What to Do in Waikiki? Get Some Ink!

Welcome to 434 Tattooour Waikiki tattoo Studio.  If you are looking for something fun and memorable or what to do in Waikiki on your last night, why not consider getting a Hawaii Custom Tattoo?  

Tattoo Adam and our team of talented Hawaii Tattoo Artists  are more than happy to assist you from start to finish with the process.  We offer free consultations to all customers, which means you are more than welcome to come in, talk with us about your ideas, and get help in choosing a design.  We also work with you on placement and how pieces will flow on your body, if for the first time and to also co-exist with other tattoos that you may already have.

We also suggest people stop in for a custom tattoo in Waikiki on their final evening in Hawaii because new tattoos require care and it is recommended to not go in the water or in the sun because you can damage it.  You should wait at least 2 weeks for your skin to heal fully before resuming activities like swimming, tanning, and you should probably stay away from wrestling…

To see a tattooist in action, check out this video of Tattoo Adam working on an Asian Tattoo Background of an existing tattoo sleeve.

Thanks for stopping by online!  Hope you stop by in real Life, if not soon, then the last day of your trip in Honolulu!

The owner of our Waikiki Tattoo Shop, 434 Tattoo, Tattoo Adam left the islands recently to go to Yokohama for some respite and to get his own tattoos worked on by the famous Japanese Tattoo Artist Horiyoshi III.

Adam had this to say about the picture above:
“I like to try and do things that are not allowed in America when i go to other countries, one thing is i like drinking beer on the street and train!

The other is eating meat you cant find on the menu in America, here is a picture of raw horse meat mixed with raw egg, its so Oishi, like fresh sashimi, I have been craving this for years!

I have to admit , I was a little afraid at first, but once you taste it, damn its good! Thank you Hiro san, Akiko, Hata san, and Rei san, this is one memory I will think about for a long time!”

Here we have Adam visiting Japanese Tattoo Parlor, Ink Rat Tattoo.

Hawaii Custom Tattoos: December News

Lots of happenings in December so far and before we get skin deep in it, we just wanted to share a little 411 with all of you about the goings on at 434 Tattoo, the tattoo shop in Waikiki where we specialized in all sorts of work including Hawaii Custom Tattoos.

First off, let’s talk about our amazing tattoo deals in Hawaii!

Right now we have a steal of a deal on Yelp worth $35 off an hour worth of tattooing so instead of $150, when you buy it on Yelp, you score the hour for $115!  Take advantage of this because who knows how long it will last…

We also welcome back the return of Tattooist Andy Burley.  It wasn’t quite time for Andy to ride his motorcycle off into the sunset and he’s back on the set of the tattoo film that is our every day life!  Come and say hello to Andy, the first person to ever finish an old-school apprenticeship with Tattoo Adam.

Speaking of Adam…  Dude left the the building, the island, the country!

Tattoo Adam is on location in Yokohama himself getting more ink done.  When you enter our Honolulu Tattoo studio, you can find pictures of the extensive backpiece tattoo that Adam has that has been worked on by none other than the legendary Japanese Tattooist, Horiyoshi III (Pictured above).  Check out this article to learn more about the master tattoo artist.

Closing out the year and mentioned in posts briefly, our custom tattoo studio in Honolulu won the title of the Best in the custom tattooing business for the fourth year in a row from the Consumer Business Review and as advertised in Oahu’s Midweek Newspaper!  We’d like to give a big mahalo and thanks to all of you, our family, friends, and clientele from all over the world who have helped 434 Tattoo be the best year in and year out.

Now enough talk, let’s get you inked!

Asian Tattoo Designs in Hawaii

This video has Tattoo Adam, Owner of Hawaii Custom Tattoos and Oahu Custom Tattooing LLC. business, 434 Tattoo, going over the process of creating a stencil when a customer comes in with a previously designed idea for a piece.  This customer and friend wanted to do a Samurai style tattoo as you can see in the video.

Notice at the end of the video, Adam says:

“Looks like we’ll get to do a little freehanding too…” Adam and our Waikiki Tattoo Shop are also known for freehand custom tattoos in Hawaii and more.

The Freehand tattoo is truly a custom piece as the artists draws directly on the canvas, your skin, with no stencil involved.  It takes many hours/years of time, energy, and practice to become proficient in this and with over 20 years and counting in the business, you know you’ll be in the best hands with us.

Come down today to our Tattoo shop in Waikiki for your free consultation!

Considering a Face Tattoo?

In recent news, a Pro Wrestler who was paid 15 grand to get a Mitt Romney Tattoo on his face, has decided to get the tattoo removed because Romney has been a “sore loser” about the whole thing.  Dude could handle a losing a campaign but couldnʻt support how the Republican nominee was going on about going down.

Stories such as this makes one question:

Would you tattoo a logo or an endorsement on your body for $x amount of money?  Tattoo removal is a painful process and it doesnʻt even always work so is the immediate gratification worth it?

The topic of tattooing the face is not here and we have discussed it before.  The other day as I (JMAW) was walking down the street, I encountered a young man who had his whole face covered with different designs.  When I say young, he couldnʻt have been more than 25.  The friend that I was walking with said: “Gave up on Life doing something like that at that age.”

“We have an unspoken rule.” Tattoo Adam once shared at our Waikiki Tattoo Studio where we do all types of tattoos including Hawaii Custom Tattoos. “We donʻt tattoo hands, neck or the face if we canʻt see a visible tattoo.”

In many Polynesian cultures, getting a facial tattoo is a right of passage and a ritual undertaken with great honor.  In many cultures period, a tattoo on the face is associated with criminals and is also a right of passage, sometimes coming with honor or shame.  Whatever the purpose of getting a custom tattoo is, be sure to think it through so that you wonʻt have to go through the painful process of removal.

And if itʻs something like giving up, hereʻs some words of wisdom:

“Donʻt hate Life.”  ~ Tattoo Adam

Just like tattoo after-care, things happen in life that require maintenance or healing.  If you are struggling with something, maybe go talk to someone or go for a swim.  We are all for tattoos but just remember one on your face that you will regret later is not so easy to cover-up or erase…

Anyway, from your Homies at your favorite Hawaii Tattoo Studio, 434 Tattoo!
