Quality Tattoo Artists of SOUTH SHORE INK

Ink Your Story, Forever Told.

Bryce Luning was born and raised in the islands of Hawaii. He is a graduate of the Kamehameha schools. Tattooing was the natural product of his affinity for the arts. Bryce’s father Kerry played a significant role in shaping his artistic development by exposing him to sketching and water color painting, which, led to his love for fishing, pottery, glass blowing and Japanese art. His love for art and the early influence of his father are often seen in the care he gives to each tattoo he creates.

As with many local boys, Bryce has kept a strong relationship with his mom and his siblings, sisters Jess, Nicole, Kelike and Marissa. Spending time with his family is a priority. Growing up in Honolulu, a melting pot of cultural influences led Bryce into the tattoo world much earlier than most. Family members often proudly displayed their tattoos exposing Bryce to the art at a young age. His natural art ability and love for the arts was realized in high school when he excelled in pottery making.

No matter what you are looking for, the guys here will work with you to make sure you get it done. Matt is an amazing artist and takes great pride in his work. Everything you see in the pictures are his work and was hand drawn, no stencils. He stayed super late finishing my piece in one session and I'm very grateful. Highly recommend this shop. It is cash only but there is an ATM a couple doors down.
