Can we see some pics of your tiki work? I've been thinking about getting one.

Mahalos.

on these moai i did not do the lower wave stuff.(below the belly)


please do not copy these pics or try to have someone reproduce these, as they are one of a kind and i dont think the owners would be happy. if you want something designed i can make one just for you. thanks again



hope ya'll like em

hey good job on the tattoo artist job for so long. youve really stuck with it there. but i think the "would love to carve YOU" part spooks me a little bit. haha jokes
look foreward to seeing your work

Thanks for posting the pics. Those are cool designs. They give me more ideas to think about when I get around to the next bit of ink.

great work!! i've got a lot of tattoos, but no tiki ones yet.....but i still have another arm to sleeve, so they will get worked in there somewhere. i love that they're all custom pieces.....it makes the owner of it so much happier knowing it's the only one out there like that.....not some flash off the wall that hundreds of people have. looking foward to seeing more of your work. i may have to come by the shop next time we're in san diego.

Ha! Beware of the tattoo artist that says they don't hurt! I know I'd bleed, I always bleed. Hey, it's part of the fun, right?

Here's my last tattoo and first tiki piece



This was done by Cory at Lucky 7 in King's Beach, CA (Tahoe). He did a great job, but the moai is a little funky and a lot of people see it as a dog.

Let me ask you this: do you consider yourself a tiki specialist? If you are, I would definitely come down to San Diego to have you "carve" me I want to do a big tiki piece on my calf but I'd like to get it done by someone that knows and loves tiki so they can help me make sure it's right, and also help me plan out the rest of the space there so I can eventually end up with a wrap around tropical piece there.

Your work looks great, love to see more!

Wow... the skateboarder kicks ass! Reminds me of Stacy Peralta, but with black hair.

You do really nice work... both paint and ink!
