Dine and Dash…

Happy New Year from your friendly neighborhood Hawaii Custom Tattoo Studio!!!  

Itʻs time to get the new year kicked off right and part of that includes good wishes and also getting real and rid of the stuff we donʻt need.  With that, 434 Tattoo, our award wining Honolulu Tattoo Studio, had to call the cops near the end of the year about a customer…

Last year we ran a very successful Living Social Tattoo Promotion and it was for an hour of custom tattoo work.  We are up front with all of our clients about the estimate and our shop hourly is posted online and told to each customer when going over the details of the tattoo. If there is anything unclear at any time please feel free to ask us.

In the past, we also ran a Groupon promotion that worked out really well too.  We want to keep offering these great Hawaii Tattoo Deals to our clients, friends, and family!  Unfortunately, we had to call the police because someone ran out without paying and without indicating any displeasure until sharing their side that they were unhappy with what they thought the promotion was in one of the online forums that was brought to our attention.  We sign contracts to make these things happen and are obligated to keep it within the details of what the coupon advertises.

We Love what we do!

We Love to Tattoo you and we hope that we can continue to offer amazing deals while also plying our trade for what it is worth.  Though there are a number of Hawaii Tattoo Studios out there, we have won the title of Honoluluʻs Best Tattoo Studio four years in a row (and counting) as advertised in the Midweek.  Our team is also led by Tattoo Adam and his 22 years of service in the tattoo industry.

We offer free consultations to all of our clients and you are encouraged to schedule an appointment and time to consult and also to get your ink.  We do not charge you for artwork, only for time spent on the tattoo.  If there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to share them with the our team and if anything with Adam, who owns the shop.  We are more than willing to work with you!

Now that thatʻs out of the way… Stay tuned because we have a great Yelp Deal going on and will soon have another Living Social Coupon available so that you can continue to get great custom tattoo work at a phenomenal price.  We are hoping that you will be so happy you keep coming back like many of our customers who start with one piece and end up with bigger designs as their interest continues!

Happy Holidays! Get Your Ink This Season!

Well the world didn’t end…

Once again we here at 434 Tattoo our Hawaii Custom Tattoos studio want to wish you a very Happy Holiday season!  Be sure to catch our great Honolulu Tattoo Deals like the one on Yelp!  We also have a number of gift certificates available that will make great gifts for your family, friends, or even yourself!

The Holidays tend to bring out the best and the worst in people.  And in some cases, there are people who end up stuck in the worst their whole lives.  It’s interesting in many ways because if you scrape beneath the surface, you can find that their misery stems into all aspects of their lives.  Hopefully we can remember to spread the cheer each and every day.

In addition to spreading cheer, you might want to consider a custom tattoo that promotes your own well-being because then you will have some more cheer.

At our Waikiki Tattoo Shop, we strive to give our customers the best experience and to make them happy.  Though there may be a critic here and there, the overwhelming majority of our clientele are stoked and keep coming back.

Hawaii Tattoo Artist and Waikiki Tattoo Shop Owner Tattoo Adam has been in the game for over two decades and takes the time to give free consultations and work with his customer to ensure a quality experience.  Be sure to ask for Adam if you have any questions or concerns because he will be sure to address any of your issues.

So kick back, relax, let go, and come on down and get your ink this Holiday Season!

A Loyal Customer: Hey Joe

From the archives of Tattoo Adam, a custom tattoo artist with over 20 years of experience in the industry and owner of the award winning Honolulu tattoo studio, 434 Tattoo.

“In 2002, a customer walked in to the shop (Aloha Tattoo ), got a tattoo. and kept coming back for more ink.

The customer by the name of Joe, spent 4 years in Hawaii, serving in the Army, getting ink and staying loyal to his artist.

Through out that time after so many hours under the needle Joe and Tattoo Adam established a friendship, which is a common thing sometimes.

Joe followed Tattoo Adam as he moved into a small custom tattoo studio on Kalakaua Ave, where he finished his back piece .

