Aloha and welcome to another fun update from our Hawaii Custom Tattoos shop, 434 Tattoo!
Our Waikiki Tattoo parlor is located in the Heart of Honolulu just on the cusp of the famous Ala Moana and Waikiki areas on the Southern Shore of Oahu. Our team is led by Tattoo Adam, who owns the shop and has been doing custom tattooing for over 2 decades in multiple tattoo shops in three different states and also in traveling all around the world. Our team also features Hawaii Tattoo Artist Andy Burley and will soon be joined by Kazan, currently at Tiki Tattoo, which is closing soon. We also have a family member, Karl ʻDoubledownʻ Juthans on ʻsabbaticalʻ and an adventure in his Native land of Canada.
All of our team members are Licensed Hawaii Tattooists by the State of Hawaii Department of Heath. We strive to practice the most up to date and healthiest standards in tattooing. We also engage elements of the industry in various ways to improve our work in the trade. Tattoo Adam will be going to get some work done in Japan from the Japanese Tattoo Master, Horiyoshi III.
“You learn each time you get to watch someone practice his artwork.” Adam commented about Horiyoshi and his experience recently.
Some tips for visitors to Hawaii is to wear sunscreen! “The sun is the enemy to your tattoos.” Adam remarks. And you might want to consider getting inked on your last night because youʻre not going to want to go into the water.
“The ocean is home to millions of micro-organisms and your new piece can get infected because the skin is not healed.”
Whatever you choose to do when visiting Oahuʻs South Shore, feel free to stop by and say hello! Our shop has won Honoluluʻs Best Custom Tattooing Studio for four years in a row, we are home to some of the Best tattoo artists in Hawaii, and Tattoo Adam himself was recently recognized for his service, having been in business for over 20 years.
Youʻll be in good hands! Just ask the Dude getting work done above. Andre/Julio/Jordan, a man of many names found us around this time last year off the web and ended up coming back throughout the year for over 20 different tattoos!
Must be something about that 434 Custom Tattoo…
