Get Some Ink

OahuWaikiki Finds

Polynesians have been decorating their bodies with tattoos for hundreds of years. Traditionally, tattoos were considered an art form that guarded a person’s spiritual well-being.

In Hawai‘i, tattoos are a common sight. From tribal patterns to hibiscus flowers, the tropical islands inspire ink found on tourists and locals alike. TATTOOLICIOUS , a tattoo hot spot in Waikīkī located on the corner of Ala Wai Boulevard and McCully Street, is a good place to get a souvenir that lasts a lifetime.

If a lifelong commitment to ink isn’t your thing, there is still a way to get a temporary tattoo to mark your trip. HENNA , popularized in recent years by the likes of Katy Perry and Vanessa Hudgens, lasts up to three weeks and is kid-friendly. You’ll fi nd numerous henna artists and regular tattoo parlors around Waikīkī.
