Capilli Tupou is an artist specialising in old school traditional style tattooing. As a New Zealander of Māori (Te Rarawa / Ngāpuhi) and American Samoan heritage, Capilli brings his own unique Polynesian slant to the style.
Seeking a career change where he could use his creative abilities, Capilli began tattooing in 2008 and found himself a place with Two Hands Tattoo.
In 2011, Capilli took up an opportunity to join Sacred Tattoo, before returning to Two Hands Tattoo in late 2015.
Capilli’s work has been admired both within New Zealand and abroad, allowing him to work at some of the best studios around the world.
In 2017 Capilli moved into a studio within Sunset Tattoo. Located on Auckland's Cross Street, Sunset Tattoo's focus is on providing customers with the best possible service and workmanship in a clean and fun environment.
