Artists: Mike Ledger“No one knew who I was when I moved to Hawaii,” says Mike Ledger. “I really had to work my way up from nothing again.” Originally from Farmingdale, New York, Ledger went from having a three-year waiting list to starting from scratch. “I had to prove myself and get accepted by the locals in Hawaii,” he remembers. Now he’s back to a waiting list.

Inspired by his grandfather who had a full body suit, Ledger began his apprenticeship at 16 and has been inking for almost 20 years. His specialty (thanks to Granddaddy) is large-scale body suits, mostly Asian-inspired, and the occasional portrait work and photo-realism. Mike Ledger Tattoo resembles an upscale gallery setting, as Ledger’s paintings decorate the walls, creating an ambience that’s less tattoo parlor and more modern chic. But it’s really not about the shop. “My clientèle needs a private, secure setting where they can feel comfortable spending the number of hours they do with me,” says Ledger. “I want them to walk away not only with a great tattoo but also remembering it as a great experience in their life.”GO: The Hideaway Bar, 1913 Dudoit Ln., 808-949-9885.
