2020 the year of the weird

December 31st 2020

Wow what a year it has been! Not the one that we all expected that is for certain. We both hope that this year has been kind to you all. 

It has been a big year for us at Left Hand Path! We began the year by moving location to a private studio located in North Canterbury around a 20 minute drive from Kaiapoi. This was such a great decision for us and has meant that we can focus the experience more for you. Not only is it a beautiful peaceful location but we are now appointment only which means that we do not have people dropping in for enquiries and disturbing us working. Each station has its own Ipad and wireless headphones so that you can tune out and watch Disney plus or Netflix whilst you get tattooed as well as complimentary soft drinks. A far more relaxing experience, no traffic, lots of parking and only the 2 of us working means some days it can be arranged to have the studio to yourself. We look forward to showing you the studio if you have not yet seen it. 

Andy has had a great year. He took out 3 well deserved awards! Best colour portrait at the Christchurch Expo, Best of day at Rotorua Tattoo Hui and Best Realism at the Wellington tattoo convention. Andy is keen to take on more surrealism and realism pieces and his books are currently open for Feburary and beyond! Email the studio with any enquiries lhptattoos@gmail.com.

Lara has been working hard this year. She has been focusing on her cartoon, pop culture and animal pieces in particular in colour. She still loves doing her geometric and mandala work too and took out third place at the Christchurch Expo earlier this year for best Geometric colour. Lara currently has her books closed but will be reopening them late June she will be taking bookings for this time from early April 2021. She always loves to hear your ideas so feel free to send through any enquiries to lhptattoos@gmail.com. 

The studio will be closed for the month of January but we will be checking emails when we get a chance. Please do bear with us during this time you are important to us and we will get back to you at our earliest convenience. Andy still has some spaces in February so drop a message if you would like to book in for a new piece or continue with an existing piece. 

We hope that you all have a wonderful new year and are hopeful the world will get back to the new normal in 2021. Be kind to one another and stay safe. We look forward to doing some awesome artwork for you in 2021!


Lara and Andy.
