awesome shop. Definitely coming back here! Thanks so much Rob!!
Looking forward to my seventh tattoo in 7 months on 3 Feb at Living Art Tattoos and Body Piercing!! Super happy with every piece he's done for me, and the fact he really understands what I want - from my often vague instructions, and comes up with great suggestions for designs I'd like too!

I went to get my eyebrow pierced on Satuday and the experience was absolutely perfect. Rob was super nice, got the piercing done nice and quick but in a very professional and accurate manner, and I came out with a piercing that I'm very happy with. The studio was super hygienic and clean. I'll definitely be coming back. :)

Friendly service, was pierced by a trainee under supervision and she did really well. Was her first eyebrow piercing and she did 2 each for me and my partner. Definitely recommended for piercings! Very clean too.

The result was perfect, it only took 25 minutes and Rob was brilliant. He put me at ease right from the initial enquiry as I had never had a tattoo before. I was really impressed with the website, it stood out from the others that I had looked at in the area. Rob is very professional and has a great product. I would highly recommend anyone to go to Living Art Tattoos. (Andrea Boyd using my husbands account!)

Very very pleased with the piercing I had done. Rob defiantly knew what he was doing and explained everything I wanted to know clearly. I got a very warm welcome when walking into the shop. The whole place was very clean and all tools were sterilised and disposed of as I would expect. Even the after care has been great, answering my questions and suggesting different options etc. I would highly recommend Living Arts. Thanks guys

Rob was so wonderful with helping us create and get our first tattoos (including adapting to our ever-changing designs). We were nervous but he was able to instantly create a calming atmosphere so even my sister with a fear of needles managed to go through with getting her tattoo done. Would definitely recommend his service to anyone - he's professional, friendly and super talented. Thanks so much!
