Check out this new report online about what makes up the ink that is tattooed on people to create the permanent tattoo that many people wear.
“When I began, I learned the old school way of mixing your own inks.” Tattoo Adam (Horiyume), proud owner of our Waikiki tattoo shop shares.
Believe it or not, back in the day, people had to mix their own inks, knowing exactly what went into each color, in the exact quantity, and safely. Horiyume was trained in this fashion so that he knew the history and culture of tattooing.
“You gotta know & respect your roots.” he adds.
Times have changed and it seems like a new company offering ink, pops up every month, trying to sell something special. While many companies are reputable, buyer beware because sometimes, some companies don’t do it right or include an ingredient known to have bad side effects ranging from an ugly tattoo to infection that can really do harm to a person’s overall health.
Here at 434 Tattoo, one of the best tattoo shops in Hawaii, we only use products that are safe, legal, and in accordance to the rules and regulations of the State of Hawaii Department of Health. Our team is trained in all the proper protocol to administer tattoos in a healthy fashion and each tattoo artist who walks through our doors to work is licensed by the Department of Health.
“It’s important to me that all of our customers have a great experience here.” Adam adds. “We want this to be one of the happiest places they visit as they created this lasting memory.”
