Sailor Jerry Tattoos

 

 

 

One of the most famous Tattoo Artists of all time is Sailor Jerry.  Not enough can be said about what he was doing at the time and how it has impacted generations since and style since.

While his iconic work is worn by countless people who chose the design from tattoo flash off the wall, rarely does one get to see an actual piece done by the man himself these days.  Until now…

Steven V.’s custom tiger tattoo by Sailor Jerry, was done 40 years ago in Chinatown of Honolulu Hawaii.  Sailor Jerry is not only one of the most famous tattoo artists of all time, it’s also one of the most famous Hawaii Tattoo Artists of all time, and his shop was in the Chinatown area at that time.  
Steve was 15 at the time and this tattoo has stood the test of time, still looking good 4 decades later.  

Flashback Fun Fact: For sale in Chinatown at the time was elephant weed joints laced with opium.  

Thanks for stopping by Steve!  If anyone else wants to roll through and show us a piece by a legend, please do!  Better yet, come get tattooed by one of our team led by Tattoo Adam, who has been tattooing for nearly 22 years.  In 40 years, you can compare notes with others who’ve been tattooed by Adam and the artists here at our Waikiki Tattoo studio, 434 Tattoo!

See ya soon!

Colin Kaepernick’s Tattoos

The San Francisco 49er’s Quarterback Colin Kaepernick made waves for many reasons last year.  The signal caller usurped former number draft pick Alex Smith for the starting job mid-season last year when Smith went down with an injury and never looked back, leading the 49er’s within a breath of the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history.

Colin Kaepernick’s tattoos have also made waves in the media since his days at the University of Nevada and he’s not looking back with them either, getting more ink by the season, and not caring about what people think about his tattoos.

Kaepernick, who recently posed in ESPN’s somewhat controversial body issue put his tattoos on display and painted an even bigger target on his back this season among opposing player’s and including some teammates, upset over his wearing a Miami Dolphins cap a few weeks back, and not understanding his choice to go nude in ESPN’s magazine.

Kapernick’s tattoo artist Nes Andrion is enjoying his client’s newfound fame and has been inking the QB since he called plays in college.

Hawaii Tattoo Artist Adam Siehr knows a thing or two himself about tattooing athletes.  Tattoo Adam’s work can be found as one of Mike Tyson’s tattoos and he has also tattooed members of Chicago Blackhawks and a host of other celebrities.

Adam’s Waikiki tattoo studio 434 Tattoo is an award-winning studio that has also seen the likes of Grammy Award Winning Rapper T-Pain walk through its doors and get tattooed.

You don’t need to have a million dollar arm, a Grammy, or groupies to get tattooed by our team of Hawaii Tattooists, just come on down and schedule an appointment.  All consultations are free and we are more than happy to assist you with your tattoo needs.

So what are you waiting for?  Roll on down and score an awesome tattoo at our Honolulu Tattoo shop!

In our last piece, we showed Tattoo Adam designing a custom tattoo stencil at his Waikiki Tattoo studio 434 Tattoo.

To give you the contrast between designing a stencil on paper and directly on the skin, check out this video we took in the past that features Tattoo Adam doing some freehand tattoo work.

434 Tattoo is open 7 days a week, rain or shine, at 434 Ena Rd. in the Ala Moana and Waikiki area of the island of Oahu.  Consultations are free and welcome.  Come on down and check us out.

We’ll be happy to ink ya!

Designing a Tattoo

Tattoo Adam, Owner and President of one of Hawaii’s best tattoo studios, the Waikiki Tattoo shop 434 Tattoo, has done just about everything that you can do in his 20 plus year career as a custom Tattoo artist.

Adam has tattooed all over the world, from sneaking onto military bases and tattooing the servicemen and women out of someone’s room in Okinawa to learning from and getting tattooed by Japanese Tattoo Legend Horiyoshi III.

Over the years he has also developed in many different styles including Old School and New School tattoos, Japanese and Asian Tattoos, and Hawaiian and Polynesian tattooing.  From time to time, Adam will freehand pieces and in this video, he take the time to develop a stencil using something he created previously and some new ideas that the customer had.
