I'd been wanting a cover up for a while for a bad tattoo done at a tattoo party when I was 21. My husband and I were celebrating our 10-year annniversary in Oahu and decided that a tattoo would be the perfect way to commemorate our trip.
I looked up reviews online and found several top-rated shops. We visited one, but didn't get any warm fuzzies. Hit Tattoolicious next. The receptionist wasn't so impressive. She seemed preoccupied with the computer and wasn't real friendly but was polite enough. I felt we had to dig information out of her. I decided I was here for a tattoo, and that I'd base my decision on the artists and the online reviews, not the woman at the counter. We returned later that day, met Andy King, and made an appointment for the next day. When we showed up, he'd drawn a great picture of a hibiscus. From the get go, he was very nice, precise, gentle hand. Everything you'd want. I was thrilled by how little it hurt and even more thrilled with the result of the tattoo. I'd had 2 other small tattoos by different artists back home, and both tattoos had developed deep scabs and ended up looking like crap. I told Andy about this, and he obviously took care because his tattoo healed beautifully! Hardly any peeling, no scabbing whatsoever, bright beautiful colors, and no trace of the old tattoo. Hubby even saw several women point out my tattoo to their guy while out shopping saying they liked it. Everything about the whole experience (receptionist aside) was fabulous! I'd recommend Andy (I believe he's one of the newer artists there) to anyone wanting a tattoo, especially someone who's never had one and is afraid of the pain. He did great! Will plan on bringing relatives there when we return next year! Thank you, Andy!

First ever tattoo. The staff answered all my questions without making me feel stupid. Alex was the artist who worked on me. Great guy! Funny, patient, and his detailed work is amazing! Explained the procedure throughout. I'm thoroughly pleased with the end result and am proud to show off my ink! If you're in Oahu and find yourself thinking about getting a tattoo, especially for the first time, this place is the one to check out!

Visited every tattoo shop in Honolulu. The Tattoolicious staff made me the most comfortable. Terrific artists. I've had 7 tattoos done here and 4 ear piercings. I wouldn't go anywhere else in Hawaii for ink or piercing. A very roomy waiting area and large selection of jewelry.

Sean and the Tattoolicious family of artist are sweet they are very welcoming no attitudes and they genuinely enjoy what they do and it shows. Original designs and great collaboration with the artist is key in a great Tattoo and in the Three day's of Ink I got, I saw amazing work and a great atmosphere from all the artist and staff. Mucho Mahalo's for the ridiculous work Sean I look forward to my next visit!
I had an amazing experience. I made it to my appointment a minute late but I told them that traffic was so bad. It really was and we had never been to the place before. Mia was able to take my appointment because the girl that was going to do mine was on personal leave. She made it so comfortable. Gave me some pointers so that it would look its best. She drew it up right away and had it done. Its my first tattoo ever and she made it fun. Even my husband who hates needles was able to stand with me the entire time and watch her do the tattoo. Now he wants one. Definitely going back to Tattoolicious to get my next tattoo. Before we move out of the island I have to go back. Great service plus the place looks awesome!
I love the folks here at Tattoolicious, they've accommodated my wishes for body art on each visit. I love the fact that the tattoo artists here have the ability to draw designs directly onto my body not using stencils, therefore my tattoo's are truly unique and no one has one like any of mine. To me that means a lot.
Turning my kids into fans as well. While Kristof was working on me, the owner was able to squeeze my girl in for a piercing.
No trip to Oahu is complete without a visit to Tattooalicious. If you are into body art, this is the place to visit. The trip to the shop to put down a deposit is kind of an inconvenience but knowing that I'm coming back to the Island on a relatively regular basis, I just leave a deposit on the books and phone for an appointment.
Check it out.

t is now 1:55 on the day of my appointment. I would have left in one hour to go to my consult. I just got a phone call canceling because of overbooking. I made this appointment over a week ago. My schedule is very tight because I have a child who is special needs. I was disrespected, insulted and told I was being unreasonable.
Of course I am upset and being told ""that's the nature of this business"" does not cut it for me. I am expected to be on time for my appointment, why isn't the same expected of Tattoolicious? I was also told ""well, it's just a consult."" A consult was what was recommended to me by their staff. Couldn't they have called any sooner than two hours before my appointment? I see that they treat their customers with money in hand better than any future clients.
I was prepared to come in, talk about my tattoo and make any deposit necessary. I have friends who were planning on getting tattoos from you guys whom I will discourage from seeing Tattoolicious.
To say I am disappointed is an understatement. Since I don't plan on hearing any kind of apology from them given the attitude of the person I talked to, I will not be giving them a second chance.
This could have been handled far better than it was on the part of their staff and to treat me in such a manner is not only rude, it's unacceptable. Insults are not necessary nor is disrespect. I did not insult or degrade or accuse anyone of being ""unreasonable."" I did not yell. I was polite while on the phone with this representative of Tattoolicious.
I will not be giving any of my money to such a business nor will I be recommending Tattoolicious to anyone in the future.
Just warning any future clients, your ""appointment"" may be mysteriously canceled at the last minute due to ""overbooking"". Tourists on a tight time budget should be especially aware.

My husband and I just returned from Hawaii on Wednesday. While we were there, I wanted to commemorate our trip as well as celebrate the end of my breast cancer treatment, so I decided to get a tattoo. Before we left for Hawaii, I googled for tattoo shops in Honolulu and found Tattoolicious. The reviews were fantastic and their website has portfolios for each of the artists there. I decided that I wanted Heather to do my tattoo. I met with her to discuss my design and to just meet her. Heather was fantastic. Not only did she do an absolutely beautiful job on my tattoo, she even came in 2 hours before her shift started to fit me in. This shop is fantastic! Everyone I met there was super nice. Heather rocks! She's a great artist and talked to me the whole time, to keep my mind off things. Mahalo!

2008 was a lousy year. My husband of 20 years passed away suddenly, I lost my job for the first time in my 22 year career in real estate, and I was scammed out of every penny I had and didn't have. It was a tough year, but I survived and now my life has turned around for the better. To commemorate surviving 2008, as a statement about myself and to myself, I decided to get my first tattoo... even though I have a profound fear of needles. After googling local tattoo shops, I came across Tattoolicious and I was impressed by the reviews I read and the artwork on their website. I met with Sean, whose artwork I particularly liked, for my initial consultation and he was more than warm, supportive, and encouraging. At my appointment a couple of weeks later, he went out of his way to ease my fears and he explained everything he was going to do. 3 hours later, I had a gorgeous full color koi fish tattoo with black kanji characters on my right shoulder. There was even an apprentice who took pictures of my tattoo as it progressed. My experience with Sean and Tattoolicious' front desk staff was soooo positive that I am booking another session to have a lotus flower and more kanji on my left shoulder. Go to Tattolicious. They are simply awesome.
