Tyler "NEXT" Cabrinha
Tyler Cabrinha was born and raised in Hawaii, and has been drawing as long as he can remember. He was very blessed to have a very artistic father with amongst many many talents he drew, and from the moment Tyler could understand and appreciate his fathers artwork it inspired him from the early ages to draw. From that time on Tyler would draw everyday but only considering it a hobby. It wasn’t into his late teens he was realizing he wanted something more with his art and how could he make a living at it, and until he would end up getting tattooed by a true artist and tattooer out of Kailua, Oahu Dodge Distad. He spent hours getting tattooed by Dodge and getting a first hand look at how sacred, amazing and technical it was to be a custom tattoo artist. So the obsession had been planted and Tyler struggled working many different trades in between trying to find a apprenticeship. He would go on to acrylic painting and selling original paintings on the side of working different jobs full time. It wasn’t till he moved from Oahu to Kauai to live with his father and his wife that Tyler would finally meet his mentor Moon Lake. He was mentored by Moon at “Island Tattoo House of Mana Ink” until he would end up moving back to Oahu to further his career at new shop his friend Palani Fernandez was opening. Tyler would go on to work with and under many great shops and artists during the last ten years Tattooing and attributes his knowledge in art and Tattooing to the artists he has been so blessed to be inspired by and worked with. In 2017 Tyler would end up moving to Logan, Utah and would end up opening Hybiscus Tattoo in January 2019, all thanks to his business partner/ co-owner and aunty Janine Baughn who inspired and pushed him to go for it with her help. Tyler is a versatile Tattoo artist who prides himself in doing many different styles of tattoo’s. Tyler lives and breathes this art and understands how Important a good tattoo is and what it means to the client, “ without the client I don’t have work, so I strive to make the best tattoo every time so i don’t have to worry about my chair being empty.” Hybiscus Tattoo and Piercing carries the fundamentals and care that Tyler lives by in this craft, and is proud of the custom artist’s and piercer that hold his same values all under one roof.
