"Bold simplicity is the key note to good tattoo design." - Sailor Jerry

Kawika Cua was born in Kailua on the island of Oahu. In 2012, he began tattooing at Loyalty Tattoo Kailua under the mentorship of Kevin Read and Josh Crowell. Throughout his career he has learned many styles of tattoos, but considers his specialties to be American traditional, Japanese, and Polynesian. Since the first day he started this journey, Kawika has put his heart and soul into every tattoo and will continue to do so.
