Christmas Ideas – Give the Gift of Tattoo

Tree.jpg

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Christmas is less than 2 weeks away and rather than fight massive mall crowds at Ala Moana Shopping Center, why not consider taking a stroll a short bit away to our Waikiki tattoo studio.  You can get a tattoo gift certificate for a loved one or even gift yourself with a brand new tattoo!

The talented team here at one of Hawaii’s best tattoo studios has a diverse skillset and years of experience.  Led by Tattoo Adam (Horiyume), we pride ourselves in taking care of our clients with great serviced & artwork!

What fun is getting a cool piece of ink if the experience of it sucks, right?

Hailing from Milwaukee, Adam cut his bones in an old school apprenticeship and has accumulated 23 years in the tattoo industry, with years before that practicing a variety of art styles.

We are also often host to a number of talented international tattoo artists and on site we have Korean Tattooist Macho & Japanese Tebori tattoo artist Takashi with us.  A once in a lifetime tattoo can be acquired at this time should you take advantage and book a session with a guest artist when they are in town.  Who knows where you might find them next!

We are open 7 days a week, from 10a – 10p.  Come on down and get your ink on with the homies here at 434 Tattoo!

Best Waikiki Tattoo Shops

Screen shot 2015-07-29 at 11.53.53 AM

The term best is relative to experience and in this day and age weighed against reviews, word of mouth, online or otherwise.  We like to think we are among the best Waikiki Tattoo Shops because we have all of the above going for us.

Awards? We got em! Our waikiki tattoo studio has received the award from the consumer business review for best custom tattooing studio in Honolulu for 5 years running!

Loyal clients? We have and are so grateful for all of them/you too!  Many of the clients have been with our Founder, Tattoo Adam (Horiyume), since he first came to Honolulu years ago.  The internet might not be quick to recall the days of Sugar Box, the walls going up at Tattoolicious, and history might have faded some of the great memories but Adam’s been tattooing for over two decades and has put in the time to master the craft.  The returning long-time customers speak to that!

Great reviews? We have quite a few of those too.  While we admit there have also been some that didn’t cut our high standards, we take your feedback to heart to improve the customer experience by removing artists who contributed to the negativity and constantly finding ways to make our shop better.

We urge you to read through all that’s out there and figure out what you want to do.  You work hard for you money and so do we.  We want you to be happy so come down and schedule a free consultation.  That’s a great time for us to talk stories about your concept, what you’re looking for, and for you to see if you have a rapport with our team.

If you like it, which so many over the years, well let’s get to inking ya!

Aloha!

Hawaii Custom Tattoos: A Fusion

photo-1

“Brah, it looks like an American and Japanese Tattoo!”  ~ Zach

Greetings from our Waikiki Tattoo studio, 434 Tattoo!  Owned and led by Custom Tattoo Artist, Tattoo Adam, we specialize in any and all things having to do with Hawaii Custom Tattoos!

The picture above is great example of the type of custom tattooing that we do.  This customer had the words tattooed originally and then Tattoo Adam did the Angel chest piece.  He tied in the Japanese inspired cloud tattoo background to a pre-existing tattooed arm sleeve that he also worked on.  This customer also has some Hawaiian roots so maybe we will see some Polynesian tattooing  as the background for the other side.

Come on down and meet the team!  We have a whole crew of talented Hawaii Tattooists and have recently welcomed artists, Lions and Kazan aboard, now joining Andy Burley who has been here since his apprenticeship with Tattoo Adam. We can do just about anything like the examples seen above and including but not limited to Hawaiian Tattoos, New Skool Tattoos, Old Skool Tattoos, Asian Tattooing, and more.

Stay tuned for more news, views, and lots about tattoos here!

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.

Check out this video of Adam consulting with a customer in our Hawaii Tattoo Studio:

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

Itʻs Halloween in Hawaii!!!  Our Ohana at this tattoo shop in Waikiki is open and here for all those ghouls adventurous enough to put their costume on for Life!

To stick with the theme, we just want to share some Halloween themed tattoos

Whatʻs Halloween without a Jackʻ0ʻLantern tattoo

or two?

That last one even has the popular grim reaper tattoo design folded in the mix!  The San Francisco Giants won the World Series this year, and to celebrate their favorite team and Halloween, this person got a Panda Sugar Skull:

Nothing is scarier in Horror Movies than demonic children, well clowns are pretty scary, but this child tattoo is creepy:

This tattoo is not only Halloween themed with a Witch, it is rocking not just any witch, but is a Wicked Witch Tattoo:

It just screams:  “Iʻll get you my pretties!”  doesnʻt it?  And last but not least, what is Halloween in this day and age without a Zombie tattoo?

Make sure you brush your teeth otherwise you could end up with a mouth full of teeth that looked like that.  Be safe, get wild, and have yourself a good ole bash this Halloween.  Good thing the Full Moon past, otherwise there might be some real Werewolves out, eh?

Honorable mention Halloween Tattoo goes to this stick on piece:

We are your friendly neighborhood Hawaii custom tattoo studio434 Tattoo is open seven days a week from 10a – 10p and we specialize in Polynesian tattoos, tattoo cover-ups, and more!

Tattoo Tuesday Meets WTF Wednesday!!! Face Tattoos

Note: Tattoo Tuesday is bleeding into WTF Wednesday as this was began but unable to be finished yesterday… Enjoy!

This picture of the Dude above was too epic to pass up! It is of a gentlemen rocking a face tattoo well into this elder statesmen years!  Facial tattoos are nothing new, though not so widespread or accepted in the West, but a popular form of Polynesian tattoos particularly amongst the Maori people in New Zealand.

The tattoo pictured above is a design that was done last year by Hawaii Custom Tattoo Artist, Tattoo Adam, the owner of our Waikiki Tattoo Studio, 434 Tattoo. You can read more about this style of tattoo here.

And finally for your WTF Wednesday video, we present our Editor’s attempt at an inspirational video.  Find the comedy in it folks and note that a different book is coming out… He’s going to give us copies at our tattoo shop in Honolulu so you’ll be able to scoop that up some day too and have something to read while getting your next custom tattoo.
