Meet Joe.

Joe stopped by our Waikiki tattoo shop, 434 Tattoo, to get a Polynesian tattoo while visiting Hawaii.  Joe was taking some time off from work to enjoy the sun, sand, & sea here in the beautiful 808 State!

Joe’s work?

IMG_0351

Joe works in politics in New Hampshire!  As a member of the House of Representatives, Joe listened to the input of his community and was a part of making recent history.  That history?

The New Hampshire House of Representatives was the first legislative body in America to vote for the decriminalization of small amounts of marijuana.

Recently in Hawaii, laws towards marijuana have been evolving as well.  With more progressive thought and movements making waves across America, it’s only a matter of time before this plant, which is medicine for a great number of people, to be legalized here as well.  This is an issue that is sure to be continued but with marriage equality finally making its way to legality in America, perhaps this will be next.

Stay tuned!

In the meantime, should you be looking for your next Hawaiian tattoo, look no further!

San Diego Police Department Bans Visible Ink

In the past few months, HPD’s chief banned visible tattoos on police officers in the City and County of Honolulu. Just the other week, the US Army announced it will be changing tattoo policies to be more tolerant of servicemen and servicewomen with tattoos.

The San Diego Police Department is taking a stance more similar to that of HPD in the coming week…

Check the story out at the link.

Recently, the BBC published an article talking about anti-tattoo discrimination laws in the UK because a growing number of people there, who are qualified for work, are finding themselves without work or call-backs because of visible tattoos. The percentage of people who are tattooed in the work-force is even higher in the US.

What this all means is that people, who can do great work, are being blacklisted because of their personal preference and choice to express themselves with tattoos.

As one of Hawaii’s best tattoo shops, we obviously support getting custom tattoos here at 434 Tattoo, our tattoo studio in Waikiki.

We are open 7 days a week, from 10a to 10p plying the trade we love and have served a great many of HPD’s finest, as well as military and law enforcement personnel from around the world.

Our Hawaii tattoo shop is going to continue to give great service to anyone and hopefully, some day, the choice to wear visible artwork on one’s skin will be accepted by organization’s around the world.

When considering that tattoos have had cultural significance since before businesses were businesses, it certainly is confusing why people are so opposed and afraid of tattooed individuals.

If one of the largest revenue generating forces in the world, the NFL, is okay with it, then maybe there’s hope and tattoos will have a shot at wide-stream acceptance.
