New Tattoo by Joe Brown // Nesian Tattoo (Mangere)

Am seemingly addicted to getting tattooed. Most recent piece is by Mangere-based Samoan tattooist, Joe Brown, whose space, Nesian Tattoo on Kirkbride Road always inspires me.

Joe added to and extended a tattoo I’ve had on my back for ten years connecting it to the two recent kingfishers I had tattooed on my hips.

Even in my fourteenth tattoo session, it still hurts.

But I love my new Joe Brown tattoo.
