Keep in mind, It can also take up to 2 weeks for us to respond to an email inquiry, so please be patient. We will get back to you as soon as possible. It is better to text us if you can.

We also require a 50-100 dollar deposit to secure an appointment date. Nothing is set until that is received. When ready to make a deposit we will send you a deposit request through PayPal or Vemno to your phone number or email.

When submitting a query, it’s very important to provide us with most of the following. If visiting the island please include your travel dates. It’s better to book closer to the end of your trip. You may provide any insight about your intentions, size, and tattoo placement. If you are not familiar with the differences in the individual styles of tattooing found within our portfolios, please provide a screenshot of the style of work that you are interested in. Don’t worry! Your tattoo will be unique and designed to support your own intentions. As for the meanings. There is no place you are going to find about the meanings online. You might find vague descriptions in a few books and websites but this knowledge has been passed down orally. Trust that we will help educate and explain the symbols we choose for you. This way of tattooing is about connection and vital that you know what every aspect of your tattoo is about.

If your going to wear it. You must defend it!

When tattooing, we are a freight train of focus. We rarely take breaks unless you need one. There are no distractions in our studio. We are here to fulfill your intentions and give you 150% professionalism.

Aloha and we look forward to hearing from you.
