Story Behind a Tattoo…

People get custom tattoos for many reasons and inspired by many things ranging from souvenir tattoos to dream tattoos to marking symbolic events in their lives and the list can go on and on and on really…

Many people also get spur of the moment tattoos.  While a spontaneous tattoo could be fun, it’s a good rule of thumb to take the time to think about what the story behind your tattoo is, particularly if your going to do a large piece like an sleeve or a body suit.  Having a coherent idea of what you want and why helps the tattoo artist visualize and in the long run will create something that you will not regret having on your body for the rest of your life.

That being said, life is beyond our control and can change as events unfold in ways even a psychic can’t foresee.  So sometimes the story may change.  Even though tattoos are permanent, we do specialize in tattoo cover ups.

So whatever the case is, whatever your story may be, come on down to our Waikiki tattoo parlor located in Honolulu, Hawaii for your free consultation and we’ll get to talking stories about your story!

First Tattoo Tips

If you have never got a Tattoo and have been thinking about getting one, then read on!  If you have one or got bit by the tattoo bug and have many then read on as well!

From Hawaiian Tattooing to Asian Tattooing, there is just so much to choose from at 434 Tattoo, our Waikiki Tattoo Parlor.  Add in the unique vision and skills of a custom tattoo artist and sometimes it is hard to know where to start.

When walking into a tattoo shop, you’ll notice many designs on the walls to choose from, which we call Tattoo Flash.  You can also look through our artists’ portfolios to see pictures of work that we have done in the past.  You can find some of our custom work at our website and also learn more about our Professional Staff .

It is a really good idea that you all ready have a concept in mind before walking in to our Honolulu Tattoo Shop, because that way when the Tattoo artist asks, “was there something you were looking for?” you can then reply, “yes i had a dream about a jaguar, but a black jaguar crawling up my arm.”

If you walk in and have no idea what to do or get, that is very common as well.  And if that is the case, 434 Tattoo recommends you look at everything available on the walls and books in the studio. Sometimes a tattoo design will Jump Out at you, as we like to say, and if that happens, tell the artist, and we can start designing your future Custom Tattoo!

Dream Tattoos

“So this guy comes in non-stop and starts on his arm and one by one it works it’s way down the front of his body to his stomach and gets lower and lower…”

In this day and age, tattoos are being sold like hot dogs and ain’t nothing wrong with that.  In his many years in the tattoo game, Tattoo Adam has seen it all.  As a specialist of just about any type of custom tattoo including Hawaiian Tattooing and Asian Tattoo Designs, he can do just about anything.

One of the craziest stories he has involves a man who had a series of dreams and wanted the images tattooed on his body.  Tattoos on the body aren’t crazy so much as the twists this series of tattoos took  into the Twilight Zone…

“I don’t judge anyone’s tattoos because they mean something to everyone and I respect that.  But I wasn’t going to let the tattoos go any further as it progressed down his body because that’s what it seemed like he wanted…”

Check out this piece by Adam inspired by a dream of a lion tattoo and a much more mellow story.  Contact us today for your free consultation and let us help you make your tattoo dreams come true!
