It’s never too late to get a new custom tattoo!
At 434 Tattoo, our Waikiki Tattoo parlor, we have four talented Hawaii tattooists including Tattoo Adam (and his 2 decades of experience), Marko Livingston, Andy Burley, and Karl Doubledown Juthans who can assist you in getting the next or maybe even you first tattoo!
Speaking of first tattoos, this Editor decided to poll a few people and see when they got their first tattoo, including the men of 434 (calendar with Andy and his new Harley on the Cover coming soon). We’ll do this chronologically for sh!ts and gigs…
Coming in first at the age of 13 y/o is Marko Livingston. Don’t worry all you legal eagles, he ‘handpoked’ himself.
Zach, a loyal customer and frequenter of our fine establishment, also got his ink around this time, having gotten his first tattoo in a garage while in the 9th grade. He hid it because his Dad told his family growing up no tattoos until they were 18. As soon as he hit 18, he went and got one for all the world to see!
Tattoo Adam himself got tattooed at the 16, he would shortly join the industry as an apprentice at the age of 17, and go on to tattoo people from all walks of life, all around the world, including the infamous ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson.
This writer got his first tattoo at the age of 30, a ribcage, arm sleeve, chest piece, back piece later and well, it’s safe to say I love it! Our friend Jacob, got his first tattoo a few months ago here at our Honolulu Tattoo studio, at the age of 54! High Five to you buddy for continuing with a tattoo every week since it seems!!!
Note: Andy was not available for comment. You’ll have to ask him yourself.
