Su’a Sulu’ape Angela

Tattoos have once again become a badge of honor.

I am Sua Suluape Angela, recognized worldwide as the first known woman in history to be taught the ancient Samoan art form of Polynesian hand-tap tattoo known as tatau, and to receive the Samoan chief title of Suluape, which was bestowed upon me by Master Tattoo Artist Suluape Petelo. I have also been blessed to have been taught machine tattooing by Master Tattoo Artist Kinzie Bolson who has been paramount in my knowledge of tattooing. I have been voted Best Tattoo Artist in San Diego multiple times, in several publications.
