The tattoo artist Aaron K. Kai has taken wave designs into a totally new level!
The curves and waves have attracted him since high school where he used to draw waves and surf during his free time. That is pretty common for a Hawaiian kid. But now living in the Bay area, Kai’s waves have taken the internet by storm and infiltrated our pop culture.
In a interview with The Creators Project he gave a glimpse into his process “It’s simple, starting with layouts of each wave in pencil and then I determine how they will fill the space. Once the curves are shaped within the waves, I paint starting with the lightest to darkest colours and finish with outlines.”
With his own style he reached mural in Pow Wow Hawaii and brands from Adidas to Ralph Lauren. If you liked his work and want to know more, don’t forget to follow him on his Instagram!
