At our Oahu Tattoo shop, 434 Tattoo, all of our Hawaii tattooists are certified and undergo training in order to tattoo you. We do this because we strive to provide the best service and to ensure that you get the best product out there!
In life, many people try to cut corners for a variety of reasons and tattooing is no exception. While you might save some money or help a buddy practice, it’s better to be safe than sorry. In a recent article, Reuters reported that Amateur tattoos may carry a higher risk of Hepatitis C infection. Another common side effect of amateur tattooing, is improper after-care which leads to an infection, and in some cases a hospital visit.
So while we are in the tattoo industry and don’t refute our bad-assness, we also want to make sure people are educated about this art that we love and take the best care of themselves.
This Tattoo Public Service Announcement has been brought to you by Friends of Tattoo Adam 2012! Check out our award-winning Honolulu Custom Tattooing shop three years running at 434 Ena Rd. We’re open everyday from 10a-10p!
Now’s a great time to get in there for your brand new custom tattoo! Our talented teams of tattooists are happy to help you stimulate the economy and will give you the best tattoo service out there.
Service is important in the world in general and customer service essential in business. Having modified our bodies and in turn altered our experience in the world, we enjoy treating people with respect because we know what it’s like to walk into an establishment and feel like a book being judged by its cover. When you have a visible tattoo, many people interact with you differently. It’s probably a residual from previous eras, pirates, the military, and who knows. That’s not to say things aren’t changing…
In places like LA, there are over 150 tattoo parlors within a ten mile radius. That’s like 15 LA Tattoo shops per mile! Shows like Inked and featuring celebrity tattoo artists like Kat Von D have really helped to expose the world to tattoo culture and embrace the love of ink.
So what do you say? Sound like it’s time to get that custom tattoo you’ve been waiting for? Yeah, we thought so too!
