Specializing in the Polynesian Tattoo
Island TAT Evolve was founded in 2003 with a commitment to beautiful body art and superior customer
service. We understand that a tattoo is a lifelong commitment, and our paramount priority is to ensure
that every client leaves our studio completely satisfied with their new design. To that end, we have
built our business on three pillars: Technical mastery / Artistic excellence / Significance and story
Collectively, our artists are equipped with over 50 years of tattooing experience and have traveled
throughout Polynesia, Asia, and North America to continue mastering the culture and meanings of tattoo
Renowned for our attention to service and detail, we have had the privilege of tattooing celebrities & athletes such as Ray Lewis (Ravens), Rey Maualuga (Bengals), Lofa Tatupu (Seahawks), Jidenna (Rapper), Iakopo (Reggae artist) and more.
More significantly, we have been honored to be chosen as the official spiritual tatauartist for the Ali’i Nuiof Polynesia – the King of Polynesia, anointed by the Highest King by the Elders and Chiefs. His celebrated bloodline reaches back to before his tutu,King Kamehameha. It is in fact the Tahitian word tataufrom which we derive the very word, tattoo.
Indeed, our artists have tattooed kings and chiefs across Polynesia, earning unrivaled experience and knowledge of the culture for which we have the utmost respect and admiration. The art and tradition of Polynesian tattooing is a sacred practice that we are blessed to study and advance.
We hold dear our responsibility to design tattoos for our clients with a deep spiritual foundation, and also to convey to them the deep history, significance, and beauty of the traditional art we create.
Every piece we create is unique to the client and his or her story, informed by millenniaoftradition, and backed by a fierce devotion to excellence.
