We have moved to Otaki!

It’s been a whirlwind of a time the last few months. BUT, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s shining brighter than ever before.


Sadly, we recently lost a very important part of our lives. Alan. He was a father, a grandfather and a very dear friend to many. Alan lived by the beach in Otaki and everytime we visited him, it felt as though we were on holiday on a tropical island.

We have decided to hold onto his memories and move our family into his old home in the beautiful sunny town of Otaki.

In order to make the most of our time here and  enjoy everything Otaki has to offer, we decided to move our tattoo studio as well.

We’ve now started trading from our new location, Unit 4 / 3 Arthur Street, Otaki and we couldn’t be any happier. The new space provides a creative, relaxing environment for us to work with heaps of space and we’re surrounded by hundreds of positive people from all the fantastic gift shops, cafés and outlet stores nearby.

I would like to extend a huge thank you to the following people.

Shane, Kyle, James, Matt, Eoin, Cameron, Jamie, Sharon, Barry, Louise, Sam, Stefan, Andrew, Dom, Ross, Tony, and finally a huge thank you to my beautiful wife Amy for holding down the fort and supporting the kids and I during this massive, life changing experience.

The studio is amazing and we could not have done it without the help from all of you. Thank you.

This year is going to be epic!

If you are an existing client of ours and you’re unsure of how to get to our new location, please either email info@abandonthebox.co.nz , fill out our contact form or send us a message on social media and we can let you know the best route.

Take care guys, thanks for all your support.
