Head over to Vice.com to check out a feature on the legendary sensei and Japanese Tattoo Master Horiyoshi III.
Our Waikiki Tattoo studio, 434 Tattoo, has a unique connection with the master tattooist. Owner and Lead Artist Tattoo Adam Siehr has been a long-time student of this great teacher and artist, having visited Yokohama, Japan, on many occasions to learn and get custom tattoos as well.
Horiyoshi III even gave Adam the honor of a custom name, Horiyume (“Curving Dream”) and Adam has begun practicing the Traditional Japanese Tattooing or tebori.
The video is worth anyone’s time who is interested in learning more about tattoo traditions and the legend himself. For all your other tattoo needs on Oahu, visit our Hawaii tattoo studio 7 days a week! Walk-ins are welcome though appointments are a greatly appreciated.
