From Hawaii Tattoo Styles With Love: Biomechanical Tattoos

Our Waikiki Tattoo studio has a team of tattooists with years of experience (Tattoo Adam‘s been in the game for nearly two decades), celebrity clientele (Adam’s tattooed Mike Tyson, members of the Chicago Blackhawks, other Pro Sports figures and Marko Livingston‘s inked Rapper T-Pain), and they can do a little bit of everything from tattoo flash to custom tattooing styles, you’ll find what you’re looking for and more.

Including a bit of history…

This writer was curious about how the biomechanical tattoo style made it into tattooing.  Tattoo Adam did not disappoint as he pointed out a book on the shelf by Swiss artist, H.R. Giger, “That’s the guy.” He told me one day while he set up for another appointment.  Note: If you ever meet Tattoo Adam or have met him already you can see the biomechanical work he has had done on himself.

To satisfy the Cliff Notes mentality, biomechanical art is described courtesy of Wikipedia as:

“a surrealistic style of art that combines elements of machines with organics[1]. Rendered with distinct realism, biomechanical art expresses an internal fantasy world, most typically represented with human or animal anatomy where bones and joints are replaced with metal pistons and gears, but infused with muscles and tendons.”

Giger was tasked with developing the concepts and designs for the creatures from Alien.  That movie went on to become a smash success and Giger’s Necromonicon would become a hit in and of itself.  You can find all types of his sculptures for sale online and his books in shops all around.

You can check Tattoo Adam’s tattoos live and in the flesh at our Honolulu Tattoo studio, 434 Tattoo.  We’re open seven days a week from 10a-10p.  Stop on by for a free consultation and to find out about any deals we have going on.  Currently, tattooist Andy Burley is doing $50 off an hour, a Hawaii Tattoo deal you don’t want to miss.

See you in the shop!

Hawaii Tattoo Discounts

Our Waikiki Tattoo parlor, 434 Tattoo, has taken part in offering a number of Hawaii Tattoo Discounts over the years.  In last year alone, our Honolulu tattoo shop has done a Military Appreciation Month in Hawaii, offered discounts to Federal Agents, and has even been featured as one of the daily deals by Groupon!

The tattoo deals are still coming as Hawaii tattooist Andy Burley has a rare opportunity available for anyone interested here at 434 Tattoo

To help people who may be feeling down because of the Ides of March, Andy is offering $50 off his hourly rate through the middle of March.  That’s a huge tattoo savings in Hawaii and a great opportunity to get some work done by the only tattooist to make it through an apprenticeship with Tattoo Adam, Shop Owner, a world-renowned Tattoo Artist who has tattooed for almost two decades, and even tattooed the infamous “Iron” Mike Tyson.

So your “search” for the best tattoo deals in Hawaii is over.  Come on down to the three years running Hawaii’s Best Tattooing Studio Winning, 434 Tattoo!

SB 2398: The Aftermath

Dr. Dre had his aftermath and so does SB 2398, Relating to Tattoo Artists.  This past Wednesday, Tattoo Adam went down to the Hawaii State Legislature, took part in the political process and testified in opposition of the Senate Bill, which proposed for the State Department of Health of Hawaii to contract out for temporary tattoo licenses to out of state tattoo artists in the event of a convention.

Many may misconstrue what our Waikiki tattoo shop Leader was doing.  Like why would Tattoo Adam testify against a bill that is seemingly about a convention?

Truth be told, Tattoo Adam is pro-convention, and his hands were tied because he wasn’t in support of the Department of Health possibly contracting to online services and schools, which are not up to par with the standards that many of the tattooists in the industry are held to.  If that Bill went through, it opened the door for people who bought kits on EBay and passed a test to come in and tattoo our people.  Not cool, so he had to do a little something about that.  And more people should to because poorly crafted policy like that gets passed at every level of government each and every year, impacting all of our people.

And in the case of that bill, it wasn’t fair to our Hawaii tattoo artists, who pay taxes here and have to wait the full time to take the test and be licensed.  At any rate, the ill bill was killed by the Joint Senate Committees.

So let’s get on with a cool ass legit convention, eh!!!

 

Hawaii Tattoo: Relating to Tattoo Artists

It’s that time of year again, where the 25 Senators and 51 Representatives of the Hawaii State Legislature hui it up and find ways to shake and bake the Hawaii Revised Statutes based on information (or who who knows maybe some misinformation) they receive from lobbyists, the various City and County and State entities, and last but at times treated like least, the public.

The Hawaii State Legislative Session is officially 60 days long, with recess days making it span a little over/around four months.  Alot can happen in that small period of time, some good, and unfortunately, some things can slip through the cracks.

In 2009, the Coalition for Safe Tattooing in Hawai’i, including members such as long-time Hawaii tattooist and tattoo shop owner, Peggy Sucher, Trisha Allen, and Tattoo Adam, of our very own Waikiki Tattoo Shop, 434 Tattoo, polled over 100 local tattoo shops and determined that a cap of 40 artists would be ideal for a convention.

This year, there is a Senate Bill in particular, SB 2398, Relating to Tattoo Artists, that is making some waves amongst the Hawaii tattoo community here in Hawaii because of what it addresses.  It has also opened some old wounds in that we’ve learned there are unfortunately some loopholes out there regarding conventions in Hawaii.

While SB 2398 addresses licensing, an idea out there is to use it as a vehicle to insert an amendment to the law so that people don’t slip through the loophole and we end up with a convention that has too many artists.  While we are pro-tattoo, we are more pro-health and crowding a convention with too many artists would not be sanitary.

Stay tuned and get involved in the issues you care about!  You can submit testimony for this Bill here.
