HANALEI KIALOA

I was born and raised on the island of Oahu, Hawaii in a small town called Waianae. I specialize in Polynesian style tribal art. I've been tattooing for over 8 years now, and In the tattooing industry i notice that people come and go, some more memorable than others, but the mark is permanent. Tattooing is a very intimate experience for me, more so, because I not only share my gift, but I share myself. Tattoos are more than just art. They are scars with stories…some good and some bad. But, it’s how we remember, honor, and cherish the things that mean most to us. It’s a rite of passage, a mark of beautification, a sign of individuality.
