You don't have to be a rock star to get a tattoo from Rock Star Tattoo, Piercing & Laser Tattoo Removal, but the work of the artists here might make you feel like one. Since 1999, the team has adorned Oahu locals and visitors with virtuosic body art and piercings. The most recent addition to the offerings is laser tattoo removal, which works more effectively than covering them with permanent marker every day. But if disguising unwanted ink is your goal, another option is a cover-up from tattoo artists H, Chris, and Lai, who specialize in them. The team also rocks Japanese-style tattoos, Polynesian tattoos, fine line work, and piercings.

At Face It Permanent Make Up Center, a team of skilled micropigmentation specialists, each certified by the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals, enhances faces with permanent makeup. Led by owner Edine Swain, who finds personal fulfillment in working with clients dealing with birth defects and scars from accidents or surgeries, the professionals take the time to talk with each client and understand his or her vision for elegant eyeliner or lips the color of a newborn fire engine.
While darkening brows or adding a starlet beauty mark, the artistic technicians employ micropigment colors—which, unlike traditional tattoo ink, don’t acquire a bluish tint over time. They calibrate the pigment with the utmost care, blending hues to match a client’s skin and hair or applying multiple shades of color to brows for a natural look. The professionals also specialize in correcting work performed at salons and in scar re-pigmentation, shading in the pale tissue left by surgical procedures or jobs as the Three Stooges’ carpentry teacher.
Artists at Pacific Soul Tattoo draw from 30 years of collective experience to ink custom art onto skin. Specialists in Asian- and Polynesian-styled tattoos, the needle-drawers regularly pay homage to clients’ heritage with buzzed-about traditional tribal designs or vivid sketches of Grandma’s pot roast. During a 30-minute consultation, clients chat with artists to describe their ideal body art, from black-and-white patterns to full-color portraits. Artists sketch original designs before transforming blank skin into a vibrant canvas. As some designs may take more than one hour, Groupon holders should confer with artists to determine the total duration and potential additional cost of large tattoos, complex designs, or decorating their every freckle with a visor. In addition to rigorously upholding sanitary standards such as sterilizing all equipment and discarding all disposable items after a single use, the shop’s tattoo artists are certified in blood-borne pathogens and can identify a germ from 10 paces.
