Glass Artist, Tattoo Artist
Tattoo Style Focus: New School
"The more I tattoo the more I realise it’s an art that builds connections - not just in the trust built between client and artist, but I believe it is something like a bridge that connects race, colour and language." - Sammy Teng
Sammy Teng was born in China (1992) and came to New Zealand in 2010. For 4 years until 2019, his creative focus was glass blowing in Taupo and Nelson, as well as in Adelaide, Australia.
Since June 2019, Sammy has undertaken a intensive tattoo apprenticeship here at Art + Body Creative Studio, including undertaking training in professional piercing.
Sammy is currently developing his art skills and focusing particularly in New School tattoo style.
