I did some research before coming here for a tattoo. I had a tattoo idea I'd been working on for some time, and then my father passed away. I decided to incorporate a tattoo he had into my design. I brought it here, based on the reputation and positive reviews I found. Rita, who was very knowledgeable and thorough, first took the design and discussed with me what I was looking for before giving it to Brian. Brian worked on the design, and did the tattoo. He was VERY professional, friendly, and easy to work with, and made sure that it was exactly what I wanted before we even started. Well, in the end, it wasn't exactly what I imagined...it was BETTER! If you're looking for quality, professional work, don't waste your time going anywhere else!

One of the oldest if not the oldest on the island. Great work! Only draw back is they don't do much walk in stuff.

Wow! From when I walked in the door I knew I was in the right place! I was greeted with a smile and a warm hello...not a grunt and a snarl. \r \r The receptionists KNOW what they are doing...they not only know designs but all about all the details of getting a tattoo. I was scared but they put me right at ease with their information.\r \r The shop is clean. I mean CLEAN. Wow! My tattoo is fantastic, the experience was fantastic and I WILL BE BACK! I just had no idea what it could be all about but after the SKIN DEEP experience I understand. I think how I was treated in other shops I visited and how the staff treated me here...oh, boy! \r \r I was treated with respect by my artist who joked the whole time. Aftercare instructions were given verbally and written with phone and email contact. I felt like part of the family when I left!!\r \r I even got some tips on great restaurants and things to do while in Hawai...the real things to do! I just can not say enough about these people!! \r \r

My tattoo I got here is soooooooooo nice. I had a bad experience at another shop on the island. They not only fixed my old tattoo, but made it into something I now totally love. Went in hateing what I had on my body. Walked out in love with my new design that looks completely different from what I had started with. i would recommend this shop to everyone

Im really disappointed at how my tattoo came out. The lines arent clean and now I have to spend more money to find another tattoo shop who can cover it up for me.

Skin Deep Tattoo would have to be the best Tattoo shop I Know. They are highly clean, using very sterile equiptment as well as one time use needles. There lines are very sharp and accurate!! they have one tattoo artist, they call Sin, his sense of humor will keep you coming back its slightly off...but funny!!! It's across the street from planet Hollywood, down a small walkway, but if you hit Gucci and Tiffany's you have gone to far! turn around go back two stores......You will have to look for it. but well worth it!!

So many tattoo shops today have that 'take me or leave me' attitude....not so with Skin Deep Waikiki!! From the minute you walk into this quaint shop you are greeted and made to feel the 'aloha spirit' of Hawaii! They take time to qualify your thoughts and design ideas...not a production shop of get in here and get gone. This shop has been in the same location under the same owner for over 24 years...and we can see why! It's spotless, the tattooers explain everything (yeah, they actually TALK TO YA!) and give you clear and concise aftercare. Talk about feeling comfortable!! THIS PLACE IS IT!!
