“I have always been fascinated with Polynesian art and have been drawing for as long as I can remember,” Samoan tattoo artist Eugene “Eugenius” Ta’ase says. Eugene started his tattooing career on Maui when he moved there from American Samoa and his interest in Polynesian tattoos quickly turned into a passion.
His art is most influenced by the traditional Samoan motifs, but he also incorporates other Polynesian motifs. The result is a fiercely beautiful pan-Polynesian style with a distinct Samoan flavor.
After years of tattooing in Maui and Oahu, he moved to Las Vegas, where he practices his art now. Get in touch him at http://skindesigntattoos.com/
