Did you know that Tattoo Adam got his start as an apprentice in Milwaukee? While there his apprenticeship was old school and included mixing drinks with Crown for the Bikers who owned the place.
Then he made his way to Sin City aka Las Vegas, where he learned the arts of the carneys working there, and was the top pick of all the tattooists there and was selected by “Iron” Mike Tyson to ink a custom tiger tattoo on the boxing champ.
Finally, he touched down and became a 808 tattoo artist where he helped put the walls up at Waikiki Tattoo Shop Tattoolicious and also helped Sugarbox gain some fame, before realizing his dream of owning a Honolulu tattoo parlor, 434 Tattoo.
