Meet Delshay, one of our old school work artist

The man for nature themed ink & old military tattoos

guest artist

Delshay is a tattoo artist at Mantra Tattoo in Lakewood, Colorado. Native of sunny Hawaii, he started delving in the ink world at an early age. High school saw him get his first tattoo and at age 16 he was the first amongst his classmates to get one.  The lack of formal schooling did not stop this very talented artist who by the motto of practice, practice and more practice has made a name for himself. His birth place has been his main inspiration for nature themed ink seems to be our friend’s favorite.  A fan of camping and collecting sea shells, Delshay also loves to plant his own food. He tells us he’s really into old military tattoos and general old school work, for the value of their history. With nothing in particular, he wouldn’t tattoo, he also states that if the vibe is not right or if he is uncomfortable he will decline to do it.

 “Be good, do good, tip well and watch out for that car.“

Tattooing style

He is considered one of the finest tattoo artists in Hawaii. Delshay likes old school tattoos especially military tattoos, but he is open to ink almost any type of tattoo design for his customers and friends. He also enjoys doing illustrated realism tattoos using a colorful and intricate style while adding a very delicate and soft flare to his work.

He has created some amazing tattoos for our clients in Denver. Check his portfolio out under his artist profile for more awesome work!
