Finally, the Sun has come back to Gemini. This Gemini Editor is a bit stoked on that because the cycles of Pisces and Taurus were a bit rough at times…
Return of the Tattooist
You know who, what, why, and when is coming back!?!?!?
Adam and his family will be returning from their adventure in the Philippines next week to Hawaii and our Waikiki tattoo shop. The entire 434 Tattoo Familia is excited and I’m sure all of our friends are stoked for his return as well. While Adam is probably excited to see everyone too, please be sure to call to set up your appointments because this summer season is already busy and with Adam’s return, it will only pick up!
Did Someone Say Food Truck?
In addition to plying his trade as a Custom Tattoo Artist in Hawaii, our team member, Marko Livingston, is hard at work on some other artistic ventures. You can find some of his handcrafted work, which is available for purchase on Etsy.
And coming soon to a corner near you…
The Tropical Tribe lunchwagon! Marko started tagging this exciting new meals on wheels machine last week and should be finishing it up soon. To get a sneak peek, stop on by Jazz Minds Cafe, to see Marko’s work in the lot.
And in Other News
Doubledown celebrated his birthday earlier in the Month and to mark the occasion he tattooed himself! It’s not the first time he tattooed himself but he did have a few comments to share after doing the deed.
“I think it hurts a little less because I can ease up if it gets too sore. When someone else tattoos you, they don’t know what you’re feeling as it’s going on.”
Ouch! Well, the Dude is almost suited so it’s safe to say he enjoys tattooing and getting tattooed.
Joe Moore Moment
“And finally, did you know…” To borrow from long-time Hawaii News Anchor Joe Moore at the end of his broadcast “That we had the Eric Minugh, son of an Old-Timer drop in?”
Lee Roy Minugh is an Old School Tattoo Artist and Eric stopped by to share some pics of his Dad and Tattoo Flash. Eric shared stories of how Lee Roy got to do a Tattoo live on The Today Show years ago and also tattooed the numbers on monkeys who were used in research.
“He got bored with numbers so he started putting roses and other designs on them.” Eric shared.
With that, you should drop in and get some monkeys and roses tattooed on you! We are open 7 days a week from 10a – 10p.
See you soon!
