Thyme Dont Wait

Jordan Hetaraka (Tattoo Artist)
NZ born of Maori descent



I’m from a little place in the Kaipara harbour called Arapoa. Going through school I didn’t really know what direction I wanted to head in the future. I kind of just stumbled across the art form. I’ve always been occupied with art and it's pretty much the only thing I’ve ever really been passonate about. It’s a competitive industry that is constantly challenging me to grow!! My main motivation is my daughter. Everything I do now is for her future. I’m extremely lucky and grateful to have been given the opportunity to take my art to the next level. My ultimate goal is to be a reputable artist with a strong clientele base that likes my style of tattooing and hopefully open my own studio. That’s a very long way away but it gives me a goal to reach.
