Josh Kaleikau

Wsup, my name is Josh and it might sound dumb, but tattooing found me, not the other way around haha…I’ve ALWAYS loved drawing. First day of school, I drew a big ol’ sad face crying lol ‘cuz I wasn’t feelin’ it! In junior high, I started taggin’ with my boy RIF, then pieces. I came to the game a lil’ late, but I believe everything happens for a reason! I did my apprenticeship for 2 years, with respect for the traditions and love for all the old school tattooers that have made tattooing what it is today. One of my goals is to one day give back to tattooing…thanks for providing me a livelihood, real talk.

I’m a dad, a job I take VERY seriously. I’ve got 5 kids and I love them to death! My kids saved my life, and though I would STILL tattoo if it paid minimum wage, I do what I do for them and my wifey.

Working at a “street shop”, I have enjoyed doing ALL styles of tattooing, but I LOVE doing traditional and colorful tattys, and of course, custom script (if you want a graf tat, HOLLERRR, lol). I’m still learning everyday, something I find refreshing and know how truly blessed I am to get paid to do something I love!

“Make good decisions and don’t talk to strangers” hahaha Josh.
