Rosie Camanga was a photographer in Honolulu prior to WWII. In 1944 he secured a tattoo position by showing his artistic ability by tattooing his own leg without a stencil. He went on to produce over 400 sheets of hand drawn flash & opened his own shop. He often collaged sheets with images he liked, which he’d clipped from a magazine or assembled from previous designs, which regularly depicted personal sentiments . He continued to draw after he stopped tattooing
