ABOUT THE ARTIST
Shaun Kama was born in Heidelberg, Germany to two parents who served during the Vietnam War. His father is a Native Hawaiian and his mother is of Native American & European descent. At age 19, he moved to Los Angeles and began his tattoo apprenticeship under world-renowned artist, Mark Mahoney at the original Shamrock Studios in the early 90’s.
Shaun has been tattooing professionally for over 3 decades. His passion for creating art that blends themes of fantasy, horror, and humor has led to his reputation as “The King of Halloween Tattoos”. Shaun’s work is bright as well as dark and edgy, with incredible detail and vibrant color. He is a regular on the horror, comic, and tattoo convention circuit, traveling all over the USA. His home base is in Las Vegas, NV.
An avid painter and illustrator, Shaun frequently creates commissioned original artworks for his clients. He also has two coloring books, "Cemetery Picnic" and "Spooky Treats", and a Day/Night Journal, all published by Blood Bound Books in bookstores now.
Shaun has embarked on his latest business venture as a partner in CROWS NEST EVENT TATTOOING. With a keen eye for innovation, CROWS NEST EVENT TATTOOING provides mobile tattoo units, boasting up to 10 artist stations per unit. This pioneering endeavor brings a bespoke tattoo experience as an exclusive add-on feature to a diverse array of events, spanning from vibrant music festivals to prestigious corporate gatherings and intimate private parties.
