The Healing Power of Tattoos

A tattoo artist from Toledo, Ohio, recently made headlines with National Public Radio (NPR) for the the work he does, on his days off!

Brian Finn sets aside time on his days off to work with trauma victims and people who have suffered scars from domestic violence, trafficking, and self-inflicted.

Despite mainstream pop-culture figures seemingly getting a new tattoo each day, there are still a number of stereotypes surrounding the tattoo industry.  It is important to share stories such as these because it is a strong reminder of the beautiful humanity that exists within the tattoo industry.  There will be dicks wherever you go in life but there are far more people like Brian Finn doing amazing work to help and make people’s lives better.

As we progress further into the new century, may views continue to change so that people start to understand that tattoos, as an artform, can be as much about healing as they are about expression.

Tell your story in Ink

Screen Shot 2016-02-06 at 11.04.17 AM

While people collect tattoos for a variety of reasons, it’s always meaningful when a deeper connection is connected to the piece.

This is an excellent time to reflect on the big stories & happenings in your life that you wish to record with your tattoos!  During the Winter months, tattoo artists typically have a bit more time open in their schedules and are happy to get started on these large undertakings.

“What’s the story?” Horiyume Tattoo Adam will ask, not only to guide the customer through the process but to see the entire picture and creative direction in his mind’s eye prior to the undertaking.  The more you share with your artist, the better they can assist with helping you get a truly one of a kind, amazing work of art.

“Your artist is a trained professional who knows what works and what doesn’t.”

Just like you’d ask a doctor for medical advice, ask your tattoo artist for tattoo advice. They can tell you about tattoo placement so that it flows nicely with your body, which is a living, breathing, MOVING canvas. That roaring lion by your elbow might look good when your arm is bent but it’s not going to work when you’re moving your arm.

“You want the tattoo to look good no matter what, and to flow with your movements.”

Trust your tattoo artist for any tattoo, especially when telling the important stories with these larger pieces.  You won’t regret it!

Our Waikiki tattoo studio is open 7 days a week from 10a – 10p, rain, shine, or otherwise. Come on down and let’s talk stories about your next inked story!
