From retired international soccer star David Beckham’s campaign with Sprint to new stories of tattooed celebrities popping up[ every day (seriously, a Google search of Tattoo News and you’ll see mention of Kendall Jenner, Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, & Shia LeBouf all sporting new ink this week (8/10-14/2015), tattoos are going mainstream like wildfire!
Open up Instagram and there are constantly photos trending of tattoo conventions, custom tattoo work, tattoo flash sheets & art, as well as new, fresh tattoos all over the feed. Is this a new age of tattoo acceptance? Or like everything else, is this just a trend where this is what’s popular?
It’s probably a little bit of both. Hopefully, acceptance and tolerance prevails during the next wave for getting inked isn’t so popular.
AND no matter the case, we always practice great tattooing and tolerance of people from all across the board at our Waikiki tattoo studio. We’re open 7 days a week, rain or shine, though it’s mostly shine in Hawaii, especially this hot ass Summer!

This is a wonderful opportunity to get an authentic Japanese tattoo experience outside of Japan. In recent years, we have developed a tebori space in our Waikiki Tattoo Parlour. This quiet space will allow you to get the most out of your tebori experience so if you’re remotely curious, come on down and check us out. We’re open 7 days a week, appointments preferred though walk-ins are always welcome, and we offer free consultations.
Japanese tattooing and Japanese tattoo culture are core to our shop. Though experienced and talented in all forms of tattooing, we have a particular passion and connection to the vein of the artform that stems from Japan.
Early on in his life, our waikiki tattoo studio ownerTattoo Adamwas exposed to tattoos & art. When he saw the Japanese full-body tattoos, a passion developed. Adam has since been to Japan countless times, experiencing tebori himself from the master Horiyoshi III.
We are located at 434 Ena Road & open from 10a – 10p. Call us today to arrange a consultation or appointment.
