A tattoo studio. In a Museum. A New Zealand first? Probably. 

IMG 3416 MediumSHIFT Studio, part of SHIFT: Urban Art Takeover, is open for a flash day on Sunday 19 March, offering the complete flash tattoo experience.

Tattoos are $250, which includes a ticket to see SHIFT: Urban Art Takeover, the Museum's blockbuster urban art exhibition, at your leisure.

First, check out the artists' flash sheets over on the SHIFT Studio Instagram (@shiftstudio2023). Then book your ticket, choosing the creator of your preferred design.
