This might be a longshot BUT...

I am leaving for Oahu on Friday for a week to celebrate my 35th birthday and plan on getting tattooed while there as my "souvenir". I have used Yelp to find a list of tattoo parlors in the area but I was wondering if anyone who has traveled to Oahu has been tattooed there and if you have a suggestion on a good place to go

Thanks in advance!

Aloha,

While I do not have ink, Josh at A Tiki Tattoo on Kuhio avenue wears a few tiki tats... I'm told he is pretty good at making them too...

I haven’t been there in about 10 years but there was a shop just off Hotel St. called China Sea that has a lot of history and once owned by Sailor Jerry. They had a good reputation of doing class A work and all the great vintage sailor hula dancers and "Mom" art on the walls was worth the trip alone.

Only YOU would ask that question, anyone else would be happy to bring back a sandal necklace

Ha! Well you know me...I already have enough Hawaiian souvenirs to have my own store--I want something that means more

Thanks for the suggestions! I appreciate it!!

I met Josh at A Tiki Tattoo and he does some nice work. His shop is near all the Waikiki hotels. However, I decided against getting ink because you are not supposed to go swimming with a fresh tattoo, it can get infected. Jus sayin'.

I have 70+ tattoos so I think I am good with how to care for them.

And I really won't be spending anytime in the water...lots to see and do in Hawaii so swimming is low priority on my list. Thanks for your recommendation and advice though!

I got a Tiki on the back of my calf from this shop, last year. Totally happy with it.

Aloha,

Walked by "A Tiki Tattoo" today and it's gone... Shocking... Maybe they moved... I'll find out and let you know...
