Man and (Tattoo) Machine: Marko Livingston aka “The Phenom”

His name is Marko Livingston.

He is a Hawaii Tattoo Artist at our Honolulu Tattoo Studio, 434 Tattoo.  He lives, breathes, sweats, and bleeds Art.  The man is the consummate professional, dedicated to his craft and in improving at everything.

When’s he not tattooing, he’s drawing…

When he’s not drawing, he’s painting…

If he’s not painting in one style, he’s painting in another (watercolor).

His dedication and unwavering desire to live and express, to improve is incredible.  I called him “The Phenom” in a previous write-up.  With that kind of dedication, would you argue it?

Pictured above are machines he built with his own hands.

In his right, the first tattoo machine he ever built, which he learned to do from the first person who taught him how to tattoo.

“I built this before even tattooing because I wanted to learn each step…”

This machine features Nicargua Cigar Wrap Coils he got from Hawaii Tattooist, Q, at House of Ink, another Oahu Tattoo shop in Kailua.  This machine also has some parts from Larry Hanks and Mike Nash and has a gun metal blue etched glass look.

The machine in his left hand has very special meaning for the man.

“I built this machine for my homie who got locked up.  He’s one of the most talented artists on the island and he is the reason I got into tattooing.  I wanted him to have something to do when he gets out.”

Marko’s friend will be out shortly and has already been working on tattoos for guards.  “I’ve seen some sick pieces he’s done there, it’s clean work.”  It must be good if someone as dedicated at growing as an Artist like Marko, is saying it.

You can find Marko at our Waikiki Tattoo Shop along with Shop Owner and World Famous Tattoo Artist, Tattoo Adam, Andy Burley, and up and comer Karl ‘Doubledown’ Juthans.  We are open 7 days a week from 10a-10p.

Stop by for your free consultation and to get a beautiful custom tattoo piece!

Horiyoshi III : From Heroes to Demons

Marko Livingston, a tattooist at 434 Tattoo, our Oahu tattoo Parlor, is the new Brand Representative for Heroes and Demons, a T-Shirt company featuring designs based on the artwork of world renowned Japanese Tattoo Artist, Horiyoshi III.  And did you know…

Tattoo Adam‘s backpiece tattoo has been worked on by the man himself at Horiyoshi‘s studio in Japan.  Horiyoshi is the second tattooist to be given the title and he received his own tattoo from Horiyoshi II.  His son is his apprentice and is currently next in line for the title coming up.

We’re looking forward to see what comes from this new venture and don’t worry, Marko will still be a part of the 434 Tattoo Ohana and will be tattooing at our Waikiki tattoo shop!

APEC Aftermath: Back to Tattoos in Honolulu

It’s still too early to tell whether or not the presence of APEC in Honolulu was a boon or a bust.  Many local businesses outside of Waikiki did not see much of a difference in their clientele base.  But now that APEC is in the rear view mirror, we can get back to business!!!

At 434 Tattoo,  our Waikiki Tattoo Studio, we specialize in the custom tattoo.  Our tattooists can do just about any tattoo out there (although there are some places an artist won’t go…) from thousands of Tattoo Flash designs to choose along the walls to putting together a custom piece based on an idea, picture or theme you have.

There are alot of Tattoo Parlors in Hawaii so why should you chose 434 Tattoo and not Tattoolicious, 808 Tattoo, or Koi Tattoo?  Shop owner Tattoo Adam is world famous, having been in the industry for two decades and has tattooed people from all walks of life including “Iron” Mike Tyson Marko Livingston also has tattooed celebrities including Grammy Award Winner T-Pain and is an accomplished graffiti artist in addition to being a tattooist.  The “youngest” member of our crew, Andy Burley, has earned the prestigious accomplishment of being the only person to ever complete an apprenticeship with Adam, and his book is growing by leaps and bounds.

“I was brought up in the old school way of tattooing.”  ~Tattoo Adam

All that aside, we love tattooing and we strive to share our love for what we do during the entire experience.  Our Waikiki tattoo shop is clean following the Hawaii Department of Health Protocol, we are all licensed by the State of Hawaii to tattoo, and use the most up to date techniques to sterilize our shop and equipment.

Our Honolulu Tattoo parlor is not only award winning but fun!  Come on down for your free consultation, let your Inner Child run around, and get some work with the pros at 434 Tattoo.  If you’re in the military, be sure to take sure of our Military Appreciation Special, going on during the month of November.  Ask our staff for more details.

In this video, we check out the second part of Tattoo Adam putting together a stencil design for a customer.

Tattoo Circles

While the Internet is a great way to find out about 434 Tattoo and all that goes on in our Waikiki Tattoo Parlor, we just want to thank all our customers who introduce us to their circle.

“Many of the people who get tattooed by me are be referral.”  Tattoo Adam shares while setting up for a client.  “Sometimes you meet one person and then end up tattooing everyone in their circle of friends.”  Megan, the customer, who was adding a small component to a tattoo on her forearm follows up with “That’s how I found out.”  So…

Tell your so’n’so’s so’n’so and don’t forget to holla at best friend’s aunty’s cousin’s nephew’s sister’s boyfriend about us.  We are 434 Tattoo and we custom tattoo 7 days a week, 10a to 10p, and like the post office, we deliver through rain, sleet, and snow.  Or maybe that’s UPS.  Who knows, there’s no snow in Hawaii so you’re all good in our hood!

And thank you for choosing Tattoo Adam, Andy Burley, and/or Marko Livingston as your next/first/all of the above Hawaii tattooist.
