Guest Artist Josh Paki

Josh Paki will be down with us 8th-11th March

We are all just a little bit excited about Josh coming to work with us as it’s the first time we’ve ever had a Ta Moko artist guesting at the studio. Josh specialises in modern contemporary maori designs, here’s a bit more about Josh:

“Kia Ora Koutou Ko Tainui toku waka, ko Waikato Tainui toku iwi, ko Taupiri toku maunga, ko Waikato toku awa, ko Ngati Whawhakia toku hapu, ko Te Ohaaki toku marae, ko Josh Waru Wetere Paki taku ingoa. He Kai Ta, ko au.

Nau mai, haere mai ki te kainga o Josh Paki Tā moko.

Using contemporary and traditional designs, I create custom drawn pieces designed to reflect the wearer’s whakapapa (genealogy) and kaupapa (ideology behind the design)”

I first met Josh at the Auckland tattoo convention in 2011, and have watched his career grow over the past few years, Josh is currently working at The Tattooed Heart in Auckland.
