The Golden Tiki is an established brand with its roots in Johannesburg South Africa. Now, launching in Ballito KZN, the tiki is hitting the beach. 2 experienced tattoo artists head up the shop - Ryan Busta Boltoon and Hilton Hobbs.
Ryan "Busta" Boltoon
Busta got the apprenticeship of his dreams at a well respected studio known for its incredible talents and work ethics. After qualifying as a tattoo artist, and filled with wanderlust, he made his way to the Mother City of Cape Town to explore life by the coast. With ever the gypsy heart, Busta moved back to Jozi and opened his very first shop, ‘The Lil Shop ‘o Horrors.’
Then came the studio that established Busta as a leader and innovator in the South African tattoo industry – The Golden Tiki. Busta has tattooed all over the world including America and Europe.
Hobbs is a South African tattoo artist and piercer. He has been tattooing & piercing for the past 16 years. Hilton tattooed in London for 8 years where he experienced some of the greatest tattoo conventions in the world, he has also mingled with the likes of Kat Von D, Ami James & Tim Henderix.
