Tebori tattooing is the traditional Japanese style of tattooing by hand.


It was how the masters of old created intricate bodysuits and more depicting Japanese legends and beliefs.  Though the tattoo machine has grown in popularity over time, tebori is still a meaningful and relevant practice, with far fewer artists practicing the tradition.

Guess what?  Though it would be cool if you did, you don’t have to go to Japan to get tebori because Tattoo Adam, also known as Horiyume, practices tebori in 434 Tattoo our Waikiki Tattoo studio!

A few years back, with the help of some members of 434 Tattoo Ohana, a private space (pictured) was created to allow for traditional japanese tattoo sessions.  If you are interested in tebori and would like to learn more about getting a tattoo in this style, please feel free to contact us at the number or email below.  We’d be more than happy to assist you with any and all of your tattoo questions and needs!
