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.

Part-time Maui resident Thomas Kuloloia-Juan has engulfed himself in the art of Polynesian tatau. Splitting his time between Las Vegas and Maui, Thomas was drawn to sharing his culture through ink after someone shared with him the following motto: “If you do what you love, then you’ll never work a day in your life.” Since that day five years ago, he has never looked back. His passion for the Polynesian tatau, drives him to consistently work at mastering this freehand art form, and has allowed him the freedom to enjoy the lights of Las Vegas and the sands of Maui.
