Biography My passion for art is rooted in my upbringing. Being born in Samoa by a Tongan mother and Fijian father highly influenced my respect for the traditional art form of the Pacific Islands. Being raised in Oakland California, surrounded by the street art and culture gave me a different perspective of what art can be. Now calling Hawaii my home, I am fortunate to live on an Island where I can find Western, Eastern and Pacific art all in one place. My goal as a tattooist and member of Soul Signature Tattoo, my mission is to innovate and create but to never forget the basic fundamentals of what makes a timeless work of art.
