We are blessed in Aotearoa to have an arts funding body that helps support Artist and Art Audience Projects. Creative New Zealand has supported some of our artists on this journey and at various times in the past many of the participating artists have enjoyed CNZ support. This also holds significance because our indigenous art of tatau/moko is considered an art under their guidelines which is not the case for mainstream tattoo. A BIG THANK YOU 🙏 and may indigenous arts always have the utmost value in New Zealand society.
I will be attending the 2ND ANNUAL CHRISTCHURCH TATTOO FESTIVAL and I can't wait to visit friends in the South Island.
