Horiyoshi III is a living legend tattooist whose work has been studied by aspiring artists of all types of mediums, and or course, current and other accomplished custom tattoo artists as well. Our Hawaii Tattoo Shop‘s own, Tattoo Adam, has had the honor of the experience of being tattooed by Horiyoshi himself!
If you walk around our award winning tattoo studio, 434 Tattoo, you will find pictures from the journeys and travels of Tattoo Adam, including a shot of him being worked on by the Master Tattooist in Japan in the Tebori or traditional Japanese tattooing fashion.
Many books have been written about the Master himself and 434’s own Marko Livingston is the new Rep for a line of T-Shirts featuring Horiyoshi’s artwork. We’ve recently learned of a line of stores opening up to celebrate and commemorate the artwork of the legend! You can learn more about this global chain at its website!
And if you can’t make it to Japan to see Horiyoshi, no worries, we’re not claiming to be him, but we are members of the Horiyoshi family so you can get down with us! We are open every day rain, sun, shine, hail, floods, or tornados (hey we had a tornado in Hawaii a few weeks ago).
