The Pacific Ink & Art Expo, came, it saw, it conquered!  This year’s event once again brought together International Tattoo Artists, American Tattooists, and Hawaii’s own together for thousands of people over a weekend in Honolulu.

Getting a tattoo is meaningful because you wear it for life and it has depth for a great many.  If you want to explore further what the process is, consider collecting traditional piece.  It’ll be one of a kind and you’ll be linked to the ancestors of tattooing because of it.

Traditional Tebori in our Waikiki Tattoo Shop

Collaboration between Tattoo Adam & Takashi

Guest artist, Tebori tattooist Takashi, has arrived and is getting down to business at our Waikiki tattoo shop 434 Tattoo! Takashi has joined us in the lead-up to the 2015 Pacific Ink & Art Expo, also referred to as the Hawaii Tattoo Convention.

This is a wonderful opportunity to get an authentic Japanese tattoo experience outside of Japan.  In recent years, we have developed a tebori space in our Waikiki Tattoo Parlour. This quiet space will allow you to get the most out of your tebori experience so if you’re remotely curious, come on down and check us out.  We’re open 7 days a week, appointments preferred though walk-ins are always welcome, and we offer free consultations.

Japanese tattooing and Japanese tattoo culture are core to our shop.  Though experienced and talented in all forms of tattooing, we have a particular passion and connection to the vein of the artform that stems from Japan.

Early on in his life, our waikiki tattoo studio owner Tattoo Adam was exposed to tattoos & art.  When he saw the Japanese full-body tattoos, a passion developed.  Adam has since been to Japan countless times, experiencing tebori himself from the master Horiyoshi III.

We are located at 434 Ena Road & open from 10a – 10p.  Call us today to arrange a consultation or appointment.

Aloha!

Convention Season in Hawaii – The First Annual Hawaii Cannabis Expo

Screen shot 2015-07-20 at 3.24.40 PM

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!

Aloha and in the meanwhile, come on down and get your ink on with the talented team here!  Led by Tattoo Adam, a 20+ year veteran in the game, we’ll be featuring a special guest tattoo artist Takashi, who will be here for another convention coming up, the Pacific Ink & Art Expo!
