Best Hawaii Tattoo Shops for Japanese Tattoo

Screen Shot 2015-11-20 at 3.35.59 PM

Japanese tattoos have long held allure to those of us living in Western civilization.

From association with the honorably, strong Samurai Warriors of the past to the powerful Yakuza figures of more recent years, Japanese culture signifies much to people from all walks of life.  Add in the depth and meanings behind the symbols of Japanese tattoos and you have a truly unique artform that transcends time.

With all that going for Japanese tattoo styles, it’s no small wonder why they are so popular!

Over the years, Tattoo Adam, our Owner & Lead Artist of our Waikiki tattoo shop, 434 Tattoo, has seen it all.  In his two plus decades of tattooing he has also evolved and cultivated his own, unique custom tattoo style that is heavily influenced by traditional Japanese artwork.

Adam was recently honored by the revered Japanese Tattoo Master Horiyoshi III when he was named Horiyume by the legend.  It was a symbol of the time, study, & hard work that Adam put into the craft. Around the same time, Adam began to take his practice of the traditional tattoo methods further by taking up tebori, Traditional Japanese Tattooing.

So if you’re looking for a truly original and authentic Japanese tattoo experience in Hawaii, stop by our tattoo studio in Waikiki!  Ask for Horiyume and prepare to get your suit on!
