Art that adorns the flesh…

Halloween Treat: Shaun Kama

October 2nd, 2009 by

Maybe it’s just the time of the season and the fact that Samhain, or Halloween, is one of my favorite holidays, but while researching ahead I was stopped by the amazing art of Shaun Kama.
Shaun has been tattooing for 10 years, and apprenticed with the legendary Mark Mahoney at Shamrock Tattoo Studio in LA. Now, as you can see from the few examples here, ( and these barely scratch the surface, believe me), Shaun is one world class tattoo artist, but brother you don’t know the half of it. If talent was to incarnate in a single human being, Shaun is definitely that incarnation, and you can see even more of his ink slinging par excellence here at Halloween Tattoos. Com.

Shaun has been featured in a veritable who’s who of Tattoo mags as well. Including, Tattoo Flash, Skin and Ink, and Tabu Tattoo.

Besides his talent as a tattoo artist, Shaun has worked in several commercials and films with the likes of, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Janet Jackson, and Missy Elliot as a specialty make-up and temporary tattoo artist, as well as touring with his band, Shaun Kama and The Kings of the Wild Frontier, or Pettycash Junction. FYI, he’s as good a musician as he is a tattoo artist.

Shaun began his artistic career as a regularly commissioned painter and sculptor, something he still keeps up with somehow, and his work in both fields are still on regular display at numerous art shows in Los Angles and Las Vegas.

When not traveling the convention circuit, or touring with his band, Shaun can be found at one of four different tattoo studios he works with:
Dracula Frankenstein

(323) 254-6733

All Hallows Ink & Body Piercing

Shaun can also be reached by phone at: (818) 388-3664 pretty much 24/7 any time of the year.

Whether you can get lucky enough to catch Shaun for some killer ink this month, (or any other month), or you get a chance to catch him on tour with the band, one thing ‘Ol doc can guarantee. Your in for a real Halloween treat.

Peace out, Gang! 😉
