The Hawaiian Islands have been the home to many incredible people. Some of the best surfers, painters, artists, tattooers and musicians have been nurtured and grown in this incredible place in the middle of the Pacific ocean.
Growing up here, has been a blessing and it was only when we were able to really get away from the islands in our world travels that we discovered how truly special this place Hawaii really was. This expo came together with truth, dedication, passion and the desire to bring together the best artists in Hawaii, with the best artists from around the world and share them with the people of Hawaii. In the same way that the ancient Hawaiians found this wonderful place, so did many other ethnicities of people and in doing so, the cultural melting pot that we know it as today expanded. Tattoo art exploded from traditional and deep cultural roots and it fused with the different style of Japan, and the Samoan Tatau and much more.
This is why we fought hard to put this expo on. To SHARE the wonderful talent and culture that makes Hawaii so special.
This expo is run BY TATTOO ARTISTS, SHOP OWNERS & TATTOO ENTHUSIASTS for the TATTOO ARTISTS AND ARTISTS OF THE WORLD.
Tomorrow Saturday August 4th EAST3 X PAKZ Ink and Handstyle collaboration from 3-6pm. Come thru and get a custom handstyle by East3 and have it tattooed on the spot at the convention.
