Awesome Tattoo Artists, Clean & Friendly Tattoo Shops Waikiki

With an artistic background in airbrushing, murals, and charcoal and pencil illustrations, I found my true passion when I discovered tattooing. This revelation led me to establish the Skin Factory Tattoo in 1995, aiming to attract the finest tattoo artists. While I appreciate all styles of tattooing, I specialize in fine line realism, both in color and black and grey. – Owner, Eddie Lin

What People are Saying

“The shop vibe was perfect”

“Eddie did an amazing job with a few pieces of work from our trip. The shop vibe was perfect and the crew at Skin Factory Tattoo was professional and a blast to be around. I even had an old tattoo that needed some repair and touch up work, Eddie was all over it and did not charge me. Will be back next year for more work.​”

Maui tattoo shop review

“Eddie did not disappoint!”

“I have many colorful tattoos already and was looking for a seasoned artist and shop who could bring this little guy to life in technicolor while visiting the big island. Eddie did not disappoint! I absolutely love it and I’m already dreaming of the next design to get done here when I come back! “

“We will he back! Mahalo!”

“Eddie did a great job!! Very professional and a true artist. We walked in last minute before we had to leave to catch our flight home. Eddie talked with us and got an idea of what we wanted and quickly sketched out exactly what we had in mind! Highly recommend!! We will he back! Mahalo!”

“This was the BEST first tattoo experience!”

This was the BEST first tattoo experience! Eddie was so welcoming and explained the entire process throughout. He helped me feel comfortable, and he was so gentle in the process. I felt little to no pain, and he only took 25 mins at most. Insane talent! I am leaving with a tattoo that already makes me excited to come back and get another one. Eddie and Dave had such welcoming and good energy, the whole experience was a blast.

Hoping to revisit for my next tattoo in 2025! Thank you so much Eddie!
