Tattoo Adam Siehr began tattooing over two decades ago. A lifelong fan of Asian art, in particular Asian Tattoos, he found his calling early on.

“I started my apprenticeship at the age of 17.” shares Siehr.

Over time, Adam has developed a signature custom tattoo style and also practices the ancient traditional form of Japanese tattooing, or tebori.

Adam’s work has been featured in local, national, and international publications, both online and in print.  He also has a strong base and loyal following.  “Adam’s known for his koi so I got one!” a proud customer exclaims.

New Tattoo for the Summer

Interested in getting a new tattoo in Hawaii as we head for the summer months? Come by our shop 7 days a week and make an appointment to get your new classic today!

Summer is a very busy time for the tattoo industry in Hawaii.  People from all over the world come to enjoy the weather and vacations are great times for a tattoo.

By setting an appointment, we can make sure that you are good to go on the date and time of your choosing.  It’s also good because you can talk to the artist or our team in advance in order to get your questions answered.

You never know what you might learn, like it’s best to wait until the end of your trip to get a tattoo. You don’t want to go in the ocean with fresh ink, nor do you want to be in the sun for a prolonged period of time.  The microscopic wildlife in the ocean could cause an infection and the sun could severely damage the piece because the sun is your tattoo’s public enemy number one.

Reminder: Wear sunscreen even if your tattoo is healed! 

So come on down this summer and talk with the professionals at our Waikiki tattoo studio!  We are here to make you happy and create amazing art that you’ll be stoked to wear for life!

Aloha!
