Adam came to Sweet Trade Tattoo after falling in love with the island of Maui in 2012. Adam and his wife, Athena, came to Maui for their honeymoon and decided quickly that this was the place for them. After falling in love with the ocean, they returned home to sell everything they owned and Adam, his wife, and their two dogs made the long trip over. Adam has been a professional artist for over 20 years and loves nothing more than to talk about art and engage in any kind of art activity.
Monica Painter is a San Francisco Bay Area native with over ten years of experience in the arts. She lives with her husband and scrappy orange cat. When she’s not washing sand out of her bikini or making up silly ukulele songs, Monica strives to create classic tattoo designs that will remain bold for a lifetime. Her work spans from Colorful Flora and Fauna Tattoos to American Traditional Tattoo designs and everywhere in between. Each piece she creates is uniquely designed to compliment the wearer.
