benhawaii  I tattoo at @americanpinuptattoo. I've been known to cook, paint, and build useful stuff from time to time.

First portrait on a full leg sleeve. My client @dzario78 has committed to doing all the great cinema badasses starting with the amazing @bardemantarctic as the infamous Anton Chigurh. Aloha!

Sorry for multiple panels; this polynesian fox tattoo my amazing client let me do in one shot. Aloha!

Fun homage to my clients niece. Thanks for lookin!

This was a really challenging change of pace for me. Some realism, some graphic, some polka; a little bit of everything in this full sleeve that pays homage to my clients background. Had to work around a rework to incorporate older tattoos which resulted in this unusual and attention-grabbing / heavily metaphorical tattoo. Thanks for lookin!

First piece on a fun and tough lady; this is her story!

Finished this sleeve today. This was a project on a client that we’ve all come to love in the shop; he’s struggled with losing his wife a year ago and we worked in some pretty powerful metaphors to create this piece based upon loss, struggle, life, death and hope. The next time you see a guy walking down the street with some dark imagery please give some consideration to what a tattoo might actually mean to that person. Aloha!

Fun start to this sleeve today

First timer got a Nordic shield to honor his lineage and mother. Aloha for lookin!

My first timer started a #murica sleeve. Thanks for lookin!

Had a blast tattooing this #caribeener on the inner arm. Thanks for lookin!

Got to finish this #Polynesian #halfsleeve today. Thanks for lookin!
