Best Places to Get a Tattoo in Hawaii?

A list of the best Hawaii tattoo parlors including Suite Dreamz Tattoo Studio, Skin Deep Tattoo, and Tattoolicious, as recommended by past visitors.

I’ve haven’t been inked in Hawaii so I like to recommend that visitors take a look at Yelp as a starting point for research. Yelp is Hawaii’s go-to for peer-rated everything including tattoo parlors. You can check ratings, read reviews, and see photos of the artist’s work. Visit (or the Yelp app) and search “tattoos” in the applicable location e.g. Honolulu.

TIP: Book your appointment in advance and make sure it’s at the end of your holiday so you don’t miss out on the sunshine or swimming! There is also an annual Pacific Ink & Art Expo in Honolulu every August where visitors can meet master tattooists and see their work.
