Ryan ”Busta” Boltoon

Something about me

My name is Busta Boltoon.

I’ve been tattooing for about 14 years now in South Africa. I’m known here for my custom color work and I am totally obsessed with all things Tiki!

I have been lucky enough to own a 10 year old studio called The Golden Tiki in Johannesburg, with a second branch on the coast in Ballito, which is going on 4 years. We have a great team of artists.

I was one of the organizers for the Soweto tattoo convention for the first 3 years, promoting health and safety in the less fortunate tattooing community.

Then my personal favorite, ha ha, I have a tattoo fundraising project for bat conservation in South Africa called Tats for Bats.

I love doing all kinds of art from, painting to sculpture and before I started tattooing, I was a special effects makeup artist

I have been playing music most of my life and currently play double bass in a psychobilly band as well as bass in a punk rock band was even in a Sideshow at one point.

I have been very fortunate to have travelled and done guest spots in a few countries around Europe and a lot of the USA.

I am currently sponsored by Axys Rotary tattoo machines.

Tattooing has been a major part of my life for the last 16 years and it will be with me until my last days.
