Sam Carter

"My tattoo career started in Palmerston North in 2007 where I learnt to tattoo from Steve Nesbit at PowerHouse Tattoo. I then moved to the sunny Hawke’s Bay and started up Gypsy Kids Tattoo in 2010 while working under John Roberts at Monsta Truck Tattoo, Napier. At the beginning of 2017 I ventured out on my own to open my own studio which has since relocated to the Tuki Tuki Valley and been rebranded to El Vardo Tattoo. My tattoo style is organic and ornamental and specialising in majority black and grey."
