Where to get a tattoo?

Aloha!

Where in Honolulu is the best place to get a tattoo? I did want to go to Hart and Huntington, but it seems that they have shut shop.

Try to get it done at the end of your visit,, not good to swim while it's healing.

LOL! Thanks, Scott. Yes, I'm the one who draws the ire of tattoo fans for reminding our posters of the higher risk of Hepatitis C. Nasty, nasty stuff. Tattoed persons have a 5X higher risk of Hep C than non-tattoed. Saw the newer stats just last month.

Hawaii is a state that actually has licensing for tattoo businesses, though. That's a great improvement over my home state, Idaho. I got inked on Kaua'i, and am pleased to report that I've been Hep-C-free. ;-)

BLBL, I've really enjoyed your many super-helpful contributions to this forum, which I've been frequenting quite a bit since booking my August trip, but your scare-mongering is wholly inappropriate and out-of-place in this thread. If you do indeed know of some great tattoo places on Oahu, please share (I'm thinking of getting an eighth), but otherwise spare us from any more of your condescending and naive posts in this worthwhile topic.

It's simple public health. (Scott threw out the bait, and I took it.)

Geeze, I was having a bit of fun and someone gets all huffy!

Here is what Yelp says on where.

And as long as we are being all serious, the National Health Institute seems to be in Betty Lou's camp.
