Need a tattoo idea that’s en vogue? You might want to check out Inked Magazine online for some inspiration. We highlight a few of their list below.
Single Line Tattoos
The article begins with Minimalist tattoos in general and it doesn’t get much more minimalistic when you continue to scroll to the second trend that is predicted for this year. The bulk of this piece relies on the intricacy the artist creates with a single line and the implied elements in the space that’s left uncovered.
With double-exposure photography taking off as an artform and smartphone technology creating apps to easily take your own double-exposure shots, it’s natural to see the trend mirrored in other art forms including the one we love!
Ice Cube isn’t the only cube make headlines! Created by the famous artist Pablo Picasso, Cubism has also found its way into tattoo. Cubism tattoos anyone?
Check out the whole list at the link at the start of this article to see whatever ideas folks are dreaming of. You might just have a dream for a new piece yourself. When you do, swing by our Waikiki custom tattoo shop 434 Tattoo! We’ll get you covered!
2016 is rolling along and we’re excited to work on some big custom tattoo pieces!
Along with the excitement we have some awesome news, Tattoo Adam (Horiyume)is now available full-time at our tattoo shop in Waikiki 434 Tattoo! This is a great time to start a new tattoo with him as we close out the Winter Season and to take advantage of his increased availability.
Why start thinking about inking now? Why not! Nah, joke, here’s a few tips to consider:
Tattoos are priced and constructed based on the hours it will take to complete. For larger pieces and pieces in complex area of the bodies, more time will be necessary to complete the tattoo.
Adding a little color? While some tattoos (depending on the size) can be completed in one sitting from one to three hours, larger more intricate pieces actually take a considerable amount of time longer. Many backpieces have 24 or more hours, that’s over a days worth of work put into them! For the client’s sake and health, it’s often best to break that up into smaller sessions.
You’re not the only person getting tattooed. A tattoo artist books in advance because shops will often have multiple customers a day (think any other situation where you see someone by appointment) as well as walk-ins. While we want to ink you 24/7, it isn’t always realistic and we want to be sure to offer the best service to all who walk through the doors of our Waikiki Tattoo Shop!
Now come on down and share your next great idea with us. Our artists love to create original custom tattoos and are here to serve us.
