2022 event:

Regrettably we will not be hosting the full-scale event in 2022, but we do have a friend coming to town for a single-venue intimate evening of entertainment. Featuring Jakob Nowell, son of Bradley Nowell (SUBLIME) and 4 local bands.  [6/7/2022]

Aloha!  So if you follow us on instagram, you'll see that we're aiming for next year to have the full event. This year we will once again just have some online activities. New shirt designs coming soon, and the annual art show will happen again!  Possibly mid-summer, maybe a little later. getting a late start on putting the word out, but you can help!  please share this graphic with your favorite tattoo artist! For now, Stay safe and thank you for all the support!   [4/23/2022]

2021 event:

Aloha friends. So we are working on creating an art gallery. Something that will feature talented artists from the State of Hawaii as well as many from around the world. It is unlikely to be finished in time for this June however.

Our plan is to post some photos from past events on June 12th and sprinkle in a few brand-new items as well. Keep an eye on our social media pages for more on that. Stay safe and thank you for all the support!   [6/1/2021]

* LINK TO THE BRAND-NEW ART GALLERY PAGES *

New to the website!

Features samples of past art shows too.

2020 event:

With Covid-19 requiring the whole planet to pivot, we ended up learning how and having just a safe livestream event in 2020.  Below is the schedule and an embedded video (backup link here) to a recording that we posted after the fact.  It's not the same as the real deal but we felt it was far better than nothing, so give it a look and enjoy the 6 hours we managed to pull off. Unless the DJ portion continues to get flagged for copyright claims.
(When that happens we try to go in and mute that section, but it affects availability so let us know if it stops working?)
