When I’m on to a winner I tend to stick with it. Aaron did my first (ever) tattoo in their Dunedin studio and he did it freestyle. His vision and attention to detail is just impeccable. My second tattoo I coincided with a trip to Mt Maunganui in the new studio. This time I came at him with a watercolour idea, which I had noted didn’t seem a style he did. For a dude who admitted he wasn’t a fan of watercolour he did an amazing job, a testament to his artistic ability and professionalism.
The main reason I chose to use Visual Intelligence for my second tattoo (other than Aaron’s amazing artistic talent of course) was the customer service both Aaron and Macaela provide. It makes them a cut above the rest. I was really unsure with my first and had all these wild crazy ideas. They were kind enough not to laugh a noob out the shop. They’ll work with you to give you what you want and you’ll walk away with a piece you’ll love and be proud to wear.

Had such a great experience here! Brought in my own design for a tattoo and they even fixed up another one of my tattoos (which originally was done elsewhere) and both tattoos turned out perfect. They even managed to fit me in at super short notice. Both professional and friendly. Would highly recommend to anyone!
