The Best in Hawaiian Tattoos

434 Tattoo, our Hawaii Custom Tattoos business located in Honolulu, Hawaii, has been recognized as the Best Honolulu Custom Tattooing Studio for four years and counting!


Recently Tattoo Adam, shop Owner and Hawaii Tattoo Artist, who is in his 22nd year of tattooing, was also recognized for his years of service and achievements in the Tattoo Industry by the same Consumer Business Review in Honolulu‘s Midweek.

Adam’s style can take care of any type of tattoo idea that you have and he specializes in Asian Tattoos, Polynesian Tattoos, and Hawaii Tattoo Designs.  Getting his start in Milwaukee, having spent time tattooing on the busy Las Vegas strip, and choosing to put roots here in the heavily beaten path of Waikiki, after 22 years Adam can do just about anything.

Check out Adam about to lay a tattoo on a customer after drawing the stencil directly on the canvas without a stencil:

Come on down to our tattoo studio in Waikiki  and come get worked on by Adam or one of our talented team of Hawaii Tattooists, all licensed by the State of Hawaii.  We look forward to inking ya!


When Did You First Tattoo?

It’s never too late to get a new custom tattoo!

At 434 Tattoo, our Waikiki Tattoo parlor, we have four talented Hawaii tattooists including Tattoo Adam (and his 2 decades of experience), Marko Livingston, Andy Burley, and Karl Doubledown Juthans who can assist you in getting the next or maybe even you first tattoo!

Speaking of first tattoos, this Editor decided to poll a few people and see when they got their first tattoo, including the men of 434 (calendar with Andy and his new Harley on the Cover coming soon).  We’ll do this chronologically for sh!ts and gigs…

Coming in first at the age of 13 y/o is Marko Livingston.  Don’t worry all you legal eagles, he ‘handpoked’ himself.

Zach, a loyal customer and frequenter of our fine establishment, also got his ink around this time, having gotten his first tattoo in a garage while in the 9th grade.  He hid it because his Dad told his family growing up no tattoos until they were 18.  As soon as he hit 18, he went and got one for all the world to see!

Tattoo Adam himself got tattooed at the 16, he would shortly join the industry as an apprentice at the age of 17, and go on to tattoo people from all walks of life, all around the world, including the infamous ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson.

This writer got his first tattoo at the age of 30, a ribcage, arm sleeve, chest piece, back piece later and well, it’s safe to say I love it!  Our friend Jacob, got his first tattoo a few months ago here at our Honolulu Tattoo studio, at the age of 54!  High Five to you buddy for continuing with a tattoo every week since it seems!!!

Note: Andy was not available for comment.  You’ll have to ask him yourself.
