Carol Lima

I am a Brazilian-born tattoo artist with over 6 years of experience. I specialise in Fine Line and Pet Portrait Tattoo, but passionate about designing and challenging myself in a variety of other styles. It's important to me to create custom tattoos that are both beautiful and meaningful to my clients. Recently moving to New Zealand, I have fallen for the country, its people – and immortalising their pets on skin. 

In my free time, I love exploring the outdoors or crawling up on the couch with a coffee, to paint using watercolour or pencil sketch portrait realism. I keep in touch with previous studios I have worked in (Los Angeles, Brazil and Portugal) because I feel it's important to keep a pulse on tattoo trends locally and internationally. 

I believe a good tattoo artist is more than just someone who can draw well. They need to be patient, understanding, humble and compassionate. They should be able to listen to their client's ideas and translate them into a tattoo that is both aesthetically pleasing and personal. I have found working in Fine Line Pet Realism tattoos that the tattoo artist should be detail-oriented and meticulous in their work. Taking their time to create a tattoo that is free of mistakes – a skill I offer all my clients. 

Committed to providing my clients with the best possible experience, I use only the highest quality inks and needles, and I take all necessary precautions to ensure that my clients are safe. I offer free consultations so that my clients can feel confident in their decision to get a tattoo. If you are looking for a talented, experienced tattoo artist who will create a tattoo that you will love for a lifetime, then I am the artist for you.
