Is it time for you to get a New Tattoo? Before getting a tattoo, there are a number of things to consider.
1. Can you live with it?
A tattoo isn’t like a t-shirt. Once you get it, you have it for Life. Make sure that you can live with your new piece. While it is possible to get it removed (laser tattoo removal in Honolulu picture above), the procedure can be painful and is expensive. Might as well take the time to get something tattooed that will be lasting, and quite possibly equally or more so painful once and stick with it!
Tattoo Adam, Owner and President of 434 Tattoo, along with the other talented artists at our Honolulu Custom Tattoo studio, will take your idea and run with it, but something you might want to consider and be open to is how the tattoo Flows on your body.

Tattoo placement is important because the skin is a living, moving canvas. You don’t want to get something that only looks great if your body is bent and twisted (a smiley face on the knee that looks like a blur when straight). You want it to look good all the time! So heed the advice of your professional and licensed Hawaii Tattooist!
3. Go Custom or Go Flash
Tattoo Flash are the pieces you will see featured in shops hanging on the wall. There is nothing wrong with Flash if you’re okay with having the same thing as someone else. Custom tattooing is our specialty and involves a little more from the artist. The beauty of a custom piece is that no one else will ever have the same thing as you.

You can always bring in pictures, ideas, and more to work with your tattoo artist on what you want and either way, whether it’s custom or flash or something you found on the Internet, you can be sure to go home with something that you are stoked about!
Your tattoo artist is an artist, a professional, and does this for a living. Please consider the cost. We are not in the business to rob you and are certainly fair, but we have to do what we have to do. Our team is willing to work with you on price, please be willing to work with us. A backpiece isn’t going to be $5…
With that, we are open 7 days a week, from 10a-10p, so please come on down for your free consultation at our award winning Waikiki Tattoo studio and get started on your new tattoo!
