Aloha Given Daily at Honolulu's Queen Street Tattoo

Tattoo Artists2 min Read

Tucked amidst Oahu's booming tattoo scene is a tiny shop in Honolulu making big waves on the island.

Waikiki is a bustling tourist mecca filled with everything from high-end retail boutiques to chintzy souvenir shops, so it's easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of choices alone. But today, we're venturing off the beaten path to Kaka'ako — a post-industrial, up and coming district minutes down the road from the south shores main drag.

Founded in 2013 by Steve VonRiepen, the vibe at Queen Street, not unlike most places on Oahu, is low-key and anything goes. They accept walk-ins and appointments from noon to (usually) eight, seven days a week.
