Chuck Gordon is a tattooer and owner of Soular Tattoo. In search of a warm island lifestyle, Chuck moved from Colorado to Maui with his wife and two daughters in 2010. He saw a niche on the island for quality tattoos and piercings and decided to pursue his passion of always progressing as an artist and striving to do the best possible tattoo. This was the inspiration behind the name “Soular”. Chuck believes his maximum effort involved in his work would no less share a small piece of his soul in each tattoo. Many years of hard work and focus on quality have built a solid reputation for Soular Tattoo worldwide.
At an early age Chuck realized he had a gift as an artist in several different mediums. As a child, teen, and young adult, he was looking to develop this gift and continue progressing as an artist. Chuck took multiple art classes in school and even after graduating high school chose art as the main focus in his life.
In 2003 Chuck decided to make art a professional occupation and took the opportunity to apprentice as a piercer. Chuck knew this was the perfect opportunity to get his foot in the door to later apprentice for tattooing.
Though this guy can just about tattoo anything you ask him to, he mostly enjoys an illustrative approach to his designs. Chuck’s style focuses on clean, bold line work and just enough black to create the perfect contrast for a tattoo built to last. This is a tried and true formula derived from the styles of traditional American and Japanese designs. Chuck enjoys tattooing just about anything but feels that his strength is best in Neotraditional, Japanese, and ornamental. All of these styles have similar elements allowing some hybrid styles that have a recognizable look. Tattoo lovers and enthusiasts enjoy being able to identify a tattoo as a “Chuck G Tattoo.”
Since 2010 and thousands of working hours, Chuck has developed his craft for tattooing tremendously. He’s a well rounded artist who’s confidence and laid back demeanor makes him easy to work with. The quality of his finished pieces has made him a sought after artist on Maui for several years now.