After his four years, Joe continued on with his duties elsewhere, committed to the Army.

Only 2 short years later Joe returned to Hawaii to his surprise to find Tattoo Adam moving closer into Waikiki, having opened his current studio 434 Tattoo, and as a welcome home surprise Joe found his Tattoo on his back running in a widely distributed magazine advertisement for the last 3 years he served here in Hawaii for the Army.

In those last 3 years, Joe lived around the corner from the studio and was always on and off the Island, it was confusing wondering were your friend keeps going, but when he was around our friendships really rooted well into this small little studio.

Joe this blog is for you brother, although you have left we will be waiting like all those other times for you to come back and be apart of your tattooed family ..

The photo is of Joe treating Tattoo Adam to Famous Hanks Haute Dogs, both was there first time to eat there and a real Awseome experience to remember each others friendship.

Every thing happens for a reason, and I have a good feeling the Army will see it and give a good soldier a good life!

See you soon bro! Do not for get about us!!”

Thanks Tattoo Adam for your work, your words, and sharing such a cool story!  For all of you interested in getting your ink, come on down for our free consultations and to the Waikiki Tattoo Studio with the best tattoo deals in Hawaii!

Caffeine, Tattoos, and Pain

T-Pain got the real pain at 434 Tattoo, our Waikiki Tattoo Shop.  Mike Tyson got the real pain from shop owner, Tattoo Adam.  Thousands of others get the real pain each year from our talented team of Hawaii Tattoo Artists.  Point being, tattoos are painful…

Getting your first tattoo in Hawaii, or anywhere, for that matter can be a little intense.  No matter if it’s your first tattoo or an additional one, you don’t know what to expect or how your body is going to respond to the experience.  Here are a couple tips we’ve learned over the years so that the process flows:

Doubledown: “Don’t drink caffeine. In World War II, caffeine was given to prisoners so that the pain from torture would be felt more.”

Andy Burley: “Try to do something relaxing beforehand.  You’re going to want to feel relaxed, you know, get your 6-8 hours of sleep.  You should also eat a big meal and take about 45 minutes before getting your tattoo.  And relax.”

And if you’re wondering what to do after, we can go to Tattoo Adam for the (comic relief) wisdom on tattoo aftercare:  “Go to a dirty massage parlor with lots of germs, they’ll wash it down for you and put on the ointment…”

All jokes aside, there are a lot of different tips and techniques out there to make your tattoo experience, memorable, safe, and to ease the real pain! So come on down, our award-winning Honolulu Tattoo Studio, offers free consultations and touch-ups for life, and we always offer the best in Hawaii tattoo discounts and deals around!

Cool Things to Give Your Tattooist

Many people are so happy with their tattoos that they’ll wear for life, that they often reach out with a token of appreciation to us.  Here’s a list of some cool things you can give your Tattooist to share the love:

The Goose.  Hawaii Tattooist, Marko Livingston, recently received a bottle of Grey Goose, Patron, and some classical music from another satisfied customer!

Artwork.  There is a reason the word artist is a part of the role of Tattoo Artist… your tattooist is an artist!  They spend years of time, dedication, and practice to perfect their craft.  Marko and Tattoo Adam were featured in an art show last year and spend time drawing, painting, and doing other art on their own.  So if you see a book, a painting, something that you want to share, please do.

Baked goods.  Haute Dogs.  Other food items.  We’re human and our shop has to eat.  We’ll never turn down a good meal or two.  Or a t-shirt. We have to wear clothes too!

Hmm, what else, how about anything train related.  At our shop, we also have a custom train detailing business so we’re definitely pro train…

As an award-winning Hawaii custom tattoo parlor, the team at our Waikiki Tattoo Shop works hard to make sure that our customers enter and leave happy.  None of this gift giving is required, but a little love goes a long way in the world.  We put alot of love and energy into our work and we appreciate you and the different ways you say thanks!

So thanks to you too, we’ll see you soon at 434 Tattoo!
