+ 3 of my family members visiting from Vancouver got tattoos here in the span of 2 days. It's the 15-year-old nephew's first tattoo. The next day his mom decided to get one as well. It became a family bonding experience and a ritual signifying the boy becoming a man.
+ Eugene did all 3. He is very professional. He put you to ease and explained the process clearly for the boy. Overall a very good vibe about him. He did a great job with all 3 tattoos. The uncle said he is coming back in a few weeks to have another tattoo done by Eugene.
+ We brought our own designs on print-outs and Eugene drew it on the skin first to make sure you like it before starting the work. They also have several books with unique artwork for you to choose from.
+ The place is very clean and spacious and well-lit. Not seedy like some of the other tattoo parlors.
+ When the nephew was getting his tattoo, there was another 17-year girl, accompanied by her mom and aunt, getting her first tattoo. Of course we were all recording the event with cameras. It was almost sacred.
+ All tattoo artists here are very laid-back and friendly. All good artists with great energy, which I heard is very important for someone who's going to put something permanent on your skin.
+ Good location, across the street from 24 hours fitness on Kapiolani.
- Limited parking. So either street parking or use the pay lot. Street parking can be hard to find in the evening.
- Cash only. Minimum $100 per tattoo. The more elaborate ones will be more expensive.
