In Memory of Trevor Frasca
We will never forget our friend, Trevor Frasca, gone much too soon from this Earth. This page commemorates his time at The Collective, and the incredibly dedicated artistry he put into every tattoo. Universally appreciated by his clients for his skill as much as his candor, Trevor came to the Hawaii just after New Years Eve into 2020. He joined the shop at a January Expo in Honolulu, and then moved here in March 2020. Little did we know what a wild ride 2020 would become, but he remained dedicated to tattooing and enjoying life to the fullest. There is no question in our hearts and minds that his commitment to his art and to The Collective family enabled a successful path through the pandemic. Moreso, he was a terrific friend to us all. Despite his tragic, unforeseen loss, we move onward with smiles and teamwork and friendship knowing it is what he would want us to do.
In his own words, March 2020: “I’ve always had a passion for art and drawing, but I fell in love with tattoos when I saw work by Paul Booth in a magazine. After 10 years of being a collector, I decided I wanted to be a tattoo artist so I left college and pursued an apprenticeship. I’ve been dedicated to the craft ever since and am always striving to get better and learn new techniques. I truly love what I do and am grateful to all my clients.”
