This past weekend @ Cycle City Hawaii; Full Throttle Hawaii, Defend Hawaii, Eternal Ink & Cycle City Hawaii hosted Round 3 of the “Best On The Block” series. Round 3 was “Polynesian Tattoo” style category, so we had 5 talented artists compete against each other and time for the opportunity to compete in the Pacific Ink & Art Expo Competition, plus a Defend Hawaii Design Contract & Cash Prizes!
4 incredibly respected judged and practitioners of ancient and modern Tatau and Kakau were in attendance for the best on the block series held at Cycle City Hawaii and Full Throttle Tattoo Hawaii.
Tattoo Rich, Su’a Peter Suluape, Su’a Suluape Toetuu Aisea & Keone Nunes were our 4 honorary judges. Mahalo to all of you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to come and moderate the next generation of artists.
