I attended the 7th Annual PIAE (Pacific Ink & Art Expo) in Honolulu Hawaii for the first time! It was also my first time on the island. Snorkeling in Hanauma Bay was amazing. Here's an excellent snorkeling guide if you happen to be in the area.
The tattoo expo had a huge lineup of amazing all stars, some of my favs like Matt Matik, Samantha Ford, Laura Jade, and Julie L’ecuyer. There were live dance performances, music, painting, and an all around good vibes throughout the event.
My favorite part of the expo was the afterparty barbecue on the beach. I don't think i've ever seen that many full body tattooed people in one place with such a chill, friendly atmosphere. See if you can spot my tiny head in the group pic!I
