Katie Girl

Paia Tattoo Parlor


Born and raised on the island of Maui, Katelyn loved drawing cartoons (Avatar:The Last Airbender, Jimmy Neutron, Dexter Laboratory, etc.) and anime (Inuyasha, Sailor Moon, One Piece, etc.) and fell in love reading her manga in a small corner of the bookstore. She loved to create things with her hands, whether it be cosplay, painting, or drawing her favorite characters. However, there was a time when Katelyn didn't have faith in her ability in art and thought no one in the world would share her passion for anime/cartoons. So, she left it on the back burner, never wanting to pursue the dreams she didn't know she had.

In 2018, life decided that Katelyn needed to do something with heself, so life decided to light a fire for her. It was only a matter of time before she realized that she wanted to go for an apprenticeship on the island she grew up on, not knowing what was in store for her. Paia Tattoo Parlor decided to take her on as an apprentice, and in 2020 she was given the opportunity to work in the tattoo shop full-time; she took it. She was given the name “Katie Girl” in the shop and continues to hone her skills to this day.
