The First Annual Hawaii Cannabis Expo was held in Honolulu, Hawaii, this past weekend!
Our Waikiki tattoo shop recently had the pleasure of inking one of the State Representatives from New Hampshire, who have been at the forefront of policy making related to Marijuana, in particular in decriminalizing this herbal medicine that has been used by humanity through its history.
Hawaii currently has 13,000 active, registered medical marijuana patients. With the evolving stance about medical marijuana and dispensaries here in Hawaii, dispensaries are estimated to bring in an additional $5 million in revenue to the State of Hawaii.
Many feel that it’s only a matter of time before this is fully legalized and following in the footsteps of Colorado and Washington, particularly with both States reporting huge windfalls because of the initiative.
Stay tuned for more info on this issue as we watch how it all unfolds!

The 2015 Hawaii Tattoo Convention is right around the corner!
Tebori tattoo artist Takashi will be going to the Pacific Ink & Art Expo on August 7, 8, & 9, during his time in Hawaii but you can get your work done or started by him from July 30 at our Waikiki tattoo studio! Check out what his bio for the Expo has to say about his work:
“Although outlines are still done by machine, this method uses a long bamboo stick, called a nomi, with steel needles arranged in rows, singly or stacked and tied at the end. The tip of the nomi is dipped in ink and pressed rapidly into the skin. This creates some of the finest shading and subtle gradations, giving the tattoos a distinct look from typical machine work.”
434 Tattoo will be Takashi’s home in the lead-up to the event and we’re taking appointments for him now! Contact us today to learn more and to book your slot!
