Founded in 2002 by a Czech born professional tattoo artist, Pepa T. Heller and his wife Jana. Their studio can be found in the heart of Tauranga CBD.
A true Bohemian by birth and a soul. Pepa has been honing his tattooing skills from the late 90’s in studios across Europe and Oceania.
He is an internationally recognised artist and an award winner from many tattoo conventions in NZ and abroad. The decision to start a studio was led by his passion to introduce new styles and improve upon standards in the area of body art.
Today Bohemian Tattoo Arts is a collective of top tattoo and body piercing artists found in NZ. We seek to work with distinctive, handpicked artists, so that Bohemian Tattoo Arts Studio remains synonymous with the best art and practices available today.
Ultimately our mission is to help you realise your inner self.

Before getting a tattoo it is good to know what is involved, what are the potential risks and how to minimise them. If you are not sure, please read our Tips & Tricks and make sure you discuss any of your concerns with the artist.
It is good to have a good idea what you would like to get tattooed. Are you adding to an existing work, or thinking of something new? Our artists will discuss your ideas with you and guide you through the process. It is important that you carefully consider the chosen design, afterall you will be proudly wearing it for a long time.
Looking after your fresh tattoo is essential. There are number of skin conditions, like cellulitis that could occur as a result of poor care. After finishing on the day, the artist is going to apply a protective film over your skin. This is to protect it from the outside environment. Afterall, you have an “open wound”. Applying good quality moisturising cream to help with the healing process is recommended. You will be guided to best options available.
