About Me


Hello, I’m Bernadette Chrismas, or Bernie for short. I consider myself fortunate to have a semi-rural private studio just outside of Auckland city, its the perfect space to nurture my art.

By appointment-only, you receive the necessary time and attention you deserve. Every piece I create is not just a standalone artwork; it is a meaningful part of my personal journey.
This journey is fueled by my genuine passion for all aspects of art while I establish my name locally and internationally.

I have a wide range of experience, including a background in film composition. This background enables me to approach tattoo design in a unique way, breaking free from the limitations of traditional design.

Being an artist and immersing myself in flowstate has always been part of who I am. Creating is a source of inspiration and allows me to express myself fully.
Attention to detail in my artistic process sets me apart. I am obsessed with capturing the intricacies and nuances of the subjects I work with.This commitment to detail ensures that the final result is a true representation of the subject’s essence and beauty. My artistic journey has been enriched by my deep knowledge of art history and theory. Understanding the evolution of art and the underlying principles helps me approach my work with a broader perspective.

I’m known as being a relaxed, approachable, and calming individual. I believe in creating a welcoming environment where my clients feel comfortable expressing their ideas and visions. I am careful to listen and understand your ideas for your project. It is important to me that you feel heard, respected, and supported throughout the creative process.

If you have any questions or would like to know more about my work, artistic process, or anything else, please don’t hesitate to ask.
