Star Wars, Tattoos, & Apprentices

The world, particularly the internet, has been a buzz with the new Star Wars movie that is coming out on Dec. 18.  Seems like every day there’s some new piece of news, seconds of footage, & more that has audiences hungering for the Force to be with them. Wonder if there will be an influx of people with new Star Wars tattoos?

Something about Masters, Jedi & Sith alike, and their apprentices, eh?

Speaking of apprenticeships, Horiyume Tattoo Adam has had a number of people aspire to apprentice and become tattoo artists but only a handful have ‘graduated’ and become full-fledged tattootists.  It’s a tough process that requires hard work, dedication, artistic interest, & talent.

“I was brought up in the old school tattooing world so I teach that along with the current methods.” Adam shares.

Meet Tiff Domingo. A Kauai native by way of Oregon & Pennsylvania, with stops across the continental US along the way, Tiff’s been with our Waikiki Tattoo Shop ohana since August of this past year and got licensed with the state in July of this year.

Tiff has been working hard to make it in her apprenticeship and is currently on the journey.  Pictured above, you’ll find Tiff undertaking one her apprenticeship tests: putting a tattoo on herself under the watchful eye of Horiyume.

Tiff likes & aspires to create new traditional pieces, sacred geometry tattoos, 3-D biomech tattoos, and portrait tattoos. She is currently working on developing her flash in addition to her duties at the shop.  To follow Tiff’s progress and see some of her art, check out her Instagram @tiffany024.

We are pulling for Tiff to rise up in the ranks of tattooing.  Under the guidance of Adam’s two plus decades in the tattoo industry, the sky could be the limit.

Custom Tattoos For Everyone

Tattoos are everywhere!

sprint-all-in
David Beckham, Sprint’s new spokesperson

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!  Our team has a diverse background and is led by Tattoo Adam, who has tattooed for over 20 years.

Convention Season in Hawaii – The First Annual Hawaii Cannabis Expo

Screen shot 2015-07-20 at 3.24.40 PM

The First Annual Hawaii Cannabis Expo was held in Honolulu, Hawaii, this past weekend!

Our Waikiki tattoo shop recently had the pleasure of inking one of the State Representatives from New Hampshire, who have been at the forefront of policy making related to Marijuana, in particular in decriminalizing this herbal medicine that has been used by humanity through its history.

Hawaii currently has 13,000 active, registered medical marijuana patients.  With the evolving stance about medical marijuana and dispensaries here in Hawaii, dispensaries are estimated to bring in an additional $5 million in revenue to the State of Hawaii.

Many feel that it’s only a matter of time before this is fully legalized and following in the footsteps of Colorado and Washington, particularly with both States reporting huge windfalls because of the initiative.

Stay tuned for more info on this issue as we watch how it all unfolds!

Aloha and in the meanwhile, come on down and get your ink on with the talented team here!  Led by Tattoo Adam, a 20+ year veteran in the game, we’ll be featuring a special guest tattoo artist Takashi, who will be here for another convention coming up, the Pacific Ink & Art Expo!
