Japanese tattooing is very near and dear to our hearts here at 434 Tattoo, our Waikiki custom tattoo shop.

A few years ago, Tattoo Adam was recognized by the legendary Japanese tattoo master Horiyoshi III with the name Horiyume, which recognized Adam’s commitment to the art, his years of service, and dedication to improve.  One ways that Horiyume does that is by practicing the artform, in multiple fashions.

“Sensei (Horiyoshi III) will practice painting every day to continue working on the art.” Horiyume comments.

If you are interested in getting a traditional Japanese style tattoo in Hawaii, we have multiple options available through Horiyume for you.  The experience of getting a traditional Japanese tebori tattoo is but one of example how Horiyume can provides custom Japanese tattoo artwork for clients.

“It’s a bit more relaxing, almost like a massage.” One client remarked in reference to his experience with Tebori.

The sacred connection between tattooing is often lost in today’s popular culture but the roots of our traditions hold value to the holistic being whether they can be seen or not.
