Pride Ink founder David “Boze” Kapoi has been leaving his mark on clients for over 10 years. With his free-hand, traditional Polynesian tatau designs, this Maui artist is in constant pursuit of perfecting his craft. Expanding his repertoire to include Asian tattoo’s fused with Polynesian designs, Boze’s tattoo’s are truly one of a kind pieces of living art.
Profiled in the LA Times, Maui Time and more, Boze’s tattoos are rooted in his heritage, upbringing and surroundings, and has afforded him the opportunity to tattoo across the State of Hawaii and the West Coast. Boze’s passion for his craft, and the originality he brings to every tattoo, has also led to an extensive list of clientele anxious to add a piece they can claim with confidence is as unique as they are. Maui will always be home for Boze, but the beauty of his tattoos are without boundaries and allow every recipient to showcase their story with the world.
In 2013, Boze was awarded the Mayor’s Small Business Award for Young Small Businessperson of the Year for Maui County.
