Tattoo Artist Takashi Matsuba will be working a guest spot at our Waikiki Tattoo Studio 434 Tattoo starting from July 30, 2015! Takashi exclusively practices Tebori, the traditional form of Japanese tattooing. In recent years, Tattoo Adam, Owner and President of our Hawaii custom tattoos shop created a space dedicated to tebori tattooing.
With Takashi coming to Honolulu as a guest artist at our studio along with taking some time at the upcoming Pacific Ink & Art Expo, this is as close to an authentic, traditional Japanese tattoo experience that you can get outside of Japan! Though most of the outlining of the piece is done with a machine, all of the shading is done with in the traditional handpoking style.
Check out Takashi’s website Runin Tattoo for more samples of his work and to learn more about this exciting artist! To schedule an appointment, check out the details below. We located at 434 Ena Rd. and are open 7 days a week, from 10a – 10p.
