Absolutely amazing experience. I highly recommend this place. Everyone is extremely nice. The owner and Lei Lani are awesome. I love it here, and got an incredible tapping tattoo.
Quality work! I can't say enough about the piece I got from Aisea, masterfully blended an old piece I had with the new; using both machine and tapping. This place does look a bit out of sorts from the outside. I did have the advantage of observing quite a few interactions in my very long appointment. The staff was very polite and respectful to everyone that came through the door. Negative vibes were kept to a low. I was impressed to see the number of return customers coming in, who had just come back to the island. I was even more impressed how well he remembered their clients even some from as far as three years back. As I said before, not enough positive things can be said about the shop. I would highly recommend it to anybody looking to get a good piece done.
I had the honour of receiving a traditional tattoo by the legend Aisea. It was a once in a lifetime experience, I am forever grateful and thankful. The tattoo is absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend Soul Signature Tattoo, all artists, staff were amazing and professional. Aloha!

Wanted my first tattoo while on vacation last month so headed to Sacred Art. I was a walk in and was helped immediately by Tomo who helped me view any options that resembled what I described. Pulled out a beautiful draw up he had done and I was sold. Great service. Tomo was great and the tattoo is beautiful. Everybody at home loves it and I get compliments daily.
If we could, we'd give 2 stars for the appointment/organization and 5 stars for the tattoo artists. We made an appointment 3 days before with Mark for 6pm. On the day we arrived five minutes early, but Mark wasn't there?! In addition another tattoo artist had called in sick, leaving poor Tomo (who actually had his day off) and a colleague of his from SFA (who was helping out and didn't actually work there) alone with all the work. When we got there, they were obviously behind schedule and asked us to wait. After 45 minutes we were just about to leave - slightly annoyed as this was our treat on our last night in Honolulu - when the lady from SFA (sorry we forgot you name) was ready to start on my husbands tattoo. Right after that Tomo was ready for mine as well. So much for the appointment/organization... Now to do good part: Tomo and the lady from SFA did a brilliant job on drawing our tattoos just the way we wanted them and really took there time. The results are even better and we couldn't have asked gor two other tattoo artist!!! Thanks for your great work, but please get the organization sorted ;-)
Got my first tattoo at Sacred Tattoo while on vacation in Waikiki! So happy with Chris and the work he did! Very professional and clean environment. Chris worked with me on every detail to insure I got what I wanted. Would definitely recommend this place!

Tattoolicious went above and beyond our expectations. They were very prompt in communicating with us and making sure we were taken care of. When we were at the shop we were very impressed with how clean and new it was and how promptly we were spoken to and welcomed in. Andy, our artist was very friendly and flexible with us and made our tattoo designs better than what we could have expected. He quoted us for an hour for our visit, and even though it took longer than an hour, he still honored that price. We are very pleased with this shop and will definitely come back again.
I'm not one to usually write a review but this experience was one to remember. From the moment my wife and I walked thru the door we were greeted by a warm smile and a big aloha from Tina. Thank you Tina for making me comfortable from the start. Moving forward Tina matched me up with the perfect artist Josh. This guy is legitimate!!! I thought I knew exactly what I wanted in my first tattoo. But after talking with Josh I was quickly convinced by his 17 years of experience that I could have a much better looking tattoo if I was willing to think outside the box. Well let me tell you this. Josh took the basics of what I wanted and turned it into a beautiful, bad ass tattoo that has literally blown not only mine and my wife's mind, but the minds of all my friends back home. Josh you are sweetheart and an amazing artist!!!! Thank you for making my dream of getting a memorable tattoo a reality. Mahalo my friend! Much love and appreciation to you and Tina for making this experience one I will always remember.
I wanted my first tattoo to be done in Oahu so I did a lot of research and decided on Tattoolicious as I had read so many good things about them on the Internet. I was not disappointed.I emailed Pixie (who is just fantastic!) with some dates of when we would be in Oahu and some photos so by the time I got there my artist, Amy, knew exactly what I wanted. Amy is a true tattoo master who created the most beautiful back piece of orchids for me that I got stopped several times the next day by people complementing my tattoo and inquiring where I had it done. The entire staff at Tattoolicious were fun, professional, and incredibly talented and I am so pleased that I chose them. My special thanks to Amy-you made my first experience so great and I have a beautiful piece of art that will last a lifetime!
