Tattoo Appointments and Scheduling

We prefer text or emails when requesting an appointment. We do not have a shop phone nor any type of secretary to handle any enquiry. We handle our schedules individually. We except all forms of payment. When texting us with your information, it is ok to send any references you may have collected. We will send you our personal links for deposits.

Samuel has been tattooing for almost 3 decades. He is usually booked for over a month in advance but will take in smaller tattoos on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons when can. Samuel takes deposits through Square App and will send you a deposit payment link when making an appointment. Please text him at 808-631-6130.

Kalin Mier has been tattooing for 10 years and apprenticed under Samuel. You can text him at 808-652-8088 or reach him at his email: Kalin is consistently booked a month in advance.

Thad Nakao has been tattooing for 26 years and has worked with Samuel over the past 20 years. He specializes in a variety of styles. You can text him at 808-634-4419. Email:

Keep in mind, It can also take up to 2 weeks for us to respond to an email inquiry, so please be patient. We will get back to you as soon as possible. It is better to text us if you can.

We also require a 100 dollar deposit to secure an appointment date. Nothing is set until that is received. When ready to make a deposit we will send you a deposit request through Square App, PayPal or Vemno to your phone number or email. Deposit is non refundable if we have done any artwork in advance and thoroughly engaged in the appointment process.

When submitting a query, it’s very important to provide us with most of the following.

If visiting the island, please include your travel dates. Keep in mind It’s better to book closer to the end of your trip to avoid any precious time in the sunshine and ocean. Any information pertaining to the work you are wanting, size and placement of the work you are seeking, and you may also send us any references you may have collected.

If your local, provide you preferable dates and any information pertaining to your tattoo.

When tattooing, we are a freight train of focus. We rarely take breaks unless you need one. There are no distractions in our studio. We are here to fulfill your intentions and give you 150% professionalism.

Aloha and we look forward to hearing from you.
