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.

Hawaii Tattoo Studio: This is Your Life

“Every time there was a convention, people would want a Tasmanian Devil Tattoo.  Golf event, Tasmanian Devil with a golf club.  Doctors, Tasmanian Devil with a stethoscope.  Computer conventions, they never came in…” ~ Tattoo Adam

Welcome the blog of our Hawaii tattoo Studio, 434 Tattoo!  Founded and owned by Tattoo Adam, our tattoo shop in Waikiki is in the Heart of Honolulu, very near to both the famous Waikiki Strip and Ala Moana Beach Park.  If you are looking for traditional tattoo designs, Polynesian tattoo styles, Asian ink, and more, we can develop anything in custom tattooing.

When considering a new tattoo, you want to be sure in what you are getting.  Recent studies have shown that many young people regret their early tattoos and tattoo removal surgery is both costly and may not work…

At our Waikiki tattoo shop, we offer you and anyone who comes through our doors a free consultation and free changes to artwork.  In fact, all artwork is free.  You only pay once you get tattooed!  If you want to put money down ahead of time, that is counted towards your overall charge as well where some places will require you pay for the consultation and then later charge you more.

An interesting fact, Tattoo Adam, has never changed his price on 1 inch lettering since he began.  It’s a very old school way of doing things and Tattoo Adam is certainly one to respect tattoo tradition.  On a side note, he is not a fan of doing arm bands or Tasmanian Devils (see above) so the price on arm bands may have gone up…

We are located at 434 Ena Rd. and feel free to stop by, take a look at our portfolios and ask any questions that you have.  Our talented Hawaii tattoo artists are here to help you in having an awesome tattoo experience!

Hawaii Tattoo Flashback: Viva Las Vegas…

Tattoo Adam, owner of Waikiki Tattoo Shop, 434 Tattoo, has seen his share of (insert here what there is to see) in the 20 years that he has worked in the Tattoo Industry.  His story, etched on the bodies of hundreds of thousands of people, has taken him from his humble roots of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, apprenticing at a shop own by One Percenters (Bikers), led to Sin City, Las Vegas, and ended up here in the Aloha State, a great fit for a self-described “peace loving Rastafarian” who is all about giving great service and custom tattoos to his clientele.

Today’s story takes us deep into Sin City as we flashback a little bit on some of the experiences that Adam had while deep in the Strip.  The telling of this tale all began with this Writer saying: “Dude, my parents told me they were in a tattoo parlor in Vegas and the charge was $175 for a tattoo the size of a quarter.”

“I’d believe it.”  Adam replies.  ” In Vegas, the prices are jacked up because of all the drunken tourists who just want to get something done.  Did I ever tell you about Carnies?”

Carnies is a reference I have heard many times in Life and it is meant to paint the picture of someone who will do just about anything for a buck, even if it includes cutting a throat, or marking up prices.

“Well in Vegas, this shop I was at, we had five booths with five artists, sometimes more, even though it was illegal, and everyone was hungry.  This one artist there, Oz, once took five clients of mine who had asked for me.  At the end of the day, the Owner, paid us out according to who made the most.  If you made the most, you got out of there the fastest.  I never forgot that and it made me work hard.”

“That guy was smart, when I first started, there was our shop, and the shop across the street.  The Boss bought the space next to us and made it into a Tattoo Shop to catch the people who left us so they didn’t have to cross the street.  It worked good.”

Though Tattoo Adam made a ton of money, owned a House with a Pool, a car, his dream of Custom Tattooing was going unfulfilled.

“Be careful what you wish for.” He says with a laugh.  “I said I would give up the House that I owned, the pool, all of that so that I could do custom tattoo work because out there, I wasn’t getting to do a whole lot of it.”

Most tourists just want a bit of Flash and I have seen Adam knock out Tattoo Flash pieces as quick 15 minutes.  The true mastery of a custom tattoo artist, even an artist in general comes when they are working on something original, that involves them putting the energy of their own Being into the piece.

“If I didn’t leave Vegas, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

Where Adam sits today is as the President and Owner of his own Custom Tattoo Shop, the multiple award-winning Honolulu tattoo studio, 434 Tattoo.  Come check out Adam, Marko, Andy, and Karl today for your free consultation and to get your own bit of custom work.  You won’t regret it!

Summer of the Custom Tattoo

It’s almost the Summer!

In Hawaii, we pretty much are blessed with Summer weather nearly year-round.  The official transition to Summer is still a month away but with school out, graduation, and people on vacation, we are feeling the surge in business at our Waikiki tattoo parlor.

We are very grateful for the upswing in business and have been doing lots and lots of tattoos!  Maybe everyone wants to show off their new ink at the beach?

“There’s been a high request for big pieces,”  Hawaii Tattooist Marko Livingston reports while finishing up a forearm piece for a customer at 434 Tattoo, “and we are taking care of many requests right now.”

During times like this, we would like to ask if you could, would you please call/schedule appointments ahead of time as much as possible.  While we do take walk-ins we like to do this so that we can best accommodate all your custom tattoo needs.

With that, stay tuned for more news and updates and if you do hit the beach, remember to sunscreen your ink because as cool as tans are, faded tattoos are no bueno!

Aloha!
