Introducing Bernadette Chrismas: Auckland's Premier Tattoo Artist Redefining Realism Tattoos.

Bernadette Chrismas, known affectionately as Bernie, is making waves in the world of tattoo artistry. With an unyielding passion for capturing intricate details, Bernie has emerged as Auckland's up-and-coming tattoo artist, specialising in realism and micro-realism tattoos.

Bernie's artistic journey began at a young age, displaying an exceptional talent for detailed creations. This early foundation paved the way for her future as a tattoo artist, where she continues to push the boundaries of what is possible in the world of tattoos

Specialising in Color Realism, Micro Realism, and Black & Grey Realism, Bernie's technical prowess and artistic vision set her apart. Colour Realism allows her to create vibrant works of art on the skin, meticulously blending shades and hues to produce breathtakingly realistic tattoos.

Micro Realism, on the other hand, demands a level of precision that borders on obsession. Bernie's mastery of this style results in miniature masterpieces, capturing the essence of the subject matter in minute detail.

In the realm of Black & Grey Realism, Bernie excels in creating tattoos characterised by monochromatic palettes. Her deep understanding of shading and composition ensures tattoos that are both visually striking and emotionally resonant.

Beyond technical skill, Bernie places a premium on the client's experience. Her studio offers a warm and welcoming environment, fostering a sense of comfort and ease. Through attentive listening and collaborative consultation, Bernie translates the client's ideas into stunning tattoos that reflect their unique identity.
