Described as “meditative” and a bit more relaxing than being tattooed by the machine, Tebori involves being tattooed by hand used the instrument pictured above.

Check out this recent custom tattoo completed at our tattoo studio in Waikiki!

This work was done by our Waikiki tattoo shop‘s very own, Karl Juthans.

This is not Karl’s first jump into the technique as he has been working on it for some time.  You can read up and see more of Karl’s tattoos done in this technique online here.

Tattooing with needles and by tapping was the original method of inking, prior to the invention of machines, and have a special place in the history of tattooing.

Recently 434 Tattoo shop owner, Tattoo Adam, returned from Thailand, where he was inspired by their own version of tattooing without machines.

Stay tuned to hear more about what Adam has in store there!

Thailand Tattoo Adventures

Over the years, Tattoo Adam, Hawaii Tattoo Artist and proud Owner of Hawaii Custom Tattoos Studio, 434 Tattoo, has traveled to tattoo and for tattoos around the world.

Starting his tattoo apprenticeship in his home town of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Adam would venture to Las Vegas, home to many tattoo shops and the backdrop for television’s Bad Ink tattoo TV show.  In Las Vegas, Adam tattooed people from around the world including a few famous folks like former Boxing Legend Mike Tyson.

From there Adam made his way here to Hawaii, where he helped build the Waikiki Tattoo studio Tattoolicious, worked privately in Sugar Box, and has since been the proprietor of 434 Tattoo.

Located in the Heart of the Waikiki and Ala Moana areas, 434 Tattoo has seen its share of clientele and a number of talented tattoo artists have spent time here.  In addition to running a small business, Adam is a hard-working family man, with a young son, Andrew.  With so much going on, what does he like to do to unwind?

While he loves custom tattooing, Adam also loves to travel.  He has tattooed people all around the world at the locations mentioned above and at conventions in the Philippines, Thailand, and here in Hawaii.

In a few days, Adam returns to Thailand, a place that is very near and dear to him.  Adam has visited the famed Tiger Temple in addition to receiving ink and blessings from Thai monks themselves!

Stay tuned for more updates from Adam’s adventures in tattoos and traveling.  In the meanwhile, read about past experiences and catch some videos in these posts:

Tattoo it Up!

Greetings Earthlings from your favorite Honolulu Tattoo shop, the award-winning 434 Tattoo!  The Holidays are fast approaching/upon us and it is time for Thanksgiving this week.

In light of this, here’s a cool tattoo story about someone’s first tattoo.  The first time anyone gets tattooed is a bit sacred in many ways. The first tattoo represents many different things, has even more meaning in various ways, and is always a truly unforgettable experience.

This woman, aged 83, decided to get the expression, “Carpe Diem.”  The Carpe Diem tattoo means “Seize the day” and the phrase was popularized in the Hollwood movie, Dead Poets Society, aptly named for the words are the last line of a poem by you guessed it, a dead poet!

So Seize the Day because you never know what is going to come or go, start or end, and have a great week of happenings!  And if seizing the day involves getting your first tattoo or a tattoo in Hawaii, please feel free to holla at our crew!  Our team of talented Hawaii Tattoo artists, led by Tattoo Adam and his 20 plus years of tattooing, is more than happy to help you with your very own custom tattoo.

Take care and ahui hou (see ya in Hawaiian)!
