Owner and Artist of the establishment, Tristan has been tattooing in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii for the past 15 years. Aspiring to become Hawaii island's first tattoo and piercing supplier.
Years in this industry has taught Tristan that a business, such as being the supplier, comes with great costs, patience and a bit of competition along the way. The main challenge was being able to purchase equipment and such at wholesale prices. Shipping rates will never come down, and in order to stay in touch with industry products and developments, there was no choice but to compete with his neighbors in tattooing.
He has decided to suspend his campaign as a supplier to the industry, and will now focus on strictly becoming a reputable tattoo artist, and piercer.
