More than 25 Years of Tattoo Design Experience

Zealand Tattoo’s founder and owner is Zane Swanston. He brings more than 25 years of comprehensive and progressive tattooing experience ‘to the table.’ He has grown within the tattoo art and design industry to specialise in the above mentioned design styles in order to create for each Zealand Client, one off ‘future-proofed’ living canvas type design.

He has successfully progressed through four studios, has won numerous tattoo design awards and featured in many tattoo industry related publications. He has personally trained a number of successful tattoo artists through a comprehensive tattoo apprenticeship program and has hand-picked a somewhat formidable group of expert tattoo artist professionals that form the various parts of the Zealand Team.

In short, dealing with a highly trained professional in the skin art and tattoo design field is no different from seeking assistance from a specialist or surgeon in the medical industry, as opposed to a general practitioner.

Stand out from the crowd by having a striking art piece tailor-made to your specific personal requirements and applied with the highest standards of professional care.
