|What happens when a classical Italian sensibility – embracing the Old World traditions of Michelangelo and the Renaissance – meets Hawai’I’s island culture. In the breathtaking collaborative art of twin brothers Marcello and Alessio Bugagiar, the result is not culture-clash, but glorious synthesis.
Cynthia Conrad is a painter of vintage Hawaiiana in the realistic tradition. Her preferred mediums are watercolor, acrylics and oil paints. Still life paintings of Hawaiian lamps, statues, aloha shirts and kitsch are her favorites, but the exotic fruits, flowers and foliage of Hawaii also interest her as subject matter.

|Mid-Pacific Tattoo started with the flagship location, the yellow plantation house which can be found at 196 Lahainaluna Road, near Front Street in Lahaina. With a couple of years at this successful tattoo studio, we decided to branch out and have a location on Maui’s south shore in Kihei, which is very close to Wailea and Makena. From there more opportunity arose and now we have a total of four top rated tattoo shops, three of which are in Lahaina, West Maui and just a few minutes drive from Kaanapali, Napili, Kapalua and Kahana.
With fifteen professional tattoo artists throughout our four tattoo shops, there really is something for everyone. We offer all tattoo styles including American traditional, neotraditional, Polynesian, tribal, realism, geometric, dotwork, color and black and gray tattoo, and many more. We take pride in our work and are proud to have been voted “Best of Maui” by Maui Island Guide & Driving Magazine for many years in a row and “Best Tattoo Shop on Maui” by MauiTime.
Our story begins with a dream to live on the beautiful island of Maui and completely envelop the Hawaiian and Polynesian culture through the tradition of tattoo. Tommy, who is the owner and long time tattooer with twenty plus years in the business, moved to Maui in 2006. After meeting his wife Lisa and getting married on Maui they decided to move off island. That didn’t last long! After their two children were born, they realized Maui was where they were meant to be. So in 2010, with a toddler and a baby in tow, they made the move and have never looked back.
Make your vacation memories last a lifetime with a new tattoo. We promise, it will be your your favorite Maui permanent souvenir!

It seems that as a nation we are wasting more than 30% of the food we buy. This is difficult to digest, particularly since much of this life-giving resource is still safe to eat, This is extremely bad news since we are now waging a desperate battle to feed all of us. It is going badly and we may soon be in a position where we will have nothing left to bite but butt.
Wasting food in the US is as American as apple pie. According to most involved observers over $400 billion worth of good, safe, nutritious food is wasted in the US every year. The largest percentage of the wasted food in the US happens ... ... MORE
