Toby

Toby originally hails from Taupo, he moved to wellington when he was 18 to study illustration. During his years studying he did many murals around the wellington region for clients including Wellington council and Wellington electricity. A keen skater Toby also designed artwork for many New Zealand based skate and clothing companies, as well as gig posters and album covers for local bands before transitioning into tattooing.

He started his tattoo apprentiship under veteran wellington tattoo artist Heath Todd at his studio Esoteric Ink. Due to new opportunities the pair moved to Cuba street tattoo where Toby worked for three years honing his skills.

Toby excels at Black and grey realism work, neo traditional and realistic illustrative designs. This year he has been concentrating on travelling and working guest spots to push himself and work with artists he really admires. He is working towards travelling overseas later in the year to work with international artists in a similar style. So come and get tattooed by him before he goes overseas.
